Closed because lack of business. Food was okay but not great. It's been so long that I don't remember what we ate but I do remember we weren't impressed.

This is our 3 trip to eat here. Catfish & trimmings were great. The Front Porch Burger was also very tasty. And the Pecan Pie is homemade & assume.

We specialize in delicious scratch-made food. You will not find pre-prepared or frozen, heated up foods here. We use local ingredients wherever possible and our culinary creations span from Granny's recipes to fine dining at affordable costs. We opened on September 1, 2012 after an extensive renovation and we really enjoy what we do. Come on down and enjoy old favorites like fried green tomatoes and catfish, or try a Lowcountry Bucket or Shrimp and Grits. Whatever your tastes, we have a dish for you and some unique things, too. You won't find fresher food or friendlier people that are genuinely happy to serve you. It's what we love to do.
