    Standouts include fried oysters over creamed spinach and killer desserts such as the dreamy tapioca pudding. Gracious service and a good wine program make up for the occasional misstep in the kitchen. Read more

    Try the truffle-parmesan fries. Great crispy fries with a soft interior dressed with true white truffle oil and parmesan shavings, it doesn’t get much better than that Read more

    On Sunday night they do a "Sunday Dinner." $24 per person buys you Biscuits, deviled eggs, salad, a meat selection (per person) and 3 sides to share amongst the table. Dessert included too. Amazing.

    The fried chicken is great, but the steak and potatoes is a wonderful alternative in the event they're out, which they often are. Read more

    If you like shrimp and grits, this is the place to go for them. Topped with a poached egg and some crusty bread to sop it all up with. Yum!

    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.

    Drink a couple Kentucky 75's. Order some oysters. Indulge in some fried chicken or some dumplings. And make sure to get some dessert. One of the best places in Atlanta!

    The pork belly sandwich with pickled green tomato and pork rinds was Fourgasmic. The sandwich had the perfect portion of tender rendered belly, slaw dressing, tomato, and cracklin's.
