    Sit at the outdoor counter & watch the world stroll by. Be sure the cook the hush puppies long enough. Ours were a bit doughy.

    Nasty, cold, and disappointing. Don't get stuck in this tourist trap. Don't know why you would continue to serve cold food after everyone around us was complaining.

    Sit outside. Order something messy. Throw the spent shells and other refuse into the hole in the middle of the table. Great experience and good food.
