First impression of this place - how could it not be cool? There are 2 shuffle board courts out front to occupy your time while you are waiting for a table. There were 4 of us for breakfast and it did not disappoint. Service was good. Unique menu selections. Highlights of my meal were the crispy bacon and the biscuit.... More

After much deliberation, crab cakes were selected by two of our party. Unfortunately, after several minutes our server came back and said they were also not available that night (even... More

I have been to this place several times and each time it was not good, not even good enough to write a review. I try not to write bad reviews unless it is really warranted. With that said, I decided to give this place another try since the chef is Donnie Simmons and he is the most creative chef I... More

I had the pork chop with apple chutney, Carolina gold rice and green beans and it was wonderful! The service was also friendly and efficient as always. I will definitely be returning to try the rest of the new dishes @ ZJ's! Zada's never disappoints and the new menu is no exception.

I recently went here for breakfast with two of my girlfriends. The restaurant has a welcoming feel with friendly wait staff. I ordered the special omelette with smoked salmon, chives, and cream cheese. I was delicious. I would highly recommend this place as a place to gather and spend time enjoying friends and good food.

My son and his friend decided to take me out for brunch, so I played hooky from Church and went. The only requirement I had was, great pancakes. They did not disappoint. The pancakes were amazing and the atmosphere was so nice. So please do not sleep on this little gem!

This is a NEAT place, but the wait is lengthy, and the kitchen gets 'in the weeds'. Expect a lengthy wait for your food, but it's worth it. Kirk is THE MAN.

Super food, super service, super treatment of us & our dog. You can sit outside with your pet, and they will bring him/her a bucket of water. Our waitress was really friendly & attentive. Our food was very tasty; we got the breakfast salad & bunny rancheros & something else that was also delicious. Thanks for being awesome!
