  • Nicolaus S.Had to eat here as part of a bachelor party. Not vegetarian friendly. Even their vegetables are cooked with meat or are smothered in a meat gravy. Our servers were also very scatter brained.

    55555 by Nicolaus S.

  • Doug BDidn't live up to the hype, chewy alligator and dry pulled pork. On top of the hour and 15 that our "20 minute" wait for a table took won't be back, but do plan to try the butcher around the corner.

    33333 by Doug B

  • Kevin T.Best table bread and butter. Start with fried alligator for the table. Rabbit and dumplings also solid. Oyster sandwich is massive

    33333 by Brett A
