However, it’s a Great space, a quiet bar and they have great staff. I would come back for drinks and ambiance.

Our server, Max, was amazing including bringing beer tastes to help make a decision. Food took a while but owner stopped to check on us and said other owner was cooking as they were short staffed. Shrimp and grits was delicious. Firecracker shrimp was good. About a dozen beers to choose from and full bar. Parking out front.

The only complaint was the potato appetizer was in available which seems a bit strange being that they are just taters. Must be really special! Seriously, we will eat there again. 👍🏻

I had the brisket meal with mashed potatoes, both of which were dry. Overall, the meal felt home-like, but kind of like "Sunday" leftovers. Overpriced for the quality. Service was okay and the place was okay for kids, although it is a bar, and it was a bit noisy.

Matthew was our server and he was great! The food was amazing. It was my birthday and I had the Cajun Brisket Fettuccine and it was fantastic. We started with the Baked goat cheese and ended with the bread pudding. 10/10 recommend!

I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of their choices are made in-house, and the server had lots of suggestions. Honestly, it's been a long time since I've had a server as engaged as ours. Good food, great service, and fun with friends.....a successful evening.
