We dined there on Sat 2/2/19 and had a great meal. The full sized portion of the Shrimp and Grits was both a good amount of food and very good. Our party also had the filet which was perfectly cooked. I highly recommend Alligator Soul.

Business Casual or Smart Casual. Alligator Soul is a frequent meeting place for clients and special occasion diners and the attire tends to reflect it.
