We are here for a friend's 30th birthday. We arrived before our reservations so we set out in the sunroom area and watched the UK game. Despite the freezing temps outside, the room was warm and and cozy! The ladies lounged on the couches while the men sat at the bar. It had a very southern, beachy, feel out there- perfect for a winter's day! Our dinner was good and the service was great! It was a tad pricey, but for a special occasion it was great! The short ribs were delicious as well as the multiple appetizers we all shared! We will definitely be back!

4 of us ate dinner on dec. 18. 3 of us had shrimp and grits and the other had the crab cake. The shrimp and grits were divine. I don't normally order this dish but so many people have raved about it that I decided to try it. I am so glad i did! The shrimp were delicious and were cooked perfectly. The grits were delicious too. Our server was busy as he also had a large group but his timing was great. We never had to wait for an offer of another cocktail or to have our water filled. I love this place and will continue to come back again and again.
