Started with the corn shrimp crab crowder was excellent. Warm loaf of fresh bread and butter that you could spread not hard as a brick like most restaurants. Shrimp and grits also excellent. Ice tea very good and very good service. Would highly recommend.

The atmosphere was very nice and the lighting of the bar is really neat. Very comfortable seating. Food was good but a bit bland. The staff was very nice, helpful, and informative about the menu options.
