Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. Friendly staff and wonderful food. Menu changes with the season, they use local produce. Bar staff is very knowledgeable.

Prompt and professional service. Drinks and dinner were delicious. Unbelievable golden beet tartare with toasts and goat cheese. Shrimp and Grits is a must. Generous small plate servings.

You can tell what the restaurant is all about by its name, the menu (which underlines down home Southern & African-American ingredients), and the 60's soul music soundtrack that plays in the background. And the food -- I got the rice and beans with Andouille...More

We believe a meal is as much about the people as it is about the food. From Southern classics to modern flare, we are inspired by the flavors and people of the Carolinas, the Delta, New Orleans and our home town Annapolis, MD. Artfully designed small plates encourage our guests to share a meal as you would at home. Whether a weekend brunch on the garden patio, a family dinner or happy hour with friends, we look forward to sharing our Soul with you.
