    Food is always just plain great! You can never go wrong with the crab soup, shrimp and grits or fried chicken!!!! ALL AMAZING! I always love the vibe and atmosphere. Our waitress was snobby with an attitude which was unnecessary as we were nothing but nice. It was my guests first time there so that was a bit of a bummer.

    We arrived earlier than our reserved time and were greeted by two very friendly hostesses. We were seated immediately and greeted again by our server Andy, who did an excellent job throughout our meal. The food was delicious and the service was great. We’ll definitely visit again.

    Had a reservation for 6 but had 2 additions at the last minute. They were super-accommodating even though they were busy, and managed to get us an adjoining table for the additional guests. Server was very fun, and the food was excellent. Everyone had a great time.

    We used to eat at SCK fairly often and had always been a huge fan however this visit wasn’t as good as prior visits. It took a long time for our orders to arrive and when they did they tasted overcooked and lukewarm as if they’d been sitting for a while before being served. In addition the noise level was very loud due to another group sitting in the same area as ours who felt the need to converse in their loudest “outdoor “ voices as if they were at a football game. I’m all for having fun but they were obnoxious.

    Overall, it was a great experience. The only thing that took us aback was the cost of alcoholic beverages. We each got a rum punch, and our friend a glass of Chardonnay = $65.00 (including tip). Our dinner for the two of us what $68.00, which made sense and was expected. Just seemed like drinks were awfully expensive.
