First visit. Food was very well prepared. Definitely a 'go back' kind of place ... and we plan to!
Server was very friendly, willing to get answers to questions we had about menu items (and admitted to being relatively new), but missed several opportunities to excel (had to be prompted on a couple things.

Also, the establishment indicated they didn't operate with the OpenTable reservations system. Not. problem as there were plenty of tables ... but could have been a real dilemma if they were full. Somewhere there is a disconnct.

The service was good but the food was mediocre. The restaurant had very little ambience.

We Love Early Girl and now that they have 3 locations, it is so much easier to get to them.
My favorite is the Eggs Benedict (with hollandaise or tomato gravy). Jack enjoyed the meatloaf and had enough to take some home. John enjoyed one of the 3 specials of the night: breaded chicken something.
As we usually think of Early Girl for breakfast, it was delightful to go for dinner and have the full offerings from the bar as well.
We will be back! Hard to choose: the charm and character of Early Girl Eatery on Wall Street or the proximity and availability (it was not crowded) of Early Girl Eatery on Haywood. Will have to try the new one on Merrimon, too!

Great food, wonderful service! Oh, and this may be the ONLY restaurant on Haywood Road that has ample parking.
