“Location and Atmosphere were nice”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

I did not eat here, although I did jog by it and the outdoor seating and interior were classic downtown style fine dining. I would try it out if looking for a nice dinner spot.

“Hit or Miss .. mostly "hit"”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

For South Georgia, this is pretty good fare. And most my meals their have been enjoyable. But like ALL restaurants it can be hit or miss. Last time was a miss... mostly due to steak being overcooked and waitperson not the most attentive server. All in all, if you’re in this part of Valdosta, you’ll be pleased. And nice, restored historic downtown to walk around...

“Food good most of the time.”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

My wife and I used to go there to celebrate special occasions. The food was good. I especially like the sesame-ginger crusted tuna steak. They also had/have a good pepper corn steak. The food is very pricey and for this town it does really rate upscale. But over the years it seems to have stagnated. No change in menu at all, no evidence of a chef that tries to come up with unique and local dishes. Before we go back again we will probably ask around and see what people think.

“Very average”
Reviewed 19 April 2012 via mobile

My wife had a gift certificate so we decided to use it. Wow, the service was horrid. Not sure what was going on but the service was incredibly slow. Our waitress apologized and whined about all that was wrong, but there was no way the food could make-up for the service. I had salad and steak and it was pretty average...it was a pepper steak but it had some kind of sauce over it....but no way to tell what it was. My wife had a salad and crab cakes which she said was good.

“Good food, lit dimly”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

We visited early on a weekend evening and the restaurant was quiet. There are tables outside for open-air dining but we chose a table indoors to get away from the heat, even though the dining room was lit rather poorly. The menu was good, however, and the service was prompt. The food also turned out to be good quality and well presented. An extra side dish of vegetables is recommended if you're really hungry. The adjoining bar seemed to be lighter and more of a 'scene', with live music on the go.
