The Haw River Ballroom is an amazing new performance space set in historic Saxapahaw, about 15 minutes or so from Chapel Hill & Carrboro. The venue itself is very visually arresting with exposed brick, artifacts from the original manufacturing space and enormously high ceilings. The acoustics are outstanding, and the artisan beers are great. What more could you ask for? It's wonderful to have such a compelling venue in this hip little village and judging from the artist's reaction that I've seen perform there, we're going to see bigger and bigger acts making the trek to the Haw River Ballroom.
There IS table service !!
Food was EXCELLENT !!
Garlic knots are LOADED with garlic and out of this world wonderful !!
Service was GREAT !!! (Millbrook location)
Six of us went to Stella Mare on New Year's Eve (we made reservations). It was the best food, service, entertainment we could have wanted. We wanted to support a local restaurant and we have been frequenting the pizza side for a long time. My sister and brother-in-law (who is Italian) raved about the food and menu selection. The owner and his wife and his staff have always been very friendly to us. Sometimes I think the negativity comes from the customer's own attitude. Remember the Golden Rule, folks! As far as my family is concerned, this food is the best! Thank you, Stella Mare!
Guru has some real Indian food, me and my friend went there and we had NAV Rattan Korma and lamb Rogan Josh. It was outstanding and they have improve the quality a lot better than previous restaurant. I will say its worth going and treating yourself at Guru.
Y'all, Dr. Powell is AWESOME!! She will take her time to explain and take care of any concerns you have, and everybody at Academy Eye Associates is super-nice. Seriously, they all gave their opinions to help me find the rockin' frames I have now.
Apparently the above reviewer didn't take his meds on his visit. We frequent Peony and have never received anything BUT great customer service, not to mention amazing food at a reasonable price. If he (above reviewer) was so "agitated" after just ordering drinks, they should have left, as he suggested. Rather than do so, he acted the child and really only embarrassed himself (and probably his girlfriend, the "frequent diner"). If chain restaurants are his thing (and quite frankly, judging by his rudeness, they are just right for him) then I say "Head to TGIF's, sir! Where luckily I *won't* have to dine with the likes of you!"
Would NEVER go back. I had 2 appointments months apart at this salon, and both times I was seen around 30 minutes AFTER my scheduled appointment. Neither of these times was it the stylists fault, but in the owner's infinite wisdom, he had pushed unscheduled clients onto my stylist, which in turn made him late. When I brought this to the owner's (Don) attention, he basically said everyone has problems. Did NOT apologize or try to make amends for my double inconvenience. He then trash talked me to my stylist after I left, like it was my fault. He is arrogant and unprofessional and I don't care how talented his staff is/was, I would not send my enemies there. The only reason I did not post this complaint sooner is that I didn't want to harm the stylist in any way, when it was ONLY the owner that had made the decision and was the one who was rude. Again, I would NEVER come back to that salon, as there was no problem with the stylists there, ONLY the owner. Maybe if the owner had shown some concern the day I was there and visibly upset, instead of responding to me like a jerk, I wouldn't have had to post anything. I can imagine your stylists leave because they cannot deal with your horrible, arrogant behavior either.
Durham Bookcases (www.thebookcaseshop.com) is located diagonally across Duke Street from Parker and Otis so we go over there for coffee quite a bit. Love their Irish Cream Latte, drip coffee, hot chocolate, and cafe au lait.
I had a really bad experience. BEWARE of the return policy which is no returns no matter what.
I bought a lens extension kit for my daughter and a new filter for her SLR. I brought the camera and lens in the day I bought these two items. The lens kit was $200 (for macro work). I showed the salesperson the camera and lens and asked if they would work with them. He said he was completely sure (like I was a dummy).
When I got home and gave them as a gift it turns out they "fit" the Canon but the macro magnification with this lens is so close that you touch the object you're trying to photograph before it comes in focus. So they really don't "work" even though they "fit".
I brought them back within 10 days and explained how they didn't work with the camera and lens and was told there was no return/refund, even though they had said it would work and it did not. I could only get a store credit to spend more with them in the future! They also would not take back the filter which was still sealed and said it was to stop people renting from them. I explained I could not have rented the filter as it is still sealed but they said no there as well - absolutely no exceptions.
So don't buy anything there unless you are absolutely sure you want it since this is like a third world bazaar or flea-market operation where the buyer must beware and they do not stand behind their advice.
What a fool I was.
We have been to Brasa several times and although the quality of the meat is just OK, we decided to try the Thanksgiving dinner this year, as it was just the two of us. Big mistake. The sides were so awful as to be nearly inedible. The stuffing tasted like stove top, out of a box with nothing in it but bread and some seasoning. The pork loin stuffed with apples looked great but was tough and grisly. Green bean casserole was out of a can, there was no cold cranberry sauce, and the only decent dish on the buffet was the butternut squash soup. I think we would have had a better meal at the Golden Corral; it was that bad.
Never going back, lousy food is so not worth it.
I received terrible Customer Service at Tirzas. The woman I dealt with was extremely rude and condescending. I was amazed to later learn that she was one of the owners. I love downtown Apex and frequent many of the businesses. I will definitely NOT be going back to this store.
Always ask for the Chinese menu or they will give you the one for Americans that has the boring food. Their crispy pork intestines are superb, and the cumin lamb not far behind. You may also need to ask for less oil and less peppers in your dish, unless you like it drowned in hot chili oil and dried peppers. Other than that, the food is very tasty and authentic, and I do recommend it. Where else can you get a jellyfish appetizer and a spicy frog leg entree? It's not for the faint hearted, but it is quite good for the adventurous.
Plain and simple: this is the BEST BBQ joint in the Triangle and probably the state.
Jasper's Place is a Godsend! I've been taking my son there since he was five and daughter since she was old enough to go. The staff is incredible! Each and every one is caring and fun, and I feel safe leaving my children there. The owner, Lisa, is one of the kindest people I've met since moving to Raleigh. And Karen, one of the teachers, has made such an impression on my son that he told me just the other evening, "I just love Karen." They offer drop-in care for emergencies or date nights and track out/summer camp for school age children. I really can't say enough about this wonderful place.
Quickly became big fans of the new Battistella's - inviting space, knowledgeable, friendly service and scrumptious cocktails, food, wine and dessert! A little slice of New Orleans in downtown (facing Moore Square on the corner of Martin and Blount).
Our table of four, including two New Orleans' natives, savored the perfectly fried Gulf oysters, delicate onion rings and horseradish sauce for appetizer. Entrees of shrimp and grits, blackened catfish with crawfish étouffée, and fried shrimp were interesting, flavorful and enjoyed by all.
The finale? An order of espresso crème brûlée and an order of bread pudding with a white chocolate sauce. Seriously y'all, bon appétit.
Can hardly wait to go back for brunch and to sit at the bar to watch the Saints on Sunday.
Bullfeathers is decent restaurant. To find restaurant menus and reviews for Fuquay Varina restaurants go to http:www.fuquayvarinanc.org
I have a particular fondness for their mussels in sauce. Their fish and vegetables with a great mixture of both spicy and mild are great.
Stopped by Piedmont early on a Saturday night with a friend expecting a host of local cuisine served with local ingredients. What we got was slow to non-existent service, small portions and overcooked entrees. My pork dish was dry and fatty served over cold beans. My friends chicken looked more like a quail; it was that tiny. Dinner for two with one split salad and three cocktails; $90.00 plus tip. I will not return to Piedmont.
