Food was good to very good, ambience was rustic. Unfortunately had group of loud diners near us. Server was attentive but seemed disinterested which was unfortunate considering it was off season. Would go back but others in area which are more appealing.

We would not have stopped here if it were not for TripAdvisor. What a delightful find! Service was pleasant and food was delicious. I had the blackened catfish sandwich and my friend had the shrimp and grits, both were great! I would totally recommend. Great local establishment.

Small and intimate. No reservations. Had great food. I had scallops as an appetizer and then nice, medium-rare duck breast. All our entrees were well prepared. Good service. Wine is priced a little high, though.
