Chatham Artillery Punch. ALL delicious. I was in Heaven.... More

Had lunch and the chicken salad was very bland. The chick had no taste and the salad was lifeless. The shrimp and crab bisque was better, but not great. Would not return.

My shrimp & grits was fresh but not at all spicy (which is what I've come to expect). This had maple bacon and it was a completely different... More
