Service was outstanding as always. The group of servers work together and the orders fly out

Our server was awesome.

The cauliflower was a hit and salads were a hit. The French toast is worth it. Just walk around the block a few times and head back for lunch

I always enjoy this place. Not many gluten free options, but it's all quite tasty and lots of great comfort food options (for others)

Food was excellent. Outside dining was really well done with separate “pods” - but the heat wasn’t working properly and it started warm but got too cold to stay.

We got appetizer plates that had a greasy sheen all over--you could see fingerprint smudges on them. Very unappetizing! I get that the old plates are part of the ambience but they were just kind of dingy.

Service: mostly good but in the beginning our server walked by us several times, kind of leisurely, before ever coming to our table. We thought it was maybe order online service because of that. Once he did come over, things came out at a good pace.

It’s always a great time when my husband and I patronize Bud and Marilyn. The food was great, the service was great, everything was great per usual. We have never been disappointed which is why we keep coming back.

Outdoor dining was fine! It was pretty warm in the little huts. We were far down the street so we didn't get a lot of attention from our server which could have been better.

We had a great experience from calling and speaking to the hostess to the service. Super friendly staff and the food was great. Bloody Mary was a little spicy for me, but my husband loved it. Pecan roll was amazing!

Reserved outdoor dining and was brought to a room with a 75% enclosed roof, was not pleased. Despite this, drinks were good and worth the price. Food filling and interesting flavors. Enjoyed my time there overall.

The addition of the patio for outdoor seating during Covid was great, but it is a little close for my liking at this time. They did as much as they could to have guests safely dine, but I wish I would have had the option to select patio or sidewalk seating. There were plastic dividers between each table, for those joining and haven't seen that yet. Service was amazing, food was great!!

The fried rice was not great and they did the best they could for heat. But otherwise this place was amazing and I highly recommend the cinnamon roll and the crab fries

Went for a Saturday morning brunch. Really cute atmosphere, nice job with covid protocols. We both had the spicy chicken sandwich with fries. So good and exactly what we needed after a late night out.
