    Food was awesome. It tasted like someone granny was in the kitchen.The service was not so good. Didn't feel welcomed and the waiter was not at tentative. Don't sit outside if its hot. Not enough fans.

    Tried 3 appetizers for the table and all were great. Deviled eggs, corn muffins and pimento cheese.

    The pot roast of short ribs looks absolutely amazing! It is braised overnight from apple cider and cider vinegar. And you can pick your vegetable sides.

    Try the Parmesan Truffle Fries - This was my favourite bit of an excellent meal. (via @Foodspotting)

    JCT’s version of deviled eggs is prepared simply with Benton’s ham and a sprinkling of extra virgin olive oil. Classic, delicious and everything that eggs should be. Read more

    Best fried chicken I've ever had at a restaurant. Get it

    One of Ford Fry's greatest. The fried chicken is delish, but there is lighter fare that is equally great: fish of the day, puréed veggie soups. Just don't forget the truffle fries.

    Super good southern comfort food downstairs. Upstairs a completely different vibe

    Get the chicken and dumplings and don't look back.

    The daily specials are to die for. I had the Mahi Mahi with roasted beet purée and wilted kale. Bliss!

    Fantastic fried green tomatoes. Not greasy, & tomatoes were firm. Pimento cheese on it was excellent, & I'm not even a pimento cheese fan. Good hot sauce, too.

    The oysters, salmon and wine, divine.

    They don't serve fried chicken in the upstairs bar area. Slightly disappointing but made up quickly by the deviled eggs, devils on horseback (get these!), and mussels.

    Head over to this West Side favorite and start upstairs at the bar for cocktails before heading indoors for dinner.

    The deviled eggs make me weep with happiness.

    Sunday dinner was wonderful as always but Coca Cola cake disappoints. Fried chicken and creamy whipped potatoes are fabulous as is the roasted corn on the cob and heirloom tomatoes.

    Oh and the deviled eggs are the best too. Like from heaven

    Overpriced. The trout was bland and TINY. Fried green tomatoes were great. Fried Chicken was good, but the beans were not. Save your money.
