If you are looking for Soul Food, this is the place to go. It is a place that youcan go and get dressed up. They don't like jeans so you feel like you are in an upscale restaurant even if you are local. The portion sizes are good and the service is great. You do need to make reservations.

If you are looking for a great place to eat, look no further. Freshwaters is a restaurant that specializes in southern cuisine and it shows. They serve everything from mac and cheese to smothered chicken. And for dessert they serve delicious pies and a signature peach cobbler.

The staff is very friendly and efficient. The ambiance of the restaurant is pleasing as well with soft music and candles. I would suggest getting reservations because this place fills up fast.

Well, as I walked in, it reminded me of a funeral palor. Old fashioned decor with plastic flowers not to mention, the stinch you smelled once in. Then the hostess looked like she was made up for her last viewing as well. The order came in seconds which was a dead giveaway as well. My date ordered ribs, cabbage, and macaroni. The ribs were boiled to death, with a little sauce thrown over them, and the cabbage was a day late. The mac and cheese wasn't good either. I unfortunately got the crab cakes which were burnt and mushy inside. The potato salad and fried whiting was the best tasting though. I can say that they were just cooked recently. It was a disappointing birthday dinner. I will not return. Freshwaters was Stalewaters. Sorry!

Pros: Nice folks

Cons: They are in the wrong industry.

Freshwater's is my favorite restaurant of any kind. It is down home southern cooking like I have never had before in my life. Their cornbread crumbles in your mouth and tastes like they made it just for you. Whether you get the fried chicken, barbecue, or the shrimp creole you will be satisfied. You get great sides (the mac and cheese is the best!) and everything is freshly prepared and delcious. Be prepared to part with some cash for this restuarant, but it is amazing! Dress code is no jeans, but doesn't have to be formal. Call for reservations, and enjoy the bread pudding or peach cobbler for dessert!
