The food was average with below average service. We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance of the town, but will not return.

Informal luncheon for 20-24 people. We were afforded an excellent choice of entrees and an over-the-top dessert. Quality of food and service was a perfect 10.

Second time eating here and not disappointed. I highly recommend making reservations as this is a small place. The food is good and the menu is creative. The staff was super friendly. This is a somewhat pricey place for the portions on some dishes.

Dinner was amazing. What a great surprise 247 Craven was. Fried green tomato appetizer, special fish entree and strawberry cake dessert. All were very good! Highly recommend.

They don't post their menu because it's almost a farm to table restaurant. The menu changes so often based on what they can get fresh...when we were there I had the best caprese with pickled ginger and arugula. It was really... More
