    Amazing experience. The staff were friendly and welcoming, we were met with smiles. Our waitress was fabulous. The food was awesome. We took dessert to go and they made sure we have utensils as we were at a hotel. The pricing was very reasonable. We definitely would go back.

    Pet friendly when such seating is available, and it was. The staff was very accommodating with our dog ...who was pretty relaxed, so that helped. The rack of lamb ordered was cooked to perfection, and it's relative easy to not cook it well. The sides were even great. The roasted Brussel sprouts were a treat in themselves, as was the risotto. The wait staff was attentive and professional without being one bit overly intrusive. The menu was quite varied and inventive. I'm definitely looking forward to going again when I'm in town.

    Our food was good and the presentation was very nice. I had the spicy salmon and my husband had the shrimp and grits. It wasn’t his favorite version of shrimp and grits but it was pretty tasty. We also had a crab dip appetizer which was pretty standard, but good. Our waitress gave us just the right amount of attention. It was pretty sitting outside as the sun went down and with the outside lights, BUT the mosquitoes were really bad, so I wouldn’t do that again!

    Food was good, staff was accommodating, restaurant barely 1/4 full and they were “on a 3 hour wait”. We had reservations but wanted to sit outside, stead we sat inside and looked at many empty outdoor tables that never filled up.

    This place was amazing! Best fine dining experience my boyfriend and I have had. The prices are excellent for the food and outs very filling and reheating the food didn’t change how good it was. We recommend the lamb rack and the snack of rare tuna. Seriously this place is a must stop for everyone to try.

    We ate here twice on our vacation. The first night we got dinner. It was super nice to sit on the patio and watch the sun set on the river while we enjoyed a delicious meal. The last day of our trip we went back for brunch since we enjoyed dinner so much. Both were great experiences and the food was fantastic (salmon, clam chowder, kale ceased, bass, crab dip and crème brûlée)

    Our waitress was rude to start with. She refilled my husband’s drink when his was halfway gone; she filled mine when it was almost empty and the coke was a light brown color from being watered down. I ordered my steak medium well and the waitress kept asking me if I knew that there would be a little pink in my steak. That, to me, was like her insinuating I’d never eaten steak before. Then when I got it, after the first bite, blood began pouring onto the plate. It was literally sitting on top of the steak sauce. I just asked for a to go box and told her I would take it home and finish cooking it myself. She said that was fine, like I had asked her if that was alright to do. We won’t be going back.
