Wondered in on our first night in Greenville and we loved this place! The bartender was so friendly and helpful and the food was insane! LOVED everything he recommended. He also made me the most awesome drink. Would definitely go back.

Hey Kevin, Thank you for the review and great feedback. We do get a little rowdy on Mondays but are much more low key the rest of the week. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and the service. Hope to see you again...More

I had the chicken fingers platter and mine was fine. Service was a little slow but it was right downtown.

My husband and I come here reasonably often to have what we would call "home cooking" with a southern flair. Comfort food that is delicious. I always get a pulled pork dinner and he gets the beef brisket. Love it!
