    The food is amazing!! Everything is fresh. Everything is good on the menu. I had corn bread, the Yankee pot roast and split the apple pie with my son. We also took home some homemade chocolates and I look forward to trying that as well. My son got the fried chicken and waffle and it was delicious also! Eat here 😁

    It took a while to be seated despite having a reservation with my whole party there. The food wasn’t the quality I had in the past- scallops were burnt, collards greens were not flavorful. Our friends had requested pasta with certain items taken out and they had to wait for a new one due to mistakes from the kitchen. The hand crafted sodas were a bit sour despite being assured it was a sweet version. I just felt for the hoops I had to go through to book the reservation and confirm the reservation, it wasn’t the experience I had remembered in the past.

    Took my Auntie for her first meal there, and we had a wonderful time. Kayla did an awesome job taking care of us, she was extremely attentive and we took her suggestions on multiple items. Our drinks were refreshing and very enjoyable—sauvignon blanc and a paloma. All in all a great dinner/dining experience. Mahalo, Kayla!

    I like the food and location and have been a long time customer. But the last two times I had lunch here, it took 20 minutes for the table (w a reservation), 15 minutes for the server to take the order, and 30 minutes for lunch to arrive. Both times. And both times we ordered 2 main course salads (nothing to cook), so not sure what happened.

    Very good place, especially for the group. If you are planning to go for brunch over the weekend, I highly recommend reservation in advance, esp. for a group 3+. Our group had 4 adults and almost a 2-year old. Staff was very accommodating and helpful from choice of the table, through ordering and consumption of food.

    Do not be deceived by the high rankings of this very mediocre establishment! Some of the food was good (we got the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer – excellent!… But also opted for the crab and artichoke dip which was bland and very greasy.) Beyond the just OK starters, our meals may as well have been from the Cracker Barrel, but with prices that you would expect at a top-notch gastro pub (I ordered the fried chicken and waffles, and my wife l; the southern fried chicken salad, and both of the kids ordered extremely overpriced sandwiches – a bacon cheeseburger for $20 and a spicy fried chicken sandwich, also $20). The best part of any of our meals was my waffle, which would not have been as good had I not asked for the Cinnamon infused maple syrup that our server forgot to bring. Not a horrible dining experience, but the food was very overpriced and lackluster at best.

    Horrible experience. First I asked if I ordered the founders breakfast special which came with the regular French toast, if I substitute it with the banana foster French toast with the vanilla cream fill His response was “well I could put in and hope the chef does it”. So I don’t if I would get what I want until my food comes out? First strike. I then ordered my eggs scrambled. What came was a pile juicy, runny, eggs which I didn’t request. When I asked the waiter why my eggs came out so runny he told me I ordered my eggs soft scrambled which I had not. My friend who heard me order also chimed in and also told him I had in fact not ordered my eggs scrambled not soft scrambled. He told me he would come back with a plate for my eggs. When he came back he apologized and told me he confused my order with another table. He just took my eggs off my plate to be cooked more. The issue was the rest of my food was already soaked with juice of the runny eggs, my had browns, my French toast, I was never asked if preferred they remake my meal now that the egg juice had ruined the rest of my food. He just brought out the same eggs now cooked more. Second strike. Then I was never brought the syrup for my French toast and I had to ask the table beside me if I could please borrow their syrup. Third strike. The line for the bathrooms were ridiculous as well. You can bet I will never be returning.

    This was a disappointing experience and was recommended by many sites for kids. The bar service was slow, food was warm at best, the pot pie looked like a side dish and many of dessert items were not available. If you are looking to be impressed, this is not your spot.

    We were outside on an unseasonably cold day, and the heat lamps were insufficient. In addition, it took over 10 minutes for our server to bring menus and check in. I might not usually complain about this, but it was so cold! No complaints about the food barring that the dips portions were very small. (Two-ish tablespoons is not enough pimento cheese.) Most frustrating was navigating the outdoor section with my rollator. I do not expect everything to be set up for my unique needs but no effort was made to advise me on the best way to get through, to move heat lamps aside, etc.

    We were really looking forward to our reservation, as we’ve gone to the Georgetown location and had a great experience. We were seated pretty close to our reservation time. Our server was great but the food and drinks were underwhelming. One of party members ordered a Ricky that was way too sour. We ordered a Farmhouse platter that was very underwhelming in quantity and not anything exceptional in flavor. For $27, it should have really delivered more on both ends. The grill cheese and tomato soup was also just average. I ordered it because the bread was baked in house, but it didn’t do enough to counter the under buttered flavor and the use of a white cheese that wasn’t flavorful enough. The tomato soup was very acidic in flavor. Totally disappointing when compared to other restaurants commanding the same amount for a better tasting grill cheese soup & sandwich combo (ie, Boudin’s in San Francisco). So sad to write that I won’t be going back to this location as it definitely did not match the hype!

    Despite having a reservation, I had to wait 30 minutes to have my table. That was very disappointing. Apart from that, everything was ok

    Pretty loud. Very busy after the Easter Egg roll, which is to be expected. It took 10 minutes to get a can of Coke. Most of the food was good, but the shrimp risotto was dry.

    First timer and our service and experience was superb. Great option if you are a visitor as this location is only available on the east coast. Food is prepared with love. Definitely set a reservation as this is a popular dining selection so walk ins may experience long wait times

    Host stand was great. Bartender was very nice. Server started great. I hate onions and mushrooms. Before I order anything at any restaurant I look for those two items and if they can’t be taken out I don’t order it. I ordered a pasta that listed mushrooms but not onions in the ingredients. I requested the mushrooms be taken out and they were but then my pasta arrived FULL of onions which was not listed on the menu as an ingredient. We spent $170 and I left hungry. I didn’t return it because it was a busy holiday but I was disappointed. My girlfriend had the braised short rib and it was very good. Both dishes were like warm but we took them home and heated them up and I picked out as many onions as I could. I feel like our server should have noticed the appetizer plate full of onions that I was picking out of my pasta. The biscuits were the best I have ever had though. Served with butter and jam…amazing
