We were asked to join two other couples for a very early dinner on Friday night and arrived at 5pm. Thankfully it was quiet, but the sun, of course, had not yet set, so the sun was flooding onto our table and of six people, only two were not directly in the very bright sun. We all ordered and received the food in a timely manner. Our drinks were also refilled in an appropriate time. I ordered the shrimp and grits with sausage and a sauce/gravy with it. I also had a garden salad. The salad was a very basic "restaurant" salad, the ingredients were fresh, so it was fine. The shrimp was cooked well and tasted good. The grits were okay, up in a mound with the sauce poured over them with the shrimp randomly on top and the andouille sausage cut into little pieces throughout the sauce. This was not a spicy dish, for which I was thankful, but it actually could have used a little kick as it was sort of bland. I thought it was pretty expensive for that and salad - no vegetables with it at all. My husband had the tilapia, salad and green beans. The green beans tasted pretty good. He said the tilapia had too much of a spicy topping and liked the tilapia I cooked at home. We ordered a dessert and split it. We thought the apple with pecan topping cheesecake would be good. Well, we had to search for the apple slices, and it probably was tasty for people who like pecan pie, but I don't care for pecan pie at all, so I only ate two bites & passed to my husband. One couple loved their meal of crab claws, French fries and some shrimp. They like to to go to the restaurant a lot. I don't know what the other couple thought as they were guests of us and the other couple and they didn't share their actual feelings. We left a little before 7pm. Thank goodness as it was getting extremely loud from the bar, the music and people talking very loud to be heard. As we are senior adults, we could not hear each other once the loudness started and the noise really bothered us. We were relieved to leave. Guess younger people enjoy the "honkey tonk" atmosphere.
