    And if you have the room for it, the risotto grits are also amazing.

    Fried chicken for sure, every part, even the white meat was moist. The crispy potatoes and Brussels sprouts are excellent sides to go with it.

    If you come at 11am you will miss the typical brunch crowd. Fried chicken and biscuit is pretty legit though the salad is a bit sour for most people

    It's supposed to be about the chicken, but the grits is where it's at. And the thick cut bacon.

    The half chicken was perfect for two, along with a few sides of course. Get the flight of champagne and compare; you really CAN taste the difference!

    The fried chicken is super fresh; they pull it through batter and it goes straight in a cast iron skillet full of canola oil. Delicious.

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner is a solid fried chicken meal for 4 people, plenty of food. Come late in the evening and enjoy samples of the nearly finished bottles as they clear them out for the night.

    Solid fried chicken at a reasonable price. Yes, the potato salad is bomb and more like a home fry salad than the creamy stuff you'd expect

    Not up for the champagne and whole chicken? Try the Runner Up - Half Chicken, 3 sides, and a bread basket. The Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts are a must. Great for birthdays!

    An all-bets-are-off date spot from the woman behind City Grit. And what you’re going to find, in no particular order, is a lot of Southern delicacy. Also, a pretty delightful patio.

    Chicken is good, but forget the rest. Sides are small and greasy, the Punch was like water. Outside patio is nice, but they made it difficult to make a reservation meanwhile the place was empty.

    I really want to like it but the food under-delivers in so any ways. Bad portioning, bad pairings, bad 'concept' entrees.

    Whole chicken gets you a basket of bread/biscuits & 3 sides (Potato salad, coleslaw, vidalia sides all A+). BANANA PUDDING, a must. Pickled shrimp changes the gazpacho game. Did I mention the patio?
