Went for dinner with coworkers. I did not think it was that busy but orders took forever to get filled. The wait staff was very pleasant but the holdup seemed that it originated in the kitchen. I ordered a bone-in ribeye. I thought the steak...More

Thank you so much for dining with us. While I'm pleased that you enjoyed your service and that many others at your table enjoyed their food, I am disappointed that we didn't meet your expectations with your steak. Our Certified Angus Beef bone-in ribeyes are...More

Very quaint atmosphere! Lennon was our server and he was great. The manager was great. We had a little problem with our food but it was taken care of by the server and manager. Steaks are ok but not great for the price we paid....More

We went there two nights ago for our 39th anniversary. The appetizers (she-crab soup and fried green tomatoes) were comfort food done very well. My wife's stuffed tilapia was very good - not great. My prime rib was wonderful. We don't go often because it's...More

Atmosphere is awesome as well. Steaks are the specialty. However, the desert menu was also a hit. Would return when I’m back in Athens.

Yike. Need to up their game on brunch. Slim offerings that might have been weekend leftovers. Salad greens old, cherry tomatoes overripe, gloppy soup. Hungover staff who still made an effort, however. Hip hop music like you were at a game. Most customers were not...More

The food and service here are impeccable. The wait staff can accommodate special requests - both on cocktails and food. We reserve this spot for special occasions, such as birthdays.

We booked reservations for the Porterhouse Grill because we wanted to make sure we had a place to eat (for a group of 7) after the GA-SC game. When we arrived, we were taken straight to the table. The service was great especially since the...More
