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 like hoppin' John and shrimp and grits. 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, although it's closed for lunch on other days. Look for the faded pink pig atop the building.
