Excellent restaurant on the square, right next to City Grocery. Great value in a contemporary setting. Will eat there again. The warm bread/olive oil is a tasty starter. Typical entrée starting around the $11.99 range. They have a back bar/lounge that you can enter from Faulkner’s alley, nice feature if you just want to duck in for a beer or get some food To Go.
This place looks like an abandoned grocery store from the outside, but step inside and you'll be transported to the most definitive Southern atmosphere anywhere. Even if the food weren't great, the atmosphere alone would be something you shouldn't miss.
Unbelievably, this restaurant serves more than 1500 a week. (where on earth do they seat everyone?)
Visit on Friday nights, and enjoy being entertained by local bands (mostly blues). CDs are for sale there, if you want to take a piece of the experience home with you.
A warm, homey, and way cool place to be.
Favorite Dish: You have to have the catfish and all the trimmin's.
I'm not sure what was better, the food or the atmosphere. Elegant, yet comfortable; quiet, yet bustling with relaxed activity. Contemporary Southern cuisine, with some French and Italian thrown in there. Delightful. The portions are what I'd consider to be "ladylike" (or "man on a serious diet"), but the quality made up for what was lacking in quantity.
