Nice spot, but for the same price I could have taken my date to Oak Statehouse for a real amazing meal.
Maybe a better brunch spot than a first date location.

Highly overrated....As a Southerner, I expected good Southern food but what I received was mediocre at best. Nice setting but probably wouldn't go back.

The portion of the good was good, however the taste of the food was not that great. Bottomless Mimosas should be included part of the brunch as a set price. I.e. Brunch w/Bottomless Mimosas $33.95 and Brunch w/o Bottomless Mimosas $23.95. To refill the mimosas was a 35 cent fee. Not that many great options to choose from when it came to the food. Even though it's served family style, should have the option to take the food home. I would not returned. The only thing I liked was the service.

We had a party of seven and they were able to accommodate us after about 15 minutes. However, there were two separate reservations made. I made one for 4 and my daughter made one for 3 b/c we were told that they would not be able to seat us together. So we decided to take a chance and it paid off. We were seated together and had a great time. Will definitely be back again.

The food wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. We had the shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and hash browns and bacon. The food is good portioned sized but seemed very under seasoned. The deviled eggs were good, wished everything else tasted like that.

The family style brunch is the way to go. The deviled eggs were the best I've ever had at a restaurant. They have a little kick to them but it's not too much. The hushpuppies were delicious. The chicken could have been seasoned a little more but overall everything was good. Lemlem, (I hope I spelled her name correctly) was phenomenal! Supervisor service!!! I'd definitely go back.

First time going to Hen Quarter and the food was delightful.. Service was also pretty good. It wasn’t too noisy and there no long wait for food. Only disappoint was if staff are required to wear a face mask then it should be a face mask. Our waiter was wearing a gaiter neck that kept slipping below his nose, which he kept having to touch his face to put it on properly.

This was our first time here. My husband and I were here for brunch. The food was good but our server was not. He was distracted and not very attentive. We Had to ask for basic items like straws and napkins multiple times. We asked for syrup for our French toast only to wait literally 25 mins before getting it. By that time, the food was cold and we ended up not even eating it.

Brunch with out of town guests. Sat right away. Server Eli was good but didn’t tell us about drink specials. I heard him tell the next table. Didn’t place our side order of potatoes. Food was good but came out a little too quickly, same time as our starters. Love the donuts. Put the chicken cracklings back on the menu please.

Came for brunch. Not understanding the shared brunch option, we inquired. We told that it was written on the menu how the shared option worked. The server’s shortness and tone was off putting. Food portion was adequate, yet a bit bland. Server was slow to return to the table to ask if we needed anything such as another round of drinks. The concept of the shared brunch is nice but for the price point the service and food should be better.

Ordered the Family Style Brunch for 2, and it was great. Only complaint; the entree’s came out minutes after getting our starters and salad. May not seem like much, but I would have preferred to have finished the salad and starters first before the entrees. Too much food to digest that fast, so we ended up taking our entree home.

We are brunch on a Saturday. We arrived at opening hours. The service was prompt, kind and accurate.We did the family style option and the food was plentiful and cheap for the amount of food you were served. All the food was scrumptious! Can't wait to return. Go hungry!

Service was excellent and we had a really good time here. The food was great and came out quickly as well. There was definitely a nice variety of food and the portions were large enough that you'll be satisfied- and is worth the cost (which isn't too much anyway). I'll definitely come again!
