SOUTHERN SOUL CUISINE

Inspired by the classical food traditions of the South, we take a modern approach to the cuisine of the outer banks of North Carolina, the sea islands of Georgia, the classic food of the Mississippi Delta and more. With a farm to table philosophy, Little Gem offers guests creatively prepared dishes that feature locally sourced seasonal ingredients at all times.

 Dinner

Diners can enjoy acoustic music with their dinner in our Saloon five nights a week.

We're open Monday through Friday from 11am to 2pm with a beautiful New Southern Soul lunch buffet.

Happy Hour & Specialty Cocktails

Our expert bartenders specialize in hand-crafted cocktails made with locally sourced fresh ingredients. We make our own Tonic Water, and we infuse our own Spirits with fresh fruit & herbs. Our specialty cocktails are inspired by our Jazz history and we offer Bazan Wines from our family vineyard in Oregon. We offer live music during Happy Hour on Thursdays and Fridays, and there's a $5 Kitchen menu as well!  View Our Specialty Cocktail and Happy Hour Menus.
 

Large Party Dining

We get a lot of large non-private tables here at the Gem, and we've been looking for a way to make everyone's experience great when there are large parties in house. We think this beautiful three course, eleven item Tasting Menu is a great answer. Served family style at your table of 20 or more and priced at $39, this menu features our most popular menu items.

Dessert

 

 
 
We also offer an expertly curated, seasonal dessert menu, as well as an assortment of  Ports, Brandies, Cognacs and Absinthes to end your evening in the sweetest way imaginable. View our Dessert Menu

Sunday Brunch

On Sundays, when the Saints aren't playing down the street, we offer a Blues Brunch with live music from 11am-2pm. You'll also find Bottomless Mimosas and a Bloody Mary Bar to make your Sunday a Fun Day!

Game Days


Join us at the Little Gem on Game Days for tailgating, watch the game on one of our big screen TVs or stop by to celebrate on your way home from the Dome! We serve a Game Day menu on all Saints home game days, and during certain Bowl games throughout the season, and always open three hours before kickoff. We do not take reservations on Game Days.  View Our Game Day Menu
