Foursquare Tips

  • All about the shrimp and grits!
  • Recommended: fried oysters, shrimp and grits, gumbo, sweetbreads, banana pudding, and homemade ice creams.
  • Try the frozen mint julep. Is a top notch drink.
  • It's been said ad nauseam, but the Shrimp and Grits is amazing! Their specials are great, too. Be sure to try the frozen mint julep.
  • Hostess is pretty rude, and they are horrible at managing their tables. Food is good at least.
  • Fried oyster appetizer is amazing. $16 but big portion good for sharing and some of the best fried oysters I've ever had.
  • Baked brioche French toast to die for.
  • Great place to eat before or after UNC games!
  • Took Megan's advice on the Eggs New Bern. Nice!
  • The honeysuckle sorbet!
  • Shrimp and grits was the truth. The French fries were also great. Prices are a bit high for the area though.
  • Eat outside on the patio!
  • Sit on the patio if you can and make sure to get the shrimp and grits.
  • Make reservations!! Cheese and cracker plate!! Pepper jelly was amazing!
  • Definitely start with the cheese and cracker plate. The sampler is also good to split with a buddy or a lover
  • Classic Southern fare, fun environment, nice patio.
  • The oyster and jalepeno hushpuppies are great bar food.
  • My favorites: Fried oysters and The shrimp n' grits
  • Always a local classic, but after 20 years the food is getting a bit tired. Oh is also quite pricey.
  • Fries are amazing!! Always fresh never frozen makes a huge different. The fries are plump and not full of air
