    Vegetables and herbs are provided by the owners' own 10-acre farm. A local bakery supplies the bread, and nearby breweries deliver their best beers, including Pisgah's Organic Pale Ale. Read more

    After being told of a 45 minute wait, we waited an hour and a half to be seated by the door that is constantly propped open. Not worth the wait.

    Order the Kenny Special: sweet potato pancake with fried chicken and pecans on top. It was named after a waiter named Kenny. Which makes sense.
