Fodor's 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 hopping 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.
