Friendly Staff, Great Food

We have been here a few times and the staff has always been courteous, efficient and knowledgeable. On our last trip, we took our servers advice and tried the fried green tomatos, which I had not had before -- excellent, would definitely recommend.

We were a party of nine and had made reservations in advance. We arrived and were seated immediately. They have a great offering of beverages, very interesting martini selection, the PAMA Flirtini was very tasty. We skipped appetizers. We had nine entrees ranging from burgers to Filet Mignon with crab cakes, Shrimp & Grits, Pork Tenderloin, Fried Chicken, Chicken breast,... More

Even with a table of 12, we found the service and food to be very good. We ordered at least 8 different appetizers and left nothing remaking. My favorite was the sweet potato croquette. All of the entrees came out timely and without issues. Steaks to salads all were given high marks. The sweet tea chicken was flavorful and moist.... More

Quite a nice selection on the menu and wonderful salads. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. I wasn't too impressed with the crust on the chicken pot pie, but the salad with strawberries and pecans was excellent.

I have dropped down from very good to average for two reasons. I have had some very good meals here, but the last couple of times the filet mignon hasn't been very good. Second is that I have now used the ladies restroom here...sorry, but restrooms are important and show that the restaurant cares about cleanliness and cares about their... More

I have been here a few times now and can recommend this restaurant. They have a nice little brick enclosed patio with a fireplace, making it a pleasing spot to dine. The interior ambience is pleasant without being particularly noteworthy. I have had the blt with green fried tomatoes, shrimp and grits (with grit cake rather than grits) and the... More

Walking up and seeing all the quirky decor on the outside I knew this place was going to be for me. Everyone was so nice and the inside decor was even better. Had a wonderful waitress and the food was excellent. This is a definite go back to place to eat and try all their food. The prices were comparable... More
