We absolutely loved this restaurant. The food and service were excellent. We ordered peach and ham salad, a Caesar salad, lamb sausages, scallops, and local trout. All of it was outstanding. The waiter and sommelier were friendly, helpful and attentive. We will go back again!

We had a leisurely lunch here on a rainy day. The food and service were excellent. The southern specialities were one of the reasons we selected this restaurant and they were delicious.

I love the ambiance and location in the Old Edwards Inn. The farm to table fresh produce entices you with several salads to choose from as well as creative soup choices. The free-range chicken is delicious and the truffled mac and cheese a must. Any...More
