    The place was a horrible experience they ran out of food on a Friday night and had no dishes clean. We left because the service was awful and the people took forever to take our order. I would not recommend this place.

    We were turned around when we arrived due our reservations at 9pm. We were told the restaurant was not seating anymore people! Very disappointing and inconvenient after we drove 1hr to this location!

    Hardly any of the menu was available even the simple stuff like French toast and burgers. When we commented they lady explained well the food comes in on Tuesday so they run out of most things by Sunday so they have to make do. Plastic knives and forks too. Just dreadful. Shame really because the food we had was quite good at a reasonable price.

    Food was good, not great. The alcoholic beverages are very overpriced and missing/light on the alcohol that is supposed to be in the drinks. They only have craft beer available. There is nothing with this, but after several samples my group was very dissatisfied.

    Apps cost as much or more than entree. Salmon was out even though it was the highlight of 5 or 6 dishes. Settled for shrimp which was not as good. Not sure if it was the rain or condensation but the drop at our table was constant. Recently relocated from DC area, not think we will return again. Calamari and wait staff were excellent

    We were a party of 4. When we arrived we were seated and given water. The waiter told us he would return to take our order. But he never did. The restaurant was busy and he was taking care of a large group. But after putting in their orders, he still didn’t get back to us, but instead refilled their drinks, (Our table was inches from the large party). When we tried to get his attention, he ignored us. After waiting 30 minutes, we left.

    Locally owned, bonus points. Vet owned, more points. Black owned, and more. Gentrified comfort food. Something for everyone....salads, seafood, pork, burgers....great variety. We had reservations for 6:30 on Thursday night but had to wait for about 20 minutes for our table. Fortunately, we were meeting friends we hadn't seen in awhile so the time passed quickly seated at the bar. And they even had 3 interesting mocktails to offer at a reasonable $5. I had the strawberry basil spritzer- excellent. More bonus points!! Word to the wise....make reservations if showing up at prime dinner time, even on a weeknight.

    Did not end up staying. Got sat, waited 15 min and no one even came to the table to greet us. Maybe 8 other tables in the restaurant were occupied. Watched 3 tables who were sat after us get greeted and get drinks.

    The whole dining experience was nice. I had heard this restaurant was the place to eat in Jacksonville, NC! The good parts :they take reservations, although it wasn’t crowded when we went. Our waitress was pleasant, but a bit slow. The food was good. Now the not so good part: our waitress was friendly, but slow, and as she poured our drinks , she was sloppy. My daughter had tried the Mac and cheese before, and raved about it, but as soon as she was served her food, she knew something was different. The Mac and cheese was not what she had before! This dish was apparently a Cajun Mac and cheese, which was not to her liking. When our waitress returned to check on us, we asked if they changed the recipe. She said yes, but that they could make my daughter the regular Mac and cheese if she wanted. She said yes, and was brought the regular one, but as we re-checked the menu, we didn’t see cajun Mac and cheese with the dinner choice we ordered. This experience put a bit of a damper on our time there, as one could imagine. Also our waitress didn’t seem to remember that we ordered strawberry lemonade, because when she refilled our glasses, it was not with strawberry lemonade. We just left it and got some to go boxes for our unfinished portion of food. The overall experience wasn’t bad, just a few mishaps , so I would recommend Flavor Hills to others, and I would give them a second try!

    When I arrived there was no hostess and after tracking an employee down after 10+ minutes I was rudely given the excuse that the reservation system is down and that I could wait for a table if I'd like. I decided to wait as there were open tables easily visible and yet no one helped myself or any of the other customers waiting for a table. After finally getting seated after creating a minor scene I sat at my table for 30 min without being attended to by a waitress at which point I chose to leave. I had heard good things about the food and was interested in trying it, however, the service prevented it.

    We made reservations for Mother's Day. On arrival found that no online reservations had appeared on their computer. We expected them to be busy but they were also short staffed, only two waitresses....food was great, but waited almost 30 minutes for our food. Everyone was friendly and apologetic (except the person who delivered our food) for the delays. I would go there again.

    We made reservations to Flavor Hills to celebrate Mother's Day; upon arrival, we were greeted by a jam-packed restaurant campus with limited parking. However, the restaurant itself was easy to get off the road. Front of the House: There was a significant line awaiting service going out the door, and nobody was attentive to the front of the house for about 7-10 minutes. The reservation system was either down or malfunctioning, but upon providing an email receipt of our reservation, we were seated relatively quickly. The ambiance is a bit tight but intimate. Our server was warm and attentive but a bit slow due to the space's traffic. She did explain the likely time from food prep to table arrival would be about 25 minutes due to everything being made fresh. The menus are digital and accessible via a QR code. Due to the traffic and the location, however, the menu took forever to load, but there were paper copies on hand. Food: We started with the Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls as an appetizer, which were hot and well prepared (house-made dipping sauce was spicy but had no flavor). My wife and I both ordered the "From the South" plate, which was comprised of fried chicken wings, mac and cheese, and collards. The five chicken wings were the dish's star, hot, crispy, and well seasoned. The mac and cheese was hot, with some noticeable hints of paprika. The collards were also hot and seasoned but not overpowering. Altogether a decent portion size, but per the cost, and in comparison to similar entrees at different restaurants, it was a bit short in value. Altogether this was a good experience, giving grace to account for it being Mother's Day, but certainly looking forward to trying it on a less populated day.

    We have been here multiple times, everything was ALWAYS great. Mothers day was a different story. I know that it was mothers day and a very popular brunch place, so we had some reasonable consideration to the situation, but this was something like no other. I made a reservation a week prior, and when we showed up, people were out the door waiting for reservations that had not been accommodated for over 30 minutes already. We waited 2 hours for a table when we had a reservation, the host passed over us 4 times when we were "next in line" and sat 4 different people before my wife finally said "I will never come back here again" to which we were promptly seated next. When we were sat, we were told the kitchen would be backed up, so we put our order in ASAP, asked for drinks. Drinks (kids water, sprite, and 2 waters) took 30 more minutes. 1 of our 3 appetizers came out with the kids food 45 minutes after that 30 minute wait for drinks. Then 15 minutes later another appetizer made its way out. And 30 more minutes after that, NOTHING. I got up and asked the manager to cash us out. We needed to pay for what we got and leave we have been here for 4 hours and not even had more than 2 drinks and gotten a nibble to eat. We were patient, we waited but it was unacceptable. I was told to hold on a moment, our food should be right out. But our 14 month old and 3.5 year old, who were VERY good for the 4 hours, were done, and so were we. I paid for ALL the food, was sent with my food HOME in TOGO boxes, to by the time I got home and was eating, it was soggy, nasty, and found its way into the garbage. As I said, we have been here multiple times, and never had this experience. This time was insanely unacceptable. We were not offered any considerations for the wait, for walking out without food. Nothing. Paid a full bill, and will most likely never set foot back in this place. If you make a reservation, beware, it might not be honored.
