    Excellent food and , service - there was a party of about 60 in the adjacent room which made it loud, but all in all one of the best dining experiences in many months- we will certainly be back. Better than every restaurant on south side, hands down.

    I love having lunch here. It has become my favorite lunch spot with my friends. The fried oysters at lunch are delicious. I usually get two sides with them…great choice of sides also. I enjoy the okra, fried green tomatoes, cucumber/feta salad or fingerling potatoes. The service is always excellent. The staff is very friendly and I feel like the cost of this great lunch is very reasonable.

    We had a lovely evening. The food was excellent and plentiful. The wait staff was kind and professional however I felt they were a bit understaffed, especially as more people arrived. At this price point, your customer's really want to feel pampered. I will certainly go back to Daniel George and hope this feedback provides management with meaningful feedback to improve upon your already excellent restaurant.

    Everything was great except when hoping for a quiet and romantic dinner setting we were seated right next to a large and loud group who made it hard to talk with each other without being drowned out.

    I took my daughter to lunch at Daniel George yesterday. It was delicious. I had the fried oysters with 2 vegetables and my daughter had the crab cakes with 2 vegetables. The service was excellent. This has become my favorite lunch spot because of the food selection, the good service, and the setting. We will definitely be going back soon.

    We celebrated our 28th anniversary at DG. DG was the perfect choice for excellent food and to have nice conversation. DG could improve their atmosphere by playing soft background music. The atmosphere was a bit sterile. Overall, a great experience and we plan to return.

    Service was very disappointing. There were four ladies at our table. All of people at our table felt very rushed. Our reservations were at 12:30pm. At the end of our time it was almost unbearable. Noise level was initially unbearable and we noticed a quiet table at a nearby adjoining room which was almost empty. Our hostess was very polite. Our server was not. I will think twice about booking this restaurant for lunch again based on this experience.

    Reservation were for 7p.m. on a Saturday. We were greeted and seated promptly. The waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. The vegetable plate and crab cake with broccolini were chosen, (vegan and pescatarian). The entrees were brought out and the presentation was nice. However, both were lukewarm, not up on temperature, but very flavorful. It’s a small, crammed space so the noise level is a bit high. Overall, it was a good experience.
