First visit to the establishment. Food was good, however for the price may have chosen another fine restaurant in town

From the crab appetizer, which was tasty and full of crab, to the delicious shrimp and grits with red wine sauce to the perfectly grilled ribeye...everything was delicious. Service and atmosphere we're top notch. Highly recommend!!

Went with relatives from the area who knew about this relatively new restaurant. Very attentive staff and although a limited menu, the food ordered was delicious and carefully prepared. They are a cut above most local places and they aim to please.
