This place is very charming and nicely decorated. Our waitress was excellent! But....not impressed with the food. We tried the cheese plate which was all grocery store brand quality cheese, one tasteless green olive spread and couple picked green beans. The nicest thing was the...More

We were so happy to enjoy a delicious dinner with our son and his wife on Saturday night. The dishes we enjoyed were shrimp and grits, red snapper, and a fabulous steak. Of particular note were the dessert brûlée shooters that were the perfect size...More

This was our first time with the new owners. Everything was excellent. We had dinner on Friday and breakfast on Sunday. I look forward to visiting this restaurant again.

We've been here many times in the past. There are new owners and the cuisine has gone markedly downhill. Greasy fried green tomatoes, cremated scallops. Nothing worthwhile. Won't be returning. The menu has been changed salads, entrees and desserts are no longer available.

Neat and clean. You are at the coast so casual beach attire is the norm.
