We've been to every place in Excelsior. This one seems just a bit special. The food is REALLY good, there is music on many nights, and the service is excellent. What more could you want?

Was fun to visit 318 and see their new menu options. Feel like you can’t go wrong with any of the food choices at 318. They always deliver. I’ll be back.

Stopped in here for lunch while visiting downtown. It is a small, downtown, restaurant with good changing daily specials. We both ordered the tomato basil soup and a salad. The soup was just wonderful and the salad was fresh and served with house made dressing.

We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and sat outside on the deck. Hubby and I split the apple, Brie turkey panini...always delicious. The server was very friendly.
