Lunch after golf
We had to move from our first seated table because the table wobbled. The waitress got my husband's order wrong. He ordered a bowl of soup and got a cup. The waitress also undercharged us, but overcharged the couple we were with.
Stopped in as it was available for lunch on OpenTable. What a great find! Service was great and the southern food was fabulous. Will be going back to enjoy the "feel of home!"
Thoroughly enjoyed Rhett's and the friendly waiter who recommended specialty options. I tried the divine Red Pepper soup and the full size summer salad topped with a Vidalia Onion dressing that included greens and veggies from local gardeners. I appreciate that the vinaigrette came on the side so I could add as little or as much as I wanted. I could've done without the tortilla crisp that was served on the side of the soup as well as the salad. There's a lovely Broad Street Bakery & Cafe nearby that has freshly baked breads that would've complemented the dishes better. My partner who eats organic foods remarked about the noise level from some children at another table, but I never noticed them. He opted to eat an ample burger with fries and a side salad that looked as fresh as it tasted. Will definitely go back to Rhett's in the future.
Terrific location for a special occasion or just a great meal. The food selections are good and lots of local sourcing. Great service.
Food and ambiance was incredible and the chef came around each table several times. It was just perfect!
Everyone at the table had a great meal. The food was delicious and it was a nice quiet evening.
My aunt, uncle, and cousin were in Cary for a graduation. They drove down, and my parents drove up from Columbia for lunch. Rhett graciously met us at the door and handed us off to Sofia who took good care of us. Everyone was incredibly patient with the walker, cane, celiacs, vegetarians, hearing loss, and dementia our party brought to the table, and the food was superb. We had a room to ourselves which helped those with hearing issues. Just a great place with excellent people. Thank you all!
Really surprising gem tucked off Pennsylvania !!! Food was delish and oh so southern. Staff was friendly and helpful!
Locally sourced great food. Fantastic service and original creations in a quaint courtyard setting. Even got to meet Rhett!
Had high hopes for this restaurant. The restaurant seating was outside and the day couldn't have been more perfect. That said, the restaurant wasn't that busy as it was a holiday and everything was by reservation only. The service was extremely slow. Extended periods between courses. The whole experience took 2 hours for a set menu. We also brought our son to brunch and he's not quite 3. It was hard for us to sit there that long let alone expect a toddler to. Food was mediocre. Overall poor experience. The best part about the meal (except for finally getting the check) was the acoustic guitar player. He was great!
They were out of a lot on the menu and we got there pretty early for dinner. Food was good but not amazing. Would have tried dessert but they were out of what both of us wanted. Prices are extremely reasonable and portion size was fair.
Absolutely superb in every respect. Rhett is a fantastic host, and a fantastic chef. Servers were attentive; food was fresh, creative, and well prepared.
Great Southern charm. We dined outdoors on a beautiful evening. Chicken & waffles were good, pork sandwich was perhaps a little too smoky but good, loved the mac & cheese (who doesn't?). Great meal in a fun atmosphere.
I went to Rhett's on a Friday night with a couple of friends. The ambiance was very nice. We ate outdoors and enjoyed the sunset and quaint surroundings. The menu was varied with interesting offerings. And you could order 1/2 portions at reduced rates which I really appreciated. The food was thoughtfully prepared and presented, however, it was a bit bland for my taste. I got the shrimp & grits. My friends got the fish and felt the same about their meals. I wish I'd brought some seasoning with me. But I'll definitely go back to try some other options before bailing on this place because it's a charming environment in an ideal location. And the people were very nice.
This really is the best restaurant in the area. Rhett uses local ingredients. He has the best of "southern" options on the menu. The new menu has most options in large or small plates. Save room for the banana pudding.
Two of us had the trout and it was perfection. The food was delicious.
Rhett's offers a new twist on some old Southern favorites. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Nothing particularly extraordinary- just good food at a good price. Indoor dining has little to offer in the way of ambience which is why I scored ambience low; however, the outside dining courtyard is very lively. Save this place for when the weather calls for dining outside.
Went for New Year's Eve dinner - prix fixe menu with multiple choices for first, second, main, and dessert. EVERYTHING was thoughtfully prepared, flavorful, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Because everything was chosen in advance and choices emailed in, the meal moved in a little faster than I would typically want for a multi course experience. But nothing arrived before we finished the prior course, and at no time did they seem to be pushing us; just all the servers moved about quickly and courses followed closely one upon the other.
Still, I'll take that over long waits, messed up orders, running out of key dishes, and all the other snafus we've experienced over the years at a variety of restaurants in a plethora of states.
Thanks, Rhett, for a memorable meal and a great start to 2017!
Perfectly prepared food and full of flavor, atmosphere is wonderful and allows for good conversation. Top notch service with table visits by the chef (Rhett). Dining can be casual or more formal if you like, definitely a place for people who appreciate well prepared and presented cuisine. We will return!
