This is the place that I love to go for my anniversary, birthday and any other day my husband will take me. Believe me, it is the place to go and eat when you are looking for the best food in town .

A good solid restaurant with a traditional southern upscale menu. By that I mean that you don’t see fried chicken and cat fish on the menu but you do find a lot of meat, big portions, and traditional fair. No vegetarian dishes here (unless you...More
