Enjoyed lunch on the back deck. The menu had a range of appealing sandwiches. Portion size was just right. I left full but not uncomfortable. Would revisit!

Four very different diners, four very happy diners. She Crab soup, sandwiches, and awesome Shrimp & Grits. Atmosphere, service, food was above our expectations, which were high going in. Potato soup was just okay. Upscale & Reasonable!
