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!

Great spot with some unique and delicious offerings. Try the bacon wrapped banana peppers stuffed with cream cheese and Italian sausage! Lovely quaint setting with lots of outdoor dining in a charming brick enclosed and tree canopied patio. Our server was fantastic. He cheerfully consulted with the chef to modify my entree to make it gluten free.

I'm not sure if they don't have A/C or if it was just not working, but the dining room was very hot. All of the ceiling fans were on and there were box fans scattered around the room. It would have been cooler to eat outside because at least there was a periodic breeze, and that's with the high temperatures. While the food was very good, I was a little disappointed in the service. I travel a lot for work, so I eat alone a lot. Unfortunately I found here what I do at a lot of restaurants, when you're a female eating alone, you don't tend to get the service that bigger parties do. As an example, a table of 3 was seated after me and they had their food way before I did and the waitress spent a lot of time with them. The other issue I had was that I could see the pick up area for the bar from my table. I watched as multiple servers were trying to figure out what was in one particular glass that was set at the pick up area. I saw at least 4 different people put their noses in the wine glass to smell it. That is absolutely disgusting. If you can't ask the bartender what is in the glass, then have them re-pour whatever your customer ordered. Because of this, I won't go back the next time I'm in town.

I have eaten here many times, this visit really wasn't what it used to be. Food was lukewarm, favors not like they were. Server tried hard but just not sure he's cut out to be a server. Overall it was just a mediocre experience in a town with some amazing restaurants. If it weren't for the awesome patio, I'd have deducted another star.

I dine here often and this was my first bad experience. We waited 15-20 minutes before the waitress took our order. When I mentioned this to her, she became very rude. Her bad attitude spoiled the occasion. My guest, a first-time visitor, was shocked by the waitresses' attitude.

Overall taste of the food was okay, but I was very disappointed in the presentation of the meal.
I ordered a 4oz filet. Being only 4 oz. I was expecting a small portion, but I was taken back when the meal arrived. The steak did not look anything like a filet I've ever seen; it was barely 1/2" thick, if it was even that. It was tender, but still not convinced that it was actually a filet. I ordered medium rare, but it came out on the "done side of medium". Being as thin as it was, I'm sure it was easy to overcook.
My husband had a ribeye, and he was more satisfied with his meal than I was. His steak was cooked properly.
We ordered crab dip for a starter. Dip tasted okay, but I didn't understand the bread that it came with. I would have much preferred chips; or if it had to be bread, it would have been much better if it was toasted. Very disappointing.
Service was not horrible, but can't commend it either; example, food arrived, but had no silverware.
Great atmosphere outside in the courtyard!
I had heard many things about this place, and wanted to try it. I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

The food was average. Nothing that happened that evening said come back. $150 and it was nothing more than a Cheddar's or Ruby Tuesday.
The restaurant seemed to have no air conditioning. There was a floor unit blowing air, but it was warm. It made the meal uncomfortable.
The service was less than average. The server was dispassionate. We wrote it off to a bad server with bad attitude and bad service. Her service left a bad taste in our mouths besides the bland food.
