We sat outside so my noise evaluation was not for the inside of the restaurant which was much louder. Our server was wonderful with my 11 year old granddaughter whose birthday we were celebrating with brunch. He kidded with her and helped her with her choices, enduring her changes in the composition of the dishes. It was an enjoyable afternoon despite the windy day. We were somewhat sheltered from the wind on the 11th street side of the restaurant.

Great place. Great food. Service is great too. This time the kitchen was a little slammed and so it took quite a while to get our food. But that was unusual.

The Green Pig was one of our favorites before COVID and
This is our first time back since everything shut down in March 2020. We were disappointed to see that the menu had changed quite dramatically and all of the small plates that were our favorites had been taken off the menu. The food was OK but not some thing that we want to go back for. The drinks and wine selection were still very good. The service was good they are very dog friendly so that is always a good thing in the neighborhood.

We had a couple of small plates and it was plenty for two people. My favorite was the chicken and biscuit but also had the ribs and quinoa cakes. Great food, great wine, great patio

Always a great atmosphere with outdoor seating and attentive staff, as well quality seasonal fare. Super wine specials on the Thursday we were there. A neighborhood restaurant that shouldn't be missed.

At times the noise was a little overwhelming… fortunately it was not too crowded … but it should be noted that it could be very loud … much louder and it would not have worked for us …

The place is clean, modern and bright. Everything else was not good. Server was not friendly, she was there to take out orders and that was it. She did check once to see how the food was. The food was not good. My friend and I ordered huevos rancheros. It was not what we were expecting. Basically, it was a taco tortilla with shredded pork covered with an egg and cheese. Itge food was not hot, the egg was overcooked, the meat was salty.
I don't think I will go back.

We had a really nice night at Green Pig. The staff was really hustling and very friendly. The lobster and heart of palm dip...delish! Everyone enjoyed their entrees and shared desserts.

The food is excellent! I order the pork benedict, and the pork medallions were perfectly prepared. We also got an order of the cinnamon rolls to start, and they were truly delicious. Not too sweet and the perfect amount of icing.

It was a little bit loud, but what else can you expect for a Sunday brunch?

I simply love the food here. But please keep it a secret bc I want it to remain a neighborhood gem. Lol. My fav is the Wednesday special salmon over shrimp and seafood mix. Never tasted a seafood dish like it—will return on another Wednesday so I can order it again. Also tasted the pork cassoulet and is equally delicious. Our guests had the ravioli and the cheeseburger. Both scrumptious. Outdoor seating is delightful. They always decorate for the seasons —- and they welcome dogs at your outdoor table. What a great place. Dante is an amazing host and super friendly guy as is Ali. Green Pig has a talented female chef. They need to keep her for years and years—rare to find a chef so good at pork AND seafood AND vegetarian entrees

Always a good time at Green Pig brunch! Bar service was prompt and the shrimp and grits is amazing, so is the breakfast sandwich with house-made sausage. Both have a little spice to them that make them addictive.

I met a friend here for brunch, we ate outside and had a wonderful afternoon. The Aperol Spritz was one of the best I’ve had, and the veggie-stuffed waffle was delicious, fun, and new to me. My friend had the breakfast sandwich which was a wonderful monster of a sandwich - highly recommend for anyone going hungry. I will definitely be back, next time to try the cinnamon rolls!

Was very disappointed that we were sat in between two other tables less than 3 feet away on either side when there were empty tables, and that our waitress did not wear a mask at all. All the other employees that we saw were wearing a mask, however. Food came out quickly, as ordered, with no problems and overall we really like this restaurant, we were just baffled as to the lack of covid-awareness on this occasion.

We ate outside and really enjoyed the experience. Our waiter was excellent and really made the whole evening great. We were treated with much care and a bit of humor mixed in.

The food was fantastic and the portions were more than enough to take some home with us. Try the lobster dip appetizer, it’s out of this world.

We’ll definitely be back.
