Just because Gordon Ramsay saved her restaurant, doesn't mean she should charge those prices. She is scaring people away because of her prices. $20 for 8 shrimp is outrageous.

This place is smartly fashioned. The service was on point and the fried chicken was pretty good. The cornbread and sides are plentiful and tasty. The hospitality was truly southern. The manager or owner walked around and made us feel at home.
