    The nachos for 14.00 serve four easily as an appetizer! The Have it all. .. . for 40.00 was a great selection and would feed 2-3 easily. The espresso martini is unbelievable! However, drinks are a little expensive. Great food and great place to visit.

    The Brisket and Mac & Cheese were amazing! The corn bread side for $5 was actually a tiny loaf and not worth the $ (even at happy hour discount). Server was friendly, but not very attentive. We were there pretty early so the noise wasn’t bad and there weren’t many people. Not sure what it would be like later.

    Food was very good - we got the try it all. The only part we weren’t happy with was the coleslaw. The portion was so small is was ridiculous. The ambiance is that of a sports bar with loud country music With less than good service despite us being one of the only customers there.

    The service was excellent and the drinks were wonderful, but I expected a little more around the food and it wasn't all that great, my Mac n Cheese was warn NOT hot and my husband had the southern sandwich and the bun wasn't even moist it was hard, I think there was a lot of hype around this place and when it came down to it, it was OK, but not outstanding.

    Overall experience was excellent and 10/10 would return. They offered us some free cinnamon rolls for a birthday we were celebrating, so definitely mention special occasions on your reservation if you're celebrating something. Food was very good except the cheddar cornbread which I didn't care for. And my breakfast sandwich was very messy but yummy. I ended up eating it with a knife and fork.

    We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered we came on Thursday $1 hot dog night! We bought a menagerie of the $3 specialty dogs and every single one of them was delicious. They had a nice variety of local beers on tap and the servers were very attentive. There was a dual bachelor/bachelorette party going on when we were there so there was a lot of screaming/yelling/cheering but I doubt the level of noise is common there.
