Want to experience real, nourishing, delicious Southern food? This is the spot. The chicken livers were better than Mama's and everything else just as good. There's also a lovely outside dining area for when the weather's nice. Don't miss it!

They are opened for dinner. I suggest you call them ahead of time. The food is outstanding but they do run out of a few items every night so best to call and reserve a table and menu items.
