    Outdoor seating was perfect for a beautiful Saturday brunch. The food is seasoned well, but the portions are smaller than I'd like. The catfish fingers were good, but tiny pieces. Shrimp n grits comes w large shrimp, but very little grits. We added chicken sausage links to the dish. Keylime pie tasted freshly made, chocolate cake was moist w thin layers of fudge icing. Service was ok, our waitress made our requests do-able (like adding sausage to the grits), but it came out as a separate order. We were not impressed, but overall we had a good experience.

    Blackened Salmon and Shrimp and Chicken Pasta. Such a great taste! Wonderful music, atmosphere, people, and view. The ambiance was a vibe. Can't wait to go back.

    All of the managers are very pleasant and friendly. My server Mike is always kind and professional. I've had two events at this location. It's a great place to have networking events. The atmosphere is Awesomeness.

    Made it a point to visit again when we were into town since the food and service was outstanding the first. Servers know the menu well and have great suggestions. This time that we went in burgers were 1/2 off on Mondays so that’s what we ordered. Turkey burger and veggie this time. Our first visit we got shrimp with grits and kale quinoa salad. Both times got jalapeño cheddar grits are great❤️

    We came to this location last month as my now brother in law planned a surprise engagement proposal for my sister during their open mic night. We drove down from Jersey to be there in support of them. The venue is dope very “cool kids hang out here” vibes. It was like a cross between a Barnes and nobles and a restaurant which was dope. To the back, is their event space which was theater style with its own bar. The blackness was felt and the poets dropped hella knowledge and facts that night. The servers seemed overwhelmed as it took us about 15 mins to place a drink order and the waiter looked like he’d just come out of a whirlwind and was regaining himself lol. We ordered the beets salad, catfish nuggets and a salmon dish. The catfish nuggets were flakey and melted in our mouths and the tartar sauce was a great compliment. The beets salad was so delicious and everything tasted fresh. I didn’t get to try the salmon dish but my mom said it was good. The waiter that brought out our dishes you would tell he was over his shift that day. He came and quite literally dropped the plates down in front of us. We just looked at each other and in true fashion of US, we laughed over the scenarios that could’ve been occurring as to why he just dropped our plates like that. Lmao. We didn’t have utensils so I had to ask him for some and when he returned it was the same dropping down of the utensils in front of us. Like sorry Sir…my bad for asking for utensils!! I didn’t hold it against any of them it was just one of those nights and it happens. If I lived in the area I would go back to try more things on the menu because everything sounded good.
