Delicious specials every day. Great salads and desserts. My favorite is the Southwestern salad, but it isn't offered every day.

This place is great! In an old gas station, ever-changing menu, great food! There may be a wait but it's worth it. Could be crowded and noisy but the food is delicious.

They prepare new menus every day. We had the pasta with crab, scallops, and shrimp-plenty of fish and a surprise in every bite. Scrumptious! We went for dinner-come early before the line starts-I am glad we did. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Took a client for lunch at this wonderful restaurant in Buford. It was one of the best shrimp and grits dishes I've ever had. Growing up in Savannah and visiting Charleston all the time, I recognize good seafood dishes. Wish I could find the recipe!

In an area of chain restaurants, this is a GREAT local place. Small, tasteful and waitress was great. Look forward to many more Trips here.
