The staff is helpful and friendly. Our food was tasty and we didn’t have to wait to be served. Overall, a pleasant dining experience. Pecan pie was yummy.

We stopped at the recommendation of a local tour guide for the seafood gumbo, it was delicious and so fresh. Went a second time to experience the shrimp and grits, which was equally as impressive. Highly recommend.
