Impeccable food and service. Filet mignon was incredible. Service was over-the-top. One minor point of criticism: Five medium size shrimp for 12.95 is a bit steep. In my opinion the best restaurant in Central South Carolina. They could hang with the best in Charleston! :-)

We have been coming for years and have never had an experience other than superb. My in-laws always want to come when they are in town and Johnathan always remembers where they are from and welcomes them back. We love it here.

Great food, great service, great drinks, great atmosphere. What more would anyone want? We dined here on a Friday evening and were seated immediately. The wait staff was attentive and knew the menu well to describe how the food was prepared.
