Enjoyed a fabulous meal at Sassafras - expert service, perfectly prepared Salmon with lump crab cake and the creamiest Southern-style grits I've had - and I'm Southern born and bred! Will definitely return!

After a long traveling day, it was nice to sit in a lovely restaurant (a bit dark to read the menu, but well worth it!). The food could have been a little hotter (as someone else has noted), but it was very delicious and the price was fantastic! Very nice serving staff (sorry, forgot his name for 17-Jan-17), but he...

I always look forward to having dinner at Sassafras. The week of Christmas we visited for dinner. The staff is always very accommodating. I ordered the spicy pork for appetizer. This is my favorite. Just spicy enough but not overwhelming. We also ended up sharing the meatloaf with potatoes and salads. The small salads are about the size of a... More

My husband and I grabbed food to go from here so I cannot comment on the service but the food was excellent. We will definitely dine in next time we visit.

Dined here over the Thanksgiving weekend on a Friday night. Seated right away (reservation had been made). Our party of 4 was greeted by a most friendly server. An order of sweet potato fries was placed. These came out fresh and hot. My wife ordered her go-to when dining out at nicer establishments - salmon. I ordered a beef dish... More

Recommended by a local. Waited for our group at the bar. Enjoyed a local Sassafras brew on tap and was very good. Saw someone eating the fried chicken and WOW what a portion and it looked & smelled awesome. When seated, asked about the chicken and was stated "best on the menu". It did not disappoint! Came w Mac& cheese... More

Had dinner with coworkers. Had the rainbow trout and it was fantastic. Others had the tuna and fried chicken, everybody was happy with the meal. Atmosphere is great, service very good but a little slow. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars

Me & my wife stopped in after a afternoon concert. Without reservations, We were initially told that no tables were available. However, a couple had not arrived for their reservation, so the hostess called and found out that they would not be coming, so we got their table. The shrimp & Grits I ordered, & the beef tips my wife... More

Our second visit, this time with our "kids" (18 & 22) for dinner before a show at the Peace Center. With budding adventure in their tastebuds, the kids were able to try familiar foods that had been updated with new flavors. Both times I've eaten one of the entree specials and have not been disappointed. Pleasant atmosphere, centrally located on... More

The name says it all -- Southern Bistro. Very pleasant atmosphere. Attentive wait staff. Our meals were delicious. Bacon wrapped scallops. Fried chicken. Grilled tuna. Crab stuffed salmon. Very good. Reasonably priced but high end.

Thank Phillip K
