I agree that this place used to be better. Yesterday, during Happy Hour, we spent $47, and this is without tip. What did we get? 3 drinks, shrimp nachos with about 3 shrimp cut up, not melted cheese and just about no toppings, a chicken salad sandwich, and BAD shrimp and grits. I mean the grits were like in a SOUP of grease and their "andoulle sausage" was jimmy dean breakfast sausage!! They get one star because the sandwich was alright and I've been there before for brunch with positive results. What happened???

This review says that entrees are $16-19, however when I visited the restaurant today I was disapointed to discover that entrees are about $18-24 (which sucks if the lower prices factored into your decision). The wines are also expensive, starting at $8 a glass, compared to other restaurants which at least have one 5 or 6 dollar option.
Not counting cost, the food was pretty good. I wouldn't order the veggie options on the appetizer section of the menu ever again. My asparagus was ice cold and mushy and the prep was simply to grill and salt. The mushrooms were good but the eggplant was a little out there for my taste (it included very sweet fillings such as raisins). The trigger fish was ok, although the accompanying sauce was not. The mushroom gnudi was great. I couldn't tell where my pasta ended and my cheese filling began--it was that smooth. They were extremely generous with mushrooms as well. A friend got the hanger steak---cooked perfectly, although the side of macaroni was just ok. And the tirimisu cheesecake was very good.
Overall, with the location and price, and the general "ok-ness" of the food, I will probably not return to this restaurant.
