Excellent food and attentive waitstaff. We started with fired okra which was excellent. My husband ordered the country fried steak and I chose one of the specials ... Snapper served with crab & asparagus salad over polenta. Both dishes were perfectly prepared. We had a table looking out over the street. It was well worth walking there in the rain.

I just ate at Virginia’s tonight and was thoroughly impressed. I had an appetizer, salad and entree. All were excellent. They serve locally grown southern food and they do it extremely well. The peach bbq slices that came with the pork chop were particularly good. The menu is varied and temptingly interesting. All this and very accommodating service! I can’t... More

The ambience is nice and location right on a... More

We were staying just down the block from here and it seemed like a good place to try out breakfast one morning and we were right. We went first thing on a Tuesday morning and there was only one server, so by the time there were more people in there, he was definitely keeping busy. The food was fresh and... More

We went here for lunch after a tour of Fort Sumter. This was on the advice of our friends for the shrimp and grits. We had those and the fried pickles.The food was fine. I wish there was more sausage with the grits. I liked the sausage. Service was adequate but seemed as if they had other things on their... More

I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT, sweet potato fries and cole slaw. Fried Green tomatoes are awesome, could use a little more bacon on the BLT in my opinion.

I ordered fried green tomatoes and shrimp; My husband had blueberry pancakes and bacon: we were both happy! Good strong coffee helped wake us up for the day. Doesn't get any better than that!

With guests in town frequently, we try to provide different options for a well-rounded introduction to southern cuisine. After many meals at Blossom, Magnolias, SNOB, Oak, McCrady's and the like, we tried to mix it up and take our guests somewhere new. Big mistake. Appetizers...our friends ordered fried pickles. The sauce wasn't memorable. The pickles fell out of the fried... More
