The food was delicious, I had the herb crusted pork roast and my son had the grilled chicken tenderloins. He cleaned his plate. Ordered the bread pudding and it was amazing! Staff was very nice. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed dinner here while staying one night on JI. It was busy but they were able to seat us quickly. The menu had some more unusual choices and we enjoyed the fried green tomato sandwich.

The meals and wine prices are very reasonable. It is not five star dining. The atmosphere is definitely simple, the food is average southern fare, but it gets crowded on weekends due to its consistent menu. Great for families.

This is a charming restaurant with a friendly staff and very good food. A bottle of house Cabernet was inexpensive and very good. They bag the bottle for you to take if you don't finish it. Fried green tomatoes and sweet potatoe soufflé a must!
