I had the Patrick Swayze burger cooked medium, added lettuce and tomato, and was very tasty. It had the salsa both on the burger and the bun when it came out. I dipped my fork into the salsa for a quick taste before slamming the bums together and going all in. It was pretty spicy hot but not unbearable to... More

My wife and I had lunch there on Valentine's day. I had blackened red trout and it was delicious. Unlike many restaurants, "blackened" did not mean overcooked with spices that were so heavy that the obscured the taste of the fish. Everything was in perfect balance: the spices added subtle flavor and the trout was placed on a bed of... More

I went to the old location, where they served a bag of chips with your burger. The new location is suppose to have fries, since there kitchen is bigger, so I will be back soon.

I ate at the old location about a year ago but I was disappointed. Since everyone raves about this place, I decided to try it again but I guess I keep ordering the wrong thing. Today I ordered the special which was the Prime Rib sandwich. First, it was cold which I did not expect. Second, despite being cold, the... More

This place is probably my favorite restaurant in Gwinnett Co. I have been going since they initially opened in the old "lunch Box" location. I always liked the atmosphere of that spot but i have to say that the new place is awesome! More seating and very cool upscale but not uptight. My fave foods to order - collard greens,... More

Loved this place. Fish tacos were amazing. Daughter loved the cheeseburger. We sat outside on a warm day during Christmas, and it was so beautiful. Our server could not have been friendlier or more attentive. A perfect early dinner.

We stopped in right when they opened on Saturday morning since this place is a gem and usually busy. The food is great but the atmosphere is even better now. I got a lamb tostada and a spinach salad. My wife got the country fried item. All were great!

Local Republic had made a decision to move locations, and while the restaurant looks nice everyone needs to know that the accessibility to folks in wheelchairs has taken a drastic turn for the worse. To begin our experience, we were directed to a parking lot that does not have handicapped parking and is behind the building. This required us to... More

Finally, LR is at its new location. The place is upscale, yet it has maintained the historic vibe of Lawrenceville, keeping the original brick walls. The balcony has a great view overlooking the square facing the clock tower. I have reviewed LR several times before and the food just keeps getting better and better. At the invitation-only special event Saturday... More
