Home 231 creates a comfortable yet stylish restaurant that offers contemporary home-style cuisine, service and atmosphere. Our chef has created a menu that utilizes local products, ranging from meats and poultry, to farm fresh eggs and seasonal produce. Our food is described as simple and approachable American food with a modern touch. Join us indoors or outdoors on our courtyard and allow our servers to create a dining experience you will remember.

Our outside patio is booked on a first come first serve basis. Making a reservation for the courtyard does not guarantee the courtyard seating, but we do our very best to accommodate all requests. Private parties in the courtyard will move all requests for outside to our indoor dining room.

This is the 3rd time I have been here but first time for dinner. I can say, for the prices, I expected not to be hungry but I was when I left. I got the duck which was great but it wasn't enough. When I drop $30 for a plate, I expect to have more. That's all. Besides that, it was great. I'll stick to brunch there next time, more food for the money.

We went to Home 231 for New Years Eve brunch. The cocktails were fabulous. I had a Cranberry Orange Margarita and my husband went for the Maple Brown Sugar Manhattan which is garnished with a generous piece of candied bacon. Both were excellent.
I had the quiche of the day - very good, served in a small iron skillet with puffy pastry, husband had the shrimp and grits - EXCELLENT! We decided to end the meal with coffee and their home made donuts with three dipping sauces. We will definitely be back for lunch and dinner in the future. Don't miss this true neighborhood gem!

Great usual. One of our favorite go-to places on the weekend. The crab Eggs Benedict are exceptional. And don’t miss the donuts (even if you usually don’t like donuts).

Trevor, our server, was awesome!! Home 231 is one of our favorite restaurants for Sunday brunch and we love the local, neighborhood ambiance. The donuts are always a hit with my daughter.

Favorite Sunday brunch. This specific visit was for our New Year’s Eve brunch. The FIGGY SMALLS was absolutely delicious. I had the Eggs Benedict with crabcake! Our server, Alex, was outstanding. Very friendly and knowledgeable.

We’ve never been disappointed by Home. Christmas Eve brunch had a nice menu selection including some all time favorites. The Eggs Benedict and Fried Oyster Omelette we’re both delicious. Nice size portions and side dishes. Good ambience and service.
