“Great shrimp and grits and wonderfully relaxing porch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Went their with wife and kids for Easter. Sat on porch which was wonderful. The porch had one of the best views of the bridge and town. Our server was very sweet and attentive. We had eaten their years ago when it was under different ownership and loved their clam chowder, but they didn't have it. The food was good, my pesto pasta was a little chewy. The absolute hands down best item we had was the shrimp and grits. It has a slightly spicy sauce that really complimented the two flavors. I would definitely try it again, but this time order the shrimp and grits for my entree.

“Awesome food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

The food here is so well presented and tastes delicious. We actually got to meet the chef. The wait staff is right on the ball yet never intrusive. This is a bit more upscale yet is casual in attire. We were also allowed a tour of the Gibson Inn.

“GIBSON IN RESTURANTE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We tried to have dinner there. From the moment we got there things started to go wrong. Ordering the first drink, to ordering the oysters. I said, " to my husband we need to go. Things did get worse before we left the restaurant. Drink wasn't right, the oysters did not have horseradish or cocktail sauce. The waitress did not know the menu. They couldn't find the bartender? What the heck is that all about.

“Excellent tasty food in nice friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Wonderful food, great service, varied menu - would recommend the home cooked potato chips with bacon dip and the savoury cheesecake. Will definitely go back if passing through again.

“Nice evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

A restaurant in a very nice hotel with typical architecture of the south. We dine on the outdoor terrace. A very pleasant evening despite mid December. Excellent food. This is a place to spend a wonderful evening.
