The food was great and the ambiance was vibrant. Our Server wasn’t very attentive to our table this time around and she neglected to inform us of the kitchen’s last call so when we asked for our refill she looked at us like we should have known that it was past the time. I didn’t think they were that busy but either way, this wasn’t their best day in being attentive. I’ve been there before and have had better service. I also waited a very long time for them to come clean up my table and bring me my check.

Overall, we had a very pleasant experience. The host was attentive and our server was great. There was a delay in receiving our food. I’m not sure if the ticket got lost or what, but we knew something was wrong when other tables around us, that arrived after us, had received our food. When the server realized, he extended his apologies and they offered us complimentary mimosas & deviled eggs from the chef while we waited. This took the hunger edge off! When we did receive the food, it was totally worth the wait. I got the French toast & he got the chicken & waffles. Very delicious! Also, received a % off the bill. Now that’s how you reconcile an oversight! You can tell how much they value their customers.

This was our first trip to a dine-in restaurant in eight months and Hen Quarter did not disappoint. We felt very safe and they followed social distance and mask wearing protocols. We came to celebrate my mom’s birthday with a Saturday brunch. The family style menu was great. Our favorite menu items were the mimosas, jalapeño hush puppies, cheese grits, fried chicken, and waffles. The staff were very friendly and provided great customer service. Will definitely be back.

This was my second visit. First visit was next to a window (which I requested the second time but wasn’t accommodated) and it was on the side of restaurant facing intersection which was quiet. The second visit was on the opposite side which was filled with noise. My fiancé (his first visit) thought the food was just ok but the noise made it almost unbearable. The atmosphere caters to young adults who are enjoying the unlimited mimosa’s and ability to order additional plates for later consumption for the single buffet price. This is not the location for an upscale brunch date In which you are interested in carrying on a private conversation at your table.

The food was good. The service was a little slow, but I think there was only one server working the whole floor, so I was totally okay with this. Gave us time to catch up with friend. Tip: The ribs are big enough to share between 2-3 people.

The manager was great. Literally running all over the place doin several jobs. Poor guy. We had two drinks each, an appetizer and an entree each. Got a little pricey....but cost of doing business I guess. Food was delicious

We were greeted upon arrival and escorted upstairs. The hostess introduced herself and informed us who our waiter would be. Zack was ready and placed the glass of water on our table. He provided great recommendations and we enjoyed every bite!

The food was excellent! Our party of 3 ordered three different entrees with appetizers and everything was delicious. Our server, Randy, was helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. All of the staff exercised Covid safety measures. This was our 1st time eating INSIDE of a restaurant since February 2019 and we felt safe. Will definitely return for either their bottomless brunch or when they have returned to full menu.
