We were with a group of friends. The menu was varied. We all like to try each other‘s food and every bit of it was delicious. Our service was also excellent. The pork loin with slaw was a favorite.

You'd think during restaurant week they would try to impress, not the case here. Shrimp and Grits app was child size and ok, the pork tenderloin flavorless, the cola cake dessert dry and flaky. One good point was our lovely waitress, we tipped her for...More
