“Poor customer service....”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

A big spider fell on my head and into my plate!! OMG!! I freaked, and it was staring at me stuck in my vegetables, they fixed my plate with same half eaten fish and refreshed not all of my veggies, : ( One I was really enjoying !! They never came to apologize, never sent over a drink, or bought me desert!!! lol lol No Southern hospitality here!! That would NEVER have been the case in New England!! Two servers helped me in the situation, they were horrified!! yet....nothing!! was really done to help ease the experience. A fun story though!!! Loved the meal!!! That is what counts!! : )

“Great food and service”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

My husband chose the fried chicken with greens and biscuits. The greens were the best we ever had! I chose the vegetarian selection, which is the chef's choice and can be different for each guest. It was so delicious, I kept stuffing my face well after I was full! The service was impeccable and the wine selections vast and wonderful.

“One our best meals in Charleston”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Fried chicken dinner was outstanding! Chicken was juicy, greens were the best, the down south egg roll app was worth eating, desserts were good, Décor in the rear dining room was a bit dated but the food was incredible.

We've been here twice. Fantastic both times. Great meal, great service. You must try the pork chop! One of the best anywhere.
