A lovely little local eatery in DT Asheville. We were there for a late lunch. We started with the Broccoli Cheddar Hushpuppies which sounded intriguing, but proved to be just OK. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch choices. Hubby and I ordered the shrimp and...More

Very busy, noise level isn't suitable for business lunch. Tables crowded into the space for maximum capacity. Food was decent though not really much to write home about. Staff was nice though seemed a bit overwhelmed. Really no place to wait until a table was...More

I love the Wall Street location, but the restaurant was extremely busy and loud. The food was so-so.

A friend of mine and I were in town for a short weekend and this place was recommended by a local. We had a great brunch and the service was excellent (and very fast). It was crowded and I completely understand why. It was delish!

Plan on waiting, but it will be worth it. Mixed berry jam excellent with the biscuits. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast and lunch entrees! Loved the grits!

We have been eating here for 10 years. We hate that the tourists take up all our tables as the food is great!!

It's hard to get in, especially on weekend but food is worth waiting! I strongly recommend sweet potato scramble.

I believe so. For instance they use croutons made out of grits for their salads. I had a friend with Celiacs visit me here, and we found that it's pretty easy to find gluten free options in most restaraunts. There is a... More
