When we arrived, they were busy, and there was a couple ahead of us in line at the host stand. Once they were seated we were told that our server had just taken two tables in a row, and that it may be a short wait before he got to us. That was fine since we'd never been before and needed time to look over the menu. It was only ten minutes before our server, Trae, came to take our order. He was good. Our drinks and food were ordered at the same time and he committed them to memory (we're always impressed when people are able to do that!). While we waited for our food, we had sweet tea (sugar-shock, of course) and took in the atmosphere. The place was bright and buzzing with Sunday supper energy! Funk and soul music accompanied by paintings of music legends set the tone to perfect.

The rest of the evening went just as smoothly, with the staff keeping up with the busyness of the night. They were efficient and calm, well trained to the layout of the small dining room. To say that I was impressed is an understatement. I'm going back very soon, and next time I'm saving room for dessert.
