Enjoyed a very good lunch. The service was outstanding and the Bloody Mary's and food was wonderful. The salads were very fresh and the meat loaf and shrimp and grits were delicious. I will go there again when I am in South Bend.

Without a doubt one of the top 3 restaurants in South Bend. The wild mushroom soup is a must. Service was very good and out waiter was very knowledgeable about the daily specials. A definite destination restaurant.
