I really enjoy the food at this restaurant. Everything I have ever ordered is freshly prepared and really delicious. The filet is wonderful. Also, Wednesday is half price wine night which is a great deal. Definitely try this place if you’re in the area!

We were surprised by some of the choices on the menu. You don't often find scallops away from the coast.

The food is great! The shrimp and grits are amazing and consistent every time I order them. I loved the burger. The shrimp cocktail and crab claws are perfect. The place is always busy but well worth the time and have patience with the staff....More
