Came here for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The food and portion size were excellent. I had the fish and shrimp plate with greens and mac. The greens are indeed spicy but I loved them. My bf had a chicken sandwich and grits and hush puppies…also very good. My only main critique is that the strawberry lemonade was extremely sweet. Could used a little water. We will def be back. We want to try the breakfast items next.

Food is absolutely DELICIOUS! Service is a little slow, but it'll be worth the wait, believe me. Awesome atmosphere, I just completely love this place. I highly recommend the fish sandwich!

Customer service was on point, very friendly staff. I gave it a 3 because although the food was pretty good, I don’t plan to revisit. The food didn’t give me the you gotta get the girls together and come back, vibe. But it was on my list to visit, I went I ate I thank you for your services!

Delicious food! Had lunch here and ordered the Crispy Whiting plate which came with a couple of fried Whiting fish fillets (I asked for the fish to be fried hard) and two sides: I had the collard green and mac and cheese. The fish was seasoned well and crispy (although not completely boneless). The sides were also tasty. Plenty of tables inside for dining in.

I love this place. They have the best french toast I have ever had the pleasure of having. I also love their fried fish. On the downside I am not a fan of their mac n cheese or their candied yams. Overall though I really enjoy their food. The staff are also nice and helpful with recommendations and providing explanations. Oh also make sure you grab some banana pudding for dessert! So dang good.

I LOVE LOVE the food here! The French toast is a hidden treasure of the city! The salmon cakes make you want to order by the PAN! The atmosphere is contagiously joyful! If you’re in the area this is DEFINITELY a family friendly place to come.

For my first visit I didn't get the experience I was hoping for... I ordered spicy collard greens with the cajan fish sandwich and the collard did not have any spice, it was more of a garlic flavor. The portion was nice and the people were great. I will return again just because I believe in trying everything 3* before I make a decision.

First time here and I'm definitely coming back!!! Food was just stellar, amazing customer service and friendly atmosphere! I had the Cajun pasta with grilled chicken, the pulled BBQ chicken sandwich and the candied yams! To drink we got the Arnold Palmer Strawberry Lemonade or the S.A.P. Stellar!!

I heard great things about this restaurant. My mom, Aunt visiting from out of town, and I came here for lunch after a morning of sightseeing. My favorite dish was the French toast. The eggs and bacon that came with them were cooked pretty hard though. My mom ordered an egg over easy but it came out fried hard which is not what she requested. Her shrimp and grits were okay, according to her. My aunt had nothing to say about her food which says enough. Service was nice though.
