My friend was so excited about having her bday party at this restaurant because she said that she'd heard so many good things about it. When I heard that it claimed to sell southern food, I was quite skeptical bc most restaurants in Raleigh don't have what I'd call good southern food.
Needless to say, the food was bland and tasteless. I'm from the south, so I know southern food. My aunts and grandmother cook better than the chef they have in the kitchen, and they have had no formal training. The salmon I ordered was not fresh even though the waitress lied and said that it was. The mac and cheese was awful, and the rice didn't even have any sauce to go along with it. The restaurant is decorated nicely, but so what. I go to a restaurant for the food, not the decor.
The service was mediocre at best. I had lemonade that was refilled once. At one point, a waiter almost poured water into my lemonade. We waited for ages to get our food. Did I mention that the waitress actually lied about the fresh fish and believed that I couldn't taste/smell the difference.
I will never go back to this restaurant, and I have told everyone who's asked that I don't recommend that they go there either.
