    The corn bread was maybe the best I’ve ever had ever! The brisket sandwich was a bit small & over cooked for the price but the food was so good overall. I didn’t realize it was a “townie bar” but it was fun. Loud & definitely poppin on a Saturday night! Glad we made a reservation.

    We ordered appetizers and did not receive until after the mains. The food was amazing. The bus people were a bit over zealous, immediately plates/glasses were removed. Maybe a bit too quickly. All they being said, we loved the food and atmosphere

    This is a really cool place. It’s small, cozy and so much to look at as far as decor. The staff were super helpful and friendly. We had the Bloody Mary and a Watermelon gin drink which were both excellently prepared. The fried pickles were warm, coated well and the batter wasn’t too thick or to small. The chicken and waffle was so good…. Will def come back for dinner and live music and around Christmas for the holiday decor. Thanks for a great brunch experience!

    Food was great. However we were very disappointed in the overall experience. We had dinner reservations for 7pm. They seated us along a wall that was jam packed with people standing, partying, dancing, and very drunk. People kept putting their drinks on our table. Not to mention the dj right next to us and the speaker above our head. We could not hear a single thing each other was saying. Nor could the waitress hear us. It felt like we were in the middle of a club. Also, our table was 2 smaller tables pushed together, but we sat around 1 of the small tables with chair that was on the end to try to hear each other better. So then 2 other people got seated AT our table by a hostess. It was like we were at a communal table or something …only it wasnt supposed to be. We are all for having live music and people have a great time…but maybe dont seat people WITH dinner reservations in that section.

    Everything was great but the music is loud. I didn’t realize how loud the place is. It’s probably meant for a younger crowd. The food was great but because of the loud music I don’t think I would come back.

    Everything's just okay. Our server was nice. The dessert was yummy... the beignets (although more doughnut like), satisfying. My entire party wasn't overjoyed overall, unfortunately.

    My boyfriend and I came for dinner around 6:30, the band was set up and ready to go by about 7/7:15. AMAZING band. AMAZING food. Vibes were immaculate. He got the gumbo which he is still talking about and telling everyone. I got the Mac and cheese which was average. We loooooved the brisket sliders and the hush puppies. We will be back!

    Cozy spot at the booth high tops. The drinks were well made. We got Beignets for the table and they were so good we got 2 orders to go. Smash burger was killer. We’ll be back as I want to try the waffles and chicken. Our server was fab!

    Multiple issues when dining here, recommend going elsewhere. There were multiple items on the menu not available. Strawberry salad tasted dirty the lettuce was so bad. Barely any dressing. Cornbread had an entire ice cream size scoop of butter on it.. really gross. Only thing that was good was the chicken. Service was slow and the place was empty. Unfortunately will not be back

    Absolutely amazing! The hostess was new so she took a little bit longer to deal with seating us and our reservation. The waitress was witty and attentive! THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE!!! We currently live in Nashville and this southern food hit the spot for us!!! HIGHLY recommend to anyone who enjoys southern food. We ordered a few things to split including the hot chicken sandwich that the staff was nice enough to cut in half for us to enjoy!!!

    Very good food and ambiance but the service was quite slow- I believe it was due to lack of staff becuase they were training new servers when we were there but overall very good dinner and will be returning.

    I’m from Louisiana and LOVED this place. Exactly what I was looking for - elevated comfort food. SO SO much better than buttermilk and bourbon (both in terms of food and drinks). Came here on a date and got the cheese dip as well as the shrimp and grits. Both super flavorful and tasty. Got two tequila drinks, can’t remember what they were, but were really good! Will definitely be coming back!
