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!

Great restaurant! We got the alligator fries, crab dip, fried chicken and beignets. Everything was delicious. I wish they would have turned on the heating lamps sooner as fall has officially started in Boston. Other than that everything was great! I would come back.

In this pandemic time where most restaurants are not surviving, i would expect better service. We waited so long that we had to go and ask the M'aitre D when will we be served. Our food came out incomplete, the eggs first, then the pancakes, they forgot our sausages by that time the eggs were cold. My chicken and waffle...the chicken was burnt and I had no syrup for my waffle. Overall just a bad experience.

Overall was disappointed eating here. I was really excited about it because I had heard great things but the oysters we had were pretty bad, and the fried chicken sliders were good but not as great as expected. And the drinks were not a great value. Also, the service that we got was not great. Our waiter seems uninterested and when he gave us the check he didn't even wish us a good night or thanked us for coming. Overall, just not great. Wouldn't recommend.

Did not like this place at all. We showed up on time for our reservation.. still waiting about 15 mintues and were told if we wanted to sit outdoors they could seat us but the people that were at our table indoors were late and it would be awhile before we could sit down. We took the table outdoors.. ordered our food.. mine came out wrong the waitress didnt even listen to me... just paid for food I didnt eat. Wont be going back there nor would I recomend to anyone I knew and liked

This is a small plates sharing menu. Very good - we had chicken, Mac and cheese, sliders, biscuits, and the grilled broccoli salad with baby kale. I would not recommend the salad. It was not grilled and there was more baby kale than broccoli (only 4 or five small pieces). Food is delivered to your table as it is ready so it is arriving at random times throughout your meal. Service was decent and the patio is very pleasant.

Went for brunch and shared the chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, and beignets a la mode. Everything was delicious. The chicken and waffles comes with three huge boneless chicken thighs, so is well worth the $20 price tag. The ice cream with the beignets was a delicious soft serve, seemed home made. The beignets themselves were amazing - I’m very picky with them as I don’t usually like things made from fried dough but these were amazing.

Server was not very attentive. He was also working behind the bar. I got the Nashville hot chicken thighs. There was no spice at all to the dredge, and very thin thighs. Very surprised to see no sandwich option available. Also, weird that there was no ranch available as a side. $14 for to skinny thighs. When hot Chix has a huge chicken breast/thigh as a sandwich with slaw, sauce and pickle for $12. Just didn’t seem like a dish at all. My friend had Mac and cheese and croquets that he liked. But, definitely not impressed as I had much high expectations.

Lightning for outdoor dining could improve, I could barely see the menu or what we were eating, had to use the flashlight of my iPhone during the entire time. Food is good though, and the waiter was splendid.

The Resturant was very nice with great relaxed dining atmosphere. The hostess and management were all very friendly especially our server Jonathan ( very patient ) . We were not impressed with the food at all. The menu was not the same as the one on the open table app and there were not as many options. To be honest we heard a lot of great reviews from this Resturant but the food was not the best in our experience.

We feasted on biscuits that were flaky, buttery, and delicious, fried chicken sliders that were so moist the juices ran down our chins, rich shrimp and grits, shrimp cocktail with enormous succulent shrimp, and a heavenly soft serve for dessert! Service was impeccable!

I love the overall vibe of this restaurant I was here with my family for a reunion and the wait was ridiculous considering that we had a reservation for 8 PM. But I do understand that it was very busy and it was a Sunday night. Once we ordered the food the whole thing turned around for me. Every dish that came out was exquisite, we were a large party so we ordered 90% of the menu. The drinks were really good and the food was amazing and I would definitely go back if I’m in the area.
