They had the most amazing Southern food, presented in a beautiful way. Not big, huge, portions lumped on a plate. It was presented like gourmet cuisine.
They serve a lot of their entree's on creamy grits. Yum -my. We tried a tuna filet for the first time. The waiter convinced Don to get the Tuna rare, that it will taste just like steak. He was right. It was amazing.
While we were eating, a group of about 4 couples were in the bar waiting for a table. They were a rowdy bunch having a great time. The ringleader of the group was in charge of the drinks. He had a really strong southern accent. Everytime he said Bloody Mary - it was drawn out and sounded like Bluuuudy Mareh. We couldn't stop laughing. And of course we had to try a Bloody Mary. It was delish. Tomatoey, peppery, just perfect.
I've tried to copy their grits over the years and never could get it right. I just discovered they sell their grits on their website. Now maybe I can finally make them right.
