Been here many times and everything is always great. Fine dining with a casual country twist. Last visit was for mothers Day and the buffet was amazing. A great place in downtown Montgomery.

Was so excited. First trip to Montgomery. Central was recommended for foodies - classic southern with a twist. Came with two colleagues. First round martinis. Had to send mine back. Thought it was too much vermouth but turned out to be the most bitter olive...More
