Sweet Peas in "South Tallahassee"

Just opened in Woodville. Same menu at lunch and dinner. Prices for sandwiches are in the $7 - 9 range. I had a BLT which had lots of good bacon but pitifully slight on the tomato. With a small cup of potato salad,$6.75. An 8 oz. burger with cheese, mushrooms, and bacon and a side was 7.95. Gumbo was well received but pieces of seafood were small. A barbecue sandwich at around 8 was sliced pork with lettuce, tomato and onion (???) and a side. The Q is cooked out back.
Other dishes were pecan-crusted trout at $17 and 1/2 fried chicken at 9.95 both with two sides. Some interesting sides not tried were collards, green fried tomatoes, etc. Just past the Seineyard as one heads south.
Again today for lunch. It was late (1:30) but place was deserted. No one there but staff. Server said that half of waitstaff and 2 of 4 cooks sent home early. Fried chicken okay, but the "half chicken" was strangely missing the thigh, my favorite part. Waitress volunteered that "yes, we call it a half chicken, but don't serve the thigh." Go figure. Mashed potatoes great, collards and slaw fine, as was the cornbread. Blackened grouper too salty by far and sent back.
