Foursquare Tips

  • The biscuits and gravy are good but are small portions. You have been warned.
  • Try the fried chicken. You won't regret it.
  • 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.
  • My favorite place for comfort food lunches and meaty sandwiches. The fruit cobblers and pies are top notch and have perfect pastry crust.
  • Share the fruit clobber for dessert. It's huge.
  • Killer fried chicken, strawberry shortcake, and whiskey cocktails. Bonus if you come when there's live music playing.
  • 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!
  • 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!!!!
  • The food is great. I had a fried catfish sandwich and the taste and texture were perfection.
  • Beer selection to go with the whiskeys!
  • Had the Shrimp and Grits. Very tasty. Grits were really good. My wife had the fried chicken and collard greens. Chicken was tasty, but not incredible. The collard greens were awesome.
