I recently had dinner here with my husband and was pleasantly surprised by this jewel of a sandwich. Two thick slabs of pork belly underneath hot, melted creamy brie,a perfectly cooked fried egg, crispy onions, and strawberry preserves! I asked my server (Sandra) about the pork belly, and she informed me that it was prepared in house, as the bacon... More

We go here all the time. The shrimp and grits are the best. They have homemade cheese biscuits that are so good. If you have been here yet you need to try it out.

Food was mediocre at best, way over priced. I had their fried buffalo chicken sandwich, I'd rather go to chic-fil-a. Don't waste your time.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. We had heard good things and were pleased with our meal. We started with fried tomatoes which were excellent though the portion was small. She had a flounder sandwich and fries which she said was tasty. I had a cheese burger with sweet potato fries both had lots... More

We had a group of folks visit for lunch, we called our order in ahead as we had a group of 9 folks. The orders ranged from Salads, to Chicken, etc. It was great! The service was good, and we left very satisfied. I would go again!

had rather average experiences on both of my visits to simply southern. The food is good but pricey and I always find myself thinking "mediocre". I think it's good food but for what it is it is way overpriced. The best thing ordered between the people in the group I went with was the prime rib.

First off, I know the owner through a prior work connection. He and his lovely wife, Gail, do a very nice job hosting, at the front of the house. Wayne's son, Jeff, is an excellent chef. The food is uniquely representative of low country South Carolina cooking. It's worth breaking "the chain habit"! Give it a try, for lunch or... More

We had dinner here recently and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. The restaurant itself is very simple, in a small plaza off a main road. We shared a special appetizer of pimento biscuits with ham and cheese that was perfect. Entrees can be ordered in half of full portions, and luckily we ordered half portions and... More
