The bar was efficient and then we were seated. And then the wait kicked in. We ordered and the wait just kept up. There was a group and the kitchen couldn’t keep up so when the entrees came out it was just too late and...More

Athens came as the final stop of our dixieland vacation. So, after 15 days, we were tired to look for a restaurant every night, and were also running out of options. Unbelievably, I had not yet tried the green fried tomatoes, and just could not...More

I really wanted to like this restaurant -- the setting is unique and the service was great. I had the shrimp and grits and my son had the barbecue plate. The shrimp and grits were too spicy for my taste -- I drank about three...More

I recommend this place to anyone coming to Athens looking for a place to visit. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the glazed salmon is my absolute favorite. The sides are so yummy that sometimes it's all I order. The duck fat...More

The food was delicious—I had steak and my daughter had lamb chops, but we were there on a Sunday night before a Monday tour of UGA (not a game weekend) and our food took quite a while to arrive. Additionally, they had about 9 entrees...More

My family and I had lunch here last Friday. I have had brunch here on Saturday. Lunch menu is different. I had a hamburger and it was wonderful.

We ate here for brunch on 9/23/18 and had the Mediterranean Omelett and the shrimp bacon and egg burrito, and the food was absolutely on point! The fresh squeezed OJ was also delicious! We will definitely go back next time we are in Athens!

We met friends for dinner prior to a concert. Part of our party arrived 10 minutes prior to others arriving. The hostess wouldn’t seat anyone until all four of us were standing at the hostess stand. Strike one. Server took beverage orders and shortly thereafter...More

I don’t know if the food is good. We stopped by to eat 1:45 before a Comedy show at the Classic Center. I guess we should have allowed 3 hrs. They wouldn’t seat our table of 4 until everyone was there, even though the seated...More
