Nice atmosphere and Crab Cakes were excellent. Not a lot of breading and loaded with crab meat, I highly recommend. No draft beer, but did have local bottled beers. A little higher price range around the $25 range per person.

We went with friends for dinner and were not that pleased with our food. We had meatloaf and the presentation was not good. Everything was piled on a small plate and did not look appetizing, more like a cafeteria. The meatloaf was nothing to rave about. We did love the bread and service was good. Not sure if we will...

We were all happy with our lunch choices - Caesar salad, chicken sandwich, turkey sandwich and salmon sandwich. There was no wait and service was prompt.

Our visit here was a fabulous experience. Food was to die for. We had brunch here with a party of six. Charles was the bartender who decided to serve us himself in a banquet room as the restaurant was busy. Great service. Will go back. I would rate higher if I could!

For lunch, I had the salmon salad and subbed the dressing for the roasted pecan vinegarette. It was delicious. The salmon was well seasoned and I will order that again.

Let me start by saying that the parking lot in front of the restaurant is expensive...find somewhere else to park if you are on a budget. Seated quickly and had shrimp and grits with cocktails. Small cinnamon rolls (donuts) were served with strawberry butter. Yummy and smaller type portions.
