Ended up at this restaurant by chance and didn't regret it one bit! The place is crowded, but worth a wait. The waitress was friendly and efficient. Took our order and another table's order without writing one thing down. Then not one mistake! She was very good. The food was a welcome surprise. The shrimp & grits was very creative and had a little "kick" to it. The cream puff that we had to take in a doggie bag was excellent. Big enough for 3-4 people, but worth it. I wish we had this place here in Rochester, NY.

We were traveling on our way back from eating fabulous food in New England and just didn't want to stop quite yet. My mother had some Long Island Blue oysters in Boston and couldn't stop thinking about them. We tried them here and they were good. They had a little more batter than she usually likes, but the sweet potato fries made up for them. I had the blacked chicken over creamed corn and it was just delicious. I have to say the balsamic vinigaeret was the best I've ever eaten. Take a moment to read some of the nice cards people have written to the owners on the bulletin board. The owners seem to be the real deal and care about their customers and community.

I arrived at 5:30PM and it was already crowded.The parking was tight, but many customers were parked in the grass area next to the parking lot. I was seated quickly and there were people coming in steadily behind me. The staff is quick, efficient, and friendly. There is a good size menu to please just about any palate. I enjoyed the fried oysters appetizers (perfect for two, a little bit much for one) and the Cobb salad (dinner size) (Romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, diced tomatoes, corn, hard boiled egg, feta cheese, guacamole). I saved a little room for dessert. The coconut cake was moist and flavorful without being overly sweet. If you're from out of town, you get to put a pin in on the big map for your home state/home town.

Average at best. I enjoy some of the uniqueness of this place but I could take it or leave it!

All staff we encountered were friendly. Menu varied with reasonable prices. Parking can be a bit tricky, but the many cars showed that it's a popular place!
