Enjoyed a great dinner on a Saturday night. All my favorites in one plate -- Crab Cakes, Sweet Potato Fries and Hush Puppies, all prepared great! Nice environment and we had a very attentive and polite server.

We had dinner here, was able to get in without reservations as we went early evening. We both had the salmon with crab, corn risotto. Everything including the hush puppies was excellent. We took a slice of peanut butter pie with us. Very good.

We had shrimp and grits (excellent, ask for sauce on the side -you will get a soup sized portion) and mussels which were very decent, but not excellent. The place is nice - exposed brick

Excellent offerings from chicken to shrimp to salads. Unique though, not same old offerings. Staff was great and the specials were worth it.
