We went there for my husband’s birthday as he loves their chicken and waffles and this was his only request. We’ve only been to the one in Dc in the past. Tyson’s websites specifically advertises their chicken and waffles even under the weekend brunch description. However, when we got there, the only option they had for food was the $32 buffet with no other menu options. When asked about the chicken and waffles, the waiter told us that they do not carry waffles on the buffet, but have a variety of other food. My husband was disappointed and we ended up leaving as we did not feel like spending $32 per person on way more food than we would be able to eat.

Hostess failed to inform wait staff that reservation noted special occasion-birthday. Wait staff apologetic & brought complimentary dessert with candle.

It was great! Food was fantastic and service was attentive. It was hard to flag down my waiter a few times, but it wasn’t a dealbreaker. Love this place!

The food was good. The service was a tad slow, but overall it was worth it.

We got the NY Strip and Filet - both were properly cooked, and well seasoned. I had the carrot cake for dessert which was generously portioned very moist. My only real gripe is that the water doesn’t taste great.

I felt the atmosphere was very nice but the food was overpriced and underwhelming. It's a great concept but needs some fine tuning. For example, the steak was not as good as some we have grilled at home and for $38 it should be. The pot pie lacked substance. The biscuits were hard. The fried green tomatoes were bland. The fried chicken was good but not great. Grits were lumpy and dry. I didn't have an alcoholic beverage but I was told the whiskey sour was excellent. If the prices were lower I would return but for those prices I expect a better experience.

Nice family meal experience.

Absolutely too much noise. Had to raise our voices to speak with one another and be heard. No doubt the loudest and most distracting restaurant I have ever been to. Wpuld never recommend for a gathering where people want to have a relaxing noon meal.
