Very attractive restaurant where you can where very casual clothes. A neighborhood location and feel...parking was a slight challenge - a bit tight in the lot across the street.
We enjoyed our flight of bacon and the dipping sauces! (When Pigs Fly) We gobbled down the popcorn that was brought before our meal - I believe she said it was from a place nearby - very addictive!
I loved my "Get Shorty" entree. The meat was delicious and I am a succotash fan! I had to bring half of it home and it was delicious the next day too.
My husband was not a big fan of the Kentucky Colonel Bowl - not very much flavor and sort of dry. He asked for extra gravy which wasn't good. (reminded him of store-bought gravy in a jar) He did love the biscuits.

We've dined here a few times, and always enjoy what we get! We tried the crispy chicken skins; they can best be described as glorified pork rinds.. Delish! I got the April in Paris with chicken added; it is messy, but worth all the gooeyness getting everywhere. My boyfriend got the short ribs which seemed to be a hit with him! I wasn't too pleased with the cocktail I ordered: the spa water or whatever. I love gin, but not my cup of tea. Craft Beer selection changes often, a facet which we love! Our server JT was friendly, he answered a million and one questions I threw at him.

We like taking our time, and usually ask for the meal to be paced so it wasn't a big deal, but get ready to wait a bit longer than average for anything here.

The most difficult part was deciding what to order. So many of the items were unique and sounded wonderful. My sister-in-law and I split the Holy Guacamole and had ample to eat. Both of our husbands enjoyed their food as well. We will go back for sure.

The food was to die for; I ordered the braised pork shank and mascarpone mashed potatoes. Not only were the pork cooked perfectly (falling off the bone), but the potatoes were super creamy. The atmosphere has an industrial feel to it, with exposed piping and brick. It's also very warm, romantic, and comfortable; the lighting was dim and the walls were filled with an eclectic mix of bottles, goods for sale, and artwork. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable and was able to recommend safe dishes for those of us who are visiting for the first time. We celebrated our anniversary there, and when the staff found out, we were offered a dessert to take with us. I was just blown away by the hospitality and fantastic dining experience. We will be back!

The food is different and eclectic...but the menu is very overwhelming. And if you are on a diet, or don't like eating fatty/heavy meals, you are out of luck. Everything either is deep-fried, has bacon, and/or jalapeños. Our server Mackenzie was the best server I've had anywhere in a long time! She was super friendly, right on top of our needs, and knowledgeable on making recommendations.

Been looking forward to trying Datz for sometime. Great interior vibe decor as expected but food was disappointing. Had the recommended truffle fries which came warm and soggy ($10 for fries and not even hot or crisp??). Wife ordered the popular waffles and tweet, waffles were bland and tasted old/stales. Chciken was good with a nice crunchy exterior. I had the "April in Paris" sandwich was very good but the popular chips with blue cheese drizzle not so much. I would try Datz again but likely for brunch, but if my recent visit tells me anything it's not to get my hopes up.

The next door "Dough" location also is ho hum with nothing spectacular. Took a few donuts home for the family and even those were stale and boring.

Most of the food was terrific (omelette was dry), and nicely presented. Of course, parking is a challenge in this neighborhood.

Hate the fact that you can't reserve during peak times, but the food is fantastic. The pork shank was phenominal. Never a bad meal here.

The reason I chose DATZ for brunch was because they have a fried chicken and waffle benedict and I have a Chicken and waffles addiction... It was every bit as delicious as I anticipated. However, I had a 930am reservation and when I tried to order a Bloody mary, I was told they don't serve alcohol before 11. This is important to know in advance. Additionally, there were a lot of children around and that was not hangover-friendly, especially without a Bloody! The service was okay. Waiter was cute, but not super helpful. I was disappointed in the grits-- not particularly cheesy, and they were very gelatinous. The bacon infused potatoes were cooked well but overwhelming flavor of bacon and not potato.

Waiting for all in party to arrive before being seated is ostentatious and pedantic. Grow up and serve the customer

It was my first time there. The food was amazing. The service was great. Wine list needs to be updated. There were some cocktails that was on the list but they did not make it anymore. Overall I had a wonderful experience.

We loved the pulled pork, chips, bread, cole slaw, meatloaf and succotash. Everything was excellent especially our server Maggie. She is an
excellent server with the personality to go with it. She deserves a raise!

Our reservation was at 9:45 PM on a Saturday night. While the food was delicious, it took FOREVER. The drinks were not cold. At 10:58 PM, the waiter told us that the bar was closed and he could not get us a second round of drinks, even though he NEVER told us that it'd be cclosing. He never asked how our food was either. The whole experience sucked. Don't go if you want to be treated well and enjoy your meal. Very disappointed.

May experience was great. You really do a good job. My date and I enjoyed everything. Our server Logan was funny, prompt, and had a great knowledge of the menu. He helped me decide on the stuffed meatloaf and I couldn't be happier. It was great. The veggies were perfect. My date had the shrimp and grits. The grits were some of the best I've ever tasted. You guys do a great job and should be proud of your work. Thank you for the great experience.

Fun, funky and relaxed with an extensive beer, wine and bar selection and tasty modern takes on some classic comfort foods. Don't forget to save room for dessert, or a least grab something delicious to go! Highly recommended for brunch, lunch, or after-work gatherings. The staff is very accommodating and attentive.

We have dined here many times and always been very happy. This was the first time we have not been happy. Food was cold when we eventually received it. Service was so so.. strange things like being served cream for the coffee in plastic to-go ramekins. About the best thing this meal was the coffee.
This was Sunday brunch and I know they get packed, but we arrived at 8:40 AM and it was not busy at that time.
Not sure what happened, but this is the first time we have ever been unhappy with a meal here. I regret not addressing the problems at the time but we were both so unhappy we just wanted to get out of there.
I hope this was just an off day. We always bring guest from out of town here and I hope this was just a one off bad meal.

Came for dinner & drinks with a friend...my 3rd visit (other 2 times were for brunch). We had a great table upstairs where we were able to chat, our server Gabby was great, the food was fantastic and the beer list is no less than impressive! Can't wait to come back!

Came here for my birthday with friends. It was an excellent breakfast! My only issue was that my dish did not actually come as the menu described it- no pastry crumbles on the nutella french toast! Everything was delicious though

We started with a cinnamon roll with bacon. It arrived cool to the touch and was stale. The eggs benedict with pastrami - the pastrami was over salted otherwise it was good. The fresh fruit was canned pineapple and fresh raspberries. The chicken fried waffle benedict was excellent. I would try Datz again for lunch.
