    We had a great small group dinner at The American Reserve. The food was great, the servers were outstanding, and the decor is lovely. Highly recommend. Loved the live jazz, too. We will be back.

    Our experience was wonderful! Our wait staff, food and drinks were simply delicious!! My friend and I chose: Shrimp & grits and Chicken n Waffles. Both plated presentation done with classic. Shrimp n grits ingredients were not your typical with tomatoes, spinach and sweet chili butter.. all adding sweet mix of flavors with the entire dish. Chicken was cooked perfectly.. lightly crisp that melts in you mouth.. juicy and flavorful!
