Came here for brunch on a Sunday. Ordered chicken and waffles. It's the worst chicken and waffles I've had. Worse than Brenda's, worse than Farmer Brown's. Chicken was dry and very salty. Waffles is nothing special. Overall, it tastes like something you can buy frozen...More

Ate here the other night w/ a friend & had another wonderful meal. Our server was attentive & didn't rush us at all. Had the shrimps & grits & fried chicken. The portions are nice & a good value for the price.

We were a larger party in for a late meal. Busy surroundings on a Saturday, but very positive energy. Good and personal service. Smaller or larger meals for everyone. Great drinks! Also not too pricey.
