“Not Farm to Table!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

We enjoy finding restaurants that make delicious meals out of local produce. This is how we found The Phoenix as we googled farm to table restaurants. We cannot prove that this wasn't local, but it definitely wasn't fresh!!!

The grilled romaine was super tough and probably would have had brown edges had it not been grilled. My Salmon (local?) was over salted and skin was left on part of the bottom - Yuck!!! My husband's entree had chicken with rubbery uncooked skin and his steamed Kale had the stem in it!!! All in all, not fine dining or farm to table. If you are looking for a restaurant with live entertainment, Beer and a Burger- you might like it.

“Great menu and life music”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

What a treat this place was for the taste buds and the ears. A local live musician played while we ate...he was very talented. The Boudin a Ball app was super nice and large. The local brews on too were nice and cold send the waiter and staff were very accommodating and friendly. We will be back.

“Needs some work”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Not very well run-out of nearly everything (blamed it on festival). Could not seem to get the seating right-put us at the bar when there were tables open. Was here when it was the Quarry-same issues-avoided it then-could be the same management team.

“Just ashes”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

First of all it took waaay too long to get the food which ended up being mediocre. The home fries were cut to big and the po boy came with nothing other than the shrimp and the bread. Also we ordered bloody Marys which we *thought* were on special for $4 along with the mimosas--all written together on a blackboard--but turns out they were $8 (not written)and when we noted this and asked if we could be given the $4 price, we were told it wasn't possible. Finally we waited nearly 30 min for the check and there was only 2 other tables. Really disappointing overall and considering it was the white squirrel festival you'd think they'd up their game a bit.

“Lovely brunch”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We had a party of seven for Sunday Brunch. The waiter was great. He obiviously takes pride in his job and treated us like royalty. Everyone had a different dish and the food was excellent. The ingredients were so fresh and the combinations of flavors made each dish a surprise. We had Eggs Benedict, Shrimp and Grits, Ratatolli, Biscuits and Gravy, Coconut Curry Soup, Crawfish Balls
Sweet Potato Hash, Stuffed French Toast and on and on. The atmosphere is lovely and reminds you of a quaint coffee shop with a nice bar. They also had a jazz band that began at 1:00PM. We were all happy with the entire dining experience and that is pretty amazing when you have 7 people with different tastes.
