Food was good... not GREAT as it has been in the past. I suspect that they are hurting for qualified and experienced staff members like so many other restaurants. Any and every restaurant in the COVID era has suffered from a service standpoint. I think it will change very soon... as they just seemed understaffed. I'm looking forward to coming back in the near future to see if things have improved.

My shrimp and grits were among the best I have ever eaten! Loved the addition of the egg. My husband had the chicken Caesar and gave it 2 thumbs up.
Brandon, our waiter, was wonderful. He was attentive without being annoying.
Noise level was high which is why I only gave the restaurant a 4 rating.
I would like to go back again when it is not a holiday and see if the noise level is less.

The ribeye steak was way under-done, full of fat, and had a weird taste. It also had a unappealing presentation of this bloody piece of meat covering a bed of greasy French fries. Not appetizing. You can do way better folks. The salmon dish was excellent, although a little on the bland side. The chicken cast iron dish was okay - again, super bland. And the fried chicken sandwich my husband ordered is far outshined by the cheaper version you can get at Popeyes fast food chain. So, I am overall not happy with the food, given the price and expectations of the quality of food typically seen from the Adair family.

I’ve wanted to dine here for years and was not disappointed. Tried two appetizers off of the “test menu” (poblano hush puppies and lamb meatballs and they were terrific. The service was fabulous and the main course (chicken and dumplings) had a different take than I was expecting but liked it even more than I was expecting! Absolute recommend.

Have loved this restaurant since it opened, but unfortunately it was not a great experience this time. Not sure if this was just an off night or if it’s going downhill, but both food and service were not that great.

It was my birthday. Food was delicious. My friends benedict had the wrong meat. Then there were two sides that weren’t brought out. Besides that the server was friendly, and the ambience was great. Expected some sort of discount for the several inconveniences with the food.

Made reservation for outdoor seating, was not available. Eggs benedict was warm at best, biscuit was tough and felt like our food had been sitting out for a while and not hot. Had mimosas and was brought wine instead of champagne at one time. Extremely loud and hard to hear our own conversation at the table.

Went today for brunch. I ordered the Biscuits Benedict. Very disappointed. Pulled pork was very bland and poached eggs were hard boiled. My partners burger was good but overall, not the normal experience we get here.

We loved the service and we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. We ordered shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and brussels sprouts. Everything was really good, but I would have to say the shrimp and grits were my favorite.

Definitely a place that is more tuned to a late-night drinks crowd than anyone looking for a serious meal. The calamari was good, as was the wine. Stay and have an appetizer with some friends.
