Had dinner for 4 on an EARLY Sunday evening - service was horrible. Experienced all the bad things noted below - short staffed, long wait time, didn't bring everything we asked for, numerous menu items unavailable. Will not return.

Food was OK. Our gator bites were cooked on way too low grease and turned out chewy & greasy. Other food was ok but a bit overpriced for what it was.

Had the shrimp and grits, which were excellent! Shrimp were cooked perfectly. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was I ordered the beignets for dessert, which took forever to come out. When they did come out,...More
