The 8 of us tried a number of dishes from chicken to fish to liver as recommended by staff. Found everything to be exceptional. We followed with dessert and we're not disappointed. We shared a number of desserts and all agreed the key lime pie was the best ever. Nothing wrong with ANY of the desserts. Stop by and enjoy... More

This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The service was incredible. I wish we could remember our waitress's name. She had bangs, tattoo, and a nose ring. She was excellent. She was friendly and gave great advice. We got the cheese plate and asked them to pick. They did a great job! The... More

We visited on July 18th, 2016. The atmosphere was very cozy. The food was top notch and our server, Billy, was too. Prices were what you would expect for such a nice restaurant.

From fried chicken livers with grits to fried chicken to caramel praline carrot cake, the food was fantastic. The fried okra was likewise fresh and delicious. As good as the food was it was accompanied by friendly, attentive service. Can't wait to return and consume a few more thousand calories.

Great drinks, appetizers, desserts, and main dishes. Fancy setting without the requirement of suit and tie and expensive dining. Great for friendly outings as well as family dinner or dates. Also good for drinks and or apps.

We stopped here for we had with us our vegan daughter. Our food (shrimp and grits) was fantastic and her food was amazing. Don't pass on the deserts as they rank right up there with some of the best. Parking was close by at a parking garage and they do validate parking up to 3 hours.
