Eating at the Row House is a fun experience as you are surrounded by new buildings eating in a house. Sitting on the back porch in the summer is worth the visit. Saddly the service even when they aren't busy is very slow. No quick meal break here. The food is tasty and they use quality ingredients but they are... More

Exhausted and starving after exploring city on foot and stop at REI came here for lunch. Best choice I made in city so far!! Good selection on menu. Service was exceedingly friendly. Outdoor seating was great.

I had high hopes that this charming restaurant was going to be a find. Sadly it was just an overpriced whole in the wall with marginal service and below average food. I'll go back and try adult libations during happy hour, but I'll check on pricing before I order.

My husband and I came here for lunch and the grilled cheese was delicious as was the salad. Perfect Bellini and my husband had the steak sandwich on special which was also delicious. Cozy place with great staff!

Nice little neighborhood bar. Friendly staff and a very good kitchen. Friday live music is at least decent, and sometimes excellent. Relaxed vibe makes this an easy place to hang.

Located in a converted house, with various rooms and outside space this place is fun, funky and different Food was fabulous and the service slow but good. I went for brunch and can't wait to go for dinner and to visit in the summer and enjoy one of the outside decks

Great brunch spot. Made me feel a little like I was back in New Orleans with the blues music and decor. Love it.

I just paid 25.00 for lunch. Wow. Because I'm a vegetarian, I had the BLT with no bacon, cake, coffee. 25.00. I've had the excellent but huge grilled cheese several times, but you can only eat so many grilled cheese sandwiches. They say that the size of the potato bread forces them to make the sandwiches so large, but I... More

I have enjoyed the Row House Cafe since it opened but had not been there in a year and a half until last night. It has grown into a clever restaurant with food that is both clever and known. The pot pie, mac and cheese, shrimp and grits were all met with rave reviews. The star of the evening, though,... More
