Jack and I went here for dinner after a long day of walking. I made a reservation and asked for a quiet table; we got it. Then I asked to be moved away from the fan; we got it - all with a smile. The menu made it hard to decide what to order, but the special: mahi mahi on... More

Good food, good service, nice atmosphere. My husband had crab cakes, I had blackened salmon both delicious. Server was knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. Drinks were wonderful and it wasn't overly pricey.

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.

After a late night at a conference we stopped here for dinner, great food and service. My wife had the She crab soup and i had a double cut pork chop. Both were very good

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
