My friend and I went here for lunch. We were both on our lunch break, which like most people is an hour. We were seated straight away (great), our server took our drink order but didn't offer to take our food order immediately, which we were ready to give, but she bolted. When she returned and finally took our order... More

I stopped in for lunch and had the Southern Pie with a side of fried okra. Overall the dish had descent flavor, but the beef was a bit salty. The okra was spot on. The portion was rather small and I would expect a little more for $11.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. It's a small place and doesn't look like much on the outside but the food and staff are great. I had a ribeye, fried oysters, and grilled zucchini...superb@!!

I had a Rib Eye, cucumber and tomato salad & fried green tomatoes, really good! My wife had Prime Rib, collards and mashed potatoes. I tried hers and I think it was a little better than mine. She liked my steak too. Great sweet tea. Nice waitress made it a great lunch experience! Going back soon!

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious Valentine's dinner. The Shrimp & Grits and the Southern Pie were both excellent. We especially enjoyed the chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine's. Also, the very friendly hosts walked around and made sure everyone was enjoying their meals. Highly recommend!

Stopped for lunch at the recommendation from a staff member at Swan Lake Iris Gardens & were delighted with our choice! My husband had the seafood platter which he raved about. I had the fish special ( I don't recall the name), but it was delicious. Both came with flavorful sides & the great cheese biscuits. The service was lovely... More

I tried once and did not find the items I tried that great. She crab soup- more like warm crab pudding( it was really thick and heavy) soup isn't normally thicker than a pudding. Service was great.
