    1st of all Vonda is excellent and we love her. We waited so long for our food but it was the kitchen fault, had soggy sausage patties. Justin should not be a manager, not friendly, very unprofessional with Vonda and other staff and was heard screaming at staff. He should be removed. We love Greg, Karen, Vonda and her daughter. Never had a bad experience before but he needs to go

    Greg Alexander and his entire staff were top-notch!! We had a party of 13 after a local graduation, and our graduate was treated like royalty! The food was phenomenal, the drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere was world-class. The photos take we took outside were breathtaking! We will DEFINITELY return here again and again.

    Overall, our cocktails and meals were good, but the service left a lot to be desired, in spite of the fact that there were not many diners on a weekday evening. It took a very long time for cocktails to be served, as well as each course.

Better than restaurants I’ve been at in Chicago and New York. They run a tight ship and it shows. Special shout out to our server, Lauren and Jason the MOD. Will definitely be back!

    The food was pretty good. My husband had the shrimp po boy. He liked it. I had the cab cake salad. The crab cakes and remoulade were very good but there were too many salad greens with no dressing. I asked for a side of dressing and got some honey vinegarette, which was excellent.
