Southern delights
Beautiful old plantation house in a great location (well off the beaten track), no tourists here just locals, which was a refreshing change and very tasty plates of food served. Our server was superb, great explanation of the dishes and speedy service! The Lobster bisque...More ... read more

A beautiful setting for a lunch with girlfriends with window seats overlooking the lake - an excellent start to the afternoon. However, the service was not as expected. Our server looked tired, even at 1pm, and she was not attentive. We needed to get up...More ... read more

We both had crab of some sort for dinner and when they say lump crab they mean lump crab. The crab cakes were delicious as was the stuffed shrimp. But the crab cake was the winner. The staff was very nice and pleasant. The only...More ... read more

We went for lunch and were seated on the back porch overlooking the lake. It was packed with women's groups and the noise was so bad our server had to shout. The food took awhile but we had a chance to talk. Our orders were delicious. I am not going to ding this place because of the noise and slow service, this is their busy time of ... read more

Rose Plantation was a pleasant surprise! Six of us happily devoured crab-stuffed flounder, veal piccata, prime rib and veal marsala. Service was efficient and attentive without being intrusive. Gargantuan slices of homemade cherry pie were a fitting end to a fun evening.

My husband and I had dinner there last night with another couple to celebrate our birthdays.   I would have given the night 5 stars except for 2 things that rather bothered me.  Our reservation was for 5 o'clock and we arrived about 10 minutes early.  We were greeted ( or should I say "not" greeted) by  a man, who I think may be the ... read more

Yet again the people at The Rose Plantation outdid themselves. The food was superb, withe chef introducing every dish, and the accompanying wines were divine, and perfectly suited to the food.
