Very nice open atmosphere, first warm day in Spring so the doors let the air in. Service was good and attentive. Many good food options for vegetarians.

This is such a GEM of a restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the Chef greeted us herself which made the experience that much better. The bartender was phenomenal and went out of her way to give my daughter a scoop of whip cream when she fussed she couldn’t have any of my adult drink. Food great. Drinks great. Music great. Staff friendly and kind. Atmosphere phenomenal. Highly recommend!

A great experience from the moment we walked in the door. Hostess was extremely helpful and attentive. Our waitress was also incredible. The drinks were so cool! I’d love to try them all! And the food was delicious! I ordered the sweet tea fried chicken and it was amazing. The decor and ambiance of the whole restaurant was very chill. Will definitely be back and hopefully to try the brunch menu next time!
