    The food was good and the service was great. Our party of 6 had a 15% gratuity already added into the bill and we had no problem adding additional tip money.

    First let me start with the corn bread was cooked to perfection and it tasted delicious. The country fried chicken and the waffle and chicken had amazing flavor. The strawberry lemonade was on point. The staff is super polite and attentive. Thanks to our Uber driver Timothy for recommending this amazing spot.

    The place was very nice. Really enjoyed myself. It was just really loud. I guess from everyone talking over each other. The food was okay. The fish taste a little burnt and the cabbage was just to plane. Other than that. That's a place I would recommend and return back as well.

    Food was excellent and ambiance was nice. The lemonade and tea was perfect and everything tasted fresh. My only issue is I felt rushed and I believe they only give you an hour to an hour and half to order and eat. They will literally ask you to leave “politely”. All that aside I’d still go back because the food and my waitress were amazing.

    The experience was okay for a first time and only time. I would definitely recommend for a small get together or group dinner as the space is very accommodating but I wasn’t impressed by the food or the service. Overall it was just okay.

    The whole meal felt rushed, almost like they just wanted us out of there. They brought our meals out before we even finished our appetizer or our bread. The entrees were not the best, but I will say the fried oysters were amazing! Overall, the food was mediocre for the very high prices. I’d recommend going to Juleps to get amazing food for around the same price.

    The food was very good, but they should be using fresh string beans not canned. Too much grease in the egg rolls. The corn muffins are to die for

    The atmosphere was lovely. The music was a nice touch as well. The cornbread was so yummy, I’m not a fan of butter but the bread was very delicious. The portion size is wonderful. I left full and with a to go box. The desserts up front looked so yummy but we weren’t offered dessert or a menu to order sweets. Everything was wonderful and we will definitely be back.
