I was extremely disappointed with the wait time for a table being that I called ahead asking if reservations were necessary. Once there I could see why they weren't. Very small quarters the tables are right on top of one another and honestly you touch elbows from time-to-time. The cold draft from the door opening made it difficult to enjoy yourself while wearing your coat.

The food was NOWHERE near what I expected after reading the reviews. The greens over cooked, yams tasteless and mac & cheese that of a box. At first I thought it was just me, but my entire party felt the same about their meals for which we all tried something different (meats and sides). I can say we all agreed my catfish was ok, but small. The staff seem to be disorganized and slow beyond belief. I say cook it yourself, save your money and let your elbows fly at home.

Cozy and inviting ambiance. Good catfish- blackened or fried.
