While the old cotton gin atmosphere is interesting and I enjoyed the historical/pictorial features, the food just wasn't that great. Our waitstaff was wonderful, so I appreciated that part of our meal.

The food is very good and it has a pretty view of the creek. In the summer you can watch families having fun in the water.

Even though it was an ugly day of rain my family and I had once again an awesome lunch at The Gin today!! The atmosphere at the Gin is very welcoming. And the attention that our family receives from the staff and management is most comforting to us. The children's chicken strips were excellent because they both made happy plates... More

have been there twice and both times it was a chilly day and there is just a draft going through the restaurant. first time i told manager and i think she could have cared less (still opened the doors at many unnecessary times). food is pretty good, love their home style chips.

Great food. Great atmosphere. Stopped in while visiting daughter at school. Chicken fried steak was very good. Also try the fish tacos.

Stopped here with my running group for a quick bite to eat and a drink. We all ordered different things and everyone was satisfied. The Gin has a cool vibe and the staff was very friendly.

Our meal was amazing and was the service. I would recommend the ribs and chicken breast. For an appetizer, if you like bacon, the Cotton Balls will knock your socks off

The location for this restaurant is nice. The food is ok for lunch, but dinner prices are high for very mediocre food. I really can't recommend it.

Thank Brenda H
