I LOVE this place. Every time I am in town, it is a must that I stop and dine in. The catfish is to die for, nice and crunchy and flavorful. I was just there this past weekend and I had the collard green dip, which is clearly a southern thing, and OMG I ate it with my fork. 😊😊😊... More

Went here with my practically-a-vegetarian daughter for dinner on a Thursday night. We were able to be seated right away. Our server was full of personality... almost pushy. He might be a turnoff to some, but we were fine with his banter. We started with a special appetizer that was really just wedge fries loaded with sauce, etc. Could have... More

The food did not live up to its reputation, the restaurant was very noisy,... More

We had spent the day looking at houses in hopes of finding the ideal home for my parents who retired this year. We stopped for a quick bite. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was fresh and worth the parking hunting. We enjoyed the PB and J sandwich... No folks it's not the PB&J that you grew... More

A friend and I ate here for lunch. The food is was excellent, love the mini sweet potato biscuits and the quaint atmosphere. After lunch we enjoyed a nice stroll through downtown WS. Nice art galleries and jewelry shops.
