    Avoid. Staff is less than spectacular, food is just barely edible.

    I'm done with The General Greene. Even with only four people in the restaurant service was terrible, food only meh. Used to be one of the top area restaurants, but their best days are behind them.

    wonderful food but surprisingly incompetent service. after ordering, we waited 90 minutes for our meal. did they fire the entire floor staff and replace them with high schoolers?

    The selection, prices and cleanliness were just a few of the reasons this is my new favorite grocery store.

    Smoked trout for brunch was really good. Start with a brioche doughnut if they're still available!

    The Middleton is a great cocktail. Made with whiskey, mezcal, lime, maraschino liqueur and earl grey syrup.

    Order the mac & cheese, candied bacon, & burger (the buns are perfect, buttery brioche buns). Watch as all the diners around you turn around to find out what smells - & tastes! - so ridiculously good.

    The fried chicken & waffles are great, as is the fried green tomato Benedict -- and the doughnut trio is a can't-miss!

    If you're coming for dinner, the cheese grits with mushrooms (creamy, savory, fluffy, delicious!) and the fried chicken (crispy, crispy, crispy) can do no wrong!
