Starting with fresh, seasonal ingredients, our chefs transform Southern favorites into something comfortable and fresh.

“Thoroughly enjoyed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

We took a friend there at her suggestion. She now works in Greenville and heard great things. Was not disappointed. Excellent service. Arugula salad was my favorite while the she crab soup though rich was excellent. I enjoyed the crab cakes while my husband and guest thought the flounder was well prepared. Overall a very nice evening spent with a wonderful friend.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The food was very good, but the knowledgeable waiter really made our meal memorable. Service was very fast the atmosphere (a former cotton trading house) was interesting.

“Very nice food in a lovely location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Lovely food, only made better by superb service. Our server had great knowledge of the food but stopped to talk about the area etc (corina, I think?). Beautiful relaxed atmosphere finished it off nicely.

“Noisy, but very good...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We're "brunch aholics" .. so my wife and I make it a point to find great fresh foods that's on the Sunday brunch tables - and we did ... it's right here in downtown Greenville SC ...

The food is very good and fresh, the service is wonderful and their prices don't make you get a 2nd mortgage on the house - don't forget the dessert table.... make a reservation, it will be busy and it can be noisy.

“Nice Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We stopped in for Happy Hour and appetizers on a busy Friday evening and had a very nice time. They had a good wine selection and the Lobster Mac n Cheese was something you don't normally see as an appetizer.
