A good first taste of po-boys and burgers, but also tasty salads. Sitting outside with the lovely view was great. Also had a good choice of local beers. Quite good overall.

I got the pimento cheese plate; phenomenal. Hubby got chicken salad and loved it. Kids loved their kid meals - can't remember what they got. Great service. The whole town raves about it. You can't go wrong.
