New at Citysearch -- not sure if this is a review?, but my wife Donna and me come here at least a couple times per month and usually sit in the bar area. Great service, friendly patrons and staff, great wings and prime rib! and the beer

The bar and restaurant are AWESOME. Just moved to the area and I am certain I will watch every NFL game here this season! They have the NFL Sunday ticket, cheap beer, great selection of draft beer (Landshark!) and their food is

Servers are fun and bar is is a nice place to relax with some good drafts. I hit this place on Monday for the dinner specials which makes it a good deal in my book.

The food was great,but the owners Maria & Nick Fotino need to sell the place to a new owner that knows how to treat their staff.No one should be talked to or treated the way they talk to their staff. It completely ruined our meal.\r

I don't care if they have the best food in N.C., I cannot tolerate the rudeness management shows toward their wait staff. Safari Miles has a very professional, courteous wait staff that offers their customers great service! Too bad

The food was decent, but we over heard the management speaking so rude to the staff. It was ridiculous. Not sure how this business is able to keep any staff. Can't over look good food for being unprofessional.

If you like wings you have to try the Jamaican Jerk wings. They are out of site.

My family and I eat at Safari Miles very often for lunch on Sundays.They have great lunch specials and service.I was shocked to read the 1 star rating from a previous review and don't believe a word of it.We have been eating there since they opened and have always had any complaints (very rare) handled with courtesy and quickly resolved.We have lived in this area all our lives and were so happy when this quality restaurant opened as there were few choices here.

I ate lunch at Safari Miles last Saturday. It was a pleasant surprise to get a well-prepared meal at such a reasonable price. The appetizer by itself filled me up. And it was worth a trip just to be able to eat vegetables instead of french fries. My waiter was attentive and courteous: it was truly Southern hospitality at its finest.

I wish I could give this place ZERO STARS, one star is being generous. I am so disappointed in my lunch experience today. I work in the area and used to eat at Safari Miles at least once every couple of weeks. After my meal today, I WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN.

I simply asked the waiter if there was some way to add a side of fried shrimp to the fried oyster lunch special (which I have done several times in the past for an additional charge.) After he checked with the owner, Maria, he informed me that it was not on the menu and so they did not have to serve it. I said, "Oh well, that's stupid. I guess I'll just take the oysters."

When the oysters arrived they were so over cooked and over breaded they were crunchy and I had to pick the breading off, but ate them anyways because I was starving. As I was doing this, Maria came to the table and asked if we had a problem. I told her that my only problem was that they wouldn't give me the side of shrimp and she started yelling at me saying they don't have to do anything not on the menu, etc. etc. I said that I understood that but that but that I really didn't appreciate her being so rude and coming over to interrupt my lunch. I worked in customer service for years and waited tables as well in college so I know how stressful the job can be. She continued to get upset, was mumbling all kinds of things under her breath, giving me dirty looks and stormed off, saying she "has to make a living". The waiter was very nice and apologetic but I could here this crazy woman yelling in the kitchen. She then proceeded to write up the waiter, but I don't know why because he was only telling me what she said.

When the waiter came back to ask me how my food was I told him that the oysters weren't very good and to see if he could get them comped. I didn't realize Maria was the owner at this point and so she comes storming back yelling at me in the dining room saying "Why did you eat them if they weren't good?" and I said, "Because I was hungry!" So she said I ate they oysters so I would have to pay. I figured, "Oh well, worth a shot, I'll just never eat here again." When I went to pay, another man came storming out from the back and started yelling "Do we have a problem here??!" and I said, "Yes we do have a problem, this is the worst I've ever been treated in a restaurant, I was just trying to enjoy my lunch, etc." Then he goes and starts yelling at the waiter and FIRES HIM ON THE SPOT despite myself and several other guests testifying on the waiters behalf. When I told him that it was the woman Maria and not the waiter he started yelling that it was his wife. Meanwhile the whole dining room is watching them act crazy just dumbfounded by the whole thing.

Long story short, while the food is mediocre and inexpensive, the fact that these people are so rude and offensive to their customers and obviously treat their employees terribly and this should be enough to drive them out of business. If they're so concerned with making a living that they can't add a side of shrimp (for a charge!) maybe they should be more concerned with how they treat their customers!

Be prepared to spend about $20 bucks a person, but what you get for your money is completely worth every penny. The food is great and the wait staff is warm and welcoming.

I am amazed that the person below me said, 5 people and spend 100 and consider that pricey? I mean go to McDonald's and I'll understand! but a restaurant???? :-)

I was used to spend with my husband about 100 when we go out to dinner and we are only 2! Not in Safari, here you will not get even close to that price.
We found this place not only amazing but very affordable.

The staff is great and the food is so good! We were so happy we found this place that we did our rehearsal dinner here and everyone enjoyed their food very much.

They have music every Friday and we go every week at least twice (again it is not pricey at all). It has become our 2nd home.

Their wings are delicious and their Ravioli Sa Sa wow!
We have brought all of our friends to eat here and now they are all hooked with this place. I strongly recommend it.

I agree with the previous poster that the food here is great. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Lobster ravioli were delicious and the specials were good too. It is pricey though. For 5 people - we spent $100 even.

The recent addition of live music and dancing has attracted a crowd to Safari Miles on Wednesday nights.
Shagging seems to be the thing to do on Wednesdays and Saturdays, I think some other sort of dancing should also be offered. The dance floor is a little small, however the staff is wonderful. On a recent trip I was approached by management to ensure I was "enjoying my experience". This type of top notch service impressed me. The food was okay, it could be improved.

Safari Miles is a great place to take the family. They have a huge variety of food (steaks, salads, chicken and burgers). It's very casual and laid back. No need to dress up. Highly recommended.

Denver, NC isn't exactly known for it's restaurants, and Safari Miles won't change that. With all the casual dining options available a short drive away in Huntersville, this restaurant needs something to set itself apart. Unfortunately, the food is very average, and hasn't been consistent on the occasions I have dined there. It's an ok place for lunch, but the dinner fare needs a lot of work. This restaurant desperately needs an executive chef to institute some quality controls. A better trained staff is also in order; lack of wine knowledge among the servers and bartenders is painfully obvious, although the extensive martini list is a nice touch.
