I took my mother here for Mother’s Day, and it was our first time. Our waiter, Chris, was SO FREAKING NICE! He was so helpful and made the experience great. The food was AMAZING (order the $8 biscuit and cornbread basket as a started to try the apple butters and jams!)

Wedge salad was wonderful and a little different twist with balsamic and green goddess dressing. The fried fish over Mac and cheese was so indulgent and delicious!

Brown Butter is a treasure to the mid-town area. My wife and I love eating there or grabbing a drink. The staff and service are amazing. Great people, great food, great drinks. I don't know what else you could want.

This family style pub was inviting and offers large portions. The mussels had great flavor. The burgers are huge, juicy, and busting with flavor.

Comfortable friendly space. Cocktails were excellent and we even got the recipe for a few. The fish, fried Mac and cheese with greens was the best thing I ever ate..perfect balance. I ate it all!!!

One of the best burgers I’ve ever had anywhere. Blend of brisket and short rib beef served on a toasted brioche bun. Unusual toppings and great fries. Don’t miss their “burger and 2 beers” special for just $15.
Good beer selection too.
Highly recommend!

My wife ordered a Bloody Mary to start, it was so spicy, that she could not drink it. She can handle spicy foods. I ordered the Seoul Bowl, this too was very spicy.
There was only three other tables that had customers. Right there should have told us something was not that good about this place.
Will not be going back!

My husband & I have splurge Sunday meals with true comfort foods & this exceeded our expectations. We are huge foodies doing most cooking ourselves. This was a special treat that we will repeat & tell others about. Best burgers we’ve ever had - cooked perfectly to our request.

Came here for brunch with my father and boyfriend. It was busy, so our server was a bit in the weeds and it will awhile for him to take our orders and the food took a good 20-25 minutes. Other than that he was pretty friendly and accommodating. The food was decent for the price. My father got he poutine, the fries were very good and the debris on top was great. I got the shrimp and grits, they were good, but pretty standard. My boyfriend got the bread pudding French toast. The fruit on top was fresh and the butter cream was delicious. I definitely have recommended this place in the past for dinner because they have a great charcuterie.

Great southern comfort food with a twist.
Thin sliced fried pickles to start, fried catfish with fried mac and cheese and shrimp Creole with rice grits for entrees. Very friendly and efficient service. Great local beer selection too. Daily special was two beers and a burger for a price fixe! $15
Highly recommend

A friend was in town visiting and we went to brown butter. The garlic parmesan wings and Alabama sauce were not good but everything else was delicious! It was super quiet so we were to talk and laugh without interruption. The Playlist was on point and our server was super attentive.

We walked in and the smell of cleaner combined with the faint odor of grease made us walk out. We never ate the food. But the server was very understanding when we apologized and left. The only thing on the menu that was vegetarian was a pimento cheese sandwich, which she graciously offered. I give them credit: at least it wasn't another damned pasta dish.

This is a cool local restaurant with a great vibe. The inside has a bunch of art on the wall (I bought a couple of pieces done by Lauren Clayton, and she is a fabulous artist so take a look) and the dishes offered a unique with a very southern influence. Enjoy their special on mimosas or bloody mary's along with one of their very neat signature dishes. The burgers are delicious and a friend of mine got the bread pudding french toast (or something like that) and couldn't quit raving about it. I travel to New Orleans to run a bunch of their races and this is a perfect spot for an after run gathering and meal. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Nothing but good things to say about this cool spot.

It was fine. Nothing that I would say I JUST HAD to go back for. Didn’t really care for the fried green tomato with egg. Bland. The Seoul bowl was delicious though. My husband enjoyed that.
