    220 Cafe is a wonderful restaurant! The servers are great and the food is delicious. Kelli (the owner) is friendly and always makes her customers feel welcome! Chef John is amazing! A regular 'date night' and place to go for lunch too! Highly recommend. Great local restaurant in downtown Statesville that everyone should experience.

    We really could not have had a better dining experience. The food was varied and what we ordered, pork chop with blue cheese slaw and stuffed chicken and risotto, delicious. The live background music stayed in the background and was a real positive.

    This was our first time dining at the 220 Café in Statesville, it was absolutely amazing!! The food was fabulous, the restaurant was very cozy, loved the gluten-free menu and the music added to our experience. We were a party of 12 people and our waitress Was fabulous! What a treasure right here in Statesville, we will be back!! Loved meeting John and Kelly, the owners.

    A midweek lunch engagement for four went pretty well it took a bit longer than normal for a salad to arrive, and the noise level was pretty high. The restaurant was only half full, so I’m not sure why everybody need to be seated together in one corner. Overall a good experience, and will likely go back.

    Such a disappointment. First time for the 6 of us. We were seated at 6:00 pm and didn't get served until 8:00 pm with no explanation or concern. The eclectic menu is interesting, but my pork chop with a chutney based sauce was hard to cut even with a steak knife. Crab cakes were good. You get one side with the entree but they delivered all the sides first so by the time the entrees came, it was a stand alone dish (and not that flavorful). The 12 year old ordered Buffalo Shrimp and liked them. Unfortunately, his French fries did not arrive until after ALL of us were almost finished eating. It did not appear that they were short of staff but, if they were, they should have explained that to us and we would have ordered appetizers. Reservations through Open Table allows you to put special event. It was a birthday. I requested a dessert w candle. They never even offered a dessert (maybe that is an Open Table issue?)

    This restaurant in downtown Statesville is awesome. The food, the service and the value are consistently great. I have been a huge fan of 220 Cafe from the first visit there 2 years ago when I moved to NC. If you have never been here before or it's been awhile you need to do yourself a favor and go.

    It was a cute place. We ordered several things but nothing was absolutely amazing. It looks dressier and nicer online. Our waitress never asked how I food was one time. I really wanted to send my steak back, ordered it medium rare and it came out medium and very chewy! I would go back for drinks or apps with friends just not a full meal.
