  • The biscuits and gravy are good but are small portions. You have been warned.
  • If chicken pot pie is a special, order it!! It was absolutely perfect and enough for two people to share (w/ two sides). Apple cobbler was great, but a very large serving. Split it with friends.
  • If the pot pie special is chicken, get it. Even if you've only ever had Stouffer's. It even beats the fried chicken.
  • The shrimp and grits is excellent. One of the best in town.
  • Try the fried chicken. You won't regret it.
  • My favorite place for comfort food lunches and meaty sandwiches. The fruit cobblers and pies are top notch and have perfect pastry crust.
  • Shrimp and grits - to die for. Not enough shrimp though! Ask for the whiskey flights special for a taste of the best bourbon. The blackened catfish and Brussel sprout bacon hash are amazing!
  • Share the fruit clobber for dessert. It's huge.
  • Outstanding. Mixers have strong attention to detail and service (I.e. you won't wait 10 min for your cocktail).
  • Great selection of whiskey.
  • Amazing pulled pork sandwich!.
  • Best Fried chicken in town- and great live music on certain nights! Collard greens are also fantastic. Yum!
  • Ask for your meats with the sauce on the side
  • Southern style food. Yummy
  • Whisky selection. Soup
  • Try the courthouse
  • Knowledgable cocktail creators. Black-Eyed Pea hummus was Fergilicious.
  • Excellent scotch selection and live music on Saturday. Not to be missed.
  • Soulful vibe, a great stop for a drink on the mall. Little higher class vibe then other pubs on the mall. Good selection of local craft brews
  • Try the cornbread, it is Amazing!!!!
