First time here. Sat at the bar for dinner. Bartender was great! Drinks were great! Steak and mashed potatoes were great! Oysters were just ok. Gumbo was good but not very flavorful. We would go back.

We came for lunch, The was one larger table but very few other small tables seated. First, the place was full of smoke from the kitchen , we left smelling like we had been cooking over a grill. The service was extremely slow especially for lunch. I ordered the burrata so it was just the cheese and some tomatoes. It was good but very salty. They said the large table was keeping the kitchen held up, well then don’t take other reservations during that time! Would not visit there again.

Service was friendly... appetizer was great... all the entrees and sides were overcooked and dry. First experience may be misleading, but even if the food were great, there are already multiple solid options in the area at the same our lower prices.

The drinks, the ambiance, and the service are impeccable! The food is good, but not amazing. We had artichoke dip, a pretty dry salad, and crab cakes - good, but again, pretty dry. I would definitely go again though. Really great atmosphere and service.

This may have been the best burger ever! Juicy, with amazing bacon and a great roll. We loved the brussel sprouts. Came in late in the evening, but were made to feel welcome without any rush.

This is the second late dinner we have enjoyed there. Despite the hour, the servers were cordial and efficient and our dinners prepared fresh and delicious. Highly recommend the wedge salad, tasty, perfectly cooked filets and delicious mashed potatoes. Wine was spot on and again, our server, Chandler, did an excellent job. We will be back.

We had the scallops, ribeye steak and a lobster roll - everything was amazing! My husband thought it was the best steak he’d had in a restaurant in a long time and my scallops were seasoned just right and cut with my fork! My son said his lobster roll reminded him of Boston - but it was gone before anyone else got a taste!

The noise level was loud but we could still talk - which is unusual these days. We sat at a four top table close to the door with lots of traffic - if it was a special occasion I would ask for a different location.

We will go again!

Pleasantly surprised to find this gem! Service was excellent - and sincere. Food exceeded expectations - the trout, salmon and Brussels sprouts are all amazing. The only average item was the creme brûlée - probably could've skipped dessert. We will be back!

We went for a pre Father’s Day dinner. The food was good , but over priced for what what it was . The waiter was too attentive and interrupted our conversation all evening. The decor was fine, but the food was 5 star pricing at 3 star quality.

Very busy, our waitress seemed to be in a hurry.
We ordered cocktails to enjoy before dinner but didn’t get them until our dinner was served.
Ordered appetizers which were followed immediately with our dinners.
My husbands salmon was over cooked and my catfish meal was not at all as described on the menu.
Our waitress never really checked back with us while we were eating.
I use open table all the time and this was my first disappointing experience.
Won’t be going back anytime soon.

Really solid. This is a nice addition to the Brentwood restaurant scene, which is slowly inching along. The flavors and food are too heavy-handed, like most Nashville restaurants, but it’s a solid stop for good, ole’ American cuisine.

Believe they have addressed previous concerns of slow service as the food came out real fast, really too fast as we were still working on appetizers when main courses arrived. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Place was really dark and has lighting issue in main area where you can't read menu with mobile phone light. Separate dining rooms and bar look ok. Food was good, craft beer selection was sparse. Drink selection was good.

Normally closed on Sunday, they were open for Mother's Day with a set menu with the last seating at 2:00 PM. Excellent wine; and both scallops and salmon were very, very good. The restaurant was full and bustling, but very comfortable and family friendly. An excellent Gulf Coast restaurant, now in Brentwood. And did I mention friendly, very knowledgeable servers (thank you Laura!).

We went for Mothers Day brunch and were able to make a reservation fairly last minute. The food was fair however very overpriced for both portion size and quality. They have a great happy hour but we would likely not go back for brunch.
