We went for dinner shortly before Easter.

First to know: The restaurant has two floors. Upstairs is very casual and really, you're sitting in the bar. Downstairs is ground level and is a more formal sitting / dining area. Unless you want to watch the game, you probably want to sit downstairs.

The food was astonishingly good. I started with oysters imperial. Fresh oysters. Great crabmeat. Well seasoned and perfectly cooked. It was a joy. My main was their famous smoked duck. The theatre was great, but more importantly, the duck was delicious.

All in all, it was a great experience. Strongly recommend.

We has a superior dining experience at SB at Easter brunch. The restaurant was nearly full but conversation was still possible at normal levels. The menu was limited selection but price fixed. We both had the bacon crisp, which was a bacon cup containing asparagus and tomato. Beautifully presented and delicious. This was followed by a bacon and bleu cheese, somewhat light on the latter, salad. This was lifted from the ordinary with a dusting of sweetened walnut crumbs. My entree was surf and turf eggs Benedict — spoonbread, crab cake, tenderloin, poached egg with Hollandaise. Perfectly prepared. Partner had lamb with fiddlehead ferns. Both excellent. Dessert was a banana foster cake with gelato and a smores torte. Service was excellent without being intrusive. Server presented fresh utensils with each course, brought on towel covered plate. BTW untensils are copper hued, which is accent used throughout the restaurant. Overall experience was excellent without a single negatve.

We went to Spoonbread tonight and it was wonderful. The atmosphere was relatively quiet and comfortable. The food was fantastic and the service attentive and informative. I had the Black Molasses Roasted Duck, served under hickory smoked glass. It was delicious. My wife had the Smoked Cicken Breast that was also wonderful. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but is perfect for a special dinner.

We enjoy eating out and although we have our favorites, we try to go to some newer restaurants. We made our first visit here on a Saturday night — we like to eat early but that means we don’t get a good “taste” of the atmosphere since it is so quite when we are there early. Our server was Laura and she was fine. The food was good — lobster pop tart, cat/sea/pig, mussels, lamb — but nothing real earth shattering to make us put it in our regular rotation.

SBB met our needs--the food was tasty, menu was diversified, our server did an excellent job. Cocktails were well-mixed. The desserts were rather ordinary. We will go back again!! This location has housed at least 10 different eateries over the past 25 years....SBB is, by far, the best yet.
