Good Service, Great food and cold beer...Can't go wrong! We had 8 women at a table and the servers were more than patient with us. The chef's special was salmon on top of fried cheese grit cakes with pepper salsa and sauce. Another good entree' was the bacon cheeseburger and fries. The peanut butter bread pudding was divine! Must go.

What wonderful food! The servers are outstanding, the menu is stellar! My husband and I love to go for dinner and linger a bit. The draw back frankly are the tourists. When you are coming to what is easily a Fine Food Restaurant you really should make an effort. Coming in shorts and flip flops is bad enough but bring... More

We ordered the Crab Cakes appetizer to make sure we all got a taste. We fought each other off with forks. Too bad it's bad taste to lick the plate, they were that good. Our entrees were grilled salmon and chicken roulate; very delicious! Loved the risotto. Topped the meal off with Banana Fritters. Yummy!

The dining area is pretty big inside and out. There are little shops to visit on the premises while you wait for you table -- which... More

Cosmos was good.... Just not as good as their sister restaurant Cobalt. It always has a line.... So go sit T the bar. Enjoy the kitschy decor. Firecracker shrimp is the best appetizer, so taste the original at cosmos.
