I have drove by this place many times thinking I want to try it sometime. while passing thru on business recently "2" different folks mentioned it so we made it a point to try it.

Atmosphere is quaint and open, casual to dressy...outside seating available . Staff very friendly, but a little slow in the service area of serving the table.

FOOD, this is what took us back a bit. We ordered the Shrimp grits, Baja tacos', Thai lettuce wraps, and key lime pie. (They were out of both braised beef items?) The menu is quite diverse so we weren't sure how things would come out. This menu, has depth from the kitchen! The flavors on the Shrimp & Grits, rivaled most. My better half stated that the Thai Lettuce wraps were probably the best she has ever had and the tacos, well another home run.

Key lime pie was very creamy with a graham cracker crust...really good but this type crust is not my preference while it is most common.

We plan to return and have recommended to others. Probably the best location we have found in Lynchburg to this point.

Found this place while in town for college drop off. Did the 9 for 9 special and had the hot pot and it was so very good. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful leisure lunch. Great local spot. Patio along Washington Street was a tad noise - ask for deck patio seating. They have two.

Ate dinner here. Had a salmon Caesar salad. It was mediocre. My husband had cheese steak sandwiches which was average. Service was very good and waiter very friendly.

Went on a Monday in late July and ordered Blackened Mahi Mahi and upgraded to roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts.
Great Meal! Mahi Mahi was properly cooked and the seasone potatoes with the crispy, caramelized brussel sprouts with a balsamic reduction was great.
I also had some of the 5 dollar early bird cocktail specials - nothing "wowed" me but they were fine.
Bar area is getting a little tired with worn spots and chipped areas showing more and more - time for a little maintenance.
