About

It doesn't take an explorer to seek out the aptly named Safari Room amid the exotic zebra-print furniture and carved elephant busts of the Davenport Tower lobby. The frequent hum of activity, the sparkle of laughter and conversation — not to mention the incredibly affordable lunch and dinner specials — seem to draw scores of guests almost instinctively.

Since opening in 2007, this truly stylish restaurant has had the quiet distinction of becoming a kind of pet project to owner Walt Worthy. It is a place where he has been able to introduce all the classic Southern fare from his youth in Georgia: dishes like homestyle grits, savory smoked barbecue, indulgent fried okra, and flatbreads fired in a special oven then sprinkled with tantalizing toppings. Yet the menu is broad enough to satisfy all cravings, no matter whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Food was good as usual. Our server was attentive and friendly. Downside to Safari Grill is it's incredibly loud, but upside it's convenient for a bite to eat or a drink.

We had a Christmas dinner reservation for three. Had to wait to be seated. Our server was competent and pleasant, but the food took over an hour to arrive and was just so-so--husband's filet was supposed to be rare, but it came out medium, fries were stone cold, and the bread pudding was dry and flavorless. Seemed severely understaffed for such a busy holiday dinner service. Left there feeling sad and disappointed.

This restaurant has a lot of character. The service is excellent. The menu is "modernized" comfort food; many dishes with a Southern flair. I could have made a meal out of just the seafood chowder. My wife had the fried chicken and I had the lobster stuffed ravioli. Both were delicious. The desserts are also fun. Each one is served in a large shot glass. There is a number to choose from and they are just right after a hearty meal.

The service was outstanding. We had a large party, and our server anticipated needs. The lunch specials were reasonably priced. However, I found my meal was not very flavorful, rather bland in fact. Oh, well, the service made up for it.
