The fried green tomatoes and shrimp po boys were delicious! The restaurant looks nicely updated, and I’ve seen only a few restaurants with an exposed kitchen in the front. Very cool. I’d highly recommend this restaurant if you’re ever in, or stopping through, Valdosta. The...More

I'm not actually sure if they take reservations. It shouldn't be necessary. I wouldn't worry about making a reservation unless I wanted to make sure I got a particular table, such as a streetview table on the roof, or had a... More
