Wonderful brunch!

My stepson and I had an awesome Sunday brunch here. The staff was warm and friendly, the atmosphere was laid back and relaxed. I had the pork belly and waffle, which was incredible! My stepson had the half seafood plate that came out fresh and piping hot. I saw a few people next to us having the... read more

Though it is a little hard to find once you walk in it has a quaint quiet atmosphere that'll make you keep coming back. I had a chef salad this time with grilled chicken instead of the Han and turkey that comes with it. They didn't charge me anything exta to replace it so it was a great deal. My... More

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.
