It's trying for "atmosphere" but falls short.
On the positive side, they have many different beer selections---Guinness, for example---and a "traditional" southern style menu. If you can't eat salty dishes for health reasons or want something organic or vegetarian, then you'll need to try somewhere else. The green beans and cucumber/onion side dish were really good.
On the negative side, if you choose to sit in the front near the bar or have to because it is crowded, then be prepared to hear "bar talk." If you have kids, this may not be appropriate.
I'm not referring to the customers but to the waitresses. We came at the tail end of "regular" lunchtime, so things were slower. Some waitresses were eating at the bar before they left for the day. It wasn't too cool to hear about their previous night's antics. We were having conversation at our table, or trying to, and it wasn't easy. Perhaps a little training for these young ladies to remind them that the paying customers needs come first, not a "telenovela" of their love lives. Yes, I remember what it was like to be 20 years old but I was trained to know that the workplace is where you work, period. "You never get a second chance to make a first impression."
