A wonderful pre-symphony dinner! The Old Fashioned made with Elijah Craig was quite tasty, and the fried green tomatoes, pan-fried trout, and sides were delicious. My spouse and I have been limiting carbs, so the cornbread and biscuits with butter were decadent enough to count as dessert. All that and friendly quality service. Highly recommended!

Always a classic Southern place. Try and get a table where the AC vent is not blowing directly on the table.

Food was delicious! We ordered the Egg white frittata, chicken livers, cheese grits, lump crabcake, pecan waffles and an enormous biscuit stuffed with ham, cheese and eggs. Our big party received prompt and attentive service and attention to our gluten free eaters.

I dined here and the food was amazing but the service was even better. My server Calvin provided stellar service and he went above and beyond to assist me. I don’t think I want to eat here unless Calvin is working. If management sees this please give Calvin a Raise!

Now back to the meal the fried chicken was JUICY and the greens tasted like they had big momma in the back cooking them. Lastly the mashed potatoes had to be mashed by Angels. 10/10 I would definitelu recommend!

The southern menu didn’t disappoint. The fried green tomatoes and collards were very good. So was my duck. Our waiter Pablo was the greatest. Very accommodating. Very knowledgeable. The only negative about the experience was that rowdy bachelorette table next to ours that turned the noise level higher than 80 decibels. Couldn’t blame SCK for that, but I wouldn’t wait to get out of there.

We had reservations for two and had two friends unexpectedly join us. The host didn’t say “I’m sorry…” she said let me see what I can do…and she sat us within 10minutes! The food good, only complaint was my chicken livers were a tad bit over cooked. Our server, Q was friendly!
