  • Shawn COMG! This food was sooooo good. Delicious! I had the Mac and cheese, greens, and fried chicken. They welcome you with a piece of cornbread, which was excellent, when you are seated. Very nice touch.

  • Christina dTook my boyfriend here for his birthday, we loved it. They pride themselves on having great food, not the best waiter/waitress service; the food made up for it though. Peach cobbler is a must have!

  • Stephanie B.Huge disappointment in this establishment as the food was average at best. I noticed that most of the positive comments were made a few years ago, so I can only assume the quality has gone downhill.

    22222 by Stephanie B.


  • tracieThe food is just average. The salmon cakes I had were barely seasoned. The macaroni n' cheese was good. The sweet tea was ok. Service was good but I probably won't go back during my stay in Charlotte.

    55555 by Creative Loafing
