We found this by other reviews. This was a nice restaurant in an old house in a neighborhood. I had the seafood stew and it was very good. The other dinner was fried catfish with okra.

The line was intimidating but it wasn't so bad. They have water available and a coffee window for the waiting guests. It didn't seem like we waited too long. It was worth it regardless. We sat inside by the front door and our waiter Travis was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had the Fried Green Tomatoes and grits. It was... More
