I was most impressed with this restaurant. We had a lovely table overlooking the water, the menu was varied and delicious and the service was excellent.

Visiting from out of town, we were invited out a local friend who had always wanted to eat at Persimmons. Our table was at the window with a lovely view. The service was excellent, and the food was fabulous. The three of us shared the cheese plate appetizer for three — the portion was more than ample. Our friend is... More

A little pricey, but several nice beers on tap. Crab cake and shrimp and grits were both good. Waitress Tracy was wonderful, attentive. Wonderful waterfront views.

We had lunch today at Persimmons---prompt seating, great service, and great farm to table food. I had the crab cake sammy with sweet potato fries and my husband had the shrimp and grits. There was not a tiny morsel left on either of our plates; it was delicious! Our total bill was 28 dollars. (We drank water.)

We have been here before and it is still very good. Had reservations and service was excellent. We ordered oysters on the half shell which were good, then just appetizers, fried green tomatoes good, and the shrimp and grits spicy and very good.

They have kind of weird hours in that they are open for lunch, close again then open later for dinner. Menus are different for lunch and dinner. My husband doesn't eat seafood, and could have dined on the lunch menu. But when we went at 4pm (we eat early), they only served drinks and missed the lunch menu. We looked... More

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately we do close from 3pm until 5pm so our staff can prepare our fresh items for dinner. Everything we prepare is made fresh daily, we utilize farm to table as well as our very talented kitchen staff to make everything from scratch. I'm very sorry that we did not offer anything of interest to... More

Arrived and seated at 6:45. Ordered drinks. The drinks and bread arrived quickly. Then the waiting starts. 22 minutes before we get checked on. Food made it out in 45 min. I wish I could say it was worth the wait. However, I think the only seasoning that they had today was copious amounts of salt. That did not go... More

A good friend, who believes in the farm-to-table movement, highly recommended this restaurant and chef to me as a place not to miss during my trip to this lovely town. I was not disappointed. I arrive early enough in the evening to chat briefly with the chef, Antonio Campolio, about his guiding philosophy of buying local, buying fresh, and experimenting,... More

Recently had lunch and now want to make sure I enjoy dinner the next time in town. Waterside eatery with lots of outdoor seating. Was a cool January day so dined inside. Really enjoyed the crab cakes and fried green tomatoes. The menu was different with some interesting options. Service was friendly and fast. Small bar area to enjoy your... More
