Our server was absolutely wonderful! I got the autumn pasta with chicken and my husband got a burger. Boy did I order the wrong thing! (Don't get me wrong, the pasta was good, but I tasted his burger, and that was the best burger I've ever had!) Now I know what to get when we go again.

Stopped in for an early supper on a Saturday night. Did not have reservations but Ed was able to accommodate us. Started with the wings ordered from the downstairs bar and had the salmon Caesar salad and the red snapper. Both very good dishes. Wine and beer was good and they have extensive lists for both. Finished up with a... More

This is a farm to table restaurant. The meal was excellent as was the service and decor. Our waiter Ed was attentive but not a pest. The crab cakes are delicious! We would definitely eat here again!

We were looking for something rather late on a Thursday evening and found a gem. Only had one table available at 8:00 and it was a comfortable and private booth. Menu was extensive with pretty good wine list to compliment it. Server was as good as any you'd find in the most expensive big city restaurants. Highly recommend this Marietta... More

The friends we were with had eaten there before and had raved about the place. The menu was quite attractive and looked promising. It was a busy Saturday night and there was a large party in the private dining room. Nevertheless it took almost 1.5 hours after ordering to be served with the main course. One of us didn't order...

Awesome beer selection, try the Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter. Boyfriend liked the Einstock (can't remember but similar to Blue Moon). Bathrooms are cute. We didn't have any food but will definitely next time! Crowd was friendly and laid back, bartender too!

We were visiting the area for the first time and given this restaurant as a recommendation. We began with cocktails -martinis, which were average. We ordered the baguette and tomatoe relish as an appetizer, but did not realize that we were going to receive a complimentary similar bread plate before dinner. We would not have ordered the appetizer, although it... More

I had one of the best meals ever at this restaurant. You may sit inside or they have a nice outside patio. The dress is very casual. Our waiter Ed was very knowledgeable and remembered our extensive order without writing it down. Most of the food is local and my flat iron steak came from a local farmer. It was... More
