They have really good food and drinks here. If you're vegetarian, they typically do have at least a couple items on on their main menu. I really like coming here for brunch Saturday or Sunday between 10 - 2:30pm. Be warned, it can get really busy, so call or use open table and make a reservation. Entrees range from $23-$32 so if it's dinner for two with drinks, expect to pay around $100.

Best damn burger anywhere! The mac and cheese and collard greens with bacon are both fantastic as well.

This is a hidden gem. Seriously. Really good, fancy soul food is always an A+ in my book, and this place does fancy soul food well. Get the fried chicken. See that blurb next to the fried chicken on the menu? The one that says "truffled honey service?" What that means is a dude will accompany your plate of steaming hot fried chicken out to the table, armed with a Winnie-The-Pooh-style honey pot. He will then drizzle honey onto your hot fried chicken, which will render the honey melty and delicious. Then you eat that. You put that in your mouth, honey and all. What else could anyone ask for, really? The mint juleps are also really good.

Great Food!!!! The shrimp and grits ap was very tasty. The waitress kept trying to push the braised pork shank, but we went for the catfish and the fried chicken - both were fantastic. The banana pudding was so-so

A dinner with good friends, we met after a long work day at 5 without a reservation. There was a total of 6 us, 4 adults plus my two girls. I guess this wasn't a problem because we were there so early and there were very few tables filled. It wasn't until close to 7:30 when the place filled up. The theme for dinner was peaches. Drinks, dishes, and desserts. Starters seem to be more individualize dishes and not much for share, but we did share. I got the Crawfish & Mushroom étouffée, which had a very nice amount of heat. My friend got the Pan Roasted Pei Mussels, which was excellent, my favorite of all the starters, the broth was amazing. The only down side was that they didn't remove the unopened mussels. And lastly low country shrimp and grits, the grits was so creamy. One to our dishes, I got the Prather Ranch Berkshire pork chops, it was seasoned nicely and cooked just right. My friend's Buttermilk Southern Fried Chicken with a side of Goud Mac and Cheese was very good. the batter was done beautifully and mac and cheese was creamy, and the pasta was cooked just right. My other friends had the pork loin that was one of the specials. My girls has the Barbecued Atlantic Sterling Salmon that she polished the plate clean, and Southern Steak Frite. The both loved their dishes and wouldn't let me steal a bite. On to desserts, Ginger & Vanilla roasted Peach, Summer Berry Bread Pudding and Fried Peach pie. The bread pudding wasn't that good, it was too soggy, but the other two dishes was very good. Now the service, from the moment we sat down, Jill, gave us excellent service. You would think that server was become sparse when the crowd started filling the place up, but she continued to stop by to make sure we were happy and taking time to bring my girls stuff to do and chat with them. She was up beat and gave us good recommendations. I think this was one of the best service we got and she never ignored the kids and even gave them suggestions on their drinks.

Who knew southern food good be so expensive? Me neither but I guess when you are this far away from the real south, having to pay a little more to get something legit is understandable and this place is very legit. Definitely is the best fried chicken I have EVER had in my life! Biggest bourbon selection in town which is another plus for me.
