Very much fun and great food

We went on a Tuesday night and they have buy one get one for their chalkboard specials and they were excellent. It was crowded and we sat at the bar which I would recommend. The bartender was personable and very informative. Great place to sit.

Read the reviews and thought this would be the place to go for my birthday. Was not disappointed. Food was excellent and great atmosphere. Place is small so do make reservations.

The food was amazing, but the service is terribly slow. Eat at the bar the bartender is a better waiter than the waitresses.

Tiny but packs a punch. Make reservations on Monday or Tuesdays to get a gourmet meal at buy 1 get 1. We go every time we are in town. Stuffed filet is always delish

We weren't hungry, so just got a couple appetizers--chowder, fish taco, Maryland crab cake. All were fresh, wonderfully prepared and nicely seasoned. Good and friendly service.

Daughter In Law and I went here to eat after seeing a movie, It was very tasty and fresh! The wait staff was great as well as the food - I had shrimp and grits, she had Crab Cakes - both were excellent! Make sure you leave room for dessert and get the Peanut Butter Pie (its to die for)
