We have eaten there twice. Both times the food and service were very good! Our group ordered shrimp + grits, crab cakes, a burger, chicken pizza, and a tomato pizza. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. We will be back.

We took advantage of a parking garage around the corner. We had a long wait (30+ minutes) for a Sunday Brunch. Service was slow. It took an unusually long time to see a waitress. It took several requests to even get water served. Noise level...More
