We had a great time! The servers are friendly and professional. The ambiance is warm and low country.
The food is quite exceptional and prepared with passion.
We had wonderful cream of mushroom soup and the best lightli fried calamari ever, on a nice bed of greens. The tuna was superb....and so was the always popular and very delicious jumbo scallops baked in a cheese and herb sauce. Wow!
Deserts also fabulous but we were stuffed! A great place!

Thank Peter B

A great place to have dinner if you really like to talk with the people at the table; no loud music or crowd to compete with. The service was top notch as was the generous portions of food.

This place is so quaint and romantic. It's hidden behind a great oak
Huge portions and great staff. Hope it stays a secret so I can have it all to myself

There aren't many tables but the atmosphere is almost like walking back into a more genteel era and attending a small dinner party at someone's Victorian home. It was quaint and intimate feeling and there seemed to be just one waiter. Was it the owner? The dishes were more inventive than many and the favors were rich and sumptuous. We got a lot of personal attention from our waiter who seemed to be genuinely concerned that we were happy with each thing we ordered. He recommended a good wine and was helpful without being obtrusive.

This was lovely. The restaurant is quaint and the food is strictly fine dinning. The Mediterranean Bake was so delicious. My husband had the Buffalo Meatloaf. Presentation for both was lovely. Taste was a treat. Portions were very generous. We will return.
