Like a lot of the reviewers said, it is VERY noisy in this place. My husband and I had to really talk loud to each other to be heard.

We started out with an appetizer of the fried oysters with bacon vinaigrette, which was very good.

He ordered the bbq baby back ribs, mac & cheese and cole slaw. He said his ribs were excellent. The cole slaw had a huge piece of onion in it that probably took up most of his ramekin. The mac & cheese needed seasoning.

I ordered the peach bbq salmon, mac & cheese and spinach with garlic. It was all good, except the mac & cheese did need seasoning (salt & pepper.)

Food was good and overall a good value - service was OK but we felt rushed as if they wanted to turn the table. We weren't offered a 2nd drink - I would have had another beer if offered. Not sure if they have desert as the waiter never mentioned it - he just brought the check. Quite noisy - hard to hear anyone across the table talk with raising their voices. Lots of kids and a crying baby added to the overall noise level. Maybe we'll try it for lunch when things are more relaxed.

Food is really pretty good but the portions are small. Biggest Downside is the place is very small, it borders on tiny and therefore your elbows are almost hitting those of the folks seated next to you. In addition the tables and chairs are not very high quality at all. Matter of fact they’re more like yard sale quality. Maybe thats the look they were going for but for the customer its pretty uncomfortable. But as i said the food and the service is really good.
