$6 for a Narragansett draft???? I had shrimp and grits which is typically one of my favorites. I found it to be overly salty and spicy. The pimento burger, salads, tomato soup and fried green tomatoes received positive reviews. So noisy that we had difficulty...More

Not really sure what the buzz is all about. Daughter had chicken and waffles and really liked it. Liver and onions was not good as well as the fried steak. Mac and cheeses was ok though.

Whoever was in charge of decorating did SUCH AN AMAZING JOB! I will say that it probably would do better somewhere downtown or an a more "hip" area. I had the chicken and waffles and my husband had the shrimp and grits both which were...More

This is a great little place next to 2 Meatballs in the Kitchen. We've heard about the Chicken N Waffles but decided Togo a little lighter. My wife had the Crab Cakes which were 2 big cakes loaded with lots of flavor. Her 2 sides...More
