Love this restaurant! We dine there quite often. Best in Tuscaloosa for quiet date nights, out-of-town guests, special occasions, or even a quick appetizer. The food is always excellent and very creative with a variety of selections! The service is fabulous!

Business casual is recommended on weekends. However, many regulars are perfectly comfortable throughout the week in even more casual attire.
