Our service was exceptional.They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our selections and had everything we could want. The pecan pancakes and strawberry pie were especially delicious.

No savory items that didn't have peppers in them. Only sweet items for those of us with nightshade problems.
I really wish restaurants would figure out that you can always add peppers, but you can't take 'em out :(

We came here for an anniversary and we were given a complimentary dessert. I 100% recommend the strawberry cake! Impeccable service, will be back for another visit!

We came here for my 30th birthday expecting something a bit more upscale. Felt a bit over dressed but we were basing our assumptions off the website. No one was impressed with the food. My steak and carrots were both undercooked and the mac and cheese was dry. Lack of flavor.

After all was said and done we spent $350 on our tap and felt disappointed. Won't recommend or come back.

It was exceptional! Miles, our server, was excellent. We had deviled eggs, BBQ yeast rolls, pimento cheese, BBQ meatloaf, glazed pork tenderloin, chicken fried steak, pecan pie and the best strawberry cake EVER! Adam and Kris have done a superb job in building a great business with great staff. We will
definitely be back!

Service was excellent, the food was good, but pricey and the atmosphere was awesome. I would recommend valet parking, it’s free just leave a tip, I saw a lot of reviews on Yelp of people having their cars towed.

They made my fiancee's birthday dinner perfect! They even congratulated us on our engagement! Great service!
I cook for a living and was truly inspired by their farm to table style and was even more impressed with the taste! We will be back 😁

It’s just good ol fashion southern comfort food. It’s nothing all that creative, I really don’t think a $25 meatloaf is cool. Even if they are playing Waylon Jennings on repeat.

Every piece of our meal was poorly executed - dreamy Mac and cheese, tiny portion of fish, mediocre burger - for the price we expected better.

Nice outdoor area. We we there for my daughter’s 20th birthday. I stated this in writing when i booked the reservation. I stated verbally twice to the waitress while we were seated. Yet she couldn’t be bothered to bring my daughter a piece of cake? Disappointing.

Great atmosphere, and amazing food. The self care drink is delicious, the yeast rolls are a must have, and the steak frites were some of the best we have had!

Our server was 5 star and made the experience wonderful!

Food was significantly delayed by a private party but wait staff and manager could give lessons on proper customer recovery. Turned a possible uncomfortable situation into a pleasant experience. Highest compliments for service and the food was phenomenal

Food took FOREVER to arrive, and when it did it was lukewarm. Had about a 45 min wait from when we ordered until it was placed on our table. Ambiance and service were fine but the ticket time put a huge damper on the overall experience.

We were rushed to finish from the moment we sat down…I don’t understand why they offer 1:30pm brunch reservations if they’re not going to allow you to enjoy your meal at a regular pace when they want you out the door by 2:30 (didn’t even know when making resy)

Another restaurant that doesn’t understand service

Exceptional service, delicious food and drinks, beautiful view outside of the Colorado River. The salad was a great value. The chicken entree was a disappointing size compared to everything else but we had an amazing experience and can't wait to return.

My only complaint is the parking situation. Valet was full because of an event outside. But I know that’s no ones fault. Just a caution that parking can be a little tricky b/c the place is so popular.

The deviled eggs are yummy! The frose and mimosas were tasty, too. On the table, we had the cheeseburger, pimento grilled cheese, hash, winter salad, sausage, and pimento grits. All plates were cleaned. Our server, Hannah, did a wonderful job!

Our service could have been better, waitress forgot to bring sides for my order and bus boy poured water in my sparkling water glass even after I asked him not to. Probably just didn't understand me. Food was excellent and my husbands steak was cooked perfectly.
