Mixed feelings about Hen Quarter. Have been looking forward to trying brunch since before COVID. Host staff and manager were very friendly, and manager checked in on us. Server was slow and not as friendly. We had a couple problems, but they were fixed. At one point I was out of both mimosa and water for at least 5 minutes and then someone brought two mimosas. Half our appetizer order was wrong, and they left the incorrect item for us anyway and brought 2 of what we had ordered, which was nice. However, the taste also was hit or miss. The caesar salad appeared to have been tossed hours earlier--it was limp and far overdressed, almost more like a cole slaw. The fried chicken was crunchy and juicy but had had no salt whatsoever, though the accompanying waffle was tasty. The hush puppies were excellent, and the deviled eggs tasty. The eggs bene were also tasty, except the edges of the biscuit were rock hard, as though it had been sitting out for hours. Finally, the shrimp and grits were delicious. Overall, the staff did their best and made up for a couple service issues, but the inconsistent quality of food coming out of the kitchen was disappointing.

Excellent greeting by the host, fast table seating, clean tables + compliant with COVID restrictions. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Wait staff is very courteous and attentive, and the manager came over to the table twice to ensure our visit was satisfactory! Definitely will visit this location again!

We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation and they were able to seat us. The tables were spaced out and it was a cozy atmosphere. The waitress was friendly and the wait time for the food wasn’t long. Everything was delicious, we’ll definitely go back.

Great food and really good portions. They took a little long to come around and offer more food (unlimited brunch) and also took a long time to clear the table of dirty dishes

I understand the need to keep the restaurant table turn over happening, especially on a busy Sunday, but it was almost like if you weren't watching your watch and the time, a buzzer was going to go off and you were going to be booted from your seat!
Love this place hands down, but lighten up on making people feel uncomfortable about time!

The shrimp and grits were delicious!! Someone should be more mindful of newcomers. We stood at the entrance of the restaurant waiting to be seated and had no idea we were suppose to head upstairs for our reservations. We are definitely planning to come back!

Really delicious food - we both ordered the HQ platter, but I subbed grits for the mashed potatoes. By the end of my meal, the only thing remaining on my plate was the chicken bones!

The waiter wasn’t attentive , the table next to us got way better service. Probably due to the color of our skin. The eggs tasted very old and shortly after eating our entrees my friend got very sick. The place has great potential but too bad I didn’t get to experience it.

Service was less than average. Also you are placed on a strict 2 hour dining minimum, and will be asked to leave promptly at the 1 hour 55 minute mark. Service was lack luster and some what unpolished.
