Nice outdoor seating. We moved from the shaded table to a nice sunny area to eat our meal. We were craving food and a drink. Southern came through on both counts. Not knock your socks off, but solid on both counts. Delicious chicken legs that...More

I had an enjoyable evening here recently. The menu is appealing. The service is great. The location is good for people watching if you choose to dine outside. I would definitely dine here again.

Had an amazing meatloaf meal here and some southern style drinks. The meatloaf meal consisted of thin meatloaf stuffed with provolone & spinach, garlic-rosemary smashed Potatoes, mushroom sage gravy with collard greens. Tasty.
