Watty and Meg
I've been with the GF 3 or 4 times and have nothing but good things to say, great shrimp and grits, good soups and salas, nice space, had a great piece of skate wing there on the last visit. Not sure where you saw negative reviews but I would recommend checking it out.
thought it only fair to chime in as well. stopped in this past friday for a bite and was really pleasantly surprised with quite an excellent meal. very fresh tuna crudo with a thick grainy interestingly complimentary mustard seed garnish. fantastic salmon dish, perfectly cooked and surprisingly dressed. nice bottle of red and a pleasant dimly lit but warm atmosphere made for a very enjoyable evening in all. would absolutely recommend giving it a shot.
