The reviews on this site are accurate about this gem of a spot in downtown Roanoke Rapids. It is an old-world atmosphere with many delicious offerings. My colleagues and I enjoyed shrimp and grits, chicken piccata, French onion soup, and fried oysters. All was delicious, and the staff was very accommodating and efficient. It isn't right off the interstate, but... More

The food is well prepared, the menu is varied and the prices are acceptable. David, the owner, was club manager for several large country clubs in the Washington, DC area and has brought... More

Food is fair, at best, it's over priced and the wait staff is fair. Sunday buffet, however, is very good. Decent spread and good price.

Went there for dinner and was surprised by the cozy setting. The service was great but expected more out of the food, we ordered one pasta dish and one fish dish. They were both quite taste less and there was way to much sauce, which made it feel greasy.
