We loved the location, styling, and wait staff, but the food left us a little 'so-so'. I would like to come back and try some of the other menu items, as clearly there are regulars here. But we found the cornbread to be slightly burned,...More

We brine our fried chicken, smoke our pears, handcraft our soups and visit tailgate markets weekly. We make our own bacon and ketchup, squeeze cases of citrus each week for cocktails and work with other local, small businesses whenever possible. We invite you to join us after work for a casual beer and a burger at the bar, or to bring your beloved or whole family for a unique dining experience. Our menu features a combination of soups, salads and sharing plates as well as hearty entree options so that every dining experience is unique.
