Enjoyed this place for an anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. They had a good selection of dishes and there was plenty to eat. My favorite was an appetizer: pimento cheese fondue with homemade chips.

Nice bar area and food is always great. Try the tuna over grits. Dark bar area near door and half off wine nights as well. Great downtown spot.

A downtown fixture, tucked away in a newly renovated Plaza, situated in an interesting, old, brick, building. Outdoor seating available. Cozy bar. Friendly service. Family owned. The Southern-style Nachos are great! Food is delish. Full bar.
