We stopped here for a quick lunch while exploring Georgetown. The restaurant is on Front Street and serves freshly made breakfast and lunch. The staff was friendly and our sandwiches were fresh. Prices were reasonable. It had a homey atmosphere - we'd definitely go back if in the area.

We had great lunch. Sandwiches were made with pride. We had a crab cake sandwich and a club sandwich. Both were excellent. The roll was toasted and warm. The crab cake freshly made. Highly recommended. Very reasonable prices.

Nice stop along the way between Charleston and Myrtle Beach. Service was friendly, but a little slow. Past the lunch hour and almost all the tables were taken. I had the crab cake sandwich with potato salad. Crab cake was delicious, good portion, reasonably priced. The sweet tea was not overly sweet.

OK, we walked through the door at 9:10 and our food arrived at the table at 9:50 and no, it wasn't crowded. A lot of takeout orders we were told. My breakfast was very good, just eggs, sausage and grits but my wife didn't like hers much, French toast. Price was very reasonable. I would return but not if I... More

We stopped here for lunch before an afternoon boat tour. Loved it! There were only a few of us non-locals. Everyone knew everyone and stopped to catch up with each other. We both had the club sandwich with potato salad, which was tasty and as expected. Specials included low country fare. Atmosphere was certainly not fancy, but comfortable.
