Historic locally owned and on the River front. Started at the bar, good pours, then on to the table for some of the best Shrimp and Grits I have eaten. Service was pleasant and the place was crowded on this Thursday evening. Prices are fair and reasonable.

This is a beautiful restaurant. The food was very good. I had the grilled salmon over Israel couscous. It was cooked to perfection. The wait staff was very friendly and service was great.

Excellent menu selection. Elegant, but not pretentious setting, and great friendly service.The fried shrimp had a nice light breading and was cooked perfectly. The fried chicken was good but a little tough. Crawfish beignets were very flavorful.

If you are a Shrimp and Grits fan, this is the place. Always great food, biscuits and good service. Been here twice and a third is in the cards. Great water views and fine lunch dining. Good wine list!

Stopped in to get some coffee and a snack. Staff was so friendly and informative. There are tables to sit and the atmosphere is beautiful and relaxing . They had a young man there playing guitar and singing and he was great. Would definitely recommend to stop in. They have restaurant there as well
