    This is hands down the best food in the area. The ingredients are excellent and mostly locally sourced. The wine list is very different and everything we tried has been awesome. Love the jazz music on Wednesdays.

    When we first dined at Antebellum over two years ago, we fell in love with the food; however, what impressed us just as much as the food was the incredible service. Good food is easier to find than outstanding and knowledgable servers. We keep returning to Antebellum because of the service we receive. Thank you, Paul and Vincent, for always making our dinner so enjoyable.

    Had a wonderful night at Antebellum. The new smoked salmon app was delicious. I also had the heirloom tomato salad and that was not so good. The tomato which should have been the star of the app especially at this time of year, was a bit mushy. I also prefer my radish to be sliced thin, not just chopped into halves or fourths. But the rest of our meal was outstanding as usual.

    We had dinner at Antebellum to celebrate our 21st anniversary. We have been meaning to visit this restaurant for some time since we live in the area. We found the restaurant quiet and inviting, menu varied and inspiring, the service outstanding and the food was delicious and very tastefully presented. As a cook, I believe in presentation. I have always felt that you eat with yours eyes first. The seared scallops were outstanding as well as the chicken dish that my wife ordered. We will definitely be returning to this venue.

    Went for our anniversary dinner. I had the tenderloin of beef shoulder over couscous with eggplant and goat cheese. It was absolutely delicious. An unusual combination of flavors; Moroccan with the Anglo-Saxon of the grilled beef and of course the grilled okra. Spouse had the chicken breast with buttermilk, creamed corn and goat cheese. She said it was delicious. The apps were good, lamb sausage and Vidalia onion soup. Dessert was inventive, cornbread cake, but not as good as it could have been. Lacking a cohesiveness of flavor and texture. The real strength of Antebellum is its soups and entrees, but all dishes are very good. All in all a wonderful meal. Relaxed atmosphere and service was impeccable.

    Went to Antebellum on the night before we headed out to SanDestin for a long Labor Day weekend. Couldn't have been better! Had the beef tenderloin in Nicholas's special way. It was fabulous!! I am always so impressed with the different ways Nicholas prepares this dish and it seems to get better with each new style. He is a culinary genius!! Great way to kick-off the long weekend.

    This little gem of a restaurant is located in a tiny town about 25 minutes north of our home. I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner celebration from a recommendation in our neighborhood. He loved it! I loved the charm, the clean feel of the décor, the excellent food starters/entrees (we had a difficult time choosing!), the prompt service, even parking was not that difficult to find. We will be back for more!

A quiet, gentle place where the folks really take pride in delivering a friendly, quality dining experience. Great care and personal attention is given to every detail and you feel at home and welcome. I am quite creative with food and this restaurant is just the type of place I would love to have. Great gin and tonic too.

    My second time here ~ actually went through Flowery Branch to get to the Smokey Mountains to eat here.This time I was joined by some friends from Atlanta. The waitress that I had last July, Chrissa, recognized me and welcomed me back. Our waiter for this evening was Vincent. I have always wanted to try the fried green tomato appetizer since I saw it on the website. Fried green tomatoes with bacon jam, brioche, fried egg, hot sauce and Mimosa ice The bacon jam should be packaged and sold. Our waiter, Vincent, explained the proper way to eat it. The tenderloin was outstanding with a great presentation. Finished with chocolate bread pudding Wish I lived closer, but this will be a once a year at least ~ it is an 8 hour drive from Cincinnati

    The fried chicken was some of the best I've EVER had! My plate had three juicy, lightly seasoned and battered chicken pieces, served with mashed potatoes and freshly prepared cream corn from a local farmer market. Home made banana pudding.....the best! Our server was very professional in his presentation and kept a timely eye on our table. I love the ambience, as it is small and quiet. Perfect for spending some quality time with my sweetheart.

    We have been dining at Antebullum for a couple years now, and have written several reviews recommending it to one and all. It is truly a gem. The food, the owners, and the staff are all top shelf in our opinion. We will soon be leaving the F Branch area to return to family up north. Although there are many fine restaurants there, we know we will never find a place quite like Antebellum again. If you have never been to Antebellum, do yourself a favor ang go.

    Entrées of salmon, lamb, chicken and shrimp were excellent in both presentation and taste and served hot and quickly. The food was prepared with a combination of flavors and senses; sweet, savory, crunchy, smooth that made for a delightful experience. Our waiter was very pleasant and polite but not at all intrusive. The wine was wonderful (An Australian white). Dessert was yummy cobbler and carrot cake, and the coffee was hot. We had requested a quieter area when making the reservation, so we were sat in a room off of the main dining room that only had 3 tables. It was still noisy, but we could carry on a conversation without too much struggle.

    We had to visit Antebellum before we headed to Europe for 11 days. Went on Thursday July 24th and had a spectacular dinner. Great beef tenderloin that was prepared to perfection. Washed it down with an Ehlers Cabernet Sauvignon that was just as wonderful. Got us in the vacation mood that evening. I've come to the conclusion that Nicholas is a culinary genius!!!

    Antebellum was close to home (Suwanee) and the food and wine were excellent. The fried green tomatoes, delicious! I had the salmon and it was amazing. My husband was a little jealous because, although his lamb was cooked perfectly, my salmon was just a little bit better. I tasted his lamb and the side dish with it was wonderful. I woke up the next morning thinking of how delicious everything was The bartender and waiter were extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Overall, everything was perfect. The only thing that I'm wondering about is if they change the menu seasonally because there were only about five choices for entrees and apps. I'm dying to go back, but worry that I might get tired of the same dishes!
