had a reservation and called 10 minutes before the reservation and two times, no answer; third time the phone was answered and we indicated we would be about 10 minutes late due to traffic. We were told our table was ready and waiting and it was not a problem. We knew we would make it in the 15 minute window but wanted to let the restaurant know. Got there and there was not a table and they tried to sit us outside in December. We were able to stay inside and squeeze into a booth. Took 30 minutes to get drinks, and 45 minutes to get food. They were out of ribs and brisket. We understand that times are tough with supply chain and serving staff; however, were disappointed about the reservation and not having a table for 8 ready when told it was.......

Overall it was good, until a man came in to pick up his order and he wasn't happy with what he got. He said the F... word no less than 25 times.

Our server, Fanieshia, was prompt, pleasant, and did a great job with our order and keeping our drinks fresh.
Food was very good.
Bar pours were generous.

Made a reservation far in advance. Arrived and we were told the restaurant was closed for a private event. Really???? Please let me know, so I can book another location.

They were busy, but had open tables. I know every restaurant is short handed due to covid, and I am not one to complain - but the bloody mary I ordered at the begining of the meal arrived at dessert course/ when I had only 3 bites left. I ordered the "Manhattan" first, and that was "sold out" - yet, the bottle of bourbon was front and center on bar as I exited = WTF?
