Sydney Meers plays up his Mississippi heritage at every turn, the decor, the art, the menu, the website, the "cozy" layout, and the food. It's clear from Sydney's pedigree that he's not a bumpkin from the deep south, but instead a businessman whose looking to...More

Can't say enough about Stove. From the artisan bread and peppered butter, to the shrimp and grits...everything was delicious. The relish on the cheese plate was my favorite, so much that I ordered a pound of it to go. Will definitely visit again.

Fair food. Eclectic decor. Too crowded. Not much ambiance.Too much pork dishes. Did not have a memorable evening.
