    Staff was great Food was well cooked if not really creative. Ambiance was pretty much like a bar which I guess is what they are going for.

    Lovely waitstaff--everyone was friendly and helpful though a little inexperienced. We enjoyed sitting outside, although flies were an issue. Fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese were excellent! Steak & pasta were fine. Chocolate cake, meh. If you drive to Locust from Charlotte via Albemarle Rd, it's a pretty & relaxing drive through the country.

    Ordered from the Queens Fest menu only to find out that they had taken all the sides off the entrée. So we ordered sides and then our waitress forgot to bring them. Chocolate cake was cold and dry. It is disappointing to spend $100 and not feel like you got a great meal.

    We were there for Restaurant Week and truly enjoyed our dinner experience. The food quality was outstanding and the service excellent. Kudos to our server Peyton who helped make this a memorable experience. Management should commend her for the fine job she is doing. It was nice to meet one of the owners Jimmy who was walking around talking to guests at tables. Food quality was excellent on the Restaurant Week items. Loved the fried green tomatoes, my wife loved her cajun shrimp and my steak was cooked to perfection. The chocolate layer cake was delicious. It was nice to include a glass of wine with the Restaurant week specials making this a really good value. Good food - service excellence

    It was our first time there. We love visiting new places. The food was pleasing to the eye and filling (big portions). Our waitress, Alexis, was very attentive, never let our water glasses get empty and checked on us often. It was early evening so the place was not nice and quiet before the busy dinner crowd which was nice because we were able to talk to each other without easing our voices. Yes, I’d recommend this restaurant and have already. Can’t wait to go back.

    Got shrimp and grits. Shrimp was rubbery like it had been cooked yesterday. Grits were one blob. Not moist at all but all did have a good flavor. Cheese on loaded fries was a blob on top layer of fries so none under top had any toppings. Service however was great

    Enjoy the food but really would like to see a variety in appetizers. The wings were great as were the garlic pretzels. Most of your appetizers are sea food and not all of us eat seafood. Otherwise enjoyed the meal

    Really great service. Wings were great but would prefer a buffalo hot sauce base option. Great choice for an appetizer. Still seeking a variety of appetizers - pretzels are good when you have them as an option Really wish salt and pepper were a staple on the tables. We have been there enough that we know to request the condiments but still, they are forgotten until we ask a second time. I truly wish rolls were provided when a meal is ordered. The food presentation is superb but truly feel a roll would compliment the food. Thank you. Great place for us to frequent.

    The service was great- our waitress was very attentive and took care of our requests. We did experience a problem with mixing up the order for our burgers… one burger was requested medium and another well done and without a couple of add ins… and the two were mixed up so the person with the medium burger got the well done burger without some dressings and the person who ordered well done got a medium burger with everything on it. We sent it back and another came out- with essentially the same issues. We did. It send it back again- just decomposed the burger and ate around it. I would return for sure because the food was great and the service too. I would hope that the mix up only occurs occasionally!

    My family normally loves the local room but our experience for mothers day was awful. It felt like we were inconveniencing the waitress by being there, we got our drinks in Styrofoam cups, the food was mediocre. If we hadn't gone to the local room multiple times before & had a wonderful experience, we wouldn't go back.

    Overall, pretty good. I had the salmon with a loaded baked potato and caesar salad. Excellent. My wife gad the tomato soup and she said it was good. Carrot cake was good...very large! Our waitress was ok. Felt like she just didn't want to be there tonight. Been here a few times now, and it's a good place.

    Great find a little further out for some. Great food. Fried green tomatoes were a different twist, but man were they good. And the sweet potato cheesecake? Yes, you read correctly. PHENOMENAL. Nice aesthetics and very attentive service rounded out a really nice experience. Keep it up!!

    The service was great. The food was good but cold...not warm at all. All 3 of ours was cold! Didn't complain as I didn't want it microwaved. Not worth the amount we were charged. Will try another time. Note...it wasn't busy yet and we got our food fast so don't know why it was cold. Disappointed

    Wow! What a gem this place is. The food and service was great! The only thing I didn’t enjoy was being seated so close to the kitchen… the sound of clashing dishes and purple lighting from kitchen changed the ambiance a bit but other than that, loved our first visit there!
