Overall this is a very friendly family restaurant in a traditional fashion that looks like it didn't change a bit since it opened decades ago. The food is simple but tasty, nothing extravagant or exotic. It may come off a bit on a bland side but it's still very good. The service is reasonable and so are the prices. It... More

We use this restaurant a lot for catering lunches at doctors offices. They always deliver on time, never forget anything, and the food is delicious. Consistency and dependability is so important when catering these lunches. We will continue to use this restaurant.

We went for lunch. We visited based on the name thinking we were going to experience an innovative and maybe even quirky restaurant and menu. The restaurant is large and extremely clean and tidy. It is decorated in a more "formal dinner party" decor. The staff are uniformed in white shirts and black pants. The hospitality was amazing. The owner... More

I work for an office that got a lunch catered by this restaurant. We are in Cary, NC and none of us were aware of this place. Wilson is not that close to our office and we can not describe how pleased we were with this delicious meal! We had a wonderful baked chicken, mashed potatoes, salad, rolls and oh... More

My wife and I had lunch here today had the special with 2 vegetables and a sour dough roll and iced tea for $18.75 with tax. The servings were generous, service excellent and hamburger steak delicious. The owner was very attentive to every table and genuinely interested in our satisfaction. We will be returning!

They need to rename this place. Their food is fine I suppose, but there is nothing different about it, I could make it at home on any regular night. It is safe and boring and just fine. The name is what disappoints. Sweet Tea is very good so that's why it's not a 1 star joint to me.

We were on our business tour headed back to Canada when we stopped in for our dinner. They greeted us promptly and our orders were submitted. The restaurant was spotless as were the bathrooms. The meals were very delicious and plentiful. The deserts looked stunning and I was told they were extremely tasty. A must stop in for yourself kind... More

Great atmosphere. Welcomed with a smile. Friendly and courteous wait staff. Best strawberry cake you will ever eaten served here. Great specials each day or order off the menu. They aim to please.

Something Different is a wonderful place for lunch. We loved the nice atmosphere, very clean & inviting. The chicken salad was delicious, and I compare it at the top of the list, comparing it to my mom's!! We also ordered dessert, and the chocolate pie was very good! Definitely a place we will return to! The price was very reasonable,... More

We attended a dinner for a civic organization and the meal was not very appetizing to look at and the taste was similar. It was a chicken dish with a sweet white sauce, a frozen twice baked potato and green beans that tasted like they came right out of a can. The only plus side about the meal was the... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with extremely good food, attentive and polite waitresses, pleasant music and a pleasing decor. We were there with a bus load of people. The tables were set up and waiting for us. The restrooms were clean and beautiful. There was an interesting mix of furniture, paintings, mirrors and painted trays throughout the restaurant. The sweet potato wedges, served with cinnamon sugar, were crisp and delicious, the best I've ever tasted. I'd give this restaurant a very high rating.
