My wife had the Cuban beans and rice and I had the flounder. The owner was actively involved and the employees seemed to really enjoy working there. Everything was very good. We will definitely visit again.

This was recommended by a local, and we were able to sit in the bar where tables had the same white linen as in the dining room.This is obviously a favorite spot for locals and visitors. We were going to order seafood but I ended up with the quail special, that had a creamy jalapeno sauce-really good. My husband enjoyed... More

We came here for my moms birthday and it was just perfect. The service is fantastic, the food is yummy, and the ambiance is great. I will definitely come here again.

Great atmosphere. Good service. Excellent food overall. A bit on the pricey side, but worth it. The eggs Benedict Florentine were the best I have ever had. Tuna salad was outstanding. Bacon sits in a syrup before cooking. So it's extra tasty and it had just the right amount of crispiness. Only slight criticism is the cheese grits. If you... More

Attractive venue, innovative menu, top notch service and reasonable pricing. One of a very few restaurants in the area that offers good steaks and knows how to cook them. Full bar and wine offering. A pleasure to go to Cheryl's and enjoy a leisurely meal.

I've been to Cheryl's several times and enjoyed myself with good food and service. Today is my birthday so I thought it would be nice to have brunch. Very disappointing. The service was good. The seating was too close for comfort. The food was less than I expected. The steak eggs Benedict was bland and tasteless as was the avocado... More

Experience was OK - nice atmosphere, really nice service people - food was, in my opinion, pricey for what was served. I don't know if I would return on my own ; perhaps if I wanted to bring out of town guests.

Who knew that behind an unpretentious door we would find this warm ambiance, outstanding service and incredible food. We had the wrapped dates for an appetizer. Perfection in a bite! Wonderful salads. And all of the entrees were beautiful to the eye and just heavenly to the palate. I had the bone in ribeye. Right up there with my all... More
