Absolute perfection! I have always had great food and great experiences at Stove. Since the chef, Sydney Meers, became a James Beard Foundation semifinalist recently, it is wise to make a reservation for dinner - most nights there are few tables available (note: if you show up at 6:30 without a reservation, you may not get seated due to 7:00 reservations). Don't miss the house-made pimento cheese (not your Grandma's pimento cheese) and make sure that you save room for dessert - also made in-house!

The only true five star restaurant in the area. Absolutely love this place! Go in with an open mind and try anything they suggest. All the cheeses and meats are fabulous. Best shrimp and grits on the planet!!!

One of my favorite places to go. Made with fresh, local sourced ingredients and three flavors are amazing. Pimento cheese and any of the soups and you can not go wrong.

I'm so sad there are only 5 stars. The food is always fantastic!!! The diners often end up at another table because it's so much fun. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. SYD ROCKS!

We were a party of 5 with reservations celebrating a birthday. We each ordered different entrees, but had the same experience. The food was under cooked, I mean really under cooked. The bass, catfish and even the pork sausage were extremely rare. The service was slow and not especially friendly, but fine. The only great course was the desert course. And be warned: if you have any type of food allergy, the pretentious staff will NOT accomodate you, even if it simply means leaving off a topping or something. They also will NOT cook your dish more if you ask them to.

The best among many great restaurants in the region. Everything from the bread to the cheese is handmade; some of the vegetables come from the chef's own garden; the meats are always perfect; the dishes are all quirky and delicious and charming and reflect the soul and character of the man who created them.
