Upscale dining experience right near the main street of Aiken. I would eat there more if it was dog friendly.

Lots of southern ambiance in the decor and surroundings. Food was very good and service was excellent. While in Aiken be sure to learn about the connection between FDR, the Wilcox Inn, and the railroad. It will make your visit there more interesting.

Visited the restaurant again last night after a while. It’s apparent the new chef has put a lot of new energy into the kitchen. The salmon was great and the filet was fantastic. Happy to say I think things are back on track. Ate in...More
