After almost everyone we knew ate here and loved it we had to try it. The food was good...pizza was good and different...hand made with crunchy crust. Boiled peanuts for an app that was not only good...but what a great offering...we are in the south after all. So why 1 star? The worst service ever. After we got our food... More

My family usually eats here at least once a week. Good service, tasty food and we love the appetizer you don't see in many restaurants, Boiled Peanuts. With the peanuts my wife and I often order the "Pick Two". Half a sandwich with a full sized salad or a cup of soup (love the tomato bisque).

They've done great since that first visit. The appetizers are also good. Everything is always hot and the staff... More
