The food was unique and fresh. They had a variety of dishes to please any pallet, but fresh fish specials, and vegetarian as well. Nice win list!

Fantastic local Resturant / Bar 🙂 My wife and I enjoy this Resturant numerous times each year. ( great place for adults. Don't see many children there ) Shrimp & Grits extremely good. Vegetarian option is always great. The atmosphere is laid back with live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

This place hands down is the best BBQ in NC that I've eaten. The put little pieces of crackling on your plate. Good corn bread and slaw. BBQ beans have great taste. I have been several times.

I want to remark at the atmosphere of the starlight cafe. I was at the cusp of a wonderful day of adventure and I sought out this cafe for a quick brunch. As I was flying solo I was seated at a side table by the great glass window in the front. I had a view of the bar tucked... More

I took my family to eat here last night. While the service was good, the food was so-so and over priced. There is no kids menu so you need to make suggestions of what typical kids eat and hope for the best. My child wanted a grilled cheese which arrived burned on both sides. He didn't eat much because he... More

Girls night out, went here for the first time on the regular menu and I've got to tell you I was not impressed. I had been looking forward to their 'Charleston Shrimp and Grits' and I've never been so underwhelmed in my life! The shrimp was so tough I had to cut it with my fork and those were definitely...

We enjoyed the Farm-to-table concept. Great Shrimp&Grits, Oysters Rockefeller. The piano music added a romantic flair. Great location downtown.

This is our local special occasion destination. Shrimp & Grits is awesome. Wish they would put their Jumbalya back on the menu!
