The wait was a little long on a Friday but really worthwhile. The cheese grits were amazing! Great service too.

I've been to Samantha's a few times. One might think it's expensive until you taste the excellent food and finely crafted drinks. It's always the best experience for lunch or dinner. I've had opportunity to try many appetizers and never been disappointed.

This was a bit higher-end than we had thought, but enjoyed a local beer before we ventured out for dinner. Good location.

The valet at our hotel recommended this restaurant and it was fantastic. The fried green tomatoes and shrimp were delicious, as were the roasted mushrooms. The prices were good and service was very friendly.

This place is popular- make reservations or have little patience. Central place- good atmosphere- service I qualify and mature. The menu card is limited= top quality 👏👏👏 Wating time for the food is accepted- If you will be serviced - go there 🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏻‍♂️
