Charming dining room, delicious food, great service & prices! In an area known for shrimp & grits, the best can be found here! Very reasonable bottles of wine, too.

Fair. Haven't been there in about 3 years. Good prices, small portions available. Stuffed flounder tasteless, shrimp creole awful. Good sides and bread. Bad wines by glass. Nice people. Too many decent places to go back.

I'm sorry but we do not take reservations. It is recommended that you get here at 5 when we open and we can pretty much accommodate you at that point.
