We had a group of 19 and they did a fabulous job of serving us and getting everything right. Food was soooo good! Favorite dishes were cornbread pancakes, shrimp and grits and huevos rancheros. Reasonably priced and delicious brunch.

Bloody Mary's were delicious & spicy. Food was delicious, service was outstanding. Great atmosphere, decor, and plenty of seating. Menu was decent, but they did sell out of certain brunch dishes. Will definitely be back!
