Very overpriced. Tables too close together. Food was outstanding. Crab avacodo salad was delicious. Drinks were so-so.

One of the best filets I have ever had. Great manhatten as well. Service was great without being overbearing. There were 4 in our party and we all enjoyed the variety of food. The shecrab soup was delightful.

We stopped by High Cotton for happy hour on a weekend night. We sat at the bar and didn’t order any food but had a great time with the drinks. We thought the $5 wines was a great deal. We’d definitely be back next time...More
