I had a very special time here on a road trip with a friend. The location is cozy and fun, and it makes you feel at home. Out back, you can have a drink while waiting for your table (we arrived early, and were almost disappointed when they called us for our reservation, because we were having such a great time) at the Coop. There are tables with umbrellas, a fire pit, and a bar with tractor seats for bar stools out there.
The food and service are just scrumptious and down to earth, though luxurious.
We had fried green tomatoes and mussels as an appetizer- OMG, just do it- and I had the shrimp and grits for dinner, which was just heavenly. The flavors were so delicate, yet the dish was hearty. My friend had the duck confit, which I tasted, and she gobbled.YUM.
I had a bourbon from their ample choices.
For dessert we had the coca cola cake. It is plenty to share, a moist and dense bundt cake with a ganache to knock your socks off, served warm with melty vanilla ice cream on top. I wanted to move to the South after this amazing experience.
