First time visit and decided on Saturday brunch

I got the Scrambled Egg and Cheese Po Boy with grits, she got the Fried Kurios Farm Green Tomatoes with Pimento... read more

The tastiest shrimp po' boy I have ever eaten. Local shrimp are salted and battered just right. Rummolade sauce is just right. Try it with a slice of cold, local watermelon. The homemade chocolate pudding is the perfect ending.

We had a fantastic experience. The wait staff were helpful and friendly and the food was amazing. The menu has a good variety to choose from. I had a salad, grits and collards that were absolutely delicious. My friends had the pork chops and fresh local fish that were also very good. Would return and would not hesitate to recommend...

We went on a night when fried chicken was the featured special. Apparently they were nearly out of chicken as the server indicated it was questionable as to why here we could still get chicken at the time. It wasn't all that late in the evening though & we did receive our order. But the chicken wasn't all that great... More

This place always gets a good rep for using the freshest ingredients, and its deserved. Daily blue plate,lots of choices for sandwiches and other entrée choices like mountain trout. They have beer and wine, and wines are all picked for being from sustainable, organic sources. Peppermint ice cream is unbelievable, the best peppermint anything I have ever had. Also enjoyed...

This place is fantastic. Nothing fancy, but real food that will leave you licking the plate! Lots of choices, and everything super well prepared with good ingredients that are local, and the highest quality. Service is friendly.

I had a clam po boy. It was delish. I also had deviled eggs, which looked different than the relish filled ones I'm used too. Nice atmosphere. If you like peanut butter pie- there's is rich and delish!

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to Fort Sumter. Takes about 15 minutes to get here from Liberty Square. For lunch, they have a variety of apps, sandwiches, plates and desserts along with an interesting soda selection. You must try the spicy Blenheim ginger-ale-- truly different and refreshing. I had the beef/ pork meatloaf with the butterbeans and... More

Was recommended by a friend and was wowed by this places food. Certainly not a fancy place but the food was outstanding! They have a different food menu everyday, kind of unusual. They also have fried chicken sometimes but have to call the day before and reserve yours, so I would call and ask if they have any specials going... More

Friendly service and great food. Extremely fresh. Nice thing is they are very flexible and will accommodate for any preference. My cousin is a vegetarian and was very satisfied with her choices. Visiting from Delaware I would highly recommend checking out.
