Great food, friendly staff, marvelous location, local ambiance. What more to ask? Be sure to order the Low Country Gumbo; it is superb, and is served with freshly-made cornbread muffins. It is a meal in itself.

lunchtime middle of the week. I looked at the menu, but just stuck with the "meat and three". Fried chicken and veggies. Everything had great taste and was not overcooked. Service was great. I loved talking with all the locals. I will definitely be back.
