We sat outside at a cozy table. She crab soup some of the best I ever had - shrimp and grits delicious. Our waiter was a bit unfriendly and over charged us. Thankfully, we took the time to check our bill.

The servers and bartender were very nice. We sat outside and the courtyard was nice. Our food was pretty good, I can't say exceptional. I noticed the patrons on one side sent their steaks back for some reason and the patrons on the other side...More
