We showed up about 5 mins before our reservation and 30 mins later, we just left. There were other people that also had reservations that had been waiting more than 30 mins. We knew we were in for an even longer wait so we left.

The meal we had a very good. We had the special as well as the steak off the menu. All cooked well and the table service was good.
What we didn't like was the 45 minute wait when we had a reservation booked and we were there on time. Why have a reservation if you have to wait 45 mins? That will make me pause before going back again.

The food was really great. We started off with the calamari. It was the most tender calamari that I have ever had. I wasn't happy that they ran out of the specials so early in the evening, I was really looking forward to one of them.
Our server was super awesome. Carissa was pleasant, funny, and did a great job taking care of our needs. She is the main reason we would come back and that's saying something since we were first time diners at this restaurant. We normally focus on the food.
We sat on the patio. It was cold outside but the heaters do the job! The only real complaint I have about the actual restaurant is the table we sat at. It was rickety and we had to ask the server to help us even it out. Cracked along the edges. It snagged my sweater a couple of times.
It was loud. Very loud but this can't be put on the restaurant. The patrons were definitely enjoying themselves, maybe a little too much but again it was New Year's Eve.

Had an early reservation for dinner on New Year's Eve. Food was okay. Service was nice, but it was swamped and noisy! Made for a nice evening.....had the Jumbalya.......it was average, but came out of the kitchen hot and on time. Liked the spice level but maybe the rice could have cooked a little longer. Our waiter was good, but he was busy, busy! Overall a great experience. I prefer dining there in the summer, spring or fall and being seated outside.
The appetizers are an excellent value!

Friendly staff, good menu. I was there on New Year's Eve and would have probably been more impressed if the restaurant had done something, anything, to indicate it was a special night. There was no mention of it, no special menu, nothing.

Great service, food was delicious as always. Shrimp and grits is the best in town, chocolate cake is to die for and you can't go wrong with the southwest wonton appetizer. Would love a year-round Saturday brunch as their Sunday brunch is excellent!

We were lucky to be able to make a reservation for a large group at this time of year. Had to go a little early but thankful to find a reservation. Food was awesome, atmosphere great, seated on time. Wonderful evening with friends for a double birthday!

We made our reservation on Open Table to cap off a fun night in Old Salem with a nice meal and were very disappointed to be led outside to the patio because it was so cold outside. The patio was wrapped in plastic and and contained some heaters so we decided to give it a chance when the hostess told us it would feel warmer when we sat down. It did not. The metal chairs were freezing and the wrap was not secure and the vertical strips that made the 'door' kept out no wind. The food was delicious and piping hot when served but cooled quickly once on the table. I think the restaurant should have contacted us when the reservation was made to let us know that the only seating available was on the patio. We would have gone somewhere else.

Have come here often, but this last time was disappointing. Had reservation for 7, was not seated until 7:30. Upon being seated waiter informed me food would take longer than usual due to a large loud party across the room. When the food came it was really good as usual though. When I got the bill I waited another 15 minutes for someone to come get my card for payment but no one came and so I walked it up to the front to pay.
I like this restaurant but this night my wife and I did not feel like a priority at any point in the night, it was especially frustrating to have to wait so long when I had a confirmed reservation. All the extra time forced us to have to cut our other plans short that evening due to later hour when we finally got out the door.

Had dinner here the night after Thanksgiving. Busy but not too crowded. I had the Blue Surf and Turf (small filet with blue cheese and 4 large shrimp), mashed potatoes and vegetables. Spouse had a small filet. Good size portions, hot and well prepared. Generous cocktails mixed perfectly. Only negative was they forgot to bring our calamari appetizer, but they brought it anyway and comped us. So we ordered dessert, which we almost never do. Chocolate lava cake was fabulous. Good attentive and quick service. Highly recommend.

We met our daughter's family halfway between our towns for thanksgiving. The people were so nice, really made us feel at home. The atmosphere was great- we didn't eat on the patio but that seem to have an especially good atmosphere. Recommended!

This restaurant is convenient to our needs in Winston Salem when we visit, and have been before. On the most recent visit, the interior smelled of cheap commercial cleaner in the same way that bathroom on the interstate does. I very nearly asked my dining partners if we could abort and go across the street, but elected not to make a scene.
I had forgotten how ho-hum the menu is, and at length opted for the burger.
The burger was a burger, no complaints but no kudos, either. The homemade potato chips were not done. The service was fine.
We will not be returning any time soon.

this restaurant n ever fails to please. brought a big group when our son moved back into WFU for his 2nd year and the manager was so accommodating and just wonderful!
brought an even bigger crowd back the other night and Nicole was fantastic - almost doubled the # of guests so we were outside under the tent which was perfect - we all had a great time
our # one favorite in Winston Salem!

The service was a little slow, not due to the waitstaff. They were terrific. I think they may have been understaffed. There were also two parties going on.
Food was good, though the green beans were more crisp than I like, closer to raw. The wine list was pretty good with several personal favorites. The noise was a little high, we dined inside. And, again two parties going on. I have dined on the patio previously which is also nice.
Overall a great dining experience.

Great food on this visit! The servers could use a little more formal training, like not passing the plates across the table, that sort of thing other than that they're friendly and knowledgeable and I'd recommend this restaurant to friends

Two of my college friends went with me on a Tuesday night. We ate outside and the setting was beautiful. Two of us ordered Tuscan Chicken and it was the best I have ever eaten. Our waiter was on top of things and engaging. Only recommendation would be to sit under the fans if possible to avoid flies. Great evening out!
