A great brunch on the veranda with the family. Appetizer of fried green tomato, salads and soup were all very good. Entrees of salmon, steak and eggs, and the best shrimp and grits ever!!!

This is a long standing restaurant with good food, but pricey for 5 points. If wether permits, sit outside. Not busy as it should be, it is a good restaurant with reliable food. Ten years ago, you would be hard pressed to get a seat...More

Everything from the ambience, the wait staff, and most of all the food, just great. We had the rack of lamb and the pork, both served with perfectly paired veggies. Will be back!
