Have been coming here before it became popular. Jody, former waitress, was great (loud, but great).

Went on Saturday - place was busy. Appeared to be understaffed. Food took a good 45 mins to arrive. Thankfully, the food is always good but wasn’t happy about the overall experience.

Was looking for lunch spot halfway between my friends location and mine. Saw this on open table and decided to try it. So glad we did. The food was excellent and so was the service. Will be definitively going back.

We've eaten at Ten a number of times and never had a bad experience. On this particular night, we arrived about 10 minutes before our 7:00 p.m. reservation and it was packed. Although I had a confirmation from open table in my inbox, Ten did not have our reservation. Despite the crowd and the confusion, they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of while we waited for a table to open up. Great service!

Decent experience. The staff was nice and the ambience is not bad considering the location. Food was ok, we had the chicken and enjoyed it, the fish was disappointing. The choices on spirits is very limited considering the name As we were expecting a wide selection of top shelf stuff. The rating is a bit inflated on open table and yelp, it reminded me of a decent hotel restaurant.

Had been meaning to try this restaurant for a while now and was not disappointed. A friend's birthday gave us the occasion book a table and will say that everyone was impressed with the food--from shrimp/grit cakes and fish taco starters to the pot roast to the steak to the sandwiches, all my friends made conversation about how good things tasted. Service was top notch as well--very attentive and friendly. Great ambiance. Will definitely return.

The fish of the day was sea bass and cooked just right, that it was a melt in the mouth experience, the green beans and corn were seasoned just right to complement the fish!

Quaint setting with outstanding food, drinks, and service. Bartender/owner was personable (we sat at the bar) and gave us exceptional service and made us feel welcome. inside of the restaurant is pretty and dimly lit which made for great ambiance for a date. Highly recommend the fried tomatoes and the shrimp pasta special!

The food was fabulous. We had the shrimp and grit cake. It was a real taste treat. For our main course we had the fried chicken and pork shoulder and they were both outstanding. The PB & J Ala Mode that we had for dessert was one of the best desserts we've EVER had! Carmella was our server and she could not have been nicer. All of her recommendations were spot on.

Ten Handcrafted is consistently a fun place to dine. If you want comfort food, the pot roast and pork shoulder are about as good as it gets anywhere. Great service, friendly atmosphere and a great bar/happy hour. Would recommend it to anyone.

The server recommended a great Cabernet, so I got a glass while eating for the rest of my party. When they got there, they wanted same wine, she talked us into a bottle. She opened it, poured theirs, and added to mine. She brought the wrong wine, she poured Malbec into my glass of Cabernet. She comped the hush puppies. Other than that faux pas, everything was great. We ordered the pot roast, Chilean sea bass, salad. Because 2 of us were splitting two meals, she split them for us, which was perfect.

Awesome drinks - maybe the best Old Fashioned in town! Though, they do have strong competition in that area right next door at Dieci (yes... Italian for Ten... same ownership).

The food is both upscale and simple at the same time - and prices are very reasonable.

Love this little place and highly recommend.

My husband and I had a great dining experience. Our server was attentive but not over bearing. I had the mojito and my husband had the old fashioned to drink. Both were very well crafted. For dinner, our food came out nice and hot. My husband had the fish which was the sea bass that day. We was impressed by the crispiness of the skin on the fish and was even more impressed by the preparation of the vegetables served with it. I had a Cuban sandwich with sweet potato fries. I thought both items were impressive versions of classic items.
