“Nice setting. Great staff. Awful food.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

Food is awful. Soggy salad. Grisly steak. Shrimp pretty tasteless. "Spicy" is bland and blah. Specialty donut holes greasy fried and tough. Expensive for the food quality you receive.

Nice setting. Attentive staff who oversells the food..but I guess that is their job. Keep looking.

“Overpriced food that is just ok for the area”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 via mobile

Have been here numerous times over the years. Always the same thing, somewhat uppity attitude from senior staff that thinks they are working at a High end Restraunt. Their prices are in line with better Restraunt's, but the food is not. The menu is limited and the food is usually warm at best and if there's any kind of evening rush of customers I'm sure someone in your party is going to have cold food or want to send it back for some reason, usually what you wanted not getting communicated to the cook or the lack of his caring to get it right.

So you say, "why do you go back?"

The issue is that this is the ONLY Restraunt in the Caro area that you would take good customers to. So set your expectations somewhat low and you may be pleasantly surprised. It's like rolling the dice, you never know what your going to get. The One thing they are absolutely suberb at is the desserts and the Rasberry Ribbon pie is worth getting thru the rest of their lackluster offerings

“THE ENTREE'S WERE AWFULL”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

OVERLY SWEET... Had I tasted my son's dinner In the beginning ( Almond Chicken ), I Definitly would have sent it back! It tasted like they pored sugar syrup over it. The Beef Tips...the sauce tasted like brown sugar, Not good at all. My Burger was very dry and the Ribeye had way too much rosemary on it, thats all you tasted. Had we not been out with other family I would have sent it all back! The Chef really should taste what he's sending out! Really Bad Tasting Food...
