We stayed overnight nearby and found this restaurant while walking along the historic streets. We ordered the Tile Fish which neither of us had ever tried and were very happy with the the fish and preparation. We also ate the pork spring rolls which were light and flaky with delicious pulled pork. We came here rather late in the evening... More

Most amazing food on the island! The service is crazy good as well. You have to have their signature pork chop there is nothing like it. Thanks so much Dave.

All the food on the menu is local and great tasting. The pulled pork sandwich with roasted shallots, apple compote and napa slaw was delicious!

This restaurant is in an old home, it has a small dining area inside and a few tables on the porch. My suggestion is to make reservations. We use Open Table for 5:30 when they open. Got there at 5:15 and there were already several couples waiting. By the time they opened the front porch and sidewalk was full of... More

Food was inventive, fresh/local, well prepared and moderately priced. We tried the scallops, tomato basil soup, grilled romaine salad, fried green tomatoes, bruschetta small plate, chocolate flourless case, and the sinful doughnut bread pudding. All amazing!

The food and service were excellent especially the shrimp and grits! As one who loves shrimp and grits, this ranked among the best.

We went to this restaurant on the advice of our daughter. We were seated promptly, given menus and asked for a drink order. We weren't ready so asked for a minute. One turned into twenty and we had to ask another server to tell ours we were ready. Meantime the couple seated after us were enjoying a beer and had... More

Bob, our waiter gets it. He knew the food, wine and what we would like. Enjoyed a nice bottle of Malbec (Proemio) and the charcuterie to start. Then the short ribs and fried chicken. Both were very tasty. The lack of a full bar and sitting outside (beware of the mosquitos) was a shortfall, but overall, the experience was enjoyable!

Completely by chance we found this restaurant and without reservations we were treated with friendly courtesy. We had a lovely table on the porch. The service was warm and friendly without being patronising or false. The menu is diverse and compelling. The food was beautiful in presentation and perfectly cooked. The meals were delicious. Desert was Peach Pie with ice... More
