We shared plates. Shrimp and grits were the highlight. Did not like Brussels sprouts or pork belly or blue cheese chips. Dessert was a 10 out of 10. Brunch was so good - expected more from dinner.

Waiter was nice.

Saturday brunch was good, the service could have been better. A waitress was a little slow getting to our table and seemed to be new based on her interaction with us when ordering our food. She wasn't familiar with the menu, we had to show her what we were ordering from the menu in order for her to write it down. The food was timely and good. We had the deviled eggs and sticky bun, our entree was their two hens dish with side order of black pepper bacon and the 2nd entree was their French toast with side order of home potatoes and black pepper bacon.

A very fun and different date night experience. We enjoyed our food and the staff was very friendly. The food is expensive but reasonable for the excellent quality. A worthy splurge for a nice date! We will come again :)

Jaime and the support staff was very attentive throughout our brunch. The food was delicious. The deviled eggs were rich and creamy, the biscuit, sausage, and gravy were savory, and the waffles had the perfect crispy buttery deliciousness to them.

The service was amazing. I should have gotten the servers name but she handled the entire restaurant and did a fabulous job! The food is great its just a very different menu for me personally. I always enjoy going there but always have a hard time figuring out wht to order

We sat in a booth, at the back of the restaurant, at the base of the slanted wall. Just as we have heard from many others, the noise level is absolutely unbearable. There was a large part of 25 or so at an extended table close to our booth, and we could not hear ourselves THINK, much less carry on a conversation. Food and service were fine. Dining experience was ruined.

It was nice! The food was good. Avocado shareable was excellent. We went early (around 5pm) and we’re one of the only tables in the restaurant. The food came out quickly but the service was generally pretty inattentive - especially for the price and lack of other patrons in the restaurant.

I’d skip for a special occasion (which we noted on our reservation) and go back with a group for a very casual dining experience…knowing that it will be fairly expensive.

Also-while the wine list is short, they have a good selection that is reasonably priced (i.e. nice bottles but not crazy marked up from retail in store)

Our favorite thing to do at MM is to let our waiter/waitress order for us 100%. We tell them our restrictions (we have none!) and then let them bring us 3-4 shareables. This time, we tried the bone marrow, cioppino, bbq ribs, and cheesy potatoes (I forget what they were really called). Everything was delicious and we left very satisfied!

Food and service were good. The beer list is top notch. Overall the atmosphere seems a little confusing. It’s like banquet hall meets stained glass cathedral meets leather shop.

Although our last visit was pre covid, we were happy to arrange a reservation and were seated immediately. The drinks, food and service were exactly as we remembered. Solid selections quickly prepared and served. I cannot wait to return to sample a few more of the craft beers.

Came for lunch to celebrate sister-in-law’s birthday. We came with our spouses. The guys made a selection from the voluminous beer list and loved it. We each ate the lunch special—stuffed baked potato soup and pimento cheese burgers. OMG delicious. Took half of it home. Good wait staff, attentive but not hovering. We stayed two hours. Great friends, great food, great celebration!!

This place has really gone downhill. Food was terrible and unimpressive. Beer was nothing I couldn't get elsewhere and perhaps wouldn't have been dripping water as every glass, spoon, plate still had water on it from the dishwasher. The hamburger used to be top notch and it was terrible. The fries even worse. Worst part was the constant yelling and loud conversations of people around us. It was not lively, just annoying. don't need to hear how many men they have slept with or who they are hooking up with. Over all, stay away - unless they get new management and make a real change, this place is only cool because of the location - do not expect anything extraordinary and the beer - well, there are so many better places to go. This place sucks!

Started off as a great evening with well crafted menu, great ambience, excellent starters until we got to the main course, we had ordered a burger, rack of lamb, Chicken Marsala and the Paella, I would rate 3 out of the 4 dishes as low, no flavor, overcooked Bacon in the burger, no seasoning in the Marsala sauce and the lamb was requested medium well-done and served medium, definitely recommend for drinks and appetizers, a big NO for mains

We went for brunch and everything was very good. Bloody Mary is delicious. We had the French toast sandwich with duroc ham, egg and cheese and a peach waffle with bourbon syrup. We enjoyed all of it and will return.

Food was very good and so was the service. We thought the noise level in the restaurant was too loud. We were at a corner booth and you could barely hear the people talk across the table from you. Probably will not go back.

As always, the food was great, the service very good - and I really like the feel of the restaurant. We’ve been many times, typically weekend lunch. My only note would be the brunch menu is a bit limited, but the only thing I order is the chicken salad sandwich (excellent) so I guess if that was the only thing on the menu I’d be okay. Great place.
