Looking forward to Persimmons reopening aftet Hurricane Florence. Wonderful spot for an anniversary dinner or to entertain out-of-town guests. Always a pleasure to dine at Persimmons.

Food is good, service not so good the few times I've been. They do have a Sunday brunch which includes Mimosas. Waterview, so that's nice. I take company that wants to eat on the water here.

This restaurant was beautiful and on the water but missed on some of their offerings. The fried sea bass was great, the fries limp and tasteless. Awesome biscuits, service a little slow.

Have been here a couple of times recently and it was terrific. The crispy Brussel sprouts are the best and the cocktails are nice, too!
