Decor is nice enough; crab cakes were burnt and the sweet potatoes ok. The bartender and service were ok, but the restroom on the first floor was filthy with poop stains. Won't eat here again.

This place is the best restaurant on King St. The Southern Sampler was my favorite. The wife absolutely loved the GF Crab Cakes. We loved this place so much, we ate there twice! Excellent hospitality as well!

Can't get enough of their wings and fried catfish. If you want true southern cuisine then Hen Quarter is the place.

Came here with colleagues on a business trip. We came a bit close to closing, but everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We had some great appetizers, especially the biscuits and the hush puppies. The chicken and waffles were wonderfully crisp, sweet, and savory. The...More
