I said checked "one of the best meals in my life" .. for American or European food. I'm not comparing to Ethiopian or Vietnamese which I love too.
I have lived less than 10 minutes from this place for over 20 years. The first time I went to it was Mother's Day. I had heard it was really good, but I usually choose ethnic food over American/European food, so I had never been there.
My Mother-in-law wanted to take us and her grandchild and her family to dinner somewhere near us on Mother's Day. I knew Parkway Deli (which is not half as nice as this place) would be crowded. We called "Mrs. K's Toll House" to see if there were any reservations left (4 days before Mother's Day) and there were not. I remembered this nondescript place in the Kemp Mill Shopping Center that has been rated very highly. I chose an off-time on Sunday and we were able to get in.
This place is better than most of the restaurants above it. Much better than Parkway Deli, they are not even in the same category. And the food is much better than Mrs. K's Toll House. What Mrs. K's has over Nova Europa is that they are on a busy road and hidden away in a small shopping center.
Our party really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service. I think the last time I had that kind of service was on a cruise ship in the main dining room. My MIL loved the place, In our party we had fish of the day (mmm-mine), Jumbo Shrimp stuffed with crabmeat and Portuguese Steak, Filet Mignon and Pasta of the Day (ravioli). Everyone loved their dish. The meal came with rolls and a salad and they were not side orders. You could order appetizers, but I'm not sure where you could put the food because we were so full.
The desserts looked yummy, but no one had enough room to order dessert. This restaurant deserves to be rated way better than 23/317 as it was the day I reviewed it.
Do not let the outside of the restaurant in a shopping mall make you think this is not an excellent place. It is a hidden gem.
