Great atmosphere, solid service...but after trying this place 4 times and while the food is always hot, presented nicely it has been a little bland. They need to spend a little more time on some of these dishes as they could be amazing, but really lack much flavor. I would add that they do an amazing job with the kids dishes.

Wow, what a great lunch. Had my first shrimp and grits, excellent. Everyone's meal was well presented and tasteful! Only issue, service was slow, but they were busy! Looking forward to going back.

Walk in customers and promptly seated inside as per our preference. Service was prompt. Tables have linen and were clean. Menu had sufficient variety for us. Food was visually well presented and to our taste. Portion sizes were more than adequate for our appetites. Bill was correct and overall was reasonable value. We would go again.

Six of us met for an early dinner on a Friday evening. Everything from start to dessert was excellent. Very tasty meals. Outstanding service by a young server, Parker. Will definitely return.

I have had some good visits in the past but this was not one of them. There were four of us and the service was lackluster. It took awhile to get the food. I was wanting a glass of wine with dinner but the waitress never came by after we got our food to ask if we wanted something else. Never asked if we wanted more drinks besides the first cocktail after we sat down. I ordered a fish piccata dish and it had neither capers nor lemon sauce which pretty much defines the dish. Don't call it a piccata if it's not. I saw capers listed on the menu but none were there. It had broccoli and carrots in it. Call it a pasta primavera then! The fish was over fried more like in fish and chips and less like the slightly breaded and sautéed you'd expect. Anyway, not good. Other's meals were ok, better than mine.
