I had never been to Fairhope Al but this trip for the Thanksgiving holiday was a surprise. Not only was the service excellent, but the food was beyond good. The salmon dish was the best my wife has ever eaten. The crab cake appetizer to die for. I suggest if you are in this area to be sure to make... More

This restaurant is relatively small so you will need to make reservations. The food is perfectly prepared with tasty choices for every preference and the service is friendly and accommodating. Each visit has provided a good meal and a good time.

The scallops were excellent as was the bourbon pecan pie. The only drawback was the limited menu. Not much to offer. The staff was friendly and the service was great.

Server was great. Food was excellent. A nice, intimately sized restaurant with quite good food, nice wine list, and a well-stocked bar. Well worth a visit if you are in Fairhope or Point Clear. Not really set up for any large groups. Mostly tables for 4 and not much apparent ability to combine them for larger seating.

The atmosphere was excellent for a business meeting as it was not too noisy and we didn't have to shout over the noise to be heard. The food was excellent and... More
