Heard about this place from a chowhound friend, and it was recommended in my quest for great fried chicken on this board recently, so the wife and I ventured out last night.

It was busy even on a Tuesday, but we were able to get a table after a few minute wait. Atmosphere is comfortable, and slightly more formal than I was expecting (white table clothes), considering I was expecting super casual. Service was very friendly, reasonably knowledgable, and minimally attentive.

I had the buttermilk fried chicken that came with mashed potatoes and gravy, and sauteed squash, along with a side of braised greens with bacon. The chicken was juicy, flavorful, and crisp. I like a little more crust on my chicken. The potatoes were more whipped than mashed, which was a turn off for me. The squash was cooked properly and was excellent. The spicy; smokey greens were also excellent.

My wife had the cider glazed pork chop, with mashed sweet potatoes, and the same greens. The chop was nothing interesting, but the jus that came with was tasty and well balanced. Potatoes were heavily spiced (nutmeg?) and very interesting, but not my thing.

The cornbread brought to the table was a bit course and dry for me. With a glass of wine, beer, and tip, bill was ~$50. I would go back if a friend wanted to try it out, but I can't say that I'd venture there again on my own.
