My family stopped here for lunch not knowing anything about it. We were very pleasantly surprised. The inside is very nice. The staff were friendly and professional. They had good lunch specials. The food quality was excellent.

Had lunch here and the food was outstanding. Both Peggy and I enjoy oysters so when we saw them on the menu we indulged.

I wanted some genuine southern food, so I had the shrimp and cheese grits. Delicious! My traveling partner had the squash ravioli. Both meals were fantastic. Nice atmosphere, friendly waitress. Would have explored the quaint city had I had more time. Highly recommend.
