We had breakfast and it was delicious. The best grits I've eaten. Large portion of biscuits and gravy and eggs cooked to order. The coffe was too strong for me and it was not hot. That is my only complaint.

Had breakfast and dinner, good food. The service was very good. The only thing that bothered me was that the banquette seat had crumbs both times I sat down, rather annoying. Would return though, everything else was good.

Food and staff are excellent. The menu selection is imaginative and not the standard fare. Pricing is very reasonable for the quality of food, service, and atmosphere.
