ribs were good

Mr. Green was very nice, friendly, sincere. He was the only person serving, waiting tables, cooking, so service was kind of slow. But we weren't in a hurry. I got small bowl of shrimp gumbo, and that's what it was - small for the price. It was good, but I have had better. My husband got the... read more

A very nice environment for local special foods. The host/server was very attentive and very welcoming. Really enjoyed the meal.

We were the only patrons in the restaurant at the time of our super-great lunch. Our waitress was totally focused on us, and so was Mr.Green, the owner/creator chef...but not too much...just enough to make you feel like your business was appreciated. Since it was "black friday" in the retail world, I'm sure they were happy to see us there... More

The worst service we've ever had and lousy food, to boot! Our server finally took our order, disappeared and then came back 10 minutes later to say she had forgotten what we wanted and started all over. We were served stale corn bread and when the food finally arrived, my shrimp dish had maybe two shrimp. We'll never go back!!

I did not enjoy it at all. We were the only people there and I know why after I tasted the food. I had the ribs and potato salad. No idea why it's called gullah food as it was nothing special.

No atmosphere! Felt like a funeral home! Food was not anything special! The red rice could have given you a concussion if thrown at a wedding!

We stopped in for lunch. Make sure you have plenty of time, but the food is worth the wait! They may also be out of certain items based on what the big seller was the day before.

If you are looking for ambiance and white table cloths, this is not the place. If you are look for good tasting food at a veryresonable price with the hstory of the Gullah people of the island it is an interesting place to stop. No bar or cocktails here.

We took my birthday trip to Beaufort, SC specifically to learn more about the Gullah culture and cuisine. We had eaten a large breakfast, so really only wanted a snack . We had a sample of the wonderful cornbread with our drinks before we ordered. Bill Green, the owner, was being interviewed by a news reporter while we were there.... More

We should have ordered a second bowl of soup because we both loved it...seasoned perfectly! The ribs were also very tasty. I'd order both again!. The cobbler was heavy, but with 2 of us eating it, that was OK. Service was spotty. When we were done eating no one seemed to notice. But in a "homey" place like this, it... More
