This restaurant has a great ambiance. They have a farm to table menu that really does not cater to vegetarians. If you eat meat and fish, I believe you would have an amazing dinner. The food is really good, we had the roasted cauliflower appetizer....More

Locally sourced ingredients and great menu. We had a picky group and everyone was pleased with their meals. It was a little pricey for lunch.

Great location and cocktails! Drinks aren't cheap but worth it. The decor is awesome and they have outdoor dining. So happy we stopped in.

Staff were very accommodating as we changed tables from inside to outside. No fuss at all. Food was really good and everyone enjoyed their Southern choices. The live band made conversation difficult, even on the patio, but we managed. It is a great spot.

I really enjoyed the Whiskey Jar; the drinks and depth of the drinks menu is outstanding! The atmosphere is great; classic bar with a country flair. Food was also surprisingly good for a place that obviously specializes in whiskey. A really fun and enjoyable evening.
