My husband and I ate here for dinner one night while staying in Santa Rosa for vacation. We were looking forward to some southern food and this restaurant did not disappoint. The menu had a number of appealing options and my husband chose the shrimp and grits and I chose the blackened catfish which came with macaroni and cheese and greens. I really enjoyed my dish. I love greens and they were cooked so well, slightly tangy. I don't recall the sauce they were cooked in. I also am a big fan of mac-n-cheese, this dish was very good as well. The portion of catfish was quite large, almost more than I could eat as there were two good sized pieces. The fish was tender, spicy, quite tasty. My husband raved about his shrimp and grits and I had a few tastes as well. A delicious dish, I forgot how good grits could be and the combination of ingredients went together so well. My husband was still talking about this dish a few times the next day. For an appetizer we had a basket of the fried okra, as we are fans of the vegetable. They were also cooked very well and we had no problem polishing them off. Our food came fairly quickly. I noted that the table next to us did not fare as well. Their order was quite delayed and a manager and the waitress were at their table several times apologizing for the wait. For dessert I ordered the key lime pie, a dessert I can't resist, but I have to admit it was very difficult to decide from the offerings, several of which are my favorites such as carrot cake, red velvet cake, pecan pie, sweet potatoe bread pudding, mud pie and I think cheesecake. My husband had the mud pie; coffee flavored ice cream in a chocolate cookie crust topped with chocolate, caramel syrup and whipped cream. His dessert was quite large and very good. I loved the key lime pie which was topped with a generous dollop of whipped cream. I am a big fan of whipped cream and there was plenty of it on this pie. Our server was a very pleasant young woman but the service seemed rather uneven. There were times we did not see her for awhile and our drinks were not filled up as often as we liked. Seating is both inside and outside as well as near the bar area. I would probably give the restaurant 4-1/2 stars if I could based on the combination of food and service, but 5 stars for the food. I wish we lived closer so we could visit here more often and try some of their other dishes!
