We had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. They saved a table for us right at the front window, and we really appreciated that thoughtful consideration!

Service was a bit slow but the food was excellent.
Great place for live music BUT way to loud!!! It’s unfortunate that at our Valentines dinner we had to practically yell at one another to have a conversation. Talented young lady but way WAY to load for the venue.

The service and food were excellent. The noise level was a little off-putting. Everyone was friendly and the decor was interesting in a nice way.

We stopped at the Statesville exit on our way home to Cleveland from Florida. On a friends recommendation we were told to check out the 220 Cafe'. We loved it!
We plan on making that our 'go-to' stop whenever we're traveling!

Our server was excellent...she suggested the pork chop...my husband, (who travels all over the country for work), said it was the BEST he'd ever had!

Thank you for making a 'Crazy Long' drive a great experience!

Charming casual dining. Steak was a little tough, pork chop a little dry but otherwise a good experience. Would definitely go again.

We went for restaurant week & it was just okay.
We were expecting for a $100+ meal that it’d be better than just okay.
It wasn’t a “WOW” restaurant it was a just simply mediocre.

We had delicious food -- ka-pow shrimp and crab cakes were the highlights! Prices were reasonable. Atmosphere was very cool. Service was excellent. We were there on a live music evening, which made it a bit louder than we would have preferred. The music was good, just made conversation challenging in such a small space. Cool, funky place for a night out.

Our first visit with friends during Queen’s Feast Week January 2020 was wonderful! Everyone’s meal was very good! The plating presentation for all courses was beautiful! Will definitely go back.

We had a fantastic time here on a recent Saturday night. The service was great. Each person in our group enjoyed the food they ordered from the Queen's Feast menu. Parents, teens and one grandparent. The ambiance was festive and funky. The live music was a nice touch. A fantastic night. Can't wait to go back.

They actually reduced the price on queen’s feast because we did not order any beverages

Great food. Wait staff is attentive but not hovering.
Nice place for casual fine dining or a special occasion.
I had shrimp and grits. Very yummy.
My husband had rib eye steak and asparagus. He said his food was very good.
We shared a Cesar salad and took dessert home.

Been a customer of the 220 Cafe for 5 years. The only complaint I have ever had and they still haven’t corrected is that they do not serve regular caffeinated coffee. They have decaf and they have flavored caffeinated. If they had regular coffee I would always buy dessert after dinner instead of going somewhere else to get it.

This was are first time to the restaurant. it is a charming modern dinning experience. the service was very good, the menu selection was nice. tow of the parties had the seafood pasta dish, each choosing a different sauce and they enjoyed it. I had a salmon dish and it was small and disappointing. it was very small for a $22.00 plate and was over cooked or blackened and lacked flavor. The appetizers or small dishes as they refer to them were good. Brussel sprouts were great per the eater and so was the seared fresh Tuna. I would go back again but would not recommend the salmon.

We went out for Mother’s Day. We were a large party of 9. The staff wasn’t very welcoming. I don’t know if this was bc they were busy or what. The food was pretty good but our daughter ordered blueberry pancakes with bacon for $11. She received 1 pancake and 2 slices of bacon. The pancake was small and crunchy. That was the only disappointment.
We will be back, but maybe with less people this time. We’ve eaten here before, several times and the food is always delicious and the service is great.

Waitress was very rude and acted annoyed when I told her I asked for a salad as my side instead of fries. She about hit me with the plate picking it up, didn’t say a word and slammed my plate back down when she returned. Food was good.
