    We came for restaurant week and the food was delicious! Service was good, the courses were spaced properly, and the food was great. Although some of the restaurant week specials aren’t on their regular menu, there are several amazing things to choose from, and I can’t wait to come back as soon as possible.

    The food was amazing. Only drawback was that it wasn’t hot… it was warm, but seemed as if it sat for a bit before being picked up. We went for the Restaurant Week menu — it would have been nice if there was a choice of dessert. The only option was banana pudding, which I don’t care for.

    I really wanted to like this place. The service was pretty good but it did take a long time to get the check. We got the try it all. my son said the wings were great. I like the sausage however, the pulled pork came out ice cold. The ribs were so tough and fatty. we were also charged additional fees for mac & cheese, which we thought was part of the order. Unfortunately, we won’t go back.

    Food was really good. Staff was very nice; waitress didn't check in as often as you'd like, but she had a lot of tables to wait on. Bar was out of chardonnay and Coors Lite...that was a bit strange. Clientele skews pretty young (20-35)...be prepared for a fairly loud atmosphere, even on a weekend afternoon.

    I absolutely LOVE this restaurant so I hate to give a bad review but we had a party of 4 for dinner at 5:30 last pm. We had drinks and appetizers and just before 6 we ordered dinner. At 6:45 we still had no food and we had to leave to get to a show across the street at 7…we asked them to box it to go. What a disappointment.

    If you're looking for a more intimate setting, this would not be the environment. On the menu I saw they had "bottomless mimosa's." While we did not partake in this, I would go back to it. After sending my waffle back, I ordered French toast and that was great. I also tasted the mocked wings and they weren't bad.

    Not impressed with the quality of the food for a bbq joint. The sides tasted heated from a microwave. Ribs were extremely tough and would not even come off the bone. BBQ sauces were terrible. Not worth the $

    The nachos for 14.00 serve four easily as an appetizer! The Have it all. .. . for 40.00 was a great selection and would feed 2-3 easily. The espresso martini is unbelievable! However, drinks are a little expensive. Great food and great place to visit.

    The Brisket and Mac & Cheese were amazing! The corn bread side for $5 was actually a tiny loaf and not worth the $ (even at happy hour discount). Server was friendly, but not very attentive. We were there pretty early so the noise wasn’t bad and there weren’t many people. Not sure what it would be like later.

    Food was very good - we got the try it all. The only part we weren’t happy with was the coleslaw. The portion was so small is was ridiculous. The ambiance is that of a sports bar with loud country music With less than good service despite us being one of the only customers there.

    The service was excellent and the drinks were wonderful, but I expected a little more around the food and it wasn't all that great, my Mac n Cheese was warn NOT hot and my husband had the southern sandwich and the bun wasn't even moist it was hard, I think there was a lot of hype around this place and when it came down to it, it was OK, but not outstanding.

    Overall experience was excellent and 10/10 would return. They offered us some free cinnamon rolls for a birthday we were celebrating, so definitely mention special occasions on your reservation if you're celebrating something. Food was very good except the cheddar cornbread which I didn't care for. And my breakfast sandwich was very messy but yummy. I ended up eating it with a knife and fork.
