Friendly Family Restaurant

Food is always served piping hot and all homemade. Wish they would stay open later in the day, but overall excellent.

While visiting this rather quaint and lovely area, my lady companion and I stopped here for lunch...its was say just after 1:00 p.m. and the waitress was removing the daily special from the window....had a shortage! They close at 2:00 p.m. Here the place may accommodate ~ 26 people. The interior is initially cute, but quite dated. We seated ourselves,... More

We make a point of stopping in for lunch when we are anywhere nearby. The daily specials are so good. Not a fancy place but just good tasting and filling food.

Perfect hometown café - we stopped in for breakfast while traveling through town. All the locals where there talking about the local issues and events - just great - and the food and service hometown perfect.. Right on the waterfront.

Cap'n Rod suggested this restaurant after our tour with him. You can't go wrong with their daily special. The chicken fried chicken was excellent.

Housed in the historic district, this restaurant has a southern diner vibe. One almost expects Andy Taylor to show up. The food was simply and well prepared. It was served efficiently. Many of the locals eat here and it is a good place for local flavor and information. The booth seats are a bit hard. Try a table instead.

This cute place is an absolute throwback to the 30's/40's. The food is simple and genuine low country diner food. Had fried green tomatoes and chicken bog - amazing!

Good solid breakfast fare that's frequented by locals. Located in the heart of the foodie district. Their shrimp and grits are as good as you would hope to be and the have a never empty coffee policy. Well priced and good service.

Nostalgia hits you as you step in (if you are old enough). Featuring home style, generous, servings selected from a chalkboard. We were underwhelmed with the highly acclaimed Key Lime Pie, it's good, not great.
