Never had anything bad from this place. They have good happy hour specials too! Love that they added the family section. Now only of they would move closer to the water front!

Willing to give another try, but I ordered Shrimp and Grits and it was awful. Wouldn't want to judge on one dish, but if you're thinking of the traditional southern dish - don't bother
