After all the good reviews I definitely wanted to check this place out. Not so sure that was a good idea! We called ahead (30 minutes) for seating and once we arrived (30 minutes later) it took about 20 minutes to be seated. It was a very nice touch that they gave us appetizers as we waited. That day it was 70 degree and they still had the heat on, so it was about 80 degrees in the restaurant. The wait staff was sweating like crazy which was nasty and they said we would have to wait at least 20 more minutes to get outside seating, so we took the indoor seating (big mistake).
The service was quick at first, but declined after that. Our waitress was really nice, but seamed to have more tables then she could handle. We order the "Thai Poppin" shrimp appetizer and it was wonderful. For my entree I ordered the "Grilled Bistro Steak" (medium) and it was cooked perfectly, but almost flavorless. It looked like a mess of steak, mashed potatoes, broccoli and mushrooms thrown on a plate with a drizzle of nearly flavorless sauce. Needless to say, I was very disappointed given the overly positive reviews. I can get a more flavorful steak at Long Horn Steak House. The sides (mashed potatoes and broccoli) were mediocre filler that took almost no thought or creativity.
My fiancé ordered the "Carolina Burger" and it was almost as lackluster as the steak. It was all show and no go, because it looked great, but had little flavor. The only shining star was the excellent potato salad that came with it.
Needless to say, I would not spend good money or waste my time to come back to this place. It's an overpriced tourist trap.
