The restaurant was recommended. I tried the alligator sausage po' boy. It was okay. Next time I would ask the server for a suggestion of what they like best. Not bad, but not great. Service was fine. A little crowded with the seating.

This is a little hole in the wall type of place, nothing fancy. Service was top notch. Friendly, welcoming greeting when we walked in. Our waitress was excellent. Separate checks for 4 couples wasn't a problem. The food was good too. Definitely recommend.

Looking for a good lunch from the South and someone from there recommended that place. It was really good, the place looks old but super cute and people are really friendly.
