Saturday Brunch. I must recommend the Pear Mimosa. I had at least 2. The Orange sherbet was amazing too! I also recommend the shrimp and grits. The fried green tomatoes are great (I don’t like pimento cheese so I asked them to leave it off.) The steak and the chicken were a bit dry. 😳 Service was good. The ambiance was great. We will return.

I would have liked to see more cleaning between guests, but I did like seeing the sufficient space among patrons. Loved the dogs outside with owners and fire things for heat. Food was tasty, but we were bounced among three wait staff the entire night. That didn't help when determining how much and who we were tipping. Surprisingly, we didn't feel rushed or checked in on too much. Great staff attitude the whole time of 2 hrs or so. Loved dessert!

Covid-dining and even with the heaters outside, it was too cold and we opted for inside. All guidelines observed. Not crowded, so distancing wasn't a problem. Server was attentive and food was good from the oysters-in-the-half, large salads and burgers, to the special coffee beverages.

Fairly awful experience. We were seated just fine but had to leave as no server approached our table for any reason within about 14 minutes. Menu looked great though.

We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal out while our kitchen is demolished during a renovation. While our meals were very good, overall this is not a stellar value for the price.

It was okay! I’ve had better at this establishment. My vegetarian friend ordered a sandwich with no meat and meat came on it. She ordered something else and still could not get what she asked for. The waitress did her best but I was disappointed. Usually you guys never disappoint.

I put a message in the reservation and told our waiter...my 6 yr old daughter picked this place to celebrate her birthday. They did not do anything out of the ordinary for her.
I brought back a growler, our waiter said he couldn’t refill it but then he changed his mind and said he could. He brought us back the growler with no top, explaining that we didn’t bring in a top and he would have to charge us $10 for a top. I explained that we couldn’t take an open container in the vehicle home. He had to check if he could void it off our tab.
We have dined here several times but tonight was such a let down.
The food was ok, my steak had a few gristly pieces and the salad did not have enough dressing. I was finished before our waiter returned and I could as for more dressing.

We had Brunch here for my Niece’s belated birthday present. They were very accommodating towards my 6 year old daughter’s needs and kept the flow pace running smoothly. There was a situation with their third party system involving gift cards but they were still able to honor them when we went to pay out. The items were varied (cauliflower hash, smoked Gouda grits, ricotta pancakes, lobster eggs Benedict, apple crumb pie, mimosas, bloody Mary’s with housemate beef jerky, pear bellinis, all very good! When you sit down they bring you seasoned popcorn they make in a machine around the bar which is novel and fun. It’s a very solid location to come out and see these guys are up too!

The service we received was excellent. Attentive and detailed. We enjoyed the food and the adult beverages. Brussel sprouts were the highlight for us! Says a lot since we are meat eaters!! They helped us create a meal for our fur babies on both occasions that really made the difference for us!! We will be back!

Classic southern fare with a slight twist in a cozy environment. Everyone will find something that they will enjoy on this menu. Food and drinks are a bit pricey but they taste good and are enjoyable. Slower paced to take your time to enjoy your food and company.

Def disappointed after reading the stellar reviews. The Roasted Chicken was awful. The mussels were very good and the lobster mac and cheese left much to be desired.
