Went here for a customer dinner and the experience was fantastic. I would suggest the meat / cheese board as they are outstanding. All local products and wide assortment. All crackers, jellies and honey is all hand made and sourced locally. Great service and was...More

Incredible! We are well traveled and this was one of our best dinners, ever! Oysters, special. Red drum was very nice and the pork, fantastic! Soft shell crab, very nice. The wine and cocktails, excellent. Hats off to our special waiter, Eric!

The food was well prepared, if uninteresting, but one problem persisted throughout: Over salted. We had the pork shank, fish, and steak bavette. They were all cooked nicely, but the level of salt approached inedible.

The restaurant was a delightful surprise. The menu’s eclectic options were splendid. Brussels arrived cool. They were quickly replaced and comped. My friend’s North Carolina flounder was fresh and firm. My charcuterie plate was amazing. The smoked blue fish and pastrami tongue along with each...More
