Visited here the first time for a dinner party. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food was good and the wait wasn't long at all considering the size of our group. I recommend this restaurant.

Food was good but too rich and too expensive for my taste. I just enjoy a good steak I guess. Salmon was nicely done but I can do without capers.

What a wonderful surprise for a business lunch. Server was great. I had shrimp and grits. Tasted so good and filling. The was quiet enough for a good discussion with my friend. I’ll have to come back and bring my wife. So good.

This is amazing it is built in an old house. The service was fantastic but the best was the steak. The best in Macon.
