Very good menu selection. The bacon & hot honey mustard dressing is fantastic. She crab soup is very good.

Local recommendation for a quick lunch and it fit the bill. Plenty of options on the menu and staff was friendly. My order wasn't quite right but their strong wifi made up for it!

If you want authentic she crab soup without driving to coastal GA or SC, come here. The bowl is huge. Pair it with a side of their honey croissants, and you have a filling meal for around $10. Regardless of what you order, make sure to get the honey drizzled croissants! Just off I-85 at exit 109, but difficult to... More

We were impressed with the size of this place; huge! The food was OK, but nothing special. I will however rave over the salad they served with the honey roll. The Knob chick was somewhat dry and I had wished I chose something else. Nice visit, but I won't rush bac!

It was my birthday and I was dreaming about a nice rack of baby back ribs. They do a lot of things well here at CD but the ribs are consistently good. My wife and I each ordered a single rack. They come with a salad. The default dressing is an amazing warm bacon-honey-mustard delight. Do not change your dressing... More

This is usually my go to for business lunches. but you can not get in and out within 1 hour. Their salads are good as well as their sandwiches, their fish is good sometimes not always. But the service staff need to get a spring in their step!

CD was always one of my favorite places. The food's quality and quantity were perfect. I've dined at the one in Duluth and the one in Greenville, SC. The one in Duluth was so much better. Nevertheless, two friends and myself decided to go to lunch last week. Because the portions are so big, we decided to order one seafood... More
