Cafe style atmosphere that serves up a pretty good bloody Mary and some terrific food. Fresh food and clean!!! A nice change of pace from the ordinary cafe style food. The catfish po boy and BBQ sauce was superb (not served together lol).

The food is always delicious here. The service was excellent even though they were busy during the Christmas parade. The prices are reasonable too... $5 for a craft beer served in a frosty mug. Highly recommended!

This place has great food and never seems to be busy. The ribs are my favorite, but I've never ordered anything I didn't like! Never had a problem with the service either.
