We had a great meal here. My salmon was perfectly prepared and service was excellent. It was busy but there was no waiting at any point. Prices were very reasonable for the caliber of the food. The owner himself was there and took our payment when we left (it was a pay-at-the-front place). He ensured we enjoyed our meal and... More

Clean and neat facility. We dined here last weekend and it was great food and service. The restaurant is always clean and in order. Would recommend if you want unique food with a pleasant atmosphere without high pricing for dinner.

Really enjoyed tis restaurant. The food was well prepared and the service was very good, too. The chef/owner actually brought the food to our table and came back to see if everything was good.

Have been here many times and I always try something different... (get it) There is so much on the menu to pick from and service is always great. American favorites and greek flavors too, I always go for something I may have heard of but come back to my favorite dishes. Try it all and something different...enjoy.

Not only was the food delecious and the service excellent, the hospitality of the owner was amazing! After visiting the NC state zoo in Ashboro NC we had dinner at Something Different with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. The two year old was crying and basically having a fit as soon as we sat down. In lass than a... More

This place has been in business for some 20 years and we've patronized them. The food back in the day was "very good - excellant" however, the food just isn't what it use to be today. It's not just my wife and I having noticed but, just earlier this week I spoke to someone that was part of a group... More

The Shaved meat Kabob is marvelous, but the variety of the menu has a wide array of American types. The service is excellent. The choice of Seagrove pottery for sale is eclectic. The prism sculpture --chandelier in the far dining room is a work of art. Please refrain from touching this floating, delicate tetrahedron in crystal, but really study it's... More

A group of 22 had dinner there recently and everyone enjoyed it! The staff was very accommodating and the food above average. We would highly recommend this restaurant. We were all from out of town for a wedding and thanks to Something Different for adding to making this a memorable event!
