    If you haven't had the cobia with goats milk grits and collard greens in a lemon sauce, you're really missing out on a very delicious meal. My compliments to the chef once again! This is a seasonal fish, so go while it's still on the menu. Just outstanding! We also had the pork belly and the fried oysters to share for an appetizer. Both of those were also wonderful! Service and ambiance wer spot on. We will certainly be back again and again.
