Located at the rear of the Hotel Ballast, adjacent to the Riverwalk with a fabulous view of the USS North Carolina Battleship, this restaurant is the perfect solution for casual diners, whether residents, visitors or business people. The southern-inspired dishes are created by the recently appointed executive chef, William Robey, whose experience includes a variety of Cajun fare.

The restaurant boasts locally-sourced meat and vegetables and food that is freshly prepared in-house. Lighter fare is accompanied by refreshing sides like fresh fruit and pickle fries! Shareable appetizers include southern fried green tomatoes. In true southern style, the plate comes with five portions to drive social interaction between diners who need to determine who gets to eat the fifth one!
