It was very nice to be able to reserve a table for six for Saturday night. The food and service were excellent. Our wait person, Evelyn, was wonderful! The chocolate brownie for the birthday girl was an added bonus. We will be back.

This is a great restaurant for Sunday Brunch. The service wa excellent and our server was pleasant and attentive. The food was fresh and locally sourced. I like that you can make a reservation since we were going to the matinee at DPAC. I had the Crab Cake Benedict and it was very good. Others at our table had the Smokehouse bacon omelette and “twice-baked” creamy grits and they enjoyed their dishes as well.

Always enjoy the different seasonal menu options. Love that you will split menu options because my husband and I have limited appetites. Very friendly service and most attentive. We bring our friends here when they have not tried it and everyone enjoys the evening and has a great meal.

My dates meal was very tasty. My meal was over cooked (salmon) and the Texas Pete glaze wasn’t good. My green beans were very bland. I also had whipped sweet potatoes, which were the highlight of my meal. I was disappointed in the quality of my meal especially since I’ve had the exact same meal in the past and was very good.

The food and service here are always good. I like that they change the menu seasonally.

Last night I had the trout which was cooked perfectly but seemed to lack something. My dining partner had the black bean cakes that are a regular menu item. They are delicious and filling.

I will say the chairs are looking worn and could stand to be refinished or replaced.

We were in town for one night and our hotel recommended this nearby restaurant in the Cary section of Raleigh. We were extremely pleased! There were four of us dining and we each ordered something different; we were all very pleased with our dishes as well as our appetizer and deserts. The ambience has a sophisticated air but the service is relaxed and very friendly and professional. We, being from New York, were shocked by the honor system jar to buy the hot sauce that they sell! If we are ever in this area again, we would most definitely return!

This restaurant is a favorite. The food is fresh and delicious, the service is friendly and attentive, never pushy. We made reservations and were seateds right away.
This is Sothern fare kicked up a notch or two. I've enjoyed their black bean cakes, salmon salad and pulled pork with Johnny cakes in the past all very good. I especially enjoy the southern sides like braises cabbage and collard. Serving sizes are generous here so plan on taking half of your plate home if you want to indulge in dessert. The almond cake is a favorite in our house. I would say they are appropriately priced considering quality, quantity and the level of service.

Always a good experience but nothing special! Service was slower than normal for a weekday night prior to 5:30. Patio dining was pleasant and quiet.

The food and service were good as always, especially for a holiday. We didn't see our waiter that often but understood he had several large parties, and we were well taken care of by food runners and additional staff. The manager even brought our to-go items to the table and processed the check. As someone who worked as a server through college, I always appreciate seeing every level of the staff working together to take care of their patrons.

At here for Easter - what is nice is this is not a chain with predictable menu or standard pub food. Menu is different and food has flavor. Service has always been good. Price is reasonable.

I have dined at this restaurant several times making reservations through open table. I have expressed several times that I prefer not to be seated near the kitchen, service area, or entrance. I have been seated in these areas the past 2 times I've eaten here. I have used open table at a 5 star establishment and found great value in the specific profile information of diners and do not understand why this establishment refuses to utilize and prioritize the preferences given.

Lovely experience for brunch on Saturday We were enjoying a rare day out with my wheelchair bound Mom, and the restaurant was wonderful. First, it was truly accessible allowing Mom to get to the table without disturbing other diners. Next, the server was so helpful and attentive, making us feel quite at home. The food was great, too, so we enjoyed an unhurried, enjoyable meal. Looking forward to going back.
