Everything was great! Two suggestions though for the Thanksgiving meal - a little dab of cranberry sauce would be nice and the sweet potato casserole needed a little sweetening up. However, overall the experience was fantastic and I certainly appreciate them being open for Thanksgiving!

It was dead on Thanksgiving when I dined in.
Food was good, Turkey was was juicy and cooked perfectly. Sides were on par as well.
I'll revisit during normal dinner service to compare.

Loved all the food, except for the calamari, it was poor quality and very rubbery.

I was slightly disappointed in both the food and service. The waiter was cordial but not attentive or very helpful. The food was mediocre. Appetizers were great, but the entrees were fair at best. The hash browns were really salty, mashed potatoes were also super salty and the shrimp and grits were bland. I was disappointed because we go out so rarely due to covid. They did take appropriate actions to maintain covid precautions and I am thankful for that. If we go back it will likely be for appetizers or simple sandwiches, not a nice meal.

First time here and I will likely return though nothing was spectacular. Service was adequate but the server definitely could have been friendlier. Patio was nice and would have been even nicer if the outdoor heaters had been turned on during what was a sunny but chilly November afternoon. Food was fine and menu had a nice variety of items. Desserts looked delicious and next time I'll make sure to leave room for either the carrot cake or coconut cake.

As always, great food and service. Their menu has a wide variety of items so its a great place to go with a group as well since they have something for everyone.

Coconut cake was great, and also love the lemon twist in their cosmopolitans.

Always have a great experience here.

We had brunch last Sunday. The hollandaise sauce on my husband's eggs benedict had split. My omlette (ham and cheese) was pretty basic. The server was pleasant and kept the coffee coming.

This is our “go to” restaurant. There’s excellent variety on the menu- something for everyone. We try something new and different nearly every visit- and have never been disappointed! Plus there’s great value and consistency as well. The staff is so nice, the hostess, bartenders and servers are all responsive and nice. They are very Covid aware with hand sanitizers for customer use and all staff wearing masks.

Sat across from a loud party. Tables were not 6 feet apart. Lobster ravioli was a half serving. Literally 6 ravioli, 4 shrimp, 4 scallops for $22. Spinach dip was disgusting—cheese was not melted in it. Server was blank and cold. He took 30 minutes to take our order. Will not be returning.

Wonderful food as always. Unfortunately we were sat across from a family birthday party of 20+ people plus kids who were very rowdy, therefore the noise level was high. BUT the staff and service was wonderful as always and the food and drinks was divine. Full menu was offered along with specials. (No limited menu due to Covid) Loved the pomegranate cosmopolitan and banana pudding for dessert. Cannot wait to return for another wonderful dinner.

We always enjoy eating here...the extensive menu doesn’t mean inconsistency of the food...every meal we have ever had here was superb: from the simplest salad or sandwich to the complexities of a perfectly done filet mignon. The prices are reasonable for the value and quality delivered. It is a great special occasion, “date night,” or lunch with the girls.
