Waitress was a unable to open wine properly and pour both glasses without offering taste. Out of Special by 6:30PM. Food just OK. Too many good restaurants to go back.

They want to know what was I celebrating we told them birthday but really didn’t getting special treatment so what’s the point of asking for the occasion?

Maybe I'm just not the target market for this genre of food, *but* I have specific thoughts about things like country fried steak & gravy. I ordered the poutine as well. The dishes were saturated in thyme, which is not a seasoning that I prefer. The poutine's tater tots were mushy - you are going to sell me poutine without fries, you have to make sure the potato layer is crisp providing a different texture than the gravy.
The table bread was fantastic, the mashed potatoes were lovely. Service was great, the place looks wonderful. Just didn't like the excess seasoning and the steak's breading fell off quickly and was crammed with more thyme. I wish they had been outta thyme!

The service was slow. The food was cold. Nothing exciting at all.

The Southern Egg Rolls were tasty but overcooked. While it was favorful my 'Hand Cut' New York Strip was 50% inedible gristle and fat. The Bayou Pasta was also tasty if you overlook the dried out chicken. As usual the bar service was extremely slow, averaging 15 minutes per round. The restaurant was not busy so the lack of attention to detail and service times are perplexing.

I had reservations tonight. Neat place but I tried to tell host I had Rez through Open Table and he didn’t seem to care. Waitress was young, new, and needs training. We were rushed the entire time because staff wanted to leave. Ordered apps, salads, and dinner all at same time. Apps and salads came out at same time and dinner came before we finished either. Dinner got cold and I asked that it be reheated. She took it but it came back cold again. Wasn’t going to send it back again. Really disappointing. Thought the Manager/Owner would want to know.

Sunday brunch was very busy, reservation would be recommended to avoid a wait. Service was very good, food delivery was prompt. Food was OK but nothing exceptional. Restaurant is essentially one large open space, with constant background noise, so very family friendly.

1st time and we went for brunch. Everything we had was delicious although to me the fried green tomatoes were a little salty. The mango mimosa was awesomely delicious. The chicken was very tender and juicy, everything was good.

The food here is so great! We were so surprised by the portion sizes. You will definitely get full! The staff is so friendly and prompt. And the atmosphere is perfect. It’s not too loud that you can’t carry on conversation at a reasonable level, but not so quiet that you’re afraid to make a sound. Thank you so much for my first time here!

Food was very good! Bloody mary’s left a lot to be desired. Nice bar area, modern rustic decor.
