Very eclectic variety of menu items. The staff is mostly attentive. Best if you go on a night that it's not too crowded for best service.

I have to agree with TPWEsq. The New South Brussels Sprouts are FABULOUS! Dinner was great, too. It's a nice little restaurant, casual, but offers high quality food. Just a short walk from where we were staying at the Fort Conde Inn.

The Rack of Lamb dinner was off the chart delicious! Served with roasted fingerling potatoes, sautéed kale, and a dill tzatziki feta spread. Truly amazing meal. The New South Brussells Sprouts are a great appetizer than can be shared also. Highly Recommend.
