                                                              Very crowded and drink service slow. Been many times but this was the first time I've found it disappointing. Porkchop was under seasoned, under-cooked and tough. Brussel sprouts greasy and over cooked., could not eat them, sweet potatoes tasted mass produced. Quail was tiny should have been deboned. Eggplant ravioli was good. Redfish was good. but not spectacular. Deviled eggs and salad delicious. Hot cheese appetizer good. I think they crowd so many people inside, outside and at the bar that the food has suffered. They need to get back to being a fine dining experience. I'm disappointed it was not a great meal

                                                              Being a Restaurant General Manager myself, I tend to see things differently than maybe your average guest might. The service was good and I commented to my wife on the way home that we were there for just over an hour which in an upscale restaurant such as yours I thought was a bit "hurried". Certainly nothing wrong with turning the tables quickly just that I was a little surprised. With the abundance of Team members that were working during our meal, I thought they might be a bit more attentive as they continually walked past our table to help pre-bus or fill water glasses etc. rather than wait on the tables dedicated server. Nothing wrong with that, just an observation. Lastly, with what appeared to be at least 3 managers in the FOH, I was again a bit surprised that none of them "poked" their head in to say hello. For me. that is always a nice touch for the diner(s). Overall my wife and I had a great meal and enjoyed our time out, which we don't get much of these days. Thank you for an evening we were able to relax and enjoy some really good food. THANKS!

When we entered we were greeted by every staff member we passed. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. I loved the extensive list of bourbons and whiskeys. I had an outstanding bourbon flight. My shrimp and grits was clearly one of the best meals I've had out in years. I highly recommend this restaurant.
