As visitors from the UK it was great to eat in a restaurant that served local food. The decor is rich and gloomy with a number of private dining rooms. Service was discreet but efficient. Chose Blue Point oysters, country ham and biscuit and fried green tomatoes, all were very good with nice accompaniments. Next, two of us had the Lamb Fries, sheep' s balls deep fried in batter served with mashed potatoes and beans, I had Shrimp and grits, a posh version of grits which were creamy and served with shrimp and sliced peppers. All delicious. Tempted by the desserts we had the pecan and chocolate pie and the chocolate pudding covered with ice cream, we actually ordered the soufflé but never mind. A bottle of Spanish Verdelho and an Australian red were both good value and drank well.
