We really want this restaurant to be awesome because it’s the only semi nice, fun bar place around us. Since reopening after Covid it’s been an increasing disappointment.

When we first sat down it took forever for the server to greet us, take our drink order and actually bring them to our table. It was no less than 20 minutes and probably longer! We finally ordered and I chose the rotisserie chicken but about 30 minutes later the server came to tell me they ran out of chicken. Really? No chicken? Ok, I didn’t want the other three people to wait, so I just ordered the flatbread pizza. My wife ordered the salmon and requested it to be cooked through ( She orders this exact same dish every time we eat there) When the food arrived her fish was dried out, overcooked and charred. There were no side fish vegetables on the plate as usual. The Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich ordered by our friend… the bun was rock hard and dried out. The chicken was dry and over cooked. The server gave the aura of “ I could not care less”. And by his service and responses that was exactly what we got.

Overall, we have been regular customers at both the bar area and the in-dining section and this restaurant SHOULD be awesome. We want it to be awesome! Last night will most likely be our last patronage due to the food and service being increasingly sub-par quality.

Food was terrific, but like most restaurants they just don't have enough servers. We waited 20 minutes at the table for any acknowledgement that we were there. Finally went and found someone to bring water. The rest of the meal went along those lines for a couple of hours. Good food, nice servers, but complety insufficient staff. On the plus side, we didn't feel rushed! ;-)

Food was terrible. Ribs were rubbery. Kids pizza was borderline inedible. Kale and Spinach Salmon Salad had no Kale and was fish slapped on top of warm spinach.

We had a wonderful brunch, the food was great, and the service was excellent and fast. We looked at the extensive regular menu also and plan to come back soon. We highly recommend the brunch, though. $2.00 Mimosas and $3.00 Bloody Marys are an added treat. Good food, Good Service!!

Pretty disappointed with our experience. Manager was not hospitable, would rather sit down visit a table of guests he knew versus checking with other dine in guests. Our server was smoking outside when we pulled in at the back of the restaurant. Server failed to return for refills. Meat loaf was dry, fries were limpy, mash potatoes were cold. Will not recommend and will not return again.

Don't sit by the windows or you'll be swatting flies throughout your dining. We asked for clean silverware twice and two of the four still had dirty knives.
The steak was cooked perfectly - on 1/2 of it, the mahi and salmon were both overcooked but all the food was very flavorful and serviced hot.
Sammy was a good waiter. Careful when walking around, their vinyl flooring is oddly slippery. I'd give them another shot though.

Salmon was good, but the rice has a tomatillo sauce, which it is swimming in. Something like that should be noted in the menu as Tomatillo would have been a no-go for the Salmon.

Also, the pecan crusted chicken - great concept - but was drenched in a brown gravy. Not mentioned on the menu. One would think this would be either on the side or at least mentioned. Also, that type of a dish seems like it would be far better paired with some sort of light jelly/jam spread to off-set the heaviness of a pecan crusted chicken. Had a great flavor - but gravy was a bit off (fine for brown gravy, but not expected on that dish).

Ordered some roasted brussel sprouts off the app menu. The pecans and cranberries are a nice addition to that. The brussel sprouts were more side dish quality, not appetizer quality - which is normally a bit more candied and tasty at other places - or at least that is what we expected. Otherwise, it was just down the middle of what we try usually hit at home when we don't cook it quite enough.

Service was great - atmosphere pretty decent.

The food and drinks were excellent and the staff was very friendly. Service was a little slow. But overall it was a great experience. As a side note, if you like Old Fashions try the Smoked Old Fashioned. The tableside preparation was fun to watch and the drink was very good.

When we arrived no one greeted us. Several employees saw us standing at the desk but didn’t say a word. We were there 5-7 minutes before the manager came to seat us. He said nothing about being sorry for the wait.
We were thankful we waited because our waiter Tristan was excellent. He was very attentive and hospitable. The food was perfect as always.
I saw the manager standing around visiting with some of the staff during our meal.
We will give them another chance. Hope the staff has it together next time.

Great food and very attentive service. The fish and chips were great and if the fries are to heavy for you sub theme with the jicama coleslaw. We also tried to whiskey flight and were impressed with the selections. Great atmosphere for a casual dining experience

The special, choose 2 of 4 for $22, is a great value. There was zero wait for a table for 2 at 6 pm on a Tuesday. We were seated in a busy area with several large parties. One table had crying babies. Wasn’t a deal breaker but did get a little noisy towards the end of our meal. Food was great but we did have to flag down the waitress a couple of times. It didn’t impact our food, but she was busy with the 2 larger parties. Still, overall, a good experience. The shrimp and grits was outstanding

Great place for the area, considering there's really nothing but garbage fast food and lousy chain restaurants for a 10x mile radius. It's a well renovated, new looking restaurant without the overbearing modern art aesthetics that make you think you're in a kindergarten class. It's rustic yet upscale, if that makes any sense...

The waiter was very knowledgeable, with a layman's thesaurus built into his vernacular. He quickly picked up on the fact I can't stand the "foodie movement," and still enjoy the simple pleasures of eating without adding sides of bush and monkey berry seeds deep from the heart of the Peruvian jungle... He let me know what I wouldn't like, which is dramatically more important than what he thinks I would like... because 99 times out of 100, foodies get it wrong.

They have a cool drink list, albeit foodie-esq. I don't like anything but scotch on the rocks, so I don't really count, but my fiance loved what she ordered. (I thought it tasted like an overly spicy, week old margarita stirred with a rancid burrito, but she liked it... that's what counts!)

Due to my normalcy I may not be the best critic, however, if you paid attention I really enjoyed the place.

Mangia!

Good news is that this is what 'scratch cooking' is all about. Bad news is people are gonna find out about this place! We've been twice and been blown away twice. Hanger steak (aka butcher's cut) was both a surprise and a delight. Shrimp and grits are better than any I've had in the Low Country, and we used to live there! No let down with desserts. Excellent, gracious service.
