Management needs to pay attention to quality control and consistency of preparation. That said- the service is very good and if you hit it right can be a terrific dining experience.

Great sweet potato fries, they taste homemade. The cole slaw needs something, maybe ask for some old bay, but I like blue cheese cole slaw and they don't have blue cheese in theirs.

The food was good, but not great. The options are generous. I would go back and try something else and hope it's a little more flavorful. It would be nice to have some food options that are a little cleaner.... Not broiled with butter, baked instead of fried, light salad dressing, something.

Had crab cakes, shrimp and grits, and fried oysters and was really impressed with the presentation and the taste. Service was fantastic too. Everyone was super nice and our server went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and taken care of. Oh and the coconut pie and the key lime pie were some of the best pies I’ve ever had. Cannot wait to be back!

She is attentive without being intrusive, and is happy to make recommendations when asked. The food (particularly local dishes) is outstanding! We did the calamari appetizer and peanut butter cheesecake dessert- both terrific! The seating is VERY close together, and the noise level can get quite high. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic spot, this might not be the right place. If you are good with energy, people enjoying one another's company, and great food, this IS the spot!

She came by the table at the end of the meal and APOLOGIZED for a wait that we didn’t feel we actually experienced. Service was prompt and the food was absolutely amazing. Poor April was working the patio on her own, and she rocked it. If she were on my staff, I’d have her managing my dining room, she’s that good. Thanks to all at the restaurant for a great experience!
