Country-style barbecue & seafood in a no-fuss eatery with weekend & lunch buffet specials.- Google

Don't let the outside fool you. This place is fantastic. The food is incredible!!! Art's passion shows in every dish and his enthusiasm is contagious. I had the side buffet and would recommend to all. The collards were prepared perfectly and the fried green tomatoes were on point! Thank you Art

Just love when Art fills his bathtub with Ice from a local fastfood joint and has a party. Always carry your bible with your poor family pictures, works every time

Just plain GOOD, fresh seafood, delicious ribs & sides, all with the added bonus of the show that is Art. The Friday and Saturday night buffet is where it's at, and the blackened shrimp they he serves at the end of the night are simply to die for!

"Arrive with an empty stomach" per directions from Art, the chef himself. The chef's personality, passion, food, and experience is priceless. He is not easily forgotten. Reservations recommended, arrive early, and don't eat until the dinner bell rings. Later, the chef announces "hot shrimp", and you are served from an iron skillet. Everything is made from scratch, and the dessert melts in your mouth. Be there.

If you never have tasted Southern Fried cooking you need to make a reservation for this weekend now! I can insure that you will not only come back to eat again and again, but Larry and Brandon are the best wait staff Ever! And if you have not met Art, you are in for a treat! Bring a camera as well as a humongous appetite!

I was really looking forward to this. We arrived at 1:30 on Saturday afternoon when they were supposed to be open until 3:00 p.m. They weren't. A fellow wearing a cook's apron came outside to say they were open at 5:00. No other explanation. I'm not happy to have taken a cab from downtown for this. One of my pet restaurant peeves is a restaurant that isn't open when advertised. Even if a patron arrives 5 minutes before closing, you're open. Don't say you aren't. But hell 1.5 HOURS! Unless you live next door, why risk it? No chance I'll try this place again.
