Four of us had dinner here the other night. The restaurant is clean, the seating is comfortable, and our service was good. I had the planked salmon with a baked potato and salad. Everything was fresh and well-prepared although the salmon was a bit over-done. It was a good place to have a quiet, casual dinner.

It is very cold in there making it uncomfortable. Service was good. I ordered a chicken pot pie which was good the LAST time but it was AWFUL this time. Mu husband ordered a burger which was good. We also ordered the new cheese wedges. They were very good but spicy. The rolls were great.

Three of us dined at this restaurant right off the I-85 at Tigertown. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. We did have to wait quite a while for the food but they were busy and our server kept checking in with us. The salt shakers are annoying as you have the grasp them to grind the salt... More

The parking lot was not full, the restaurant had lots of empty seats, the menu has been downsized with few entries, and the wait time was over 20 minutes. If a restaurant does not have enough servers, then I doubt they have enough people to keep it clean. This has the makings of a place about to go out of... More

For the appetizer we ordered the artichoke dip. The artichoke dip we ordered was luke warm. That wouldn't have bothered me so much if it tasted good- but it did not. They need to learn how to make it or take it off the menu. I ordered a grilled chicken with peach chutney (thankfully on the side). The peach chutney... More

We showed up after the homecoming game, expecting a long wait. Only waited around 20 minutes. They were ridiculously busy, but understandably so! They ran out of french fries! No big deal, though. We had an amazing waitress named Hannah, if I'm not mistaken. She was the best waitress we have ever had, EVER. She did her best to make... More

Excellent service & delicious food as well as cocktails. Who DOESN'T LOVE the rolls(?) ! I love their Kentucky Mai Tai. Had the Cajun chicken pasta tonight. Yummy! As a solo patron, I love that the entrees are large enough that I always have enough leftovers to take home for the next day.

We arrived at 8:45PM. Our food arrived at 10:05PM. The waitress apologized several times. The manager slipped past at one point with a cheery hello. When we asked for our food, he returned to the kitchen. When the food arrived, the manager arrived an apologized and said they only had one cook. A good manager would have rolled up his... More
