Crook's Corner

Crook's Corner Review

In business since 1982, this small restaurant has always been an exemplar of Southern chic. The menu, which changes nightly, highlights local produce and regional specialties such as green-pepper chicken with hoppin' John (black-eyed peas), crab gumbo, buttermilk pie, and honeysuckle sorbet. A wall of bamboo and a waterfall fountain make the patio a delightful alfresco experience (it's heated for wintertime dining). Crook's also does a nice Sunday brunch, though it's closed for lunch on other days. Look for the faded pink pig atop the building.
