Came in tonight for a 6:15 dinner reservation. The table was ready for us when we arrived. Mario was our server. He was absolutely fantastic. Gave us great service and recommended delicious courses. I started with the burrata and heirloom tomatoes. It may have been...the best I’ve ever had. Then I had the lamb shank. It was delicious. The hominy risotto was a little salty for me but otherwise a fantastic meal. I finished with a cappuccino. My son and husband had the pimento burger which is a family favorite. My son finished with the donuts which he loved. It was a great experience. We’ll be back!More

We ate here 4 days for breakfast and 1 night for dinner during our weeklong stay at the Ritz. The breakfast is excellent. And service all around is very good. The bar area is great and they have a very wide range of cocktails and...drinks to suit any taste. The only place we felt they fell short was the dinner. The food was good but just not as great as the breakfast. Still worth going for sure!More

The service and food is great. Everything that we had tasted delicious. Bravo to the chef! We got the grilled peach salad, the Florida grouper, and Skillet Half Roasted Chicken. Nothing was left on the plate since everything tasted delicious. The salad was so well...combined. Not many ingredients but that make it good for a starter. My husband loved the fish because grouper does not have much taste but the red sauce gives it flavor. The chicken was amazing especially the cauliflower pure. The restaurant offered us a dessert because of our anniversary and it was delicious. It was homemade donuts with Nutella and coffee ice cream. Omg! You got to order that dessert. Mario was our server and he was amazing! We were very professional but friendly and gave us great recommendations. He made us feel special.More

Wide variety of items to choose from. It’s not a steak house if that’s what you are looking for. Lots of other items from seafood to fried chicken. Very good service and cool vibe.

Great service, but brunch offering is limited due to space constraints. Would recommend walking to the JW Marriott for Citron brunch.

Excellent food, good variety of dishes. I was there several times during a conference and enjoyed it but one night there were groups next to us that talked and laughed so loud our business dinner almost went down the drain. Due to this no 5...points.More

The appetizers,cocktails, and atmosphere was excellent. However, I would say the steak was very tough and not the best cooked main course for the price. Waiters were very friendly.

I ate at the bar for a snack lunch and in the restaurant for an evening group meal and both were excellent. The bar offers local craft beers on tap, and an array of lunch offerings. I had the pulled pork sammies/fries and my friend...had the wings and fries. Both were very good. At dinner their offerings were very unique. I had the fried chicken which was different than the usual style, but it was great. Friends had the steak which they thoroughly enjoyed, and the mac&cheese was a hit also. The deserts were HUGE. The red velvet was the most unique desert that I had ever seen. Get it if you go there.More

Always a great spot. Love the fried chicken and doc holiday. The bar is great and the bartenders are really creative. Try the breakfast buffet.

For us a new addition to the RC and a welcome one. A likeable concept of relaxed restaurant and bar with great selection of craft beers including the very local and good Surplus. It is a gastro pub! The particular room we were allocated lacked...ambience but the overall feel of the place was good. Service was very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable of the dishes and beers. Unusually many of the wines are available by carafe or glass but there is also a much wider selection by bottle. Whichever way the wines are very expensive for what they are. We had the Tuna Tartar, Redfish and Shrimp Grit and each enjoyable but again very expensive for what are simple dishes. Even allowing for the RC context the poor value fir money for what is a gastro pub does detract and hence 4 starsMore
