Fantastic food and service. Very comfortable atmosphere. We sat at the bar, the wait staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The bartender gave my husband a sampling of all the local brews on tap and told us where we could go find them. The owner was friendly and had a great understanding of food allergies and dietary restrictions.... More

I had high expectations and was not disappointed. My husband and I arrived shortly after 5:00 on a Saturday, and were happy to get a table on the small side. There's not much room inside, but it felt nice and cozy. There were so many wonderful choices, we both had difficulty making up our minds. I had the Mediterranean Portobellos... More

There were so many wonderful things here that I must go back again and again. Fresh, locally grown fare. It's a little hole in the wall that elevates Southern food to the best level. Not pricey and not pretentious. Just delicious. I had the Southern Pride BLT. Local bacon, fresh pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes. Brussels Slaw and Kettle... More

I have been here twice and loved the food both times. The fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwich is amazing. They also have hard boiled egg specials each day which are good. The mint iced tea was good, but it didn't not taste much like mint. The desserts change frequently and are delicious.

I don't know why Lunch or Supper doesn't show up earlier on the best restaurants list! We loved this place. The food and the atmosphere were great. The dishes were all unique but also had a familiar, southern taste.

I went for lunch with my family and we were pleasantly surprised by the food. The Fay, Lyons Den, and Southern Pride BLT were all delicious. This is a solid place to eat lunch without breaking the bank.

But it wasn´t living up to all of the hype for us when we tried it. I really wanted to love it and have it knock my socks off... it was just pretty good. We had the crab dip appetizer, which was an okay dip but the fresh flatbread was the real winner here. Unfortunately, what you're paying all the... More

Super small and quaint... food is fantastic, atmosphere is friendly and staff is on point! Get the Freedom Fighter sandwich or catch the special at dinner... Hell... it really does not matter what you order, because chances are it is delicious!!! Great beer selection, and fantastic deserts to boot! A must try in my book!!!

Went for a group lunch - there are actually a couple of related but separate portions of the restaurant with a quite small "Lunch" section and a separate "Lunch | Supper" area a couple of doors down. I went to the latter which is still a bit small but seats larger parties of 6 or more. Full bar, clean and... More
