We came across this bar (on our way to another bar), and on a whim decided to stop. I am really glad we did. This simple bar had a decent draft beer selection, and a good whiskey selection (nothing like some of the others, but...More

This was our 6th and final stop of our bar crawl. I had the bourbon barrel stout and it was great. Lindsee was our bartender and she was sweet. Very nice place and location.

This was a nice find. The food was really great, with lots of food from local and regional farms. They had a pork special that was delicious, and my friend had the shrimp and grits, also delicious. Great wine list!

I was here with a group business associates. They each had the fish and chips. They all agreed it was delicious. I had shrimp and goat cheese grits-absolutely delicious! Portions are large which means there is enough for a second meal. The staff was knowledgeable...More
