Southern Hospitality is a mutual relationship

As hosts, we'll sincerely try to make your visit both enjoyable and memorable. As welcome guests, please respect our hospitality by equal courtesy and not bringing outside food or drink into our restaurant.

Please - No strollers or similar conveyances

Local fire safety regulations prohibit strollers & similar conveyances in our historic building because of its one aisle, narrow "shotgun" design. That said, we love our younger guests - we're proud grandpas! If you can collapse your child's stroller or similar conveyance and it can be stored behind the service counter, we can both observe local fire safety regulations and enjoy the pleasure of your company. Thank you!
