The food was spectacular, everything was so flavorful and exquisitely prepared I dare say this has been my favorite meals of our 2021 Coolinary date series (also they have a great weekend brunch we plan to try out soon)! Our server was also so attentive and friendly, she made the experience that much more enjoyable.

I actually ate here twice in one week, once with my husband, the other with my mother. Absolutely unbelievable. Maybe because I haven’t been out to eat in so long, I didn’t remember how amazing this kind of food tastes but holy moly. They have a new executive chef and the man is the 8th wonder. Ive never had pork chops like that in my life.

See y’all again soon.

The Pan Fried pork chop was delicious, however the Shrimp and beans were barely warm and virtually no flavor.

I never post reviews, but the meal I just had was so amazing, I made an exception. Service and atmosphere were terrific as well, but the Brisket Mac immediately rises to my top 5 entrees of all time.

We had a wonderful time here- as always!! The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect! We celebrated my husband’s birthday this visit and had a party of 6. The table was comfortable and service was great! If you haven’t tried this place, you are missing out!! Lots of great food options, from apps to mains- you will not be disappointed!!

Our brunch was delicious. We started with the basket which included biscuits and cornbread waffles. We then had the honey cluckin' biscuit, the Seoul Burger and the short ribs which was the special of the day. All of our dishes were really good. We would highly recommend Brown Butter.

We had wine, beer and vodka to start followed by pate and fried brussel sprouts. Both excellent appetizers. Shrimp and butterbeans, brisket, cheeseburger and ribs over grits were all quite tasty. Service was great. We will return and not order as much so we can try dessert.
