Great ambiance! Choice of seating from high tops to tables to private dining area. All the details from the artwork to the bathroom decor is A++. The cauliflower appetizer was good and just enough crispness, the pastrami sandwich was flavorful and very filling with the side of skinny fries. The Creme brle was slightly underdone. I like it to be a little jiggly but it was very liquid like. I am assuming not enough time to set. While I would not get that dessert again, I do plan to return and try one of their cocktails and other food items. Glad youre here The Garrison!
I love this place! We had a reservation on a Friday night at 7 pm and were promptly seated upstairs. The ambience is perfect (neither super casual nor super dressyyou would not be out of place wearing jeans or a cocktail dress here). The crab hush puppies were DELICIOUS and I will go back for those alone even though I also really enjoyed the Garrison burger and the various sides. Portions were perfect, quality was great, prices were very reasonable. Im so glad Pineville finally has a place like this!
We had reservations for two for our anniversary & we were seated promptly on the upper level. We arrived around 5:30 on a Saturday night & at that time the atmosphere was great, pleasant, but halfway through our dinner a party of 20 was slowly starting to file in & they were practically on top of us. It was uncomfortable & rude. Totally took away from our experience & we werent the only table annoyed. They are experimenting with the menu which is typical of a new restaurant but the prices were high & menu limited. I would have preferred more vegetarian or vegan options. Our food was good, my husband absolutely loved his meal, mine was just okay. I will say the service was absolutely the best. We were very happy with our server & staff. We will go back, we just hope the menu expands & the management considers the experience of all customers when booking large groups.
I am so thrilled to finally have a cocktail bar in Pinevillebetween this and Margaux, our Main Street has a whole new buzz to it. I was about to write my own review, but honestly while sitting here trying to write it I heard the following across three different tables - which sums it up even better than I could: (1) if I was on de*th row and was allowed one cocktail for the rest of my life it would be this one (2) this is the freshest lettuce Ive ever eaten and (3) I dont live close but I make it a point to take the jobs that bring me to Pineville so I can stop in for lunch and get your sandwich and fries. Some other reviews on here or OT that mention changes in menus or slowish service, however I promise give this brand new restaurant and team a chance - they are working hard, happy to be here with you and get even better by the day!!!
After having visited Margeaux next door a few times I have really wanted to try this place and it did not disappoint. I stopped by for a late afternoon lunch and had the Garrison Burger with steak fries. It was incredible. There were countless others items I plan to try in the future. I sat at the bar and the service was impeccable. Jah was the bartender and he was friendly and very complimentary of the food. He suggested the burger I had and nailed the recommendation. Kevin (owner) has a very good thing going with these 2 restaurants and you won't be disappointed when you visit.
