  1. This may be a bit late, but we went there last night w/ our 2 kids and thought it was excellent. Very cosy environment, friendly service, and great food. I had the shrimp and grits, awesome homemade grits, huge fresh shrimp, my husband had the lamb, wonderful. They had great kids plates, very generous for $6.95 (entree plus veggies, fries, and animal crackers) and though it is a tablecloth joint, they were clearly welcoming to the kids. We got there at 6pm on Friday night and there were about 4 tables full, it was totally packed when we left at 8pm and had a great neighborhood tavern feeling with the front bar full of people, and windows overlooking MacArthur Blvd, and the back tables very cosy w/ arm chairs and a library atmosphere. Apparently, the restaurant is a collaboration of some fairly well known local chefs, I'm going to try to find out more. They also told us they have been doing great business even though they opened on thanksgiving and everyone around was also raving. Would love to hear views of any others who have tried it.
