Stopped by on the off season for dinner with friends while visiting for the weekend. Food and service was good. The Flounder was great!

We had our first real Southern breakfast here after leaving Washington DC (country ham and grits!). Great eggs, all was delivered hot and succulent. I'm sure their other meals are as good, as it appeared the manager is really committed to service.

We had originally wanted to eat at the Breezeway (closer to where we were staying), but found this place and loved it. Some unique sauces, great ambiance, food was very good and seemed fresh. Very crowded during "Labor Day Week", but worth the wait. Atmosphere...More
