Constantly good food at this restaurant. Fresh ingredients and plenty of seasoning foremost dishes. Awesome desserts!!! Their pastry is second to none on the coconut cream pie. Awesome must have a biscuit, usually brought before the meal with butter.

Local products served when possible makes everything so fresh and tasty. They care about the quality of everything served right down to the biscuits. Never disappointed. They can't seem to get the temp quite right as it is always colder than desired.

Typical southern home cooking breakfast and lunch fare. Very popular spot that is usually busy and loud. Service is good. Expensive.

It's a little bit pricey, but worth it. Good food, some grown on site. Lots of tables, breakfast all day.

We have been to the Monument countless times over the past 10 years. The food is always good, the service is friendly. The place is spotlessly clean. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the food is a little too pricey just...More

I don't eat desserts even though they look fabulous. I do know restaurants have a great deal of waste in the fresh desserts area and don't begrudge them their cost.
