I had the scrimp and grits there, and it was very good BUT a little to spicy for me. My wife's dinner was super good to (and not spicy) rofl. We are taking friends there next month.

Have always had a great time each time I dined at Round Bistro. Dinner is an adventure, new specials every night. What ever you order, add Sweet Potatoe frys ! Always take out of town guest here for lunch, everybody can find a sandwich or salad they will love. There is a small party room in back that doubles as... More

I ate the olive oil poached salmon. The salmon was delicious, but the sides were terrible. The rice was hard and tasted like it had been re-heated. This was an extra side, and it was very small. The asparagus portion was small and half of the stems were too hard to eat. The veggies portion was not even half a... More

The Round Salad is Awesome! Mixed greens, blue cheese crumbles, onions, radishes, candied pecans and the best vinaigrette dressing. They have a baked Italian roll that you HAVE to try. I got the Sweet heat shrimp and they are a great combination of just that, without being too hot. They are breaded so delicately, you can really appreciate the shrimp.... More

Stopped by for lunch, Sunday of a holiday weekend. Not crowded. Menu offered some interesting items. We tried a couple of the wraps. A Reubens & a Sundries Tomato w/Chicken. Both very good. The wrap; once filled was baked. Very tasty. Service was a little slow but too bad. Will return to try other menu items.

Went there for the first time on Sunday for a take out order. Heard the She Crab soup was delicious. Must have been trivia night, because lots of people there with games. Seemed like we were intruding by picking up our order. When we opened the bag the one large container was two small containers which was okay except the... More

We have been here couple of times and the overall feel is that the food and the service is inconsistent. While the prices are average, we expected more from the food.

Numerous reports of foreign objects in food, poorly prepared food, slow service and surly ownership. Now i find out employees being defrauded of wages. Not good.

We enjoyed our first visit to The Round Bistro! My sister and I had a rare evening to ourselves and decided to give it a try! We started with the Sweet Heat Sesame Shrimp, it's tempura battered with a sauce that starts sweet but finishes with a little heat, the round salad is one of the best side salads I've... More
