Dinner was good . Service a little slow. Several larger groups seated in same room made it quite noisy. Food OK, not great. Pasta dish a bit salty and very starchy.which may be result of pasta being homemade. Acknowledged our anniversary, which was nice.

This is an excellent modern American food with Southern influences and great decor and atmosphere. Service was excellent, and we loved the fried green tomatoes and the grits. Also, very reasonably priced, particularly when compared to DC.

Definitely try the Crab Bisque which is one of the standard menu items. There's not much here for those looking to eat fewer calories. We liked the basket of bread you are served while waiting for the entrees. The yeast biscuits are delicious!
