“Small town sizzle with big city bite!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

My bf and I are in a long distance relationship and decided to meet halfway in Valdosta for the weekend. We weren't encouraged that there would be a lot for us to do but we read other reviews for this restaurant and were hopeful that at least we'd have a pleasant dining experience - and that we did!!
306 North is a great find in a small town; an exciting menu with fine dining offerings offered at chain restaurant prices - we had apps, drinks and 2 entrees and spent less than $75 before the tip.
There are still a few kinks that demonstrate they're not quite 5 star caliber yet(bruschetta in the smoked duck appetizer was burnt, and I looked at our cocktails sitting on the bar top FOREVER before our server went to grab them) but the overall experience was still rather enjoyable, and the sincerity of the staff says they're working hard to get there.
Above everything, small town hospitality is in ample supply and you enjoy a great meal with none of the stuffiness the menu might suggest you should expect. If Valdosta is in your travel path anytime soon, do your taste buds a favor and pop in to 306 North, it's well worth it!

“Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

This past weekend was my 21st birthday. My boyfriend lives in Michigan so we rarely see each other because of the long distance and our hectic school schedules. I thought I was meeting my parents at 306 North but when I showed up my boyfriend had surprised me instead. Everybody including the 306 North staff was in on it. The staff was incredible and so sweet! They set us up in our own room, had flowers on the table and made sure everything was perfect for us. The drinks were amazing as well as the food. It was a great atmosphere and we felt very special the whole time we were there. I can wait to go back. Thanks to everyone at 306 North for making my 21st birthday the best one yet!

“Wish it had been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

We came here as a second choice, first restaurant was closed. Great looking, American cuisine menu. Average wine list. Prices fine for food offered. Beautiful building, easy parking. Very attentive service, if somewhat unpolished. Dirty plates stayed on table too long. otherwise, service very sweet and polite. She crab soup excellent. Caesar salad missing croutons, quesadillas missing sour cream. All three entrees over cooked. Filet ordered medium had no pink, presented well done. Salmon filet very thin and also overcooked. Scallops beautifully sauced, also cooked 2 minutes too long. Such a shame, with tiny adjustments from the kitchen, would have given it 4.5 to 5 stars. On the up side, we had 3 children with us and they were very accommodating to our family. Would try again, maybe we caught the chef on an off night.

“One of my newest favorite restaurants A+”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

306 North was great! I'm a college student and the prices are higher than most restaurants, but the quality of the food is better as well. I enjoyed the service the two times I've gone. I highly recommended the pork loin, duck, cabbage, and spinach salad. The second time I went, I ordered scallops and they're pretty small. I will stick to the pork loin. My fiance adores the ribeye steak too! Each time I've went, the bill has been $60+ and we didn't mind because the food was great! Tipping the servers more than 20 percent was not a problem for us. I will go back to this place, and cannot wait until it gets hot to sit on the patio portion.

“A Gem in the Rough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Passing through Valdosta for the first time, we decided to visit the old town section as we often do in a new city. Downtown Valdosta is depressing but 306 North made the trip all worthwhile.

The young bartender and waiter were both students at the local university and their service and demeanors were impeccable. True, young, southern gentlemen.

The room was very appealing and the Maitre-D made us feel at home in a friendly, professional way. He suggested a wonderful Austrian white wine ($4 during Happy Hour), and then a Washington State Red with dinner when our first choice was not available. Both were superb, as was his service.

The food was magnificent. I had the chicken cordon blue and my wife enjoyed the recommended redfish. The gouda grits accompaniment was wonderful. Sam the chef made a point of coming by and ensuring dinner met our approval. We had full dinners, desert, and a bottle of wine for $75 before tip.

We only wish we could transplant this gem to upstate New York.
