Food was good, however service was slow. Noisy when tables are full.

From talking with the waitress, it sounds like this restaurant has been in it's location for 30 years. Restaurants don't last that long unless there's a reason. There are lots of reasons at this one. A menu that made it hard to decide. The lamb and mushroom ragout with goat cheese rav was pretty fantastic. I didn't regret going off the diet reservation for a night. Really well executed dense dark chocolate dessert. Very good service.

Wish I lived here so I could be a regular.

Definitely make a reservation in advance if you can. Enjoyed brunch at the bar with lovely service from the bartender. Grey shrimp with cheese grits and my mom had the veggie Benedict - also delicious! Mimosas are only $4.50 but are pre-mixed so a little heavy on the OJ for my taste. Great restaurant in a cute neighborhood...def worth checking out!

We were at a table literally right at the door and we were constantly being bumped by the hostess. There should not have been a table there. Tables were also very small. The food and service was good but just not what I expected. We may try again when the weather is nicer and we can sit outside.

Nothing wrong here, just not on that superior level for the little extras. For example: green beans cooked well but no sauce or any pluses. Same with the crab cake, very good quality, cooked well, just nothing extra.

I was very excited to dine at 300 East and enjoy the salmon. I have food restrictions and learned that the salmon and most other meats already have seasoning on it. Had to order the chicken which was nothing fantastic and requested the veggies with no butter or seasoning. Veggies were served with tons of butter.
Server also seemed annoyed we did not order wine or dessert.
I’ve been to 300 East before and had a wonderful meal. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone who has food restrictions.

Easter menu was fresh and exciting. Table was ready moments after our arrival. Service was excellent, server quite pleasant. Quite an enjoyable experience which was more surprising on a busy holiday. Kitchen and front staff obviously work well together. Lovely meal.

It takes me 50 minutes to get here, so I don’t come as often as I would if I were close by. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. Unpretentious, yet an always inventive menu. I’ve never seen a misstep here. I know I’m in for a wonderful meal shared with friends: a sure bet. Highly recommend!

Excellent service, very good food - we had the broiled scampi special and the pimento cheese appetizer. Desserts were decent - nothing special about the brownie, but the ice cream sandwich was great. Very good wine selection!

Best part was a very extensive gluten free menu and a very knowledgeable server who made sure we were aware of the options - including gluten free crackers for the pimento cheese!!!

Will definitely be back!

You really can't go wrong with 300 East. We took visitors passing through town and they were so pleased there were vegan and gluten-friendly options available. Weekend brunch can have wait times, but our visit on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 was perfect, with our table being ready immediately.

So loud. We were sitting around a small table and had to shout it each others' ears. There are booths that looked like they may have been quieter but we were stuck in the middle of the second floor. It was dark to, and not in a good way. Our server had checked out long ago and was just going through the motions. The Chef's Veggie plate was two different kinds of chick pea salads, some asparagus drowning in butter and bread. Seriously? The sorbet of the day was cucumber, but one of the other deserts came with sweat potato sorbet so I asked for a scoop of that. No, said the manager. There's no way to serve one sorbet in the place of another. So much for service. How hard would that have been really? Portions were small and we all left hungry. Will never go back.

Seated immediately we were glad we had made reservations as we encountered a number of people waiting after finishing our meal. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Menu options suited all three of us and we were pleased with our choices. Dessert of white chocolate brioche pudding was exceptional.

The tuna lunch was awesome. Service was good. The shrimp sandwich was pitiful. Maybe 4 shrimp total. Tables too close together, table too small. Poor place for a business lunch maybe ok for a quick bite with one close friend. Thanks
