We were given a suggestion to dine here by local friends who enjoy eating out here. We went on a Tuesday night around seven or so. It was not terribly busy, as would be expected for a Tuesday night. We were a party of 5, and were seated immediately. Our drink order was taken and promptly returned. What I must say is the service was absolutely top notch. Excellent. Our waiter was one of those rare ones who can make a dining experience really enjoyable. The prices were very reasonable, the portions good. My friend ordered a turkey dinner with cornbread dressing, sweet potato fries and yams. I ordered their signature 3 piece fried chicken dinner (all dark meat, which they accomplished without a fuss or up charge), other party members ordered the chicken strip meal, the fried chicken all white, and the smothered pork chop. We all agreed the yams were wonderful, the cornbread dressing was moist and tasty. Although it did have a spice none of us could recognize. Not a negative by any means. There were two disappointments of note. The fried chicken had a nice crust but NO flavor. It was very bland. The chicken was moist, but a bit greasy for our taste. Some seasoning in the crust would have made the chicken more enjoyable. The Arnie Palmer was really poor. In their favor the certainly did try to make it right. On a positive note, our drink glasses were never empty. We will give it another chance and perhaps things will get better. Next time I am going for the Red Beans over RIce. Oh, they have a very nice outdoor seating area, but in the heat and humidity it was not in use.
