The food was delicious and the singer playing that night was wonderful. Shrimp and Grits were very good. Nice selection of food to tailor to anybody.

Cozy, and cute describes the inside. Delicious and creative describes the food! Wait staff were very knowledgable and a little short, but that didn't matter. The food delivered, and spoke for itself.

We ate the Turtle Chowder. The turtles were farmed, not protected and tasted good especially with the Ghost pepper sherry sauce. Rib portions were huge and the Blueberry martini was good.
