This place is a great place for dinner! We had the Blue Crab and Pepper Jack Fondue Nachos as an appetizer. I had the Beef Tips En Croute, it was simply amazing. Our waiter was fabulous too!

Enjoyed a fabulous meal at Sassafras - expert service, perfectly prepared Salmon with lump crab cake and the creamiest Southern-style grits I've had - and I'm Southern born and bred! Will definitely return!
