Our first visit as we were attending my wife's high school reunion. Food was excellent. Place is clean. Very crowded on weekends. Music was live. I tried the grilled shrimp and baked grits. It was very good. Will go back in a heart beat.

I reserved a table for 12 for Sunday evening (you must reserve a day in advance). We had a great server, everyone was happy with their food. The shrimp and grits are amazing and the drinks served cold.
