For my Entree I had the pan seared Snapper that was prepared perfectly . My husband and son had the porcini rubbed beef filet that they both raved over ! We finished with an amazing chocolate torte that is what I call chocolate love ! Yum Thank you Heirloom for an amazing evening!

    Sorely disappointed after reading many positive reviews. My wife had the scallops, which arrived with severe charring, to the point she had to trim away the tops. I had the rubbed filet, weird sweet potatoes and opted to sub mushrooms for the asparagus, which was a terrible move. A couple of the mushrooms were great, but the other three were like trying to cut a dolls hair and tasted only what I can imagine about the same. The Italian wedding soup, unfortunately, was the highlight of our meal. Service was okay, but our waiter said tonight’s soup is absolutely delicious…but then had to look to see which one it was. Ah well, it’s a fine establishment, but one we won’t venture back to. For $160 w/tip, very underwhelming to say the least.

    Really good meal! The spinach salad is so tasty. I was skeptical of the shrimp and grits as I don't normally care for a grit cake, but the flavor was otherworldly and this may be the best shrimp and grits flavor wise I've ever eaten. Very delicious meal! Heirloom never disappoints!

    What an experience. Heirloom is such a gem, and our experience was nothing short of award-winning, from service to selection. • Gretchen took amazing care of us • The dishes were masterfully cooked and perfectly prepared. • The charcuterie plate was one of the most creative that I’ve ever witnessed. Having traveled across the globe for food, it takes a lot for me to say that, but the collection of locally sourced and artistically presented elements really deserves its own moment of recognition. • The assortment of vibrant colors, deep, complimentary flavors, and elegant ambiance created a warm, welcoming experience. • Thoughtfully crafter cocktails were smooth, balanced, and diverse—- as was the extensive wine menu, offering everything from happy hour priced House options, to bottles that would appeal to the discerning Oenophile. • There’s something incredibly special about this place— a seamless fusion of French-Inspired Cuisine and Southern Hospitality. • Cant wait to visit again and explore more of the menu.

    Couldn’t ask more from a restaurant. The apps, the entree’s, desserts and drinks. Melissa told me that she didn’t have the ingredients for my normal Old Fashioned, so I told her to surprise me. She produced on of the best Old Fashioned’s I’ve every had. For apps we got Brussels Sprouts, Crab Cakes and Duck Fat Fries. All were fantastic. The table ordered Fried Chicken, Scallops and Orecchiette. All were great. Then we all got dessert drinks. Wow is all I can say. Go visit or don’t, I prefer you didn’t so I can get my reservations.

    Everything was delicious as usual. Melissa at the bar has really elevated the cocktails as well! I had an amazing pear gimlet martini before dinner and a to die for s’mores martini for dessert. My favorite menu item is still the brussel sprout appetizer. The salmon was amazing tonight. Our party enjoyed the Apple Butter ice cream with warm cookies for dessert as well.

    Usually there for dinner it was a treat going for lunch. I was amazed at how busy they were and thankful I had made a reservation. The Potato soup (soup du jour) was outstanding and prepared differently than I had ever had it. The Chicken Livers were to die for and the Deviled eggs were a hit with everyone. The Fish and Chips were excellent and our friend couldn't stop bragging about them. We had homemade ice cream for dessert and the Apple butter ice cream as weird as it sounds was over the top. We have never had a miss at Heirloom.
