Tonight was a nightmare. We had a reservation for 8 to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. One of our party was late (potato festival parking), but we ordered appetizers to share while we waited. Waitress was inattentive -- we had to look for her...More

Weeknight dinner on business travel with coworkers. Nice service and the scallops dinner special was outstanding. This was first visit but I come to Elizabeth City quarterly and I will be back here. A nice find!

Get the Hoppin John. The pork cheek was so tender it literally fell apart and the sauce was so good I spooned it all up after the rice and black eyed peas were gone. Great fast service.

My brother recommended this place for dinner for the Shrimp and Grits, as this is a dish we try everywhere we go. I can honestly say it was the best of anywhere I've tried. The grits were perfectly creamy and topped with tender shrimp, peppers,...More
