We started with white bean hush puppies. Boy were they good! My friend had a vegan burger which was delicious. And I had a chicken sandwich which was stunning. The food was fresh and healthy. Nice atmosphere, very laid-back. Highly recommend it.

During our visit last year, we loved this place. Very disappointed this time. Very slow service. Good news - peach soup was outstanding! Got the Hillbilly Platter, but didn't get everything that was supposed to come with it - but still paid for it! After...More

Simple but interesting menu that you can easily peruse on-line before visiting. Genuinely hospitable service and attention to diners needs, which is often not the case in establishments that have similar urban hipster vibe: e.g., readily accommodated a simple request that was nonetheless a special...More

You can find wonderful, creative food in this wonderful, unpretentious space. I tried the pork and pone (pulled pork on their corn pone bread) and smoked catfish, on separate occasions. Both produced surprises for the palate: hearty, earthy flavors accented and balanced by sweetness and...More
