The Low Down


Where to Sit: Tables along the wall in the bar are reserved for meal service, so unless you want to partake in the bar scene during dinner, sit in the main dining room.

What to Drink: The Jamaican coffee comes with whipped cream and a splash of Meyer's rum and helps melt the powdered sugar topping the fried dessert beignets.

Save Time: Many desserts are baked fresh, so order dessert as the same time as your entree if you're in a rush.
