    We have eaten at the location on several occasions and last night was no different than those of the past. We had family in town, and they were overwhelmed with the ambience, service and the food. My wife and I will return again and again. Thank you for making a family dinner night out great!

    First visit, definitely will go again. It was a busy night and the noise level was really high. The food was very good; the only reason for four stars instead of five was that the she crab soup was not a traditional recipe with sherry & cream as we expected. The fillet with pimento cheese and the maui-maui with crab meat were both excellent.

    Our party of 6 enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Sassafras! All of the staff we interacted with were very friendly and our server, Taylor, was excellent. My husband and I chose the Sassafras Chicken entree and it was delicious! We also had the peanut butter pie for dessert, which was fantastic! I highly recommend Sassafras and look forward to dining there again!

    We enjoyed a delicious meal at Sassafras! The service was excellent with perfect timing from my wine to our soup to meal and dessert. We were never rushed nor had to wait! We were there a little early for our reservation but were seated promptly. It did become filled up but not too crowded or noisy. We would definitely recommend a nice evening out dining here.

    Ordered Ribeye. Was not a ribeye. Maybe a London Broil but definitely not a ribeye. No fat at all. Asked for Rare. Was more like Medium. Salad was good. Sides were good but the steak issue is a problem. If you don’t have it, just tell me. Otherwise, don’t try to pass it off as something else.

    A great venue to enjoy before our Peace Center show. Our table facing the window was perfect w/a great view of downtown. Drinks were a fair price, but dessert was pricey considering the small portion.

    The service was outstanding. I don’t think the sheet crab soup is named appropriately because it is not traditional and those who know real she crab soup will be disappointed given the name. Our table was really close to the kitchen so a little bit noisy and busy but it was OK.
