Everything we ordered (oysters, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, hush puppies) were very good. But the food is super rich... although I really enjoyed my stomach was not so happy... However I would come back!!! The only item I would not order again are the hush puppies... a bit dry and boring.

Sad to see this one go. I have enjoyed CH's southern offerings for both brunch and dinner and have not had any misses yet. The only thing negative I've ever had was service, both in past and more recently. Today it was the hostess who seemed quite harried and unprepared. She didn't seem to want to help me find my party at all and kept brushing me aside but otherwise, our server and the bussers were all very nice and the food was, as usually, very tasty. I'll be curious to see what replaces CH in the future.

I'm from the Georgia lowcountry, so eating here feels like home. The macaroni and cheese paired with shrimp and grits is my go-to. The service is wonderful as well! Thanks for being awesome!

We really enjoyed our southern dinner. Biscuit was flakey and delicious! Chicken thigh was tender and tasty. Mac and cheese with just the right crust. Cornbread had too much molasses for my taste.

The Carriage House, for Sunday brunch, is popular (crowded) but conversationally challenged due to music on blast mode. It offered an interesting but very limited brunch menu with a la carte items priced over the top. $5.00 for one egg?? Puh-leeze! Pleasant, efficient serving staff. Some good, some not-so good brunch entrees. Not worth a return visit.

This place is great for people who cannot eat gluten as there are generally a wide variety of grits dishes. They have delicious cornbread too. For brunch, I would recommend the chicken and biscuit or the pork pork shoulder. Both were quite good.

Carriage house is never a disappointment. My mom got the chicken and biscuits and I got the french toast. I always like getting the grapefruit juice which is amazing too! The servers are really nice and the food is outstanding.
