We had a delicious meal surrounded by art on all the walls. The art was eclectic and for sale. The menu was varied and the food outstanding! The portions were reasonable and the service was good. The food is local and fresh - yea!

Make a point to be at the Starving Artist Café on a “Tales of the South” night (the first Tuesday of each month). The food is fine, but it’s the experience of hearing writers read their own compositions that makes this event so memorable. These...More
