Lively Green has made a very popular theme for restaurants and coffee shops and this is it, HG Restaurant.

This is High Grove Restaurant, from Lively Green, with just about 1000 downloads so far and a somewhat low rating of 3.72 stars, it’s a mixed bag for crafting a winning restaurant website.  But that’s okay, a high rating isn’t everything, but it does help.  Let’s have a look at the introduction by LivelyGreen.

Our theme is designed to be simple to use, intuitive and powerful, and most importantly business orientated. Packed with everything you need to launch your restaurant site in 5 easy steps! Attractive board of events, modern looking menus, customizable table reservation, and all-purpose Revolution Slider are just a few of many features and plugins bundled in – all within a single integrated interface.  Simply perfect for you restaurant, bakery, coffee shop or winery!

I like the simple, clean design of High Grove, it’s got an attractive layout, I’d have to say.  They say you don’t need to just capture somebody’s attention, you have to maintain it.  That’s what High Grove aims to do and I think it succeeds.  High Grove is certainly a theme where you’ll need a great looking set of images, so if you don’t have your own photographer, you’ll need to go somewhere like iStockPhoto to get some high quality images.

Okay, hold your nose ’cause here goes the cold water. This theme isn’t well supported anymore.  Over a year of questions remain unanswered on ThemeForest’s comments section.

Here’s a fun exchange.

Hi, I bought this template, but the Slider revolution plugin is missing. Without this plugin, the website doesnt look like at all to the demo. Please can you answer me please and help me resolving this problem quickly, I’ts kind of urgent.

@florie32 Too bad for you bro, Theme author haven’t update this theme since last year. Also They dont response anymore maybe they abandoned this theme

@xhellbornx Yeah I’m seing that too late. Anyway, I do not recommend this template, it is very complicated to use. Thankfully I know a little how to code, but it’s not made for novices.

By fun, I mean depressing as hell.  It sucks to buy a theme and not get support for it.

Well, on to the next schmoe who flows…
