This place is full of great food and atmosphere. They have several items on the menu that’s pretty unique to them. I love their sweet potato chips and their one of a kind sandwiches. If you leave this place hungry, it’s your own fault!

Don't order shrimp and grits unless you like your food very, very salty. Also, they use cheddar cheese in the grits, instead of gouda. They offered us a free desert because of the grits we couldn't finish. We choose bread pudding. It was blah. No...More
