We went for dinner on Valentine's Day with our son, daughter-in-law and 2-year-old grandson. It was not crowded for our early seating, and the waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. The food was good but not great, but it was a very nice evening for our family group.

Other than waiting for 30 min past reservation time it was ok, food took a while to come out, pretty noisy but it was after all a bar.

Visited in February. Still had Christmas decorations up. Staff was friendly. Food was pretty good. I expected more. It wasn't awful but wasn't great.

Crab stuffed flounder was absolutely delicious (slightly over seasoned in spots but tolerable). Service was top notch!! Can’t wait to go back!!

Went there for restaurant week because of the menu. Very impressive. Probably better than Ruth’s Chris. My wife and I had the firecracker shrimp for the appetizer, the ribs and steak entree and of course, the cheesecake for desert. I have commented favorably to several friends of mine.

Restaurant week menu was nicely set. Fried green tomatoes were very good, but accompanying sauce tasted too much like slightly seasoned mayo. KC sauce on ribs overpowered the pork which had little other seasoning. Both gave well-prepared food a corporate taste. 8oz strip was pretty good. I was happily surprised to find sausage in the rice but others might not appreciate the same surprise. The maple bacon cheesecake jar was excellent. Service was polite and efficient but rather inflexible with respect to requests, and smacked of corporate margin-watching over customer service. They will not bring bread before you order your meal, even if waiting for members of your party who are delayed. Another diner in my party commented that the flounder was ok, but nothing to write home about. Overall, it was a good dining experience, but with so many restaurants in Savannah that execute similar meals at a higher level, a diner could do better elsewhere.

We decided to try a new place for restaurant week. The service was fine. Dessert was good, appetizers OK. My husband's ribs and NY strip were good. My stuffer flounder was so spicy with pepper, it was almost inedible. Not interested in returning

Not worth the money. There are too many other great places to eat in Savannah to ever go here again.

Service was awful, it took 2.5 hours to eat for four people and we all got the specials and once we did get our food it was dry and seemed to have just been reheated.

Don’t waste a meal here.

Restaurant week!! It was busy and out waitress seemed like she was chasin around with a ton to do, but was super friendly and helpful.
A patron across from us was a “complainer”, loud talker and used filthy language-and the servers, wait staff, and a manager went over and above to try to appease him
