Four of us dined here for a late lunch on a Saturday. Three of us ordered the crab cakes, which were more like giant mounds of lump crab meat. Very little filler. I could barely eat half, took the rest home for lunch the next...More

Very pricey. Two guests at the table had ravioli, but 5 pieces? Really? I had the BBQ special and it was average, but a lot of food which I passed along to the guests with 5 ravioli. I wouldn't go again.

Very good crab cake and Cesar salad and rolls. Asparagus is tough. Ice tea is okay but not good southern tea. Restaurant is clean . Service could be better. Will visit again when back in the area.

Yes they do.
One reviewer said two broiled crab cakes were $34.99 - has the price gone up that much?

I ordered the dinner with one crab cake and that was plenty!!
I read in the reviews that there is a liquor store next to the restaurant. Does the liquor store sell wine??
