    Great spot! Order the bacon and fried cheese curd apps!!! Side of corn bread is very good. Shrimp and grits was good -must like cilantro (?) key lime pie is very strong and flavor quickly gets tired.

    We love the Classic Cask 20 year, but at $150 for 2oz, it is a little pricey. For something splendid without the high price, try the Woodford Reserve. If whiskey isn't your thing, they also have wine.
