Inconsistent, albeit reasonable prices with some good items. – Although the servers are nice and personable (Allison is very personable) this place fell short on my 2nd trip. First of all my meal on both occasions was inconsistent. The grits the first time was too firm; almost congealed. The 2nd time they were better but on their way to being "grainy". I know grits are not that easy to cook. Really they aren't. But if you want it done right it does take a little art and experience, which you would think a line cook would have by now. Sadly they don't. One of my poached soft eggs was raw on the inside and I understand why because the outside yolk area looked a little sunny side-uppish, which only means that the eggs were poached ON some kind of surface (container) that was either too hot or too close to the heat and I'm sure when the cook saw this they thought they were done. Alas, they were not. That's what happens when you are busy and try to cook things too quickly that require some finesse. My crisp bacon was crisp but it was greasy suggesting that they deep fried them like some places do to ensure a quick even cook, which is something I cannot stand. The butter that they have in containers must have been sitting out a long time because when I opened them, they were already separated, which made me worry that they had gone bad. It was busy and the room "set up" and server process doesn't seem to aid the servers as they apparently just take tables as they come versus "stations", which means they have to run all over to serve everyone without being able to provide the service to any one. I had to get others to fill my coffee that were passing by and when I asked for extra napkins, my server never came back so I had to go in and take one from behind the counter myself. On a positive note, their French toast options (Frenchy original and the "crème brulee" version) are VERY good. So if you're going for that, its worth the trip. Although nice friendly people including the owner/manager, this just doesn't get my seal of approval.
