Popovers were tasteless. Calamari ok but nothing special. Dumplings seemed to be frozen prepackaged ones but sauce was good. Menu tries to cover too many things but comes up short on most

BEWARE! Staff do not wear masks. When questioned about this I was told that all staff except 1 were vaccinated. I don't know where they are getting their information from but vaccinated people can still get Covid and spread it although not as readily as unvaccinated people.

Place is sort of buried in a condo/office area, but worth searching for. New server so service as okay, food was outstanding. We'll definitely return.

Food as always is pretty good, unfortunately the kitchen service still needs major improvement. We order their popovers which we were told are made per order so it takes a lite time for them to come out, ok so when they did they were barely warm and seemed to be old?? A new batch came out after 45 minutes and they were fresh. I order their short rib dinner which is usually pretty good but once again if was warn and burned. I don’t understand this place has so much potential because as I mentioned before their food is normally very testy and good but the kitchen service needs a major improvement.

I really enjoyed the interesting options for food, especially the specials! The food was fresh and innovative and had good flavor, presented well and at a good temperature.

Like most places in 2021, they seemed a little short on staff, and the dining room was full with customers. However, the staff was pleasant, attentive and was obviously hustling to keep everyone happy. They did a very good job of keeping our drinks filled, grabbing things we needed (salt and pepper), etc.

I really loved all of the local options for wine and hard cider! I opted for Whitecliff Rose, but they had a ton of other options as well. I wanted to try one of their cocktails, many of which are also made with local options, but I hadn't eaten all day and didn't think that hitting my empty belly with a bourbon cocktail was wise, so that is why I didn't get one. But they looked pretty innovative and different and tasty!! Looking forward to trying one next time.

An excellent experience overall. Looking forward to coming back to try more options on the menu!!

The menu is a bit eclectic and maybe wasn’t our thing. I had the Ruben sandwich which was very fatty and greasy. My friend had chic and biscuits and said the chicken was like chicken nuggets. Short ribs burnt on top was another meal. However my husband enjoyed his jambalaya
Server very nice

This was our second visit and it was just as good as our first!

The food is good, the staff is attentive, the place was quiet when we arrived for an early dinner at 5:30 but it was much livelier by the time we left at 7.

We haven't been able to eat outside due to poor weather on both visits but we look forward to dining out there next time. Because there will definitely be a next time :)

Food is flavorful, fresh and really well prepared. Have never been disappointed. Outside seating wasn’t very comfortable but it was my preference. Inside is very cozy.

Food was sub par compared to pre-covid. Tower Wedge was wilted and dressing tasted like it came from a "KRAFT" bottle. Bacon and Eggs eggs stuffing was runny. The duck was correctly advertised as "local"...from Acme across the street. Grits sucked. On the bright side Amanda was very attentive and pleasant. Not coming back anytime soon.

Food and drinks were wonderful!
Two people had the short rib gnocchi special.. outstanding! Jambalaya and local duck Breast were also great.. Pork dumplings were great.. calamari was just so so..
Bourbon flight was a hit..
It was a great night to eat outside and our server Amanda was amazing! fun and very accommodating..
Be aware the outside chairs aren’t very comfortable.. if you’re sensitive about that sort of thing might want to bring a cushion..

Our server Danny was outstanding - communicative, knowledgable and helpful. Food was excellent. We made great choices but it would seem that there were many great choices to be had. The owner is a hard working dude who wears a lot of hats. He checked in on us as well. Great spot that we will be back to again.

Went out for a girlfriends’ get-together, as one friend had been doing take-out during COVID from Clock Tower Grill. All of the food served at our table looked wonderful and my friends certainly enjoyed theirs. Our drinks were tasty too! Only one complaint from me: I ordered the Crispy Semolina Gnocchi, but the ricotta served on top tasted like it had goat cheese mixed into it, and I’m don’t like goat at all. The menu stated ‘ricotta’ so I assumed it would be like most ricottas and from the cow. If it is goats’ milk ricotta, they should change the menu. I tried getting past the flavor and enjoyed the rest of the dinner plate.

We Had a 7:15 reservation out side when we arrived Someone had to clean the table. We sat there at least 30 minutes with no acknowledgement from anyone it was clear they disd not have enough help. Finally we went inside and were seated at another table. Server was new but he was very good. We frequent this place and not used to this terrible service. Food arrived finally around 9:15. It was great!!! the only good thing about this whole experience..
