Thanksgiving dinner was a good idea for those who didn't want to cook. food was good. Maybe next time have few more desert options and possibly have someone serving food in the buffet line.

Their Thanksgiving day dinner was such a big help for my family. I have two small children and my husband just had surgery which has left him unable to help with anything. At first I was trying to figure out how to have an abbreviated Thanksgiving to be able to handle it all then we saw the advertisement for Thanksgiving dinner. We were able to still have ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, pecan pie, pumpkin pie and everything else which makes Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving.

It was a busy night at Combine with tables full and groups of people which made the kitchen backed up and slow. While my meal was good, my order (the special of prime rib, mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus was cold when I received it and the doneness of my meat was overdone. When she delivered it, she mentioned that the meat doneness was the closest to what I had ordered and offered to get something else. I declined this because the kitchen was still busy and likely behind and I did not want to wait longer for another entrée. She offered a dessert but we did not wish to have one. She was professional and apologized and said that she would forward my comments and concerns. This was absolutely not typical for all of our previous dining experiences at Combine. Both my wife and I were pleased that they were doing good business and hope it continues.

I had never tried the salmon here, and it was outstanding. The risotto that came with it was very delicious. Service is always outstanding.

Overall our experience was great. We had two in our party that needed gluten free and were told by the waitress they didn't have a lot of options. So, if you have dietary restrictions it might be best to call first and see what options you will have, otherwise salads are the safest option.

Our service was excellent from the bartenders for our pre-dinner cocktail to our outstanding, attentive waitress . She was top notch and very busy, but did not miss a beat. All of our food was delicious. Our only disappointment was that the duck was not available, but one can’t complain about a product you just can’t get in. We understood. No question we’ll be back!

I was a little disappointed in the fish special…..just not to my liking. The service was great. We had a air conditioner blowing on us and our server had it adjusted. Thanks for that! People were careful about masking up while moving about and we felt good about the distance between tables. I will be back!

Had a reservation. Waited 45 min. She forgot us! Tough steak, very expensive, no baked potatoes, everything has garlic! I hate garlic! Very loud. Waitress was nice. No prime rib on a Saturday night!

We have raved about the combine to many friends and have had fabulous meals there before. Last night the food was good, but not up to par. Husband’s ribeye was great and my salmon was great. Disappointed in our favorite asparagus and my risotto was under cooked. Again, not bad food, just not the level we have raved about before. Will definitely return, but ask more questions of the server about cooking choices.

Tried the Blackened Shrimp Scampi with fettuccine . Delicious (in one word)! Our server, Tara, was excellent (10 out of 10) making a great wine recommendation that instantly became our "go to" for future dinners. Paired the Scampi with a Plantation salad and my wife had the beef stew (soup) instead of salad. Could have made a delicious meal with a couple of bowls! Combine is predictably excellent.
