We were there two days after the snow/ice storm that hit Charleston and the East coast. It was cold and icey. The manager did everthing to make us feel welcome. The appetizers were great but the general menu was even better.

Our grand daughter loves Forrest Gump so we went to his place. The food was good, the staff were fun and it was a great fun. The decor delighted our grand daughter. The prices didn't break the bank either.
