Bacon wrapped chicken---excellent. Potatoes au gratin----excellent. Sauteed spinach----excellent. The creme brulee for dessert was the best my wife and I have ever eaten.
Excellent upscale restaurant. Nice touch on the free glasses of champagne for our anniversary.

Before a Peace Center performance we had a delicious meal. The she crab soup was terrific. The filet mignon was so tender you could almost cut it with a fork. The veal special was superb. A great place for a group or a romantic meal.

After a perfect meal at Rick Erwin's, this one fell short. Waiter was extremely slow, shrimp and grits were good but not outstanding, and so the value just wasn't there. The outdoor seating was very nice as was the entertainment on the nearby outdoor stage, so the evening wasn't a bust.

The building is beautiful and the location is perfect. Perhaps that is why they feel they can charge so much! The food was average and so was the service. Went in for an early dinner so the restaurant was not very crowded. Service took very long. The table side Caesar salad was so salty we barely ate any of it. My husband had to send his steak back to be cooked again. The waitress brought it back in about minute looking exactly the same. We did not even finish our meal, After reading all the other good reviews, perhaps we just went on a bad night. Will not go back to find out.

We sat outside because this restaurant has a really nice terrace next to a fountain. They have an extensive wine list and hit all price points. The service was excellent. We had the crab & shrimp dip which was excellent along with sea bass and brussel sprouts. When we told them why we were in town (30th anniversary), they treated us to 2 glasses of champagne and strawberry cheesecake which was beautifully decorated on the plate. Thanks Larkins.
