I ate lunch here on my way to the airport headed home from a business trip in the area. The food was hearty and very good and the service was good as well. Not pretentious but just good food.

Excellent Food but prepare to wait, even for takeout on weekends or holidays. But the food is ALWAYS worth the wait and expect service with a smile.

While the restaurant has good food with a number of gluten free options (separate gluten free menu available), it wasn't a "WOW!!" A place to go if you are in the neighborhood. Service was prompt and pleasant.

Portions are enough to take a "doggy bag". The she crab soup is absolutely delicious and I always order the fish, fried to perfection.The cole slaw is always fresh, and always great service.

There is no dress code, regular dress attire. Can get gift certificates as far as I know and still one of favorites to go. They have no delivery service. Best time to go, anytime.
