The food took over a half hour to appear so we had to shove 3 bites into our faces so we could be timely.

Pitchers offered for HH are fun and the right size for sharing for two. Best part of this place is how quiet/calm it is at that time of day- you can have an actual conversation.

The music is not too loud and we can talk without screaming & you can hear each other no problem. We had an amazing waiter that night. He was so attentive & very helpful. The food was good and the service was great. The only downside was a little pricey.

Husband has chicken and biscuit and I had shrimp and grits. Both delicious. Favorite side was the Brussel sprouts . Ordered ice tea but it was terrible!! Being a southerner, I know good ice tea! With a menu that has comfort food, you need ice tea!

I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this place to friends.

Wonderful cocktail list. Nice selection of comforting dishes. We shared all plates: a lovely salad with crunch and feta cheese, mac and cheese, hush puppies, deviled eggs, fried chicken, chicken liver mousse, delicata squash and feta, shrimp and grits, biscuits. I would go back again. Seems a great place to go after gallery hopping.
