Food was excellent. Had the avocado toast. The outside seating was pleasant and perfect for this time of pandemic. Waitress Jasmine was friendly and helpful.

My Fish and Chips were good. My wife's BLT and Cucumber salad was not very good. Our server was great.

Service was really good, but the food left much to be desired. $5 burger Monday is not worth it - you can tell it’s a from a frozen patty, the bun was stale, and the potato salad is definitely not homemade (maybe from a supermarket like Costco?). Go somewhere else if you want decent food.

It took over 45 minutes for the bartender to take our order, and she didn't ask how I wanted my burger cooked so it came out well done

Very well organized. We were there for brunch and it was busy but we were seated right away. Server was on top of everything. Food was great, came out in a timely manner. The prices are reasonable and we will most likely return.

The food wasn't what I expected. Their idea of pasta salad is shell noodles with mayo. Asked for mayo on my sandwich instead of chipotle ranch. When the sandwich came it had no dressing on it. It took 10 minutes to get the waitresses attention. Their ice tea was terrible. Tasted like some cheap tea you get in a gallon plastic jug. My friends burger was terrible she couldn't eat it
Will never go there again.

It was ok, their service was incredibly slow, our appetizers came out kinda cold, and we waited 40 minutes to get our dinner order in... which was fine, we were there with friends so we all just talked, but 40 minutes seems a little excessive. Anyway, food was really good and we had a great time. Just be prepared to wait a bit.

Thank you so much for the feedback and your patience. We sincerely appreciate it. We are working hard to get staffed back up from the COVID shut down, and hope to have the crew back up to speed very soon. We apologize for the speed of service, and we really hope you guys had a nice time and good meal despite the wait!

The food was great and I’d love to go back but we literally had the worst service I have probably ever had going out. It was awful which makes me never want to go back again. Our server had no other tables, was talking to his friends, would just completely ignore us. I have served and bartender and been in the restaurant industry a long time. No excuse! Horrible.

The reviews made it seem better than it actually is. The food is synthetic. I ordered the Avocado Breakfast sandwich and the avocado spread was from pre-packaged (not fresh), the eggs were not fresh. The restaurant is dingy and smelled of old dirty re-used cleaning supplies.

Excellent breakfast menu, several unique items. Great value and large portion sizes. Garlic cheesy grits were my favorite. Apparently breakfast is served all day.

No butter in the restaurant to put on waffles or biscuits. Just assume that I would still want it. Charge $3.00 for gravy that had no sausage.
I asked for a manager. She came to the table took the food away and didn’t charge for it. But, she had a major attitude and I would not go back.

Food was good. Long wait to get the food. Service was slow - for our table anyway. This restaurant is not on my side of town and I don't see us going out of our way to eat there. I would go there again if I was in the neighborhood.

Delicious food. Excellent service. This visit was for my birthday, but I've taken my mother there for Mother's Day, brunch with friends, etc. It's a favorite. Have the Denver Omelette and a Bloody Mary!

Food was good. We went for the monday night burger night. My husband wanted a plain burger, none of the additional condiments/extras for the special burgers offered. He was told that was not an option, he would have to order from the regular menu, meaning pay $12 for a plain burger, rather than $5 for burger night. I understand no substitutions, extras, etc, but he was asking for things not on it. Server said it wasn't an option, didn't seem to ask anyone, even though the chef and owner were walking around talking to people (never came to our table)

Came on a Monday and was pleased to discover $5 burger night. Ordered a beverage from the bar and a side with my burger. All tasted good, and was happy to see safety measures in place across the restaurant.
