Fabulous Outdoor Dining
Being safe, we wanted to eat outdoors, but it was chilly. The Bistro had super portable fire pits and put one right next to our table. So that was great - and the food was wonderful. Shrimp and Grits and Pork Chop made our day.

So the service and food was amazing. The fried mushrooms with a Sriracha ranch were so yummy and crispy. The salads were fresh including a Caesar salad with blackened chicken on it. Then a berry salad with a side of balsamic dressing was amazing. The service was outstanding and the place is adorable.
