    Pretty much everything is good here. The shrimp grits are AMAZING!! The she crab soup is a MUST, the collard greens are GREAT! The bread is awesome, so is the snapper. Great staff. Go hungry 😄

    Awesome service, and the she-crab soup is a must try! It was amazing, especially with the bread. Their bread is my favorite- like a cross between a French bread and white cornbread. SO. GOOD.

    The complimentary collard greens lived up to the hype!! Those along with the warm freshly baked bread and the appetizer portion of shrimp and grits made for a perfect meal. Hubby loved the crab cakes!

    Get the she crab soup!!! Fantastic. You may want to request that chef put less salt in/on your meal if you don't want too salty food -- a bit heavy-handed, but maybe that's how they do it down south.

    The food at the old school seafood joint is just that - old school and a bit dated. But the She Crab soup is still a solid winner!

    Had the blackened snapper with key like butter sauce (not on the menu), collard greens and grits with bread. There was nothing that wasn't delicious.

    The Hawaiian Steak is the most massive, beautifully cut and marinated I've had in my extensive experience. The flavor outranks Ruth's Chris

    Go for an appetizer trio. She crab soup, shrimp and grits and then crab cake. Great trio.

    Shrimp and grits..more like grit soup..taste okay.. But shrimp too small and too few with grits being very saucy. Not award winning as time Motor City

    The grit cakes were dry and overly Salted. The asparagus Spears were grilled correctly but the chef did not have a deft hand with the salt again. The salmon was medium and was properly Seasoned.
