Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was yummy!! The pasta was huge and served with shrimp. The stuffed chicken was tender. The salad needed a little... More

Great lunch - butternut squash soup was fantastic and the salad was fresh and tasty. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Server was attentive but did not hover. I would definitely return.

We ate dinner here our first night in Abingdon. They were on a reduced menu - more like pub fare - which we didn't realize until we were seated. However, the meals were tasty and service was very good. We both had fish tacos which were nicely presented and very fresh and tasty. We shared an appetizer of fries with... More

Our Lunches were fantastic. Everyone loved their food. Two of us had the Blackened Chicken Sandwiches, one the Fried Buttermilk Chicken, and one had a... More

We had dinner prior to going to the Barter Theatre for a play. The atmosphere was very cool. We were greeted with a smile and very attentive service at the bar - where we had a cocktail and appetizer prior to being seated. The calamari was excellent! We ordered the Benton's prosciutto as another appetizer OUTSTANDING! My husband ordered the... More

Rain chicken sandwich had a great mix of flavors with sliced pears and blue cheese. Pimento cheeseburger was fantastic. Huge pasta portions for the kids. Good draft beer selection also. Reasonable prices. Will... More
