What a wonderful surprise for a business lunch. Server was great. I had shrimp and grits. Tasted so good and filling. The was quiet enough for a good discussion with my friend. I’ll have to come back and bring my wife. So good.

The last two times we’ve eaten here the food was excellent (ahi tuna) but the service was excruciatingly slow. Took forever to get a cocktail tonight, then even longer to order plus our waiter kept touching his nose which kind of bothered me. Perhaps because...More
