“Southern specialities at a great local bar/ restaurant”
Review of 2108 State - CLOSED

Try their ordering a from the nightly specials menu. Their 2108 state street pasta is delicious and the portions are large. Their crispy flounder rivals local fine dining restaurants at a fraction of the price. I like that you can choose from any salad or any side dish to accompany your meal. There's no extra charge if you want to change from fries to fried green tomatoes or a spinach salad with strawberries. They also have terrific burgers with unusual but delicious toppings. The dishes are all a great value.

Have been here half dozen times and enjoyed very much. We recommend the Collard Green Eggrolls and and of the daily specials, they are all very good. They have a neighbor hood bar area as well as a separate dinning area suitable for family's with young children.

The place looks promising, until you actually look around and see what is going on. Most of the employees either looked intoxicated or smelled like pot. The kitchen areas (that could be seen) were disgusting and not one glove was seen or hand washing for that matter. The service, (If you could get any even though the place isn't busy. Wonder why.) Was a joke. The food was the best part but that isn't saying much. There were great menu items but ideas are not to be eaten, food is. The burgers were burnt tasting and greasy, the fry chips tasted like burnt fish, and the cheese sticks tasted the same. Not one rest room had soap in the dispenser and the general cleanliness was sub par to say the least. As we were leaving I actually noticed an employee walking out of the back "catering/prep" area smoking a cigarette where I noticed food was stored. I will never go back and don't recommend this poor establishment. It will not be around much longer before someone gets deathly ill.

This place is a very casual eating establishment. One side is a friendly type sports/road house bar and grill. The other side is casual dining room. Overall a fun and local friendly place for lunch. My wife ordered the ribeye steak sandwich and I had a bacon blue cheese burger; both were huge and came with home made chips. The food was very good and certainly a good value.

Went in at an early time for dinner so any small things like food temps should not be a problem normally. Everything was tasty. We had the 5 alarm burger and chicken wings. For sides we had hand cut waffle fries and fried green tomato wedges. Had we dined later we could have had the ever changing nightly dinner specials. The beer selection is ample for draft and bottle and mixed drinks are available. We hope to go back for the Saturday brunch which looks great. If we do I will report on it.
