My wife and two friends happen to be in the neighborhood and decided that since we didn’t have reservations and the restaurant look slow we’d try and be seated. They let us in and we were led to our table. Of note, the staff seemed young and while knowledgeable I would say inexperienced. For example, the hostess wore a typical black shirt but very bright green shorts. The servers were dress in all black but most of the uniforms bore the unfitted look many of today’s youth embrace. Not baggy or hanging below the waist, just not fitting well. However as I said they were very knowledgeable in the menu and to my surprise the wine list as well. The atmosphere is antique Charleston true the nearly 200 year age of the building. Rustic but at the same time charming. The most remarkable thing about this place is even after the dinner crowd came in we could still talk in a normal voice and be heard by everyone at our table. The dining area is small but I observed it made for pleasurable conversation between the guests. The food was excellent. I had the pork which was cooked to perfection, two of the ladies in our group had the flounder, and while one found it dry and salty (her taste) the other loved it. They even swapped out the one meal for another quickly and with issues what so ever. In all I think it is a great date place. I probably would not go there for a business meal but to just enjoy each other’s conversation. It’s a keeper. Oh yea the portions are large. If you’re really hungry try the lasagna. It’s a mountain of greatness.
