“Bad food-very disappointed”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

My husband, daughter and I dined here on Tuesday night to celebrate her birthday. The three of us were seated promptly but at an odd shaped table which could have easily held six when there were many empty booths which would have been more conducive to conversation for the three of us. We ordered an appetizer of homemade chips and tortilla chips with two dips, blue cheese and spinach. The blue cheese dip was pretty good. The spinach dip was not so good..pretty much like eating plain spinach with no other flavor. Mind you this was $14 appetizer. Our Caesar salads were OK but nothing special. My daughter and I ordered the smothered chicken entree. The chicken was VERY DRY. ( I had to drink lots of water to get it down.) Instead of being smothered there was a little sauce and a few peppers, and onions atop the chicken. My daughters green beans, which I tasted, were very good but my baked sweet potato was over cooked and very stringy.
My husband ordered the shrimp and grits but did not eat it. He said it had the consistency of this mornings oatmeal and tasted about the same. (This is a man who never complains about restaurant meals.). He did eat the 4 small shrimp in the
dish. Our total bill was a little over $90 W/O the tip. We felt ripped off. We won't be going back anytime soon, if ever.

“Our dinner was very good”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Service and staff was excellent. All the food we had was very good. The owner was working her tail off trying to clean tables, supervise and help out as it was a very busy night. I can not think of one bad thing to say. It is a little expensive for Statesboro but the food was tasty. I would return again.

“Sorry, we are out of menus....”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

The hostess couldn't seat us because she was "out of menus". How does this happen? They were clearly not very busy.
We sat, waited and watched 3 parties be seated (with reservations). When we finally were seated, our waitress stopped by to ask if we had been seated long. Shouldn't she know who is in her section and for how long? Another server stopped by to ask if we had been helped yet (our drinks were in front of us and we had menus in our hands).
We ordered chips and "seafood" dip for starters and were unimpressed with the melty cup of imitation crab.
We ordered two $26 boneless ribeyes; medium rare and medium with Caramelized onions and mushrooms.
Our steaks arrived with barely sautéed onions, a couple of mushrooms on top of amateurly overcooked meat. At that point we had had enough. We explained to our server the situation and she apologized, offered to comp the steaks and get us something else. We asked her to get us our check. Our entrees were comped and it was another 20 minutes before we were cashed out and could leave. No manager or chef came to follow-up.
WILL NEVER RETURN
