Takeout & Delivery are available via our website, Caviar, and GrubHub. Due to the current restrictions, we are requiring reservations for both indoor & outdoor dining. There are three options for seating: Standard (Indoors), High-Top (Indoors), and Outdoors. If one of these options does not appear, it is because we are currently booked for that type of seating during the date & time you are seeking. The maximum party size currently allowed by the state is 6 and you will be required to wear a mask when not at the table. We ask that guests do not exceed 1.5 hours per table to allow us time to properly sanitize in between seatings. We offer a ten minute grace period and ask that you call us if you will be running late or your reservation may be cancelled. All outdoor patio reservations are subject to being canceled in the event of severe rain. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon!

You always expect to break the bank and leave hungry when you dine in the city. The server suggested 2 plates per person, but if you go for the house special friend boneless chicken thighs and recommended biscuits cut that back to 1.5 plates per person. Biscuits were more like cake and the chicken was moist and crunchy. Swordfish was probably my favorite, and while I heard the shrimp were spicy they were not melting my lips like some spicy foods do. Loved the Bourbon smash with blackberry, very light and refreshing. Left full and content.

Food was really good and fast, and service was great. Our only issue was when we ordered dessert, it took almost 30 min to arrive. Longer than any of the food had taken. Next time we would just skip dessert. Overall great place!

The food was delicious but a bit on the heavy side. The chairs in the outdoor seating were not particularly comfortable. Our waiter was not what you would call effusively warm but he was generally attentive. He overestimated how many plates we would need to order so we ended up with a bunch of leftovers. But overall a good experience.

Everything on the menu sounds amazing, but execution of the dishes is unimpressive. Had the hand pies and the fried chicken and there was no attention to presentation and plating. Items come plain - just on the plate with sauces in metal dishes - or in the case of shrimp and grits - it was just a hot, soupy mess in a small skillet. It would be good to expand the beer selection as well.

We left after 15 minutes of being seated and no further acknowledgement. Saw a nearby table that arrived after us get greeted and served drinks. As we were leaving a waiter came by and said he didn’t know he had tables on the patio. Disappointed as wanted to try their food but terrible service prevented it.

They were out of a few items on the menu we ordered and had to re select a few times which stunk, it felt understaffed (not sure if that was the case) due to the waits between placing orders and interactions with our waiter. Even with all of this I will say our waiter was very kind, polite and still great to interact with.

We still love this place, one okay experience will not sway us from getting those biscuits!

We were looking forward to B&B but unfortunately were a bit disappointed. The honey-glazed biscuits are awesome and the mac and cheese is excellent. The fried chicken is good, although it could use a little more seasoning. The sauces were average. The "caramelized" sweet potatoes were actually burnt. But what was most disappointing was the way that they served the food. They served our meal as if we had ordered tapas. So, for instance, they brought the mac and cheese out within five minutes of our order, ahead of the salads, oysters, chicken, and other side dishes. In fact, they did not bring out the oysters (what we typically think of as appetizers) until about 20 minutes after all of the other food was served. Also, two people got their fried chicken about five minutes before the third person in our party. B&B is a cute space, but they need to do a better job of either timing the meal or letting diners know that dishes come out as soon as they are ready.

Food was over priced and bland especially bad where the biscuits which seemed more like led shot than anything else. Drinks watered down and they don’t bring you a proper check but standover you with a portable machine. Can’t believe the positive reviews this place has gotten and that they opened up a second location.
