Ate there three times while vacationing for a week. Fabulous Shrimp and Grits (made with local shrimp) Everything we ate there was prepared well and was delicious. Staff was very friendly and treated you like a regular! Can't wait to go back.

We love this place so much. NOTHING compares from the delicious food to the warm service, you can't beat it. There isn't anything I wouldn't recommend eating there. You can really tell they put a lot of time and love into everything they create.
