Heading from Jacksonville to Atlanta this is an excellent halfway point for a break. We stopped for lunch and were utterly charmed by the place and the people and the food. Have the Devilled Eggs.

Grilled romaine salad, and entrees of crispy eggplant, and a braised beef and these will not disappoint. Great dinner tonight. When you are traveling it is difficult to eat well. Either you are in a rush or you are not close to a restaurant like...More

Our food scored fives all the way across. We started our meal with the pulled pork deviled eggs and bruschetta. Both were incredibly unique and delicious. The braised short ribs were tender and succulent. Can’t wait to go back.
