Yes, we’re an ale house — it’s in our name and our blood. But, depending on who you ask, we might be better known for our unique and modern twist on Southern cuisine. Our seasoned (pun intended) chefs can develop tasty creations for events needing heavy appetizers, light-fare, multi-course meals, brunch, or even just desserts!

Event Service
