In town getting my kids stuff for college and was in the Target and drove around the area looking for chow. It came down to this place or the pizza place so we tried this one. Some good southern food on the menu. I had the ham hock (pork shank) that was deep fried I think with collard greens and sweet potato wedges instead of the mashed potatoes it normally comes with as suggested by the server. My only complaint is it should be a two ham hock dinner. I had some Texas Pete (the best hot sauce btw) on the side to dip the meat in which was crispy outside and meaty inside. The collard greens were not bitter but had a. sweet taste to them and I was telling my kid that I used to eat them with vinegar growing up but none was needed. The sweet potato wedges were thick and really good. My kid had BLT and she liked it. I may have to come back here again before I leave and try the catfish dish they have. Great food and service.

We had a really nice lunch with Meagan taking great care of us, really asked all the right questions about the GF allergy. We started with the pimento goat cheese dip which had a great balance of flavor. My daughter had shrimp and grits that she loved. I had the grilled romaine salad with shrimp that was also delish - I did think it was heavy in the dressing and served in a plate that was too small. Armed with just a lunch knife I had a big workout trying to cut it up and keep it on the plate. That being said, I’d order it again but on a larger plate.

First time eating there. The salmon plate was pretty good. Now, the ribeye steak was fully cooked, not medium, as we asked. Service was basic. Quite small place.

I stop by this restaurant several times a year and enjoy their seasonal dishes throughout. Eat dessert first - favorites include the chocolate torte. The bread basket is served with a special butter blend. Our favorite is the berry butter, and today, we tried the peach butter. Tried the cheeseburger and meatloaf. Next time, trying the BLT.

I had never tasted She Crab Soup. It was so good, so rich and savory. I've been looking to find it ever since I had it here but cannot which saddens me.

Wow! The Fish & Chips are fantastic! Perfectly Fried fish with the perfect French fries. The flavor they can put in a white fish alone is worth the trip here. The Shrimp Tacos are the best in the state. It comes with a corn salad that will kerp you coming back for that alone. You must try a North Carolina beer with your meal. Ask for Jake! A1+ waiter.

My first visit on a Thursday night for dinner was great. The hostess was very friendly and my waitress, Summer, was both friendly and genuine. The food was phenomenal; the crispy chicken sandwich had a lot of flavor and it wasn’t overly breaded (appeared more grilled than fried). I also tried the she crab soup at the recommendation of my waitress, and devoured it. The meat was tender and the soup had a lot of flavor. I really enjoyed the whole meal and experience. My second visit on the following Monday (Memorial Day) for lunch, on my way back out of town, was less than desirable. The host was cold, but offered me options to sit just about anywhere in the restaurant, which I appreciated. Same went for my waiter. Though he did a great job for the standard spiel, I did not feel welcome at all and I finished my food quickly to leave the uncomfortable situation. The same crispy chicken sandwich wasn’t as good the second time either, it was heavily breaded which I felt like took away from a lot of the flavor I’d loved before.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal last night. She crab soup was most tasty. The Grilled Watermelon appetizer with spicy sauce was a nice surprise. Pork shank was very moist and flavorful. Meatloaf with sauce delighted my palate. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We had to go to the Apple Store at Southpoint and this was super close by for Brunch! It was delicious!! I had the spicy honey fried chicken biscuit (SO GOOD). My daughter loved the French toast and my little one thoroughly enjoyed the Mac and cheese. It was extra cheesy! Our waitress was excellent, the food came quick. It’s small inside so make a reservation in advance. Definitely will be back!

I enjoyed dinner here alone. The service was quick and the ambience was pleasant. I ordered the cornmeal-crusted catfish with cheesy grits and green beans. Overall, it was a good meal, but I found it heavy for what I was looking for. I b would still recommend this place though - there were a lot of people eating the burgers. Maybe they know something I didn't know?
