    We were seated at 6:30 p.m. and didn't get our entrees until 8:30 p.m. We were told there was an issue with the order not getting put in or something like that. Not only was the wait super long, but they acted like we didn't notice. On a busy night, I would have been okay with a longer wait, but it wasn't busy at all. We chose this place due to farm-to-table, and the food was pretty good, but service, wait, etc., was so bad. Not sure I would go back. They did reduce our bill, but they are still not ok with how it was all handled.

    We came for brunch after church. Everything was great overall. Regrettably, your jalapeño sausage gravy and biscuits are no longer available. . It’s the reason we have come the past 5 or 6 times. And you no longer offer it. :( those of us who ordered your currently available sausage gravy and biscuits agreed it was disappointing. You had the very best sausage gravy in CLT, and now it’s “mid” as the kids said :) Still, thank you for a lovely experience otherwise.

    Thanks so much for leaving us a glowing review, even though we've changed up some menu items. This is great feedback and we are taking it under serious advisement with our kitchen team. We are alway open to this exact kind of input from our community. We'll keep you in the loop about any updates to our sausage and gravy plans, but hope you'll stop out for dinner or lunch in the meantime. Cheers!

    Attended an Easter Buffet where the food had been siting out for hours. Lettuce was wilted, food was dried out and and the casseroles stiff and unappetizing. Grossly overpriced for this diner quality food.

    Just ate at your restaurant for Brunch. Probably one of the most expensive experiences for the value received I have ever encountered. Essentially scrambled eggs, bacon and sliders for $60 per person. Food was very average with little selection. Dessert menu was substandard. Then they charged a 'large party' gratuity for 4 people?? Bad experience.

    Worst Easter brunch experience of my life basically spent $60 per person for bacon and eggs. Haymaker should be ashamed for charging that much for the spread they served. Sad. Won’t be back- wish i could get a refund!!

    The food was good but not as many options as I had hoped for an Easter Sunday Brunch and for the price.
