Excellent food and service. Owner Jay visits tables and is friendly as is the staff. We stop on our way to Florida as the restaurant is right off of 95. BTW Jay is a proud veteran. We thank him for his service.

Pricey but ok
Food was good, service could use some help. Mainly a steakhouse/ seafood restaurant. Prices are a little high.

Upon entering, my party of three was offered our choice in seating. We requested a booth but were instead stuffed into a small two-person table. The food was phenomenal, unfortunately it took a couple extra tries to get my porterhouse cooked to the correct temperature. I also had a small issue with the service because when I notified ... read more

I love the atmosphere and the customer service is very good but my husband and I both had the Shrimp Alfredo last night and we both agreed that it was very, very bland.

I was really excited to try this place based on the previous reviews.  It has amazing potential but unfortunately, it fell a bit short.  First off, I love the ambience.

Great local restaurant, my husband and I stopped in for dinner on our way through GA during our road trip...what a great experience, first time trying fried green tomatoes...delicious! Steak and lobster tail was perfect, and the chicken fried steak lived up to its fame. And our waitess Kalynn (spg?) was wonderful!!

Our hotel recommended 2 restaurants and this was the 1 we decided to try. We happened to get there during their "early dining" menu time. I had Prime Rib with salad bar and dessert for $17.95. The salad bar did not have many toppings, but the Prime Rib was OUTSTANDING! Where we live you would pay $27 to $40 for this meal.
