A bastion of New Southern cuisine. I've lived in NYC for years and pride myself on being a foodie. This place is one of my top three favorite restaurants I've ever been to. Now that I've returned home to Chapel Hill I find... (more)

I heard Crook's Corner is the best Sunday brunch in Chapel Hill - and I wasn't disappointed! The Eggs New Bern were delicious as was the Smothered Chicken. I only regret not ordering hush puppies too. I really enjoyed... (more)

My wife and I went on a date here and didn't know what to expect with the unique hubcap facade. She had the shrimp and grits, myself the carolina sampler. Both were great, service was good, it is a cozy little place. Will... (more)

You can't beat their fried oysters. Yeah, it's pricey. The atmosphere is urbane without being insufferably pretentious. I prefer the outdoor seating when it's warm. Staff is friendly. A great place to have someone... (more)

I have been here twice, once for bruch, once for dinner. The place is very nice and service excellent. The food is OK, but honestly not worth its price if you go for dinner. Brunch is less pricey and maybe be worth it, but... (more)
