  • An interesting mix. Loved the honey wings, and the sweet/creamy Caesar salad. The chicken Alfredo was also yum, and $5 pinch rocks…

  • Get the shrimp and grits! Best I’ve ever had! Worth the trip, the cost, the calories, the efforts, whatever your issue is. Get over it and come here!

  • Came here with friends and I got to say, the service was great. They staff was very attentive to our party of seven, even the chef checked in with us to make sure we enjoyed our meal. I would definitely come again. Love the upstairs bar area.

  • This place was off the chain. My co-worker had her send off party here and I have not seen to many places where there is good food and staff. The staff were very friendly, attentive and on point. This place has a positive environment which I find very relaxing. If you have not been here then you living under a rock.
