Our dishes are freshly prepared to-order, and our sauces, dressings, and desserts are all house-made.”

I’ve heard great things about this restaurant, so you know I had to give it a try. Because it was Restaurant Week I made reservations, and it was a good thing I did! The place was packed. I always take this as a good sign that I’m not just going to eat dinner but have an experience. As I walked in, there was a beautiful horseshoe bar and lots of beautiful tables and booths. The ceiling is painted black with exposed timbers because the location was transformed from an old tobacco warehouse.

I ordered three courses from the Restaurant Week menu – a very tasty smoky sweet corn bisque appetizer, a Cajun grilled Mahi Mahi entrée served with pineapple salsa over rice, and a delightful Coca Cola cake for dessert. The menu offered several other entrees I would have liked to try, but you know…so much food, so little time!

I hope you get a chance to try out this quaint little restaurant. I think you’ll be very pleased with the ambiance, cocktails, food, and service! And don’t’ forget to check out the flood water marker from the 1913 Flood…hence the name “Watermark.”
