American Restaurant
“This is our favorite place for brunch on the weekends. The atmosphere is upscale but very relaxed. The food is consistently amazing, as are the cocktails. Their Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar is fantastic! We always get the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. Our favorites are the chicken and waffles and the shrimp and grits.”
