When we arrived I was STARVING, so I ordered the shrimp and grits and some sweet potato fries. I was trying to stay gluten-free because I knew that Thanksgiving would have all sorts of cheats and I didn't want to start my digestive stress a day early. Anyway! As you know, I'm not a Southerner. I had NO IDEA what to expect with shrimp and grits and I was pleasantly surprised! The shrimp was juicy and flavorful, the grits creamy and delicious, with some extra spices (and maybe pesto?) dotted on top. I ate it all in about ten seconds because 1. I was starving, and 2. It was THAT GOOD. I ended up not having a ton of room for the fries, so I shared them around. They were crispy and delicious and everything you could want from a sweet potato fry. And the chipotle aioli for dipping was incredible.
Other dishes that got rave reviews from my friends that ordered them: The steak quesadillas (these looked INCREDIBLE and I will totally get them next time I visit), and the Banh Mi flatbread (I love Ban Mis, but with my avoiding gluten that day I did not try it). Overall, everyone was more than satisifed with their food and very surprised that a place that has a main draw of something other than food had such awesome food.
The drinks, while a little pricier than I've seen in town, were also great. I got the November cranberry special, and also shared one of their signature fishbowls with Lauren. The fishbowls come in a souvenir cup, shaped like a golf bag. It was girly and sickly sweet, everything you'd expect from a good fishbowl!
This was such a fun night and now it's definitely on my list of places to show my family when they visit, since my stepdad is a great golfer. I also could be persuaded to go just for the food sometime!
