Right from the moment we walked in the door we were greeted and taken right to a beautiful table. Set with dark tablecloths and an adorable candle in a ball jar within a lantern. Our waiter “Steven” was amazing. Very attentive and completely spot on with all his suggestions. From the wine to to the fried green tomatoes to the entrees and deasert. We could not have asked for a better evening. Even the solo guitarist playing in the background was perfect. He added to the ambiance and atmosphere. Well done

Always a unique and delicious meal when dining at Table 20. Love the changing menu for the seasons. Enjoyed our starter of Daikon Radish and Potato Latkes with Apple butter. The Loin Chop of Lamb is an excellent choice off their spring menu and the Bay of Fundy Salmon is always a favorite. Don’t leave without trying their Olive Oil Cake. Great service made our night even better. Can’t wait for a return visit.

About the restaurant
A Prime Steakhouse of the highest caliber that transports you into another world, where time stands still, and memories are made.

Community is more than a restaurant, it’s a destination you seek out for the ultimate dining experience. From the Maître D’ that greets you at the door, to the smoked cocktails at the bar, and the world class steaks you enjoy with a bottle of your favorite wine, everything is done with style and impeccable service, in a relaxing prohibition atmosphere.

For large parties of 14 or more, please contact Susan Wagner at wagner.susanp@gmail.com

Largos brings all the fresh tastes of wine country cuisine into a unique culinary experience for the Cartersville community to enjoy. The desire to share our favorite finds with friends and family led us to open Largos, where thought and care go into every item we serve.

I have been a patron at Largos since they opened years ago. I know that things have changed throughout the years. But last night was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had there. Every aspect of our dining experience was perfect! We sat at the bar and Juliet took exquisite care of us. She’s lovely and hospitable. The food was delicious! We had the mushrooms and Brussels to start, then Scallops and Filet for our entrees. Bread pudding for dessert. Prepared perfectly and so inspired. Love the new chef! The manager is doing an amazing job! You can tell she really cares about her guests and the overall experience. The vibe is so warm and inviting, yet chic and cool. I almost didn’t write this review, because I want to make sure I always have a spot at the bar, lol

About the restaurant
Great barbecue and chef pride go hand-in-hand. And we have both. Our southern-inspired menu has the classic recipes that you crave, and the perfect twist on traditional dishes that are sure to satisfy. Taste our Bourbon Glazed Salmon and Bacon Wrapped Smoked Meatloaf. Or check out our signature Louisiana dishes including Jambalaya or Shrimp and Grits. Our meats are smoked in our Ole Hickory Pit Smoker and everything in between is made in our scratch kitchen. Our rubs and sauces are all our own recipe. Incredible smoked meats and great bourbons are what we're made of.

The only issue was that the chicken tenders came out raw. The management did replace them and took them off the bill. But our waiter's tables were spread out and it was hard to get his attention when we needed things. Other than that, everything was great and we will be back.
