My "sweetie" made VALENTINE's 2011 most memorable. He took me to dinner at 'THE GREEN ROOM'. (THE GREEN ROOM is a beautiful restaurant with the ambiance of simple elegance; exposed brick and rich wood, intimate low lighting, and gorgeous art pieces provided by local artists. The owners and staff are amazing! The food is scrumptiously delicious and presented in elegantly, simple sophistication. If you haven't been there yet, it is a MUST! THE GREEN ROOM is located next door to SHARKEY's, across the street from MAST GENERAL STORE). As we entered the restaurant, we were greeted warmly by the hostess who seated us promptly. Our waiter, greeted us and brought our drinks; then came a basket of delicious breads accompanied with specialty butters and an infused oil...exotically tasty! Next followed a Spinach & Artichoke Dip...smooth, creamy and flavorful! Then the entrees made a grand appearance, each tantalized and satiated the taste buds...one, a Shrimp & Grits dish, slightly spicy with Andouille sausage; the other, an elegant display of Meatloaf nestled atop baby pearl peas and jalapeno macaroni-n-cheese, all perfectly seasoned with one layer complimenting the other. For dessert, the Berry Cobbler was recommended...it was a perfect choice! The cobbler had a crisply browned, sugared crust floating atop plump and pleasantly tart berries simmering in a bubbling bath of natural berry juices...all I can say is, "Y-U-M-M-Y"! All of this beautifully, delicious food was expertly prepared by Chef Andre. (KUDOS!, Chef Andre!). The finishing touch was a glass of champagne. It was perfectly chilled and delicately flavorful to the palette. My Valentine 2011 was extraordinarily special; thanks to my "sweetie" and the wonderful staff at THE GREEN ROOM.

I had been wanting to eat at Cateran's ever since I moved into the neighborhood nearby. And to be honest, I can't believe I waited so long! I absolutlely loved it! It did feel like I was back in elementary school, waiting in line in the lunch room. But it was great. The food was so filling, and so wonderful. It tasted just like my Mother's and Grandmother's homemade cooking! The atmosphere was delightful, because there wasn't any loud music, noise, or people. It was a very relaxing place, and the service was excellent. Our waitress was one of the best servers that we have had in.....ever. She made sure that our glasses, and everyone else's, were never low or empty. She was a very nice girl, that was genuine. If I could, I would eat there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And if you like peach cobbler, then you definantly need to try theirs. Oh man. It's really good. So if you're looking for good, filling, takes you back to your child-hood, makes you wanna smack your Grandma homemade soul food, then eat at Cateran's. It worth the wait. : )
LOVED THIS PLACE!!! They had an extensive drink menu and the food was great! This was the Best Philly Cheese Steak I have ever had and I am very picky about those. The music is very loud so its not really a place to go and catch up with a friend. We stopped by during happy hour and enjoyed all many good drinks. The games were pretty cool. We spent almost 2 hours playing. The only thing I'd say was a down side was that it took awhile for a waitress to come by to take our orders and we asked for extra napkins a few times before we got them. But it wasn't horrible. I can't wait to go back and I'm bringing more friends with me.
