    My wife and I shared lunch at this downtown restaurant and had a wonderful experience. Upon entering, one is immediately struck by the charm or timbers and bricks with the contrast of modern art oils adorning the brick walls. Ever visible inch was immaculately clean and the staff was very friendly. We had the Mussels and Sourdough for our appetizers. The mussels were plump and juicy with a delicious cream sauce. For Entrees I had the Bob’s Burger and my wife had the Waldorf Chicken Salad on croissant and we shared a side of the Sautéed Garlic Spinach. The burger and chicken salad were excellent, the Sautéed Garlic Spinach were beyond excellent. The only disappointment were the fries that were barely warm when they were served, but this was not enough to outweigh the perfection of the rest of our meal. We will be back for dinner, sans fries.

    Small plate is ideal for my wife and was an excellent value and quality of taste and food was excellent. I had one of the Chef’s Dish of the Evening specials. Which was excellent. The garlic potatoes were well seasoned and the hint of garlic made them a cut above the normal. Braised cinnamon apples were freshly cut and pan seared to seal the cinnamon infused syrup, the perfect topping for the medium (-) bone in pork steak. Finishing was a side of collard greens sugar and vinegar tasting a bit like a sweet and sour. Third time dining here believe this topped the list.

    We made a reservation for NYE dinner. It’s inside of the stunning Bleckley Inn. We were greeted and seated upon arrival. Beautiful rustic, yet intimate atmosphere. We were blown away with how amazing the food and service was. So incredible! Definitely one of the best dining experiences in the Upstate!

    We were looking for an outstanding dining experience for just the two of us to celebrate Christmas Eve, and we were not disappointed! We've always enjoyed the ambiance of this particular venue; but last night it was the food that was the real hit. Specials for the night included Lobster Tempura which was reasonably priced, so we went for it...and we're glad we did. Not normally fans of most 'fried' foods, we were pleasantly surprised by the "lightness" of the breading and the ample size of the lobster itself. The presentation alone was worth the price of admission. Our OpenTable reservation was 100% respected in terms of time, our preferred table and we were immediately seated upon arrival. (That's always a great way to begin a dining experience.) Special thanks to our server, Virginia, assisted by Ashley, the manager. And since we didn't get a chance to thank him personally, all we can say is "Bien joué, Chef!"

    This chef “is one of ours” , an Anderson local , who presents creative, unique and absolutely delicious dishes. The restaurant could use some additional decorative input to add warmth to the fairly stark warehouse setting but that’s is our only suggestion. The food and wait staff makes this our favorite Anderson restaurant!

    Crab cake with curry sauce was delicious, salad special w/sweet potatoes, arugula, cranberries,cheese and walnuts was very good. Entrees: halibut special was best halibut ever, perfectly cooked and scallops were very good, too. The sauces created by the chef are divine and make for beautiful plate presentation.

    Simply the best in Anderson. This was brunch and omelets were on the menu for us. Light, fluffy, fresh eggs. Homemade preserves for our toast. They have mimosas which were so good with brunch. Five server’s kept the ball rolling. They do a great eggs Benedict with outstanding hollandaise. They have excellent French fries.

    Love this place for lunch or dinner. We recently took a friend there for lunch and had some wonderful dishes. Chef Richard's pimento cheese is the best I've ever had and when he tops a burger with it, it is amazing! The spaghetti squash salad is delectable and the chicken salad is perfection on a croissant. While we didn't "need" desserts, we had to have them and they were as terrific as everything else. I recommend this restaurant highly!

    Looking for a new place to eat in Anderson for a special occasion? Restaurant 151 is the place. A small menu but many different flavors so do not let that fool you. The parking is easy and the quiet atmosphere makes you feel like you are the only one there. Our server was attentive but so much that we felt rushed.
