O very good choice

Very very nice food. I was there with my husband and two sons and we all enjoyed our meal (dinner). We had Fried Oyster and Cajun Game Hen- deep fried with garlic mash and vegetables.

We had dinner here after a long day on the road and found it to be very welcoming and well worth our visit. Hospitable and friendly, accommodated us even though they were busy and we did not have a reservation. Great steak, great salmon.

Careful, you might drive right by this amazing restaurant - go slow! It's located above a few indoor shops and has a small sign in the window. The food is amazing! Not overly seasoned. We had a Lettuce Wedge with Bleu Cheese dressing and Catfish with pecan sauce, served with very creamy mashed potatoes, and bright green broccoli. Too full... More

A wide variety on the menu and the steak I ordered was very good. Excellent wait staff. Nice wine and beer list. Dessert list was surprisingly short; good, but not many items. The room was comfortable.
