We waited about an hour for a table and it was definitely worth it! I ordered the potato chip meatloaf with mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes and my husband ordered the soup of the day, and the double burger. He said it was the best soup he had ever had.( It was kind of like a shimp bisque.) My food was absolutely amazing. Very friendly staff. We were seated outside and there was a man playing his guitar and he was pretty good! My husband and I were discussing how laid back the atmosphere was and that it was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of all the other restaurants we eat at on the island. It's probably best to get there before 5:00 because when we were being seated the hostess was telling people it was going to be a 2 1/2 to 3 hour wait. (This was at 6:30) We will definitely make this a must every time we come here on vacation from now on!

This restaurant has amazing food! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming like you are eating at a friends house. Our waitress was really friendly and made great recommendations. Hope to return soon!

Great southern food, quirky atmosphere and friendly service. One of our favorite restaurants at Hilton Head. The banana pudding is an amazing finish to the meal.

We went there yesterday for lunch. I read all the great reviews and decided lunch time was our best bet since I have 3 teenage boys that cannot wait for anything! Well we got there and the hostess said it would be 35 minutes. My boys were complaining and said it better be worth it Mom.....and they all agreed at their first bite it was well worth the wait....which only ended up being 20 minutes. Shrimp and grits were awesome. The meat loaf sandwich got great reviews as did the sauteed flounder entree and the crab sandwich. The waitress was super nice. My oldest son couldn't decide between the macaroni salad or the Mac n cheese so she brought him both! Definitely worth your time!

Lots of low country dishes. Drinks served in Ball canning jars, lots of "down home" food, fried cornbread, veggies, and great desserts.
Seating inside and out but very small area in both. Service was excellent and very friendly.
