Located in an old cigar factory which is quite pretty but creates a loud atmosphere. The food is typically southern and really well done.

Came in by accident but found a good place for southern food. Inside is quite dark so we had a table outside. Very ample dishes , so if you're hungry , this is a good place. Fried chicken with Mac and cheese was delicious , and very filling . I think you will enjoy this place.

I went to this restaurant years ago and it was awesome but the last visit just wasn't the same. Someone brought out our one meal and said would you like two plates and we said "we ordered two meals". They were non apologetic and let the first meal sit and get cold while preparing the second and didn't offer any... More

My wife and I always look forward to a dinner at Sassafras. This time around I had the spicy pork and grits for appetizer. My favorite. Just the right amount of spice. Big enough to be a meal. I then had the southern salad and added blackened chicken. Again, large helping and very fresh and filling. My wife had the... More

We came to Sassafrass Bistro for dinner one night. It is a very dark restaurant but it does have windows on one of the downtown mall areas. My husband had the Black Angus Meatloaf and I had Pecan Crusted Rainbow Trout and we started with fried pickles. The food was very good and so was the service. I would recommend... More

A large party, A birthday celebration, A sweet potato cake brought in by the sorority sisters... all flowed well at this cute restaurant. Clearly, they have had occasions like this before! Entrees were met with varying degrees of excitement, but particularly enjoyed the 8oz filet mignon topped with the pimento cheese! Service was accommodating and my only regret was being... More

Enjoyed this place for an anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. They had a good selection of dishes and there was plenty to eat. My favorite was an appetizer: pimento cheese fondue with homemade chips.

Nice bar area and food is always great. Try the tuna over grits. Dark bar area near door and half off wine nights as well. Great downtown spot.
