Quaint little neighborhood spot with a flair for traditional southern food. Logan took excellent care of us and provided excellent service. Even on the patio my water was never empty, that's a sign of great customer service.

The deviled eggs were on the house because our reserved outside seating was full at the time. The bar is well stocked, and the staff is extremely helpful. Would recommend for a date night or casual dinner

Really nice outside. Very good service. The food was solid. The dessert was awesome. The persons we took asked if we could take them back. Only note I will make is that they had good and decent wine/beer etc choices, but the menu in that area is very adequate but not deep. This was fine with us, but just wanted to note this. Lots of very good cocktails.

Food was great! Service kind and friendly. Its a blessing to have a neighborhood eatery like Relish. I diet and usually eat light and clean food. I had the salmon which was perfect. Left feeling light and satisfied.

Charcuterie board and fried okra at the same place and both are excellent.
Try it!

I had dinner with friends to celebrate the end of lockdown.
The tables were safely distanced, the service attentive and helpful. The atmosphere perfect for a good talk with friends over food and wine.

I had a crisp strawberry salad to start and a totally delicious snapper puttanesca as my main course.

It was a real pleasure to be back.

Relish is good for lunch, but I expected more for dinner. We ordered a bottle of wine, but the waiter didn't know that they didn't have any more. We ordered a different bottle, but he should have known more. Also, when I cut into one of my pieces of fried chicken, it was bloody uncooked. He took it back and brought me another piece. The knowledge and service was like that of an upscale diner. The are trying, but have a way to go.
I did like the menu, however, and will return.
