Southern fare done with a fine dining wash s what’s up here. Baseball shirts and doors everywhere with old factory decor whitewashed. The tomato’s caprese was different and fried pimento cheese wow. The rolls were a must but stingy on the jam. The shrimp and...grits were OK with chewy grits and an herb we could not define? The decaf coffee done in town was the best I have had. The French press was the star of the meal.More

Be prepared to spend, but it will be worth it. Everything I ate was wonderfully prepared. I had the strawberry mint drink, biscuits, and U-10 scallops - all superb. If you’re into huge portions, this may not be the place for you.

This southern table restaurant was a pleasant find in Columbus, GA. The service was on-point. My scallops were prepared and served just the way I like them. My son enjoyed a huge wet-cured steak, which was delicious. The shabby chic decor was a little clumsy,...and sitting on sheet metal chairs got old after a while, but those were minor detractors to a very good dinner.More

We began our meal with a drink. The other couple we were with had dined at the restaurant previously and ordered a smoked drink. It was served in a box. When the box was opened a beautiful cloud of smoke surrounded the drink creating a...very dramatic effect. We split an appetizer of biscuits and apple butter, mushrooms soup and bib salad. The mushroom soup was superb, and the biscuits were light and fluffy. The true star of the evening was my red snapper. It was so light and delicate served with a couple of brussel sprouts and carrots. It was cooked to perfection and was delicious! My husband's scallop dinner left him hungry and wanting more as the portion size was small. The crust on the banana foster cheesecake was amazing but difficult to cut through, and the chocolate Grand Marnier cream brulee was lackluster. The restaurant has lots of ambience with all of the cotton decor. It is located in an old cotton factory. Servers wore masks and there is outdoor dining availability.More

We ordered our meals to go and ate them in our hotel room, but you could just as well eat by the outdoor fire pit if you don't want to eat in a restaurant. We had shrimp and grits (shrimp were a little small), mussels...with a great great sauce, biscuits with chicken legs which were good. Bibb lettuce with dried cherries and nuts which was good.More

We were walking past the restaurant and stopped to real the menu. Couple came out and started to chat with us. Turned out it was the folks that own the restaurant. Can't remember if the husband or wife was the chef, but all that matters...is they were very gracious and inviting. Decided to go there for dinner that night. At first only my wife and I along with daughter in law and grandson were going to dine. At last minute, grandson's girlfriend and her parents decided to join us. Even though the restaurant was fully booked with several waiting, they were able to accomodate our party without an issue. Our server Michelle was spot on with everything. Owners came out to say hello (they remembered meeting us earlir) and when they found out our grandson's girlfriends father was a high ranking officer at nearby Ft. Benning, well, we were treated like royalty. Table enjoyed biscuits, Southern Caprese salad, fried okra, chicken burger, chicken and waffles, salmon, filet, scallops, some great Chianti and a couple of the bestsmoked pecan old fashions I have ever had. HIGHLY recommended for a great meal, supurb service and people that truly appreciate your business and know the meaning of Southern hospitality.More

This is our second visit and we were equally impressed this time as well. We had another couple with us and it was their first time. They were impressed. The menu options and specials lend itself to a pleasant variety of choices. Something for everyone....We started with the grilled green tomatoes with fried pimento cheese and the biscuits Both were excellent. We shared a bay salad the was delicious. A fun mix of greens, apples and an awesome dressing. I had the bone in pork chop with apple chutney that was one of the best pieces of pork I have ever had. Two had the shrimp an grits, and another the salmon. None of us were disappointed with the preparation and the taste. The décor and service were great, and the restaurant was hopping. I highly recommend this for a dining experience. And, the prices were not at all outrageous.More

Drove an 1 1/2 hours to come here for dinner. “Wow “ we will be back! The screaming mussels were fantastic and the steak was so tender. The salmon was great as well. But I’m looking forward to the banana foster cheesecake.

Hubby and I came in for dinner on our first night in Georgia. This restaurant did not disappoint. Only here for 5 days and may make another stop before heading back home. The watermelon salad, pork chop, grits, grouper, and service were phenomenal.

I just came back from eating out on the patio at 11th and Bay. I had a cocktail called smoked pecan old fashioned which was delivered dramatically to our table in a box which when opened dispersed the smoke from the wood. The cocktail was...strong and good. We ordered the smoked chicken legs and tomato salad as appetizers. Both were scrumptious. I would order these two items for my main the next time. My entree was scallops served over a celery root purée. I have never had the purée before but it was creamy and smooth almost like mashed cauliflower. I will definitely get that again as well. For desert we had the Lemon creme brûlée which was creamy without being too sweet. Yummy. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The chef came by briefly checking on each patron to make sure everything was okay. I look forward to our next visit.More

You do have to wear shoes, and acceptable clothing..I’m sure bathing suits or extremely bare skin wouldn’t be appreciated
