For most of us this was our first time having dinner here. Service was excellent. We started with the spicy Pork fritters which I would give a 3. They weren't that spicy nor wow. Several of us ordered the fried chicken which was very good...More

Just FYI... over the last 2 years the health score has been consistently in the low 80s. As of this review it was 81. For a place that brags on being fresh.... not cool.

From start to finish the meal and the service were both excellent. We started with the deviled ham tea sandwiches and the spicy pork fritters. Both were great but I’m still thinking about those fritters! I had the meatloaf and had to take half home...More

Had a wonderful brunch experience at Revival. The food was excellent. Customer service was great. They were able to accommodate our small group of 12 what we called the chefs table. Biscuits were wonderful. We even asked to speak to the baker and she came...More

I have been here for both brunch and dinner. As someone who has eaten good Southern food most of their life I didn't find anything exciting about my dinner, although still good quality dining. I really enjoyed eating here for brunch. We started with the...More

Revival is an upscale comfort food place. Everything is done well. The staff is always wonderful. The building is an old house that they have made a bit like grandma's (including butterscotch candies in the waiting area). We have gone there enough to have tried...More

Visited for the first time as part of an interview process. The food was delicious, but the price ($7 for literally 4 spears of asparagus) was a little shocking. The dessert (chocolate cake) was rich and fantastic.

Kevin Gillespie's restaurant, Revival is a nod to the chef's formative years, offering a proper version of the traditional Sunday dinner served family-style and executed with his precise techniques. Following Gillespie's allegiance to Southern cuisine, Revival focuses on farm-fresh ingredients and a dining experience that reflects the traditions his own family follows. The menu at Revival mimics what one would find at Gillespie's grandmother's house - a classic, Southern spread featuring seasonal options that change daily - but features more refined techniques and the highest quality ingredients.
