    Ordered the flounder BLT and did not enjoy it, it was incredibly hard to eat and oily. The rest of my parties food was fine, I recommend the fried chicken. There were many mosquitos but that might be just a thing of the area. The service was great I just don’t think I had the best luck with the food.

    Overall my wife and I enjoyed the experience we had at this eatery. It was brunch on a Sunday so I am understanding that it was busy but we had a hard time getting our waitress to come refill our drinks. The only other downside was with the food I ordered. The country fried steak, while still good, was pretty tough and chewy. Other than that we really enjoyed ourselves and though this was a cute restaurant.

    Perfect place to take out of town friends to try Southern specialities! We had fried green tomatoes, pimiento cheese, she crab soup, flounder sandwich, and shrimp and grits. The soup was very good, the perfect consistency with sherry on top.

    Amazing food, portions are big enough to share. Great service. We could not find on-street parking but the visitor center had plenty of spots, it was a 6 min walk. Not safe for covid, poor ventilation.

    Food was very subpar. We got the stuffed drenched toast (just cream cheese frosting slathered between two pieces of French toast) and the eggs Benedict, but the poached egg was over cooked. Server was friendly.

    We made reservations for brunch and were not disappointed. I have eaten here, in the past, for lunch and dinner and the food is always great! We weren't able to get reservations for lunch or dinner this time so we opted for brunch and the restaurant did not disappoint. Staff is friendly and service is fast. My husband got a grit bowl while I opted to have eggs, biscuit and gravy, and grits. They have a menu where everyone is sure to find something delicious! Will definitely be returning the next time I am in Charleston!

    My salad was good but how do you mess up a salad. Husband ordered She crab soup and said it was awful, He knows what good she crab soup is and this was not. The table behind us sent all 3 of theirs back as well. We will never be back.

    Not a fan of the shrimp and grits. It had so much oregano and tomato sauce, i couldn't taste the shrimp or the grits. Server never refilled my water or even came to check on me after the food was dropped at my table. I ate most of my lunch with nothing to drink. It wasn't even a busy time of day.

    Excellent menu of Southern comfort food, fried chicken, tomato pie, banana pudding being some of the staples. Cooked just like Mama did. Numerous families with children. Small somewhat intimate setting, noise level was pretty loud.

    Had a lovely lunch yesterday!! Great Service!!! Food was good-excellent She Crab Soup!!!!! Pulley Chicken was just a little too salty, but moist and tender. One of us had the Shrimp And Grits-excellent! And another went the Brunch route with an omelet that was very good indeed and half of it came home!! The French Fries were a bit soggy and the SB wine from New Zealand lacked taste. Overall the four of us enjoyed the restaurant,

    Seated us at the least desirable table tucked in a corner behind the hostess stand, even though better tables appeared to be open...Forgot about one appetizer for a while...Got the other appetizer wrong, and then fixed it...Forgot about one drink order, until reminded...Both entrees were OK, but notably less than expected based upon reputation and reviews...Initial bill showed up with the incorrect, and more expensive, appetizer listed...Overall - A $100 range dinner that felt more along the lines of $50-$60...Perhaps we just caught them on a "bad day" !
