We had two entrees plus appetizer and two alcoholic drinks for under 50$. It may not be fine dining but the service was excellent, the food was great (ribs and shrimp and grits) and the staff were very friendly. Highly recommended for anyone stopping over.

I really don't know. It's not really a burger and sandwich kind of place. I had crab cakes and my husband had prime rib and it was delicious.
