The menu offers a small selection of entrees, but the items should appeal to most people. Portion sizes are appropriate (lunch and dinner), and the dishes are creative and tasty! Servers are accommodating and friendly, and even during busy hours the service and food delivery...More

Lunch is not as good as night menu. At night, this is a great place to eat. Have returned several times.

Nice cozy (small) place. Didn't have to wait for a table and we went on a Saturday evening (late). Waiter was super nice, but he was pretty busy flirting with the table of ladies next to us. Had to wait on refills multiple times, but...More

This is a pretty unique restaurant. As the name implies they specialize in everything sweet potato. The fried chicken was very good and their house sauce on the side adds a nice kick. My only complaint is the biscuits were too dry.

Lunchtime, hectic crazy busy, but staff very warm and attentive. Each member of the party thoroughly enjoyed their choices: fried green tomato BLT, fried bologna sandwich with pimento cheese and of course fried oyster salad. Worth the wait and fed my food soul.

If they have one I didn't see nor asked for it. I feel they would accommodate you the best they could. They were very attentive to us and other patrons in restaurant.
