Roast beef and mashed potatoes, yum; I love comfort food when it is prepared well. The waiter was great at customer service. He had a really cool watch. He bought it online he said. It gave the time in binary code.

Great Shouthern food. Completely fresh. We ate the fried house chicken and trout. Delicious. Ended with 2 Expressos and a fantastic chocolate cheese cake. Divine! Service immaculated. Perfect attendance - even that we were confortably seated outside on the balcony she kept her attention on my glass and never waited to serve us. Polite and interested in leaving the most... More

We visited as a cozy place for a special dinner. Be sure to try the shrimp and grits, these are so wonderful. The waiter was great as well.

Stopped here for a Sunday lunch. We arrived just as they opened and were seated quickly. All the staff were friendly, and the atmosphere was great. Also, we enjoyed the music which included several Beatles songs. It was nice to have something in between rock and elevator music. After ordering our food arrived and it was lovely. I had the...

We had the best meals here! The food is all made from scratch and you simply must try the Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

Amazing food and great service. Menu was wonderful - had the hardest time deciding on my meal. Atmosphere isn't the best ever but it's not bad by any means. Can't say enough about the food!

Made a special trip there at rec of staff at nearby hotel. It was a slow Thursday night and staff was friendly and helpful. Tried the sweet tea marinated fried chicken...I'm a southern boy, lifelong connoisseur of all things fried, especially chicken. It was interesting, different, and with a distinct undertone of sweet tea. Glad I tried it but decided... More

We asked for a table on the outside patio as it was a nice evening. We were greeted by our enthusiastic server, who explained where items were locally sourced for the menu. We started with the Roasted Quail Breasts with Grits. The quail was very good, but the grits were exceptional and normally we do not eat grits..I ordered the... More

My first impression is that I loved my service, meal, and experience. But I honestly must state that I felt we were rushed out because we had a small child although the website offered a kid menu and we were politely and genuinely given a kids menu. I also admit my meal was good but not worth the money I... More
