My wife and I took a friend the Croc's for her 1st visit. Food and service were very good as usual. My best recommendation is that she said she would return with her husband!

I like that we could get some entrees in half-size orders. Everything is made to order. Fresh ingredients. The food was fine, I had the tabouleh salad and half order of shrimp and grits. Husband had the grilled Caesar salad with grilled salmon and bacon. It was a Sunday night, really quiet. The atmosphere/décor is very dark; everything is black. Not appealing at all. Looks like some updates are needed; things looked worn. I had the feeling of it being a bit dirty.

My first time at Drag Yourself to Brunch. I had a blast! I couldn't really tell from the open table reservation or the website that they have 2 seatings. One at 11:00am and a 2nd one at 2:00pm.

We went for the Drag Yourself to Brunch which was fun and funny and a must do at least once in your life!

I don't think the food was well represented during Brunch, the menu was limited and it takes quite a while to get your food some seemed not quite warm by time delivered (they're serving the whole restaurant at one sitting)

I would try again for dinner as the wider menu seems lovely and I think the food was better than we experienced - for example we got the hot crab dip everyone raves over and it was just ok.

Also it is EXTREMELY loud, way louder than the music needed to be in such a small venue, bring ear plugs if today don't want ringing ears for a couple hours after!

The food wasn't good. The shrimps were rubbery and over cooked. The grits were under cooked and hard. The gravy was watery and bland. Open table should also make it clear that the Sunday brunch is really a tawdry drag show so out of towners don't blunder into the tasteless, crass exhibition. Hated it

It really depends on your mood! The noise level made it extremely difficult to communicate with the servers. I would try a different menu item if I were to return because the the bananas foster French toast was not the best. The DJ was awesome and entertaining and the performers were energetic.

We went for the drag show brunch. The entertainment was great. The food was good. The service was wonderful. My only gripe..the music was way too loud. I left with a screaming head ache. Our table has a good time but we couldn't hear each other.
Turn down the volume and I'll be back.

I went to the Drag Queen Brunch and really had a blast. It was so much fun and the Queens were amazing. The only issues I really had was the music was kinda loud so it was hard to talk to the people at my table and my eggs were a bit bland, but besides that it was awesome. I would highly recommend it!!

I was there on a Sunday for Drag Yourself to Brunch. It was a blast! The show was wonderful, but maybe a little long. I would shorten the program down to 90 minutes (we were there 2 1/2 hours). Also, it was incredibly noisy; almost impossible to talk to your friends. The food for brunch was average. But we were there for the show, and it was outstanding! Good prices on both the meal and the drinks. We enjoyed our time there.

Booked the reservation online and was not disappointed. Good food and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Saturday night made for a great night out, Lobster linguine and spicy Blackened Tuna entrees were large and delicious. Recommended.

If you are timid, feel free to enjoy lunch or dinner and not the live show for brunch. If you are outgoing and open minded, the Drag Yourself to Brunch experience is legendary!

Family anniversary celebration had a great time with Alligator Bites for nephew and 1/2 off Sat night wine bottles we created our own tasting experience. Food and service were great - only issue was tuna steak was med well instead of med rare might suggest you order rare if you want med rare. But sauces were so good didn't really matter and service and overall vibe were perfect.
