I was just searching for a new (to us) brunch spot to take my BF to for his birthday. We went this past Sunday. I loved it!

The greeting and decor were nice. I was surprised it wasn't more crowded.

Our waitress, Damaris, was the best. She greeted us with the friendliest greeting and gave us excellent service the entire time. This is the type of restaurant where all the employees chip in--if they see you need something, they will stop by and help you. Management is doing a great job!

The food was delicious!! We got the fries and rib tip mac & cheese as apps. Both were so good. I'm very critical of mac & cheese, but this was some good mac & cheese! The fries came with ketchup and some kind of light yellow sauce. I preferred the yellow sauce because It nicely complemented the fries without overpowering the garlic + parmesan of the fries.

They also brought us a little complimentary app bite, which was nice.

For my main, I got the crab soup & cornbread and my BF got the chicken and waffles. I wanted to get the fish sandwich as well, but learned it was not available. I scrambled to find a replacement, but I was kind of set on the fish and after confirming with Damaris that what we had already ordered should be enough, I decided to just go with the soup. Glad we stuck with that because I was almost full after the apps, which we didn't even finish. We ended up taking some of everything home, so portion size was definitely good.

My BF loved his chicken & waffles. He was very happy with how the waffle was prepared. Light and crispy on the edges. He also mentioned that the chicken was nice and moist.

I didn't love the soup. The flavor was good, but it was too concentrated/overpowering. It seemed like it would be better as a seafood sauce than a soup. I would have toned it down with some coconut milk. I ended up taking most of it home, where I'll do just that. No big deal because it's not going to waste and I was already pretty stuffed by the time it came. But I wou

Good, friendly service from Damaris and good food. Lamb stew had hardly any lamb in it, but snapper was one of the best fish dishes I’ve ever had. Mai tai was served in a really cute way. Good place over all, but not sure if it was worth the price.

Food was horrible couldn’t understand the menu and what they offered. Cocktails were not good either. Tried a couple different ones but all were a fail. And lastly, we went to the restaurant for my mom’s bday they charged me to cut a small birthday cake we brought to the restaurant. $70 which was more than the cost of the cake. NEVER again !!! Gonna write Ayesha Curry too

Food was okay, my husband had the ribs and they were really tough. The whole roasted cauliflower and the tuna bombs were the best thing we tried. Service was slow and food was very expensive. Probably won’t be back.

The food: phenomenal. The service: phenomenal. The ambiance: phenomenal. Me and my girls went here to celebrate my bachelorette weekend and loved every bit of it. The server made great menu suggestions and we all left licking the plate. We will for sure return in the future and visit other restaurants across the states.

The appetizers were pretty good, however the rest was average or below.
The skirt steaks arrived cold and lacked flavor. The corn bread (an appetizer) arrived after the entrees and was extremely dry, the sides were nothing to remember.
The banana dessert was also good.
In summary, nice looking place with average food that ends up being too expensive for the quality/taste of what you get

My husband and I had an amazing time. Our servers Michelle and Max provided exceptional service and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our first time experience.

The overall ambiance and food was amazing. We went on a Saturday night and we were seated right away and the food came out quick. I was celebrating my birthday and the server was nice enough to give us a complimentary appetizer courtesy of the chef. The prices are reasonable and the ribs and Mac and cheese were to die for!! We will definitely be going back.

The food is good. I was not too pleased with my server Jaqueline. She was not attentive, barely spoke to me, and took a long time to come to my table in between orders. I’ve been here before and my server was great, so I was thrown off at Jaqueline and her lack of hospitality. I ordered the American ribs, cornbread, and the Mac and cheese. Ribs were flavorful and tender, the Mac and cheese was good also but if it did not have rib tips on it - it would taste very underwhelming. Overall, I probably wouldn’t return. Nothing special about the restaurant.

The food was superb. The service excellent. The only negative was that, even though we had a reservation, we were seated at the very back of the restaurant right by the kitchen. Even though the restaurant seemed to have plenty of empty tables all throughout our meal, I had to enjoy my wonderful meal staring at the kitchen door open and close.

Would recommend to avoid the ribs at all cost. Too much sauce, didnt let the taste of the meat or smoke come out. Steak was amazing though.

Drinks and apetizers were amazing! However we were super disapointed with the ribs!!! Ribs are meant to be juicy and saucy!!! Our were super dry, overly cooked. The mexican style ribs tasted horrible!!!! They had walnuts on them which was very odd...the after taste was not good. Didn’t taste like bbq ribs. Had to go home and put some good amount of sauce and seasoning and back in the oven to absorb everything.
Otherwise cornbread was delicious and the coconut thai soup were my favs. Definitely will go back but NOT for the ribs!!!

If you want to try something different from a grill, don't hesitate to come here.
We started off with the Jerk Chicken appetizer, along with the mushroom. Both very nicely done and flavorful.
The fall off the bone ribs are the Stars of the menu. I got the Korean Style. Unless you have a very healthy appetite, the fill rak is shareable. I recommend getting a half rak, and get some appetizers to get a taste of what this place has to offer. Their Branzino and Chicken were also good if you're not into ribs.
We were superbly attended by Max and his wife (at the bar) and I also recommend that you ask for them as well if possible.
As a side, go for the Mac&rib as well as the brussel sprouts. Great side dishes to go along with the main course.
Overall, we had a good time. Everyone there was friendly and welcoming.

Honestly all the food was pretty bad. I ordered 2 half racks of ribs different sauce for each both tasted like pure smoke. I felt like I was eating charcoal almost. Ordered the rib tip mac n cheese and it’s was OK at best, the rib meat topping was cold and the mac n cheese was pretty bland. Ordered the Brussel sprouts, they were ok nothing to rave about, Would be better if they were crispy. Ordered the chicken and waffles (at first I was brought Jerk chicken only, when I mentioned I had ordered chicken and waffles the server brought me the right item but billed me for both!!) the jerk chicken and chicken were good (arguably the best thing we had from our entire order) taste and portion was good. All in all I wouldn’t go back, nothing was really worth the driver or expensive price.
