    The happy hour for drinks is lame, but come for the food which is amazing! There are too many menu items to name which are great and dessert is no exception. Yum food, boo happy hour.

    Second time I've come for brunch. Not as good this time. The grits tasted like they came from the bottom of the pot with no cheese. Maybe 3rd times a charm?
