The fried Catfish was great too. The portions were large so we could take 1/2 home for another meal. We didn't order it but there were lots... More

So, we virtually had the place to ourselves. First, the service was quite good; wait staff was very attentive and very flexible and accomodating to special requests.... More

This restaurant is awesome very friendly staff. And AMAZING FOOD. Pricing was beyond reasonable. I payed $90 for room service breakfast at the hotel. And it sucked. $45 here for dinner for two and I had so much food I had to carry out. THIS PLACE IS A MUST!!!

I'd heard about this place for a while. Not as good as I expected; however, not bad. We had Fried Chicken, Fried Catfish, Mac and Cheese, BBQ Brisket, Collard Greens, Sweet Potatoes and Cabbage. The Uptown (aka Arnold Palmer) was excellent.
