Our Southern dishes and libations are served with a creative twist and a smile, and we serve our guests nothing that we wouldn't want on our own supper table. When we play with our food (and we think it's okay), the result is scrumptious. We're rooted in the Mountain South, and our menu is inspired by time-honored traditions: pickling and frying, canning and preserving, and utilizing seasonal produce and ingredients to prepare delicious, scratch-made creations.

That is a good idea. I noticed that the restaurant seems to be often crowded: that is a risky proposition, since small mistakes can multiply and a cranky employee can impact on many clients. My suggestion is to visit the... More
