Food should not be political. Let me say this right up front. That being said I love the food and atmosphere of the Bistro. But yesterday I went in for lunch, left a tip as I always do, and found a table to eat my meal. It was later in the day so wasn't very busy, and I put the... More

Best southern food EVER!! The fried chicken is so tasty and the mac-n-cheese is the best in the south. Try the key lime cake.

We got there just before they were closing (6pm on Sunday!) so they had run out of a bunch of the sides and some of the entre's.

We come here a couple of times a year. The food is good and the portions are reasonable. Our first time here was a bit weird because when you checked out a couple of the ladies made remarks outloud. Since then it's been better.
