One of the nicest places to eat in Fairhope. A reservation is always needed. Great service and super food, prepared to perfection. Nice bar. Parking along Section Street and on some side streets.

we had a lovely meal with a memorable and personable waiter. Great crafted cocktails and enjoyed the grilled artichoke, crab cake, shrimp and grits, flatiron steak and spoon cake. Every morsel was delicious. They even have limoncello.
