The steak here was good, but not great. The wedge salad and baked potato were well prepared. The server was kind, but in no great hurry to do anything.

Absolutely fantastic as usual. Ryan’s never fails to impress. Wife’s steak was a little over done but they replaced very promptly and comped a dessert. Looking forward to our next visit.

Lamb chops were absolutely marvelous!!!Even though it was crowded , the service was excellent. The atmosphere was beautiful, and the staff were full of smiles.

Celebrating a good oncology visit at nearby Wake Forest BAPTIST medical center, we enjoyed delicious rack of lamb, collard greens, and scalloped potatoes. Service proved fast and friendly in an understated elegant environment. Tucked behind buildings surrounded by woods, this place is truly wonderful.

I ordered the chocolate martini, than got the spinach crab dip! It was banging, juicy the horseradish sauce was off the chain. It’s worth the money. Do it!

Absolutely, the unfortunate part is we are almost completely booked for Valentine's at this time. Give us a call and we will let you know what we have available. Thanks Kelly
