Best Low Country Shrimp and Grits Ever!! Solid draft beer selection including local favorites. My wife ordered the filet and loved it.

Sat on bar side, listened to live jazz, enjoyed appetizers and **shrimp and grits** which were delicious. Service was excellent. Wi-fi is available. Drinks were nicely done. Would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

It's hard when the reviews don't go so well. Be your own judge. For our group, the customer service was lacking and the food was bland. Sorry

Excellent service. Food was exquisite. Halibut with mango relish and Elk meatloaf were to die for. Yummy bread and delicious wine menu.

Everything we had was good! Our favorite was the bacon wrapped figs! Wine selection is very good. Chicken and dumplings were unique with a tomato base, and very good. Halibut with risotto was great, but the fish got a tad over cooked. Service was wonderful!

I had some of the best food of my life here! We sat in the lounge and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and live music! The sautéed mushrooms and sweet potato fries were to die for.
