The food was good but nothing that I can say "Wow'd" me. They have a daily offering of a Prixe Fixe on their menu that offers 3 courses for $38, however when we tried to order it they said it was considered a special and could not use the Groupon on it, even though no such thing is stated in the Groupon and it is a regular menu option. Was a little disappointed at that as it would have given a better variety of items to try.

Beware before you buy this Groupon. Your reservation has to be before 6:30 or 9:30 or later. The Groupon never stated this. You find out after you purchase and try to make the reservation, which can only be made through the Groupon App. We took the 9:30 reservation but weren't seated until almost 10PM.

The Old Fashioned is great. The fried chicken is incredible. Stay away from the sweet potato - bland and no flavor.

We enjoyed very much the price fixed $39 a person dinner which is available before 7 p.m. and all evening long on Sundays. The service was probably the best we have ever had at a restaurant. Try to get a table in the back library room. It is much quieter there.
