We tried this place because it was close to where we were staying. This was unexpectedly amazing. The wine pours are generous but the food overtook the event. Mind you, we aren’t from the south so the chicken with mashed potatoes was incredible. The scallops...More

Fish and chips were delicious. Made with salmon and the chips were really chips homemade and very good! Beet and orange salad was very good! Service was great!

On my first visit, I was impressed. Nicely appointed. Bar upstairs, dining room downstairs. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. I had the blackened scallops. They were done quite well. Someone actually paid attention to this dish. The scallops were browned on top, seasoned well...More

This was a wonderful experience; we had delicious meals (I had the lamb, my husband had the filet), we were introduced to a new, and incredibly tasty Spanish wine, and perfect cupcakes. Jason made our evening extra-special with his serving hospitality and charm. Slate Street...More

Wow! Was very impressed with the bruschetta varieties—many of which are vegetarian-friendly. Bruschetta includes three large slices cut into thirds—select three varieties. The house made potato chips and hummus were also hits. Nice local beer and wine selection.

It's right by the courthouses - which is good and not so good. I've walked there in the evening from near the Hyatt without any problems. Stick to the main streets. It's also a very short cab ride so not that expensive.
