Food was decent. It was freezing inside. We were located near the front door. The heavy curtain didn't help. Was a little dissapointed by the collard greens. It was actually cream spinach. Bbq and crab cakes were delish.

Maybe think about choosing a different dinner spot. The fried green tomatoes were pre-packaged and deep fried. The shrimp in the shrimp and grits were very small and few. Pricing seemed a little high for what we were served. Stick with the sandwiches and if...More
