“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

The food was delicious, fresh, unique (in a very good way) and well plated. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the service was just fine. Nice job Bantam, will come again.

“Mediocre food, S-L-O-W service, felt ignored”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

My elderly mother and I stopped here for late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Weren't more than eight customers when we arrived. Put in our drink orders which arrived promptly, then ordered food. And waited. And waited. Meanwhile, two couples were seated near us got all kinds of attention from the manager. After 20 minutes, no food, not able to get attention of wait staff we were getting ready to leave when the food finally arrived, with no apology for the wait. The table with two couples? Food flew out of the kitchen for them. My mother ordered a/bowl of soup and an order of fries. I had a bowl of soup and veggie wrap. The fries were excellent. The tomato soup and French onion soup were OK. Wrap for veggie wrap was stale. Total bill
was over $25 and we didn't have alcohol.
Bottom line, if you are a middle aged woman with her elderly mother, might want to find a place caters to more than young couples.

“Great food - just 2 doors down from The Pearl”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great for lunch or dinner. Nice, casual atmosphere. Express lunches are a good value. Some of my favorites are the shrimp and grits, the brussel sprouts, the burger, the bantam chicken.

“We love it!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Excellent food! We love this restaurant because of their local and healthy ingredients, creative menu, and friendly staff. Two minor criticisms are that they are sometimes short staffed which means a little bit of a wait, and I wish there were more gluten free dessert options (chocolate!).

“Fantastic food, large wine selection and local brews”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

My wife and I eat at Bantam at least once per week. The food is fantastic, the wine selection is large and unique and they serve local brews. There's a large bar and bar area for the size of the restaurant and booths if you prefer your privacy.

Our personal favorite menu item is the salmon (under $20). We eat salmon a lot, every chance we can, so we're discriminating on this. I tried the filet mignon for the first time this week, it melts in your mouth. Here's the menu:

In addition to great food, Bantam has a great atmosphere. The pace is set by manager Russell who treats us like family and this attitude plays out in excellent customer service from the hostess, wait staff and bartenders.

When everything about a restaurant is great, and that's true of Bantam Grill, it points to great ownership and management.
