I read mixed reviews about this restaurant, so I was apprehensive initially. The restaurant is literally well hidden. It is in an historic building in an alleyway near Mulberry and Cherry Streets. As others have said, you walk through a smoking bar to the dining room; but that is not an unpleasant experience. Neither does the smoke smell continue into... More

Great place. Steaks were great and they had some nice items on the menu. I wanted to try more than 1! Location is a little odd as it is in the cross section of alleys off Cherry St (Behind the Rookery) see that review! Very old style classic place. Old warehouse that has a nice old world feel to it.... More

A quaint little eatery off the main road down a small alley nestled among other trendy restaurants. A very limited beer menu with NO draft beer available! The menu, although limited, offered options for everyone.

Traveling it is sometimes hard to find a good restaurant while driving down the freeway, so when my wife picks something out of the blue, the adventure begins. We were treated to a very nice dinner at the Downtown Grill. Food was delicious, portions were all the right size, and the service was attentive and knowledgeable. Prices were good, always... More

This would have been five stars except for the location of the restaurant. The food was delicious and service was perfect. This is as close to a fine dinning experience you will find in Macon or anywhere else for that matter. The only problem was leaving the restaurant and walking to the car. You just do not feel safe in... More

This hidden place has a smoking bar that you walk through to get to the dining area. The knowledgeable waitress told us the very delicious sounding specials. As we ordered, many of the specials were no longer available. I opted for one of the steak specials. As I attempted to cut my medium rare steak, it was VERY charred on... More

We booked a table through OpenTable on short notice and got seated right on time. The front of the restaurant is a bar area that has cigars for sale. This is not a good thing if you're sensitive to smell as the whole place (restaurant included) smells like cigars. The restaurant side is kind of cool and dark. Our food... More

Went there for a business dinner with three other people and very impressed. As others have described the interior is a bit outdated but not an issue to me, I'm there for the food!!! They have a small menu but that is supplemented with a really big "special" menu each night of which our great server (Naomi I think) was... More
