This is a relatively new restaurant in Hattiesburg. Atmosphere is laid-back casual, sports-bar type vibe. Food is southern with a twist. Lots of options (including appetizers and sandwiches/salads as well as entrees) at a variety of price points.
The service here was very friendly and attentive. We were served quickly.
My husband and I shared an appetizer recommended by our server, the turnip green bites (deep-fried mosels of turnip greens, bacon and cheese with a breading served with honey mustard remoulade). These were extremely tasty but had been fried a little too long. The outer crust was a daarrrkkk brown as opposed to golden brown and the shell a little hard and tough. We had to cut them open as opposed to biting into them, but the flavor of the filling was smoky and delicious, especially with the sweet/tangy sauce.
My husband's burger was huge (looked like a homemade bun). The hand cut fries (more like potato wedges) were very good.
I ordered the crispy smoked duck salad which was also quite large. It was good but suffered a little in comparison to duck salads I've eaten elsewhere. The spring mix was fresh and there was plenty of blue cheese crumbles and a few carmelized onion strips, but I couldn't find the pecan smoked bacon the menu promises anywhere in there. The crispy smoked duck leg is served whole on top of the salad which was a little surprising (and kind of awkward) The flavor of the meat was good, however. The salad comes with blue vinegarette which sounded good but lacked the sweet/tart tang that is necessary to really do justice to the flavors of a salad like this. The salad came with 3 dry slices of sort-of toasted French bread which added nothing . Serve salad with hot bread and butter or with real homemade croutons or don't bother.
We got there fairly early (around 6) and were home by 7, not bad for a weeknight dinner.
I would eat here again.
