    You will never have a poor meal or service at Fort 88. The food is excellent and, when the menu changes, you are offered even more great options. The staff are friendly and attentive. Kelsey and Charley provide a great dining experience. Every. Time.

    While the food was good and the service fine, the persistent and annoying flies buzzing around our table was off-putting. I would guess we would have had fewer pests if we sitting outside on the patio. We brought our friends to this place as someplace to sit quietly and chat but we had to leave as soon as our dining was over to avoid the flies. Very disappointed.

    The pasta was one of the best my wife’s had locally in a long time, I had the rib special and it was so tender and delicious. Top tier restaurant, and the downtown open air feel creates a one of a kind ambiance

    Incredibly special restaurant. Food was perfect and all made from scratch. We got the burger and the shrimp and grits, and the burratta and a crudité/ bacon board for appetizers. Fresh and perfectly prepared, huge endorsements for everything. Waitress was wonderful with recommendations and attending to us. The owner was so welcoming and came around and chatted with us. This is a place you can make a routine to come to every week, multiple times a week, and never get tired of the food, drinks or ambiance. Both inside and outside seating is so comfortable and fun!

    This restaurant is a gem! The atmosphere is lively, clean, and modern. The food is top notch. Chef puts together dishes that are absolutely outstanding and uses fresh and local foods when available. Each handcrafted cocktail is made just right. If I had only one word to describe Fort Eighty Eight, it would be flavor. The bo us is that the atmosphere and friendly staff make Fort Eighty Eight one of the best around. You won't regret giving them a try! I did, and return regularly.

    Everything would have been perfect if our waitress would have waited to put in our order for the food. We ordered drinks before the meal and the food came before we were finished with the drinks. This was our second time going to the restaurant and we would highly recommend it.

    Appears to be a very new restaurant. Very quickly served and very pleasant staff. Bar was somewhat limited for mixed drinks. Food was tasty and good with a limited menu found online. Our waitstaff appeared to be the owner who was trying to do multiple things at once which left us waiting for drink refills after acknowledging she would bring more. She took photos for two tables and chatted with another and forgot us for a short while. She could have delegated more to her staff to help her. 😁
