We had the baked boursin cheese-Memphis Jam Bake that was out of this world. Shrimp & Grits were excellent. The River City Chicken Pasta was also well prepared. Great service and the wait was not that long on a Saturday night. Great drinks- try the Mules.....

I treated my Mom for her Birthday and we had a great steak. This is one of the best steaks in town and the rewards program will keep you coming back! They also have a nice wine selection.
