This restaurant has a great atmosphere and located in a prime area of Columbia... The Vista. Parking is horrible for the place. The food is great and the servie is superb. I don't eat grits and wanted a subsitition, the server was very helpful in making recommendations and it was not a problem to make the change. I would definitely go back again.

Great atmospher. Great service. I found the shrimp and grits to be mediocre. I also had the appetizer sampler and must say the majority of it was good, but the fried green tomatoes were the worst I have had.

Have eaten here a few times when in Columbia on business. We always leave a night in the schedule to come here for some really great seafood. The service has always been adequate & timely. The gumbo & shrimp and grits are really good. I have heard only good things about the food from members of our group.

We liked the location. We dined outside because it was a nice day & the inside was a bit too dim. The really low lighting was not desirable. The prices were reasonable. The calamari was delicious. The ravioli was ok. The flounder had too much breading & not enough flavor. Our waiter was great.We might give them another try if ever in the area again.

After living in Columbia for 20+ years we finally went to this establishment. We both ordered the shrimp and grits appetizer, very tasty. For an main course I ordered the shrimp creole, it had a good taste but the rice was undercooked and crunchy. I sent the dish back (I have never done before) and asked for another dish of shrimp and grits which I was very pleased with. The server was very cordial and understanding. I was pleased overall by the experience. Price for the dishes were about $11, not bad. Great location on the middle of the Vista.
