On the Main Street. Parking in front. Wonderful service and menu. We ate at the bistro bar. Nice wine selection and a few small plates that more than filled us up. We will be going back.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner here recently. The BBQ shrimp and grits were very good, but the lobster bisque was the best! Our service was good, and the atmosphere was very nice. The beautiful Christmas decorations added to our special evening!

We stopped in for hors d'oeuvres and were glad we did. I recommend the shrimp and grits, kale salad and hand breaded fried brie. The special martinis are good too.
