                                                              Sunday brunch was disappointing. Chicken in a sandwich was very dry. Pancakes were served cold, though I sent them back and got hot ones. Service was not that attentive due to crowds.

                                                              On a Sunday night, it wasn't too busy, so not too loud. The food and drinks were very tasty and nicely presented. I chose three appetizers instead of a starter and an entree, and all were enjoyable - tuna taquitos, gnocchi, and calamari. Spouse enjoyed gnocchi and rockfish. The service was a bit too attentive. Three friendly servers took turns popping up at our table, apparently without coordinating with each other. At first it was just amusing, but at one point, as a server apologized for interrupting, I was in mid-sentence and completely lost my train of thought. We'll come back, but next time I will hold off the check-in while I finish my sentence!

The Rockfish was yummy , but the blueberry balsamic on the duck was even better. We loved them both and the strawberry lemon curd dessert thing was a piece of art !

                                                              This restaurant was absolutely amazing. From the food and drinks to the service. The owner, stopped by our table and spent an extensive amount of time explaining all of the different bourbons to us. They have 48 bourbons 😬. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Small business and women owned👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 very impressed. Will be back soon to try other items on the menu!

                                                              The menu here is good. They combine several staples with dishes that they change up to take advantage of the ingredients that are in season (seafood, veggies, etc.). One thing I really like about the entrees is that they intregrate veggies with the protein and sauce. I have never had a dish here that I didn't like.

The service was non-intrusive; yet, the waiter checked back frequently and promptly delivered on every request. We would definitely return.

                                                              I had the spicy shrimp and grits, which was good and flavorful, and the crème brûlée (my favorite-although I don’t know what made it white chocolate). My friend and I shared crab beignets which had a lot of crab and was cheesy and tasty. We also had fried calamari in a generous portion and a nice green sauce. Service was also great! The restaurant is darker than I thought it would be with tables somewhat close to each other but, for a small group, it’s not a big deal. I would come again.
