Our food ( chicken, BBQ ribs) was not fresh...had been warmed up...tough and chewy. Because of warming up, not delivered together. Shrimp gumbo ...more like tomato soup...4 shrimp in large bowl. Hoping for unique spices , tasty Gullah ( soul) food...not so...won't return.

This was a gem of a place to find! My children had been there with their school and we returned. All the food is local and delicious.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. I love 'Southern' fare and had checked out the menu online in advance. We were incredibly disappointed. The menu in the restaurant had crossed out She Crab Soup (what I wanted), and substituted chicken gumbo. They were out...More

We heard about this place from a tv show and since we were in Beaufort SC, we decided to try it. It was rainy and a slow day, so they were about to close early. I’m SO glad they were still open! The shrimp gumbo...More

The menu varies with what is fresh and available. Much of the food comes from the owner's farm. The rest is locally sourced.. As far as gluten free; the cook has a great repertoire, and I am sure that they will... More
