This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The service was incredible. I wish we could remember our waitress's name. She had bangs, tattoo, and a nose ring. She was excellent. She was friendly and gave great advice. We got the cheese plate and asked them to pick. They did a great job! The... More

We visited on July 18th, 2016. The atmosphere was very cozy. The food was top notch and our server, Billy, was too. Prices were what you would expect for such a nice restaurant.

From fried chicken livers with grits to fried chicken to caramel praline carrot cake, the food was fantastic. The fried okra was likewise fresh and delicious. As good as the food was it was accompanied by friendly, attentive service. Can't wait to return and consume a few more thousand calories.

We stopped here for we had with us our vegan daughter. Our food (shrimp and grits) was fantastic and her food was amazing. Don't pass on the deserts as they rank right up there with some of the best. Parking was close by at a parking garage and they do validate parking up to 3 hours.

Lovely ambiance. The service was very friendly & knowledgeable. We entered from the mall side & it was a little confusing to get to the restaurant. More signs would have helped. But if you enter through the restaurant main door, it's easy. We started with an excellent bourbon flight. They also has some uncommon scotch choices. Ask the server what... More

Went here for an anniversary dinner and everything was top-notch. Waiter provided excellent service and offered suggestions, recommendations, and answered any questions we had. I ordered the salmon with a side of asparagus. Tasted fresh and delicious. Wish I could eat here every weekend. I also ordered the drink "Public Knowledge". It's the best gin drink I've ever had.

This is a restaurant you should not miss if you love food and are visiting the area. The appetizers, salads, sandwiches are all very good. You can walk from the Choo Choo area or from downtown. Or there is a large parking lot just next door. Enjoy
