    Weather permitting, the patio is great. It was my first time having brunch and they make probably the best pancakes I've had in a restaurant ever.

    It's been said ad nauseam, but the Shrimp and Grits is amazing! Their specials are great, too. Be sure to try the frozen mint julep.

    Fried oyster appetizer is amazing. $16 but big portion good for sharing and some of the best fried oysters I've ever had.

    Definitely start with the cheese and cracker plate. The sampler is also good to split with a buddy or a lover

    Shrimp and grits was the truth. The French fries were also great. Prices are a bit high for the area though.

    1 draft beer, one grit entree plus 20% tip... almost $37. Should have ordered a steak!

    They won't give you a table for 1 outside - even if they have 10 (not exagerating) tables open. Would love to like this expensive place ($22.50 for ahrimp and grits), bit have to rate it ok.

    Go for brunch. Order hush-puppies for an app. Ice tea comes with wonderful simple syrup. Eggs New Burn for main course. Reward yourself with a mimosa. Read more

    Always a local classic, but after 20 years the food is getting a bit tired. Oh is also quite pricey.

    A chapel hill establishment. Great southern cooking. Try their house salad dressing. This simple item was my favorite part of dinner.

    Hostess is pretty rude, and they are horrible at managing their tables. Food is good at least.
