My friend and I stopped in for dinner after work. This restaurant did not disappoint! I had the 3 Beast Bolognese off the daily specials menu. The meat was a combination of ground lamb, pork and beef. Delish! Everything comes ala carte like in a traditional steakhouse. I split a side of roasted asparagus and mac and cheese with my... More

It's been well over a year since my last review of this SouthPark mainstay and it was time for a refresh. We ate there with another couple on Sunday night. We sat outside, under cover in case a storm came through. As I said in my last review, we almost always go for sides. This time started out no different... More

Great ambiance! Food was better than average...but yes, varying portion sizes among the choices, but regardless...awesome eats! Service - did we have a waiter? is that good, or bad? just didn't have much of a personality. maybe because the hostess ran circles around him....in a good way. Hostess - best part of the trip. Professional, straight forward, and the right... More

My friend and I met here for a late lunch. I had dined here before and it was excellent. This was my friends first time. I ordered the crispy chicken liver. Yes, I know this is a love it or hate it item. It was delicious and a very generous portion. Then I ordered a salad and was really disappointed... More

Great food, sassy server. We couldn't believe this person who waited on us. This place came well recommended and we enjoyed the food, but it was overshadowed by the rude server. We'll go back, but not right away.

Rustic decor with a slightly modern twist. Try everything if you can! Don't miss the duck confit, mussels, fried okra and dessert! The coconut cake and strawberry shortcake were a perfect end to a fabulous meal!

This is a very popular restaurant both at Uptown and Southpark. Menu is a bit odd but the food is very good. Service was excellent. Beer menu also very good. This is a very solid choice if in Southpark. As far as the food goes, the scalloped potatoes are a must and the chicken and fish are both excellent.

Went here during a business trip after recommendation from my hotel. Very nice and interested waitress, fantastic food with a lot of southern touch. Great bar as well and the overall ambience is perfect.

Roosters was a wonderful choice for a group of 22 in town for a wedding weekend. The manager was extremely helpful in meeting our needs when I called to inquire about a private room, kids meals, separate checks, and wheelchair accessibility. Nice wine selection, good menu that met a wide variety of appetites. Downside was that they ran out of... More

The location / exterior does not do justice to the ambience and experience. Food - Good but not spectacular. The charcuterie, mussels, burger and gelato are tasty. Service - Excellent. Waiter was very pleasant and attentive! Atmosphere - Very modern design with open kitchen.

Thank Klokas
