The lump crab cakes are not good and need to be taken off the menu or revamped. The crab hush puppies were not good either. They need to be revamped with jumbo lump crab meat but this place has the potentia to be cool

Since it was a dinner groupon me and my friend met there at 6. We noticed there were happy hour deals. We asked our server if we could open a separate check and receive the happy hour deal. We were told since we had a groupon the happy hour could not apply to us. Keep in mind we spicidically asked to open another check that had nothing to do with the groupon. Also our entree's did not arrive until 30 minutes after we ordered. We ordered the fat fries but they never came out. Instead we were told they were burnt and they could remake some new ones "if we still wanted them." 4 hours later we were still wondering about the in house groupon rules that weren't on the coupon. Just go for brunch!!

I was highly disappointed in the wait time for the meal then to only be served with the worse food I have ever had. the Short Rib and the Lamb had the same tick dark sauce the mash potatoes were cold and the lamb was under cooked.

The restaurant was cold. I order the mussels appetizer and they had the worst smell ever like maybe they were rotten. The waiter recommended the meat and potato with green beans dish which turned out to be tasteless roast beef over potatoes and squash. The waiter said they had not updated their menu yet. Ok, then you should inform the customer when they order. Also, don't waste your money on the crabmeat hushpuppies. Overall, the food was way overprice for the quality. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and was satisfied. The roast beef meal was $22.

You can't use the Groupon and te happy hour deals. A nice place but no one else was in there. Food was good, but the $40 groupon doesnt get you much at regular prices.

The establishment is nice but could use a slight make over in both ambiance and food. The salmon seemed to lack significant flavor. I think Creme has a lot of potential and love
