Our party included four adults and one small child on a recent Thursday evening. We had made reservations and were seated immediately in a charming window table. The tables are close together, but we felt comfortable throughout our dinner.
I ordered a Porch Swing, which was a delicious cocktail with vodka and fresh cherries-similar to the old "Shirley Temple," but with quite a punch. If you like sweet drinks, you'll love the Porch Swing.
Our group shared the deviled eggs and soft pretzels for appetizers. I highly recommend both of these.
My husband and I both ordered the fried chicken because we had heard such good things about it. It definitely lives up to its reputation. The chicken was heavily breaded, but it still tasted light and crispy.
For dessert, we shared the trio of puddings. They are the perfect size after a large meal.
Our service was excellent.

The restaurant is in the middle of a neighborhood - I even had to park on a neighborhood street - but it was worth it. The beef jerky appetizer was interesting and the boneless fried chicken - that was featured on the DDD episode - did not disappoint. It was great, and was the main reason we came. The 3 pudding dessert, consisting of butterscotch with whipped cream, chocolate, and creme brulee was one of the best desserts I ever had. A hidden gem of a place to be sure!

This is one of the best fried chicken I have had. That's from a guy raised on southern fried chicken!

Our party of five enjoyed a great dinner here. Most of us had the fried chicken, which was served with outstanding mashed potatoes and gravy and collard greens. Generous portions.

The food was fresh and the menu varied. The chicken appetizer was really tasty. The menu included child dishes. I had delicious salmon served on freshly cooked vegetables with quinoa. Others had chicken dishes.The ten year old had a hamburger with fries.
The food was excellent. The noise level was very high when we were there, so it was difficult to hear conversations at a long table with 8 people. The portions were very generous. Liked the food, but not the noise!
