I'm trying to find a nice-ish restaurant, "American" food, near Gastonia, NC. Near = 15 minute drive, 20 max. My family is going to take out an elderly aunt for her birthday and we're new to the area and don't know of any places. Searches haven't turned anything up. The elderly aunt will need food not far out of her comfort zone and she's not going to want to go into the city.
A good looking restaurant, something with tablecloths (or that at least suggests that style) would be great since it's a birthday dinner.
We prefer not to go to chains but will if that's the only choice!
PS. Birthday dinner is this coming Saturday.
