Period costumes and characters make this a fun dining spot. The woman who portrayed Christiana Campbell made us feel that she really was telling us about things that had happened last week. The food was good. Don't miss the spoon bread.

Our waiter, Randy, was outstanding, but the fried chicken was not. The salmon was particularly good. The night we went, Christiana Campbell was not there, which was a disappointment to my kids. I would go again for the experience, but I will never order the...More

Our waitress wasn't overy attentive, and considering the cost of the entrees she should have been more so. But more disappointing was that the food (seafood in our case) was barely tepid. Not sure if the waitress was slow in picking up the order or...More
