About
Our cuisine can be labeled many things, but it is most definitely seasonal. Our service is professional, yet far from stuffy. Our décor is modern, yet simple, and our wine list is extensive. Perhaps most important of all, everyone from our servers and bartenders, to our chefs and management, are among the most dedicated service industry professionals in our community.

First visit but not the last. Food and service was excellent. Fried green tomatoes, oysters, flounder and salmon with grits were popping hot and delicious. I usually can find something concerning but not this visit.

This is definitely a lovely little spot. The food, and cocktails are delicious. We decided to do a quick dinner for our anniversary this year since we were departing for a Disney vacation the next morning. This was a lovely little spot.
