Old valdosta downtown quaint, but not small, restaurant. Always love the food, changing menu, but even picky eaters enjoy. Great takes on southern favorites and bound to make some of their own.

I have never done a 5-star review. But this place was unavoidable!! There was nothing bad from the drinks to the atmosphere to the food it was fantastic. If you are near and it is open GO!! You will regret it if you don't.

This restaurant has a neat rooftop bar which is unique to Valdosta. Food is tasty and drink menu is creative however, the beer could be colder. Definitely worth trying!

We drove up to Valdosta and were given a tip about this place. It was a little hard to find even in this tiny downtown as the shop-front is tiny and the sign even smaller but there are big things behind those doors! This place reminded us of the fine dining in Jackson Hole WY. I love duck and this... More

My wife always finds that out of the way special place to eat where ever we go. This was one of my favorites. I had the scallops and she had the chicken confit and they were both amazing. If you are traveling on 75 then make plans to be near Valdosta at dinner time. I promise it will be the... More

Food was very good, service a little slow since we were in after 1pm, but overall a very good experience for all. Burgers especially good as is the sweet potato fries. Grouper sandwich is a little lite.

I have been to this restaurant twice now, and it is definitely a good one to go to. I ordered the fried green tomato sandwich on my first trip. It was very tasty, but the truffle fries absolutely took the cake! They are addicting. I have also ordered their shrimp and grits. They were full of flavor and very rich,... More

First thing that hit me was the music. Southern Rock, Roots Music, Alt-Country mixed very well. I had on SoundHound the whole time checking titles. Now for the food: it can be a bit much all this extra-southerness and juxtapositions of things your grandmother never thought of doing. The crisp duck appetizer was excellent and since I'm originally from Lakeland,... More
