Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery.

Come experience the garlic for yourself.

We hadn't been to The Garlic in several months. My wife wanted to go, so we got there for the early bird special on Saturday.

Parking was tight, which meant a good crowd. Our first time to sit in the "courtyard"; hot but great atmosphere.

My wife ordered the eggplant; she commented that it was the best she'd ever had, and was more than she could eat.

I ordered crab cakes; they (two) were very small, but very good. I could have easily eaten more.

Service was above average.

With a half carafe of wine, and tip, the bill was a little over $56.

We will go back.

The restaurant was very loud. The waitress didn't explain that you where to use the oil and vinegar on the salads she just flopped down in front on us and didn't say a word. We didn't know so we ate the salad without dressing because we didn't know. She never came back to the table to refill drinks. We ate the meal without any drinks. Glad we live five states away.

When you walk in the scenery is beautiful. The menu is overly priced for regular food which is why it gets 3 starts from me. The service was ok. I understand restaurants play live music, but my dad had just gotten brain surgery, and loud noises were hard on him, and they were un able to move us to a new location. I was concerned for my dad the entire meal.

We visited this restaurant with our family and it was worth it every minute we were there. We had sea food italiano with house salad. I love the garlic bread and some oil they mix on the table for starter. Service was good, restaurant ambience was so good. Servers were super faster. Wish they could have a military discount.

The food was great. The service was good. But the wait was long! If we go again, we will get there as they open. A long wait was not good with a toddler in tow. We were told they only took reservations for parties larger than 10.
