Went to lunch/brunch after church. We were sat next to a window and the ledge had not been dusted in forever....Didn't realize the menu was rather limited in options so we all had the burger, which was very good. I get that the staff is supposed to look edgy because they are trying to give that vibe, but our waitress... More

We have been to The Revelry countless times, as they continue to not only astound us with their menu, but also with warm welcoming ways. We are always made to feel like family there, despite the upscale ambiance. Years ago when we first went there (with two young kids), we thought perhaps we'd be somewhat unwelcome as often the more... More

I had read great reviews about this place, so I decided to take my mom to brunch here. It's a cute little place, parking was easy, and the restaurant wasn't too crowded. (I was expecting it to be packed from the reviews) We were seated right away, but wasn't approached by our waiter for about 10 minutes. I ordered the... More

Very busy and full of life. We made reservations on the Friday morning before we had dinner that night...good idea, because it was packed. Appetizers were creative and really good. Dinner choices were a little limited. I tried the fried chicken and grits...not the highlight of the menu. Good, friendly service, a little pricey...but a nice night out.

We had an array of items on the menu. The Oysters were great! The fried green tomatoes and deviled eggs were also. The service was outstanding. Would go back again and again.

They have a great selection of southern influenced foods that hit the spot. Food, service, drinks, atmosphere-this place has it all.

The trendy decor and great vibe met us the minute we walked through the door. Loved walking on the glass floor with a great view of the wine cellar below. Thrilled they were able to accommodate our group on such a short notice. The wine was delightful and the food delicious. The entire menu read more like a sampling of... More

Heard good things about this restaurant and went on a quiet Wednesday evening. There were maybe eight guests in the dining room and the staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed oysters (great selection, first rate with two lovely dipping sauces and lemon) and the biscuits (heavy but very good) as a first course. I had the duck, and the... More

We met another couple there last evening. We had never been- (went on awesome friends' recommendation) but our friends had. We walked in early. They were already hanging at the bar. We joined them and ordered a beverage. Our bartender was most awesome. His name was Mack. He made me a most excellent drink which was a tequila pineapple gimlet... More

I never give 5 stars on general principle. But the local lettuce salad and pork shank was really really good. I ate at the bar and it was loud but thats maybe cuz I'm 'less young'.
