We enjoyed our lunch although there were a couple of hiccups. Food was good but hamburger was a little overcooked & bacon was missing. They got real busy so I’ll assume that’s why.

Outstanding! My husband had the steak pormodoro- cooked perfectly with amazing cream sauce. And you must get the bread pudding!

I’ll start by saying the food and drinks were delicious. Bread pudding was phenomenal. However, I do want to point out that I didn’t feel the restaurant was “Covid safe.” While most of the staff were wearing masks properly, there was no enforcement of customers...needing to wear masks when not seated at their table. Multiple customers walked by our table unmasked while we had food and drink exposed. Additionally, while our waitress was sweet, her mask was extremely loose and was oftentimes under her nose, or if it was covering her nose, it had an inch wide gap and wasn’t actually effective in its purpose. It was discouraging to see.More

My husband and I selected this restaurant based on reviews posted on Trip Advisor. Believe me, when I tell you it was the right choice. We were seated out on the patio (at our request) the weather was nice (65 degrees) and the food and...drinks were delicious. We started out with a Ruby Red Mule cocktail (the best cocktail ever) and a cheese board (delicious). He had shrimp Alfredo fettuccine and I had the Rock n Roll shrimp poboy on Leidenheimer bread (a little spicer than the classic poboy, but definitely not overpowering). It had just the right amount of kick. Bread wasMore

Driving through Alexandria on our RV trip. Looking for late dinner on Trip Advisor and this was #2. We were glad to see they were masked and distanced. Our server was Mykal, very efficient and friendly. We had the deviled eggs, brisket spring rolls and...spinach salad. We loved the drizzle over the eggs and told Mykal - she brought us a nice size to go container of it, no charge. Everything was delicious and well-presented. There were several other apps we wanted to try - maybe next time!More

Their food is delicious! Appetizers are what we ended eating, the fried green beans, wings, and best deviled eggs I’ve ever had with chicken and bacon jam on them was superb! The steak philly egg roll was very good but it’s two cut in half...only. The watermelon spritzer was nice too. A bit pricey but no more than the others in the area. Nice area inside or outside seating. Wait was supposed to be 30min and was more like 10. Busy on Friday night so get there early.More

They are doing a good job with social distancing, and due to good weather we were able to eat outside on the patio. We enjoyed the food (a little pricey). My husband had a seafood platter, which was good. However, the menu just said fried...fish, and he was disappointed that it wasn't catfish. But overall, we enjoyed ourselves and had a lovely view.More

We made a special stop passing through just because of the tripadvisor reviews. Did not disappoint. The hot spinach dip was so good I was full before my lunch arrived. The muffaletta was huge and very tasty.
