Entrees are massive, so one may buy more than needed. Otherwise, delicious and fun, and not at all crowded. Will definitely be back.

We chose Haymaker because it was highly rated for brunch. The menu was limited and our food was temperate. The coffee and service was good.

It’s ok, but nothing special. Food was good, prosecco was warm and flat. Not coming back. Expensive. No atmosphere. Service reminds of a local beer bar.

Food was delicious and beverage specials were spot on. Waitress warmed up eventually, but, her knowledge made up for her cool exterior.

Will be back---that bacon!!!

We went for the Woodford pairing and it was a fantastic experience. Amazing dishes and great service. Was a pleasure to meet the chef as well. Felt very safe and socially distanced given the current times, very clean. 10/10 would recommend and can’t wait to return for their regular menu.

I ordered the shrimp a la plancha (which means shrimp on a board but it’s basically shrimp and grits so the chef must not know the true meaning of the words “a la plancha”).

The grits were good. Not the best I’ve had but tasty enough.

My bf had the hot chicken breakfast sandwich, which he said was okay - not great or mind blowing.

The decor and ambiance is definitely better downstairs, we were up, which was fine.

Ordered two Old Fashioned’s with bacon-infused bourbon. They were okay. I love craft cocktails and for the price expected something a bit more elevated with the garnish, etc.

I actually ordered a side of bacon to make my own garnish.

For the price, I’ve definitely had better brunch experiences. Haymaker is fine. I’d go back, but just not anytime soon. A bit lackluster of an experience for me. Everything was “just okay” or “pretty good” not great by any means.

Cheers!

I ordered the Cinnamon Bread French Toast and scrambled eggs and OMG they were amazing! Great service and great food. There is a paid parking lot right across the street so it was convenient to get to.

Our eggs had to be sent back twice because they were cooked incorrrectly (the waitress was irritated with the kitchen about it). I found a piece of plastic in my biscuit. I didn’t say anything because at that point the egg issue had already happened. We were asked to leave so another party could be seated, which I could understand because of limited seating for COVID, but it was pretty abrupt and we were not there for an extended time. The food that we did eat was good, but it was not exceptional.
