Old bank building with tons of character. Went with a group of 4 for lunch with 3 having sandwiches and one having a salad. Everyone loved the sandwiches (salad also got a good reception).

This restaurant used to be a favorite. But recently the quality of the food has been inconsistent. Also, the servers are a bit snotty. Last night we went for dinner. Our impatient waiter who drummed his pencil on his pad while one of our party was deciding which soup to order, told us the special of soft shell crab was... More

We went for lunch with friends who were visiting. The luncheon menu was good and the food was very good. The décor is set upon this being an old bank building with the old safe doors and other similar items used as part of the decoration. Service was great. Prices were more reasonable than I expected based on first impression... More

Very nice place, fun to look at the old bank areas. The food is very good but expensive. The wait staff are a little stiff. Some of the tables are too close together.

We visited the restaurant for dinner after someone's recommendation. On a Saturday night the place was very lively and had a great atmosphere, we were seated within 15 minutes of our arrival time and Yes we had prior reservations. We tried the fried green tomatoes with shrimp for appetizer, which was great. The entree was average, we ordered the special... More

My wife and I have tried eating here twice while visiting the area, and both times we were underwhelmed by the food. The menu options were great, we just weren't really impressed with the execution and overall flavors, and the service was about average. If the food was better, I think the prices would be justified, but we spent about... More

We had a late lunch today 3/28 and started with oysters Rockefeller which were delicious. The best of all the items we ordered was the lamb sandwich - packed with meat and super flavorful. Worth the drive alone.

This used to be a bank: the "People's Bank" logo is visible on the walls close to the ceiling. And the vault is open for your inspection. The food is quality and in good variety, though a bit pricey. Worth a visit.
