This place was suggested to us by a friend who had been there on another trip. He desribed it as a place where the locals go and not one of the touristy spots. i'm glad we tried it because it is not mentioned much any where else. We went mid-afternoon, so they weren't very busy. My had the crab stew...awesome, i had the lamb burger with tzatziki sauce. It was huge and very good. I had the Ocilla slaw as a side,it had small pieces of peppers (banana peppers?) in it. It was very good and a slight change of pace.

Went early Friday evening as we heard queues were common, no bookings taken. Seated at high table in bar area, good atmosphere without being too noisy. Waitress was really good, in spite of a busy shift. Food was good southern style bar food, pulled pork nachos & gumbo were very tasty. Great selection of local beers plus vintage beers from the past. Well worth the 15 min walk from Andaz hotel beside Ellis square.

We walked over for a later dinner and weren't disappointed. The sweet potato fries were spectacular and our waiter was swift and sure! Definitely will go here again.
