This restaurant came highly recommended, and I can understand why. The atmosphere was casual and seemed to be a comfortable gathering spot for regulars, both inside and on an outdoor heated porch. Also, there were many vegetarian options that were said to be very good....More

My husband and I have been visiting Durham for a month. This restaurant is a short walk from where we are staying. We've enjoy lunches at Geer St. Garden 3 times. Not a single so-so meal yet. Today we both ordered the special of the...More

Great service and drinks. Food is standard, good-not great. Had Cobb salad-meh, average. Burger, ok- didnt knock our socks off. Fish tacos got strong thumbs up. Jalapeno hush puppies were tasty.

Delicious sangria was an unexpected twist. Also a lot of yummy local beer options. All the food is southern inspired (mmm haystacks!!) and not the healthiest maybe, but a more refined and upscale way to enjoy southern food.

Came here for lunch with a party of 7 plus a baby. Limited seating (the one big table was taken) inside for a larger group (too hot outside for the baby), so we split up at booths. Food was great -- the parmesan risotto cake...More

We picked this place because it is dog friendly outside. It's a great place to sit and enjoy the spring weather and the sandwiches were too big to finish, although we tried very hard because they were so good. The bathrooms are shielded by a...More

Yes, just google the name and city and click on images, it'll come up, the building has garage doors. I'd post pics here for you but it won't let me attach any.
