I totally loved this place. They had live music, which was awesome. We were welcomed, greeted & accommodated the moment we walked in and the owner himself even came out from the kitchen to personally greet us. The food was beyond delucious and I was so satisfied that I went back the following day. I had no reservations and they... More

Only one person in our party was satisfied with her meal and partly because she didn't want to complain. As a vegetarian, there were not many options for me (which I knew ahead of time) so after inquiring... More

Very good food and generous portions! Great service!! Our server was very friendly and attentive. If you can, save room for dessert. We'll have to do that next time!

Outstanding from start to finish, we are so glad we happened upon this restaurant. Our server was polite and very efficient. We began with an 3 choice appetizer which included a mexican burrito, fish taco and coconut shrimp. The appetizer was beautifully presented and very good. Our platters consisted of broiled crab cakes for one and fried catfish for the... More

We went with the intention of eating down home southern cooking.The staff made us wait to be seated even though there were tables open.I and my friends are openly LGBT and sat and waited for a drink order to be taken for 30 minutes among grumbles and dirty looks.All of the awkwardness would have been worth it if the food...

Great food. Had breakfast there. Fantastic hash browns. We were going to go back for dinner, but the day got away from us. We were told by another guest that their collard greens were "to die for".

Though the restaurant itself is a little small and simple, the food is the star. We had all the southern comfort foods, including chicken and waffles, cornbread, macaroni and cheese, etc, and it was all totally delicious. Good portions and just awesome!
