We’ve been here multiple times for happy hour and burgers and the food is good. The mushroom burger, deviled eggs and hush puppies are winners. Our most recent visit was disappointing. The place was packed and they were clearly in the weeds. My son ordered...More

I give it a three and half stars. This place is full of buzz, clearly popular, and very noisy. The acoustics and the table placement made it hard to have a conversation with my dining partner. But the food was fresh, much of it locally...More

Great choice of food and drinks. However, very crowded and noisy. Service was excellent. Mostly southern and seafood. A bit on the expensive side.

The food tastes great and is always fresh. It's kid friendly and has a nice accommodating space outside if you just want to hang and have a few drinks.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner on a Tuesday evening. Great happy hour specials. All of our meals were outstanding, there wasn’t one bite left on any plate on the table. Our server was very nice and attentive. Would recommend to anyone.

I liked the decor, the waitress was pleasant, but the food definitely wasn’t worth the money. I ordered pasta with white clams and I never even had one clam! I did find four pieces of a chopped clam in with my pasta. I also found...More

We chose this place based on the reviews of others on Trip Advisor. We made reservations prior to arriving as we heard that they are always busy. We had excellent service, excellent food. We both had seafood dishes which were delicious, but the people next...More
