    Most food was excellent. I got shrimp and grits. Usually very good but Sunday it was a little bland and for the cost it would be nice to get more than 3 pieces of shrimp. My “poached eggs”, 3 of them, were all poached well done. For an upscale restaurant you would think the chef would know that is inappropriate for poached eggs. Had they been cooked appropriately, it may have made the grits have a little more flavor. The clam chowder was outstanding. It was really hot in the restaurant.

    It was a terrific experience. Rockfish and oysters were prepared excellently. Mary Milner our server did an excellent job. I am curious why so many tables were empty from 6:20 pm to 7:55 pm. It’s so hard to get a reservation I thought every table would have been occupied. Nonetheless, it was a wonderful experience and we will be back as soon as possible. Chef works magic in the kitchen. Lives up to the earlier Southern Living accolades as one of the best restaurants in the South.

    We stumbled across this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food was good. It was buffet only on Sunday so we got to try some of everything. I would like to see the meat section refilled more often. Also if the buffet was turned a different way patrons could do both sides at the same time instead of the dead end on the one side.

Discover Virginia

Virginia is known for more than just delicious southern cooking; they have their own style! If you are a ham lover, look out for Virginia ham — also known as Smithfield ham. It is only legal to produce in one place in the world, Smithfield, Virginia. Virginian cuisine also includes a variety of BBQ that range from all vinegar to a vinegar-based sweetness. A hearty Brunswick stew is another mainstay of Virginia. Originally using an Appalachian flying squirrel, it now uses a variety of meats braised in this vegetable stew. Traditional Virginian apple cider and apple butter, made from Wineapples, is a real treat. Another delicacy is any seafood that is cooked with Old Bay, originally formulated with spices from a specific region of the state, the Chesapeake Bay.
