it is a great restaurant in the summer when it is busy but was almost empty, cold and quiet for us. Also my food was cold by the time it was served. I realize that a 7 person group takes time but a cold steak is a cold steak.
Food was very good with the wild game bolognese the highlight. Service was abrupt and stilted and not well coordinated as drinks came out after appetizers. Live jazz helped to overcome dated interior design desperately in need of a refresh.
Perhaps understaffed but service was only fair and slow. Food over priced. Not good value.
New Years Eve
We arrived 11 minutes late for our 630pm reservation. The host informed us that we had “1 hour and 49 minutes” before he needed to turn the table. It set a very negative tone for our dinner! Give me a break! There are much more professional ways to handle this situation of a guest being a few minutes late!
I have eaten at the Granary before and always enjoyed the Restaurant. The atmosphere is great, the food is really good, and the service is always good. The only negative that I could mention on this last occasion is that when the host called prior to our dinner to confirm our reservation, he stated , after I reconfirmed, that they were really busy and they would give our table away if we were 5 minutes late. I believe that that is the first time I have been threatened in that way by a restaurant, and if that occurs often , it is likely that the "really busy "problem could rectify itself.
Dined at The Granary for breakfast and dinner several times during our stay at SCR in Jackson - good fresh food, good menu choices, great service.
Our service was terrible. We were unfortunately seated near the kitchen..it was like a racetrack, so many comings and goings and a couple of mishaps. I asked our waiter for a water refill 4 times; another waiter came by and took care of us. We arrived at 7:00, our reservation time. About 15 minutes later, my phone rang. It was the restaurant leaving a message that we were 15 minutes late and were losing our reservation...we were already seated. Very hectic and disorganized.. only saving grace..the food was very good.
Excellent dining experience! Elk tenderloin and spareribs were wonderful. Taste explosion:)
