This is a small place with an intimate atmosphere, great service and outstanding food. The shrimp and grits were especially tasty. Service was exemplary - very attentive, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The bar was great, too - nice selection of premium liquors.

The food was really good. It was truly a dining experience. I wish we had a reservation to sit in the dining room. That however did not take away from our night. Be prepared to spend a bit for the dinner.

Yes, children are welcome in our dining room! We do not have a set kids menu but our chef is happy to put together kid-friendly options from our farm to table ingredients.

I would say the normal dress code would be "smart casual." On rare occasions, might see shorts, but the more likely variation would be sport coats, sans ties.
