They have a large variety for a small menu. We are a large group, each of us ordered different items with everyone loving what they ordered. We cut sandwiches in quarters and shared, each one of us loving what we ordered and what we sampled. The owner is brilliant, they put together a menu using the sweet potato in very... More

We always get the fried chicken and fried okra, true southern dishes. We also like the pimento cheese dip. Food is very good, just be prepared to wait a while on weekends unless you get there early.

Great spot for soul satisfying southern cooking. I had the fish and grits for breakfast- delicious! Just the right amount of spice to balance the creamy yumminess of the grits. Husband had pancakes with fried chicken on top- total decadence! We will be back. :-)

The food and service is always good. However, I had children in my dining party and there really wasn't an actual kids menu.

This restaurant is wonderful. Service is friendly and fast. Food is perfectly cooked. It is VERY busy so you may have to wait for a table.

A bit quirky, upscale, a bit spendy. If you want to try the sweet potatoes cheese cake make sure you tell your server asap... They make a limited number of cheese cakes and the slices go FAST! It's worth it to try the collard green appetizer too... I thought I would hate it; but, it's addictive. Plan on spending a... More

Love their food, and the atmosphere was fun! I mostly enjoyed their one of a kind sweat-potato fries! They were to die for. My wife enjoyed one of there mushroom burgers saying it was better than she had tasted in a long while. Only wish I had had room to sample a piece of there sweet-potato pie. Definitely next trip?...

Was not aware of what can be done with a sweet potato. I thought my dish was great until my wife shared a bit of hers. Very very good! As mentioned its a small place with the tables packed in but the staff was quick to respond to our needs. Was disappointed when the waitress through away my Lacroix water... More
