Stopped by for lunch visiting Florence after moving away 16 years ago. Still a nice atmosphere and the salads were very well done. My son had a steak and found it very delicious. The giant sundae for desert brought back memories. Service was friendly and attentive. A good late lunch.

The shrimp and grits are excellent. Overall atmosphere of the place is pretty nice and the service was pretty good. Every time I travel to Florence for business, I have to stop at least once for the shrimp and grits.

I have eaten here at lunch which is pleasant and more reasonable. Went for a birthday party. Loud, expensive at night for what we had.

I overheard a conversation about this place when I was recently in Florence on business and decided to try it. What a delight! The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and speedy; I was already thinking about the shrimp and grits from the conversation I overheard, and boy, am I glad that's what I ordered! The food was on the table... More

This is one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to. When there are large crowds it seems as if servers cannot manage the party. The good is sometimes not hot enough and there has been cases where I had to send it back. It does not meet my expectation in terms of food and service. If I spend... More

Had been here some years ago with family. Still good food and service. Portions were adequate for lunch and restaurant was clean and nicely decorated. Had lunch size shrimp and grits with side salad and was very good. Did not need reservations for lunch. Wait staff was prompt and made sure we had everything we needed.

Two of us had the shrimp and grits here the other night. If you like shrimp and grits, you will absolutely love their rendition of this dish. Cameron was our waiter and did an excellent job too. The place is a little different, and we had to wait a short while for a table, They have many different choices on... More

We had dinner at Red Bone Alley. Our server did a really good job and our meal arrived quickly and as ordered. Other than that everything was pretty average. Shrimp and grits were okay but definitely not exceptional. Essentially it is fried shrimp put on grits. There was no sauce or seasoning to tie it all together. The barbecue chicken... More

3pm. Too late for lunch, too early for dinner. Went to Red Bone Alley based on a recommendation. Was seated, ordered from a very friendly server, and found the location of the restroom. It was a mess, and the seat in 1 stall was a lesson in balance, bolt is broken and would've flipped someone less observant into the floor.... More

My best friend Donna introduced me to Red Bone in Florence. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was unbelievable. You open the door and are instantly transported to a new world. The chicken and grits, the salads, just about anything is memorable....so much so that I wish we had one up here in Michigan. The wait staff is always... More
