Good selection of choices, friendly staff and nice historic setting. Located on Main Street where you can shop local fare and then enjoy a meal. Nice bar area & local specialties. Quaint and cute.

The waitress was very nice. The food pretty average. Cost is a little on the high side. It is located on Main Street with nice little stores around. We like Waxhaw, and thought we would give it a try. I would recommend it. It helps the local community. It's worth the visit.

Unpretentious and pretty solid choice for any meal. Service is usually good and the food is good. Nothing fancy but good American fare. This was the first restaurant I ever went to in Waxhaw and we have been back many times.

There was an hour long wait at another restaurant nearby and we chose not to wait. Walked up the street to Rippingtons and had an excellent dinner. There were 8 of us. Service was friendly and efficient. A varied menu. Their pea soup was excellent as were there crab cakes. We will definitely return.

The strawberry dressing on the house salad is to die for and the French dip is excellent. A very relaxed dining experience

Service was bad but the food was even worse !!! We ordered and one came out completely wrong. The other was cold. They took the first one back to "re do"... it came back 40 minutes later and was not eatable. There were no apologies and we simply paid the full bill and left. Will NEVER go back !!!!!

Historic building is beautiful and takes you back in time. Menu is interesting and food is good. Window seating allows view to quaint little town's Main Street.

Busy little restaurant in former store front. All three of us had the steak with white sauce and mashed potatoes. Steak was very good. White sauce? Not so much. I'd order it again but without the sauce. Very reasonably priced meals and wine. Waitress was good but had annoying habit of addressing us as "luvs". Would have preferred a simple... More
