Like bed this place. It is so inviting, open and airy feeling. Definitely a 50's vibe but in a cool not kitschy way. The food was fantastic. At my table we had fried catfish, St.Louis style ribs, chicken fingers, Cesar salad and salmon patties. All...More

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
