Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been to this restaurant since it first opened and grew to expect the best of the best. No longer true 💔. I ordered redfish and grouper grilled and there is no way those small thin filets came from grouper or redfish due to...catch limit size restrictions. My husband ordered grouper and scallops. Same with his fish too thin and small to be a redfish. The flavor didn't exist and the texture was gummy. So not fresh. Waitress never refilled drinks either. Not sure what happened to what was once a quality restaurant. But we won't go back. It's sad that this gorgeous corner of north Florida keeps losing good restaurants.More

Pass on this one. Tacky plastic decor, rude host. Bad, overpriced food. Get a better fish sandwich at McD. Only good point was a nice waitress.

Horrible food we got the rev up burger to go my fiancé egg was already busted in his fries my burger was medium rare i asked for it to be well done since im pregnant mine was missing a fried green tomato and cheese and...his was missing cheese as well. The fried green tomatoes were cut horrible they were so this it felt like we were biting into a apple. The fries were so seasoned it was overwhelming. I just think if we are spending 40 dollars on food we ought to get something better than what we had and i didn't want to drive a hour back to get our food redoneMore

Fish sandwich 18.00, maybe 4 oz fish. Dry and did not smell fresh. Should have sent back but as it took 30 minutes to get my lunch could not wait for them to get it right. Sent half back with the waitress and let her...know not good. She did nothing.More

We had such a pleasant experience here, the chicken pate was delicious and the mains were both so tasty. I assumed it was run by a French chef but I was wrong, he was a local! 5* to the chef behind the cooking, you’ve done...a fantastic job of bringing France to Bali. (Who would have thought?)More

On the way home we chanced by Rev. What a find! Soft shell crab for lunch with the best veggies in a while. Service was first class and very reasonable prices. I didn't try but the venison and the bison shepherds pie are calling my...name. Don't miss a chance to enjoy this great little jewelMore

Service was just awful. A young girl who could care less and the food was not made correctly and had to be sent back. Didn't bother ordering anything else because for a empty place, the service was so slow. Don't waste your hard earned money....Drive to the next town. Place was not clean or inviting.More

After being seated waited over 30 minutes to have someone take our drink order, then waited another 15 minutes to get some of the drinks. Waitress had to be called back to complete the drink order. The Bistro filet ordered medium was tough and chewy...and no flavor. Their chimichurri sauce consisted of marinated chopped onions, I think they need to look up how to make a chimichurri sauce. Sides of mashed potatoes and asparagus was good though. Burger was nothing special and fries came out cold, but the waitress did offer to take the cold fries back to the kitchen and warm them up. Really how were they going to warm the fries. Draft beer was not cold. FIRST AND LAST VISIT .More

I ordered the pick 2 seafood plate and had the grouper and shrimp. It was average at best. The breading on the shrimp was so thin and had a bit of a fishy taste like it was cooked in old oil and the grouper was...definitely frozen and didn't taste or look like grouper at all. The only thing that was above average were their homemade French fries. If I were to ever go back, I would order something different.More

Not much of a selection in town to begin with so perhaps people just accept the sub-par food. Portions were small and not really well presented.

I ate here several months ago and I am going to be in the area next week so I plan on making a side trip to visit this restaurant again. My experience here was exceptional. The food is so well done, perfect in every way...possible, from the unique menu, stylish plating, savory flavors and finally the excellent service. If you savor the old south, do not miss the collard greens. My mouth is watering just thinking about how great they are.More

The setting is a bit like eating in a warehouse. Service was a bit slow but friendly. My husband loved his shrimp & grits. I had the crab cakes and they were large and ok but had a bit too much filling. They seemed a...bit foundry to me. I'm a harsh critic of crab cakes so perhaps others will like them. The bread pudding was excellent - we took two pieces to go and it gave 3 of us dessert for two nights.More
