This was probably our 7th visit here and it’s been a year since we’ve been in but it seems to have gone a bit down hill. They got rid of my favorite plate on the menu so I was bummed by that . So I ordered the French toast sandwich which I found to be nothing special and the egg was way over cooked on it. We got 2 sides of bacon which came burnt and dry . My friend said her chili was bland, And our waitress was grumpy and seemed to not want to be there . So over all not a great experience this time .

Overall a fun place to go for brunch. Our food was just okay. The service was great however and I enjoyed the atmosphere. I just really wish they could improve on the food. Really nice menu, but items were not hot and could’ve used more TLC in the kitchen

Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The biscuits and gravy was the best I’ve ever eaten. Bloody Mary was perfect. We will definitely be back.

Love Lindsley as our server. We've followed her from when she left Shannon's other ristro. And of course, anything from Shannon Wynne's operation is always a great atmosphere, interesting people, and super helpful staff.

The Thai Mussels was devoured by my wife. We shared the blue Cheese chips and I had the steak on a stick. We really enjoyed the food and the ambiance. We will definitely return.

Food was over the top fabulous. Hostess apparently gave us the wrong beer menu so we choose our beer flight based on the wrong menu. That really should have been remedied in some way as the flights were $20 each.

Really interesting place with glass murals on the wall. Food was a bit all over the place and mostly heavy dishes. Probably not my kind of spot which is fine but I was expecting more modern day gastro pub cuisine, good fries, burgers, good cocktails. This didn’t quite meet expectations.

Service was terrible. No one even came by to greet us as we are clearly sitting there with nothing on the table for at least ten minutes. I don’t get how servers just walk right by. Finally stopped someone and he took care of us...kind of. Food was ok. I ordered a burger it was well done which I asked for medium-medium well, super dry no flavor. Server took forever to cash us out had to ask another server to help.

It was good- New Years Day brunch. I eat out a lot in nice locally owned restaurants - all over-NYC, Atlanta, Chicago, SAnta Fe, Dallas. I pay lots of money for fine food & service but I was surprised by the coffee charges. No refills very mediocre coffee and I could have purchased a carafe of mimosas almost for what coffee for 2 people cost. I’ve had the finders coffee in Hawaii and Africa & they didn’t do that. The food was good- not piping hot- & corn pudding was really a not good corn bread- gummy and hard and put next to my greens so it was soggy too. Greens should have been in a bowl or cornbread on other side. The place is charming and cute but nothing outstanding. Biscuits & gravy should be piping hot- almost sent back.

Waiter was totally in a rush. We actually had to move out of his way because he walked between us and the hostess stand when we arrived. Did not ask me if I wanted another beer when mine was empty. I had to give my bride my water because he never asked or came back to see if we needed anything else until we were done. Had a similar experience with him the last time we were there. Thought he was just having a bad night, we know now that’s just the way he is. He name is Blake

The moth doesn’t seem to be what it used to be. The food was good but not great. Great service and atmosphere as always. Beer list was IPA heavy so that’s good if you like that type of beer. Honestly expected the food to be better like it was in past visits.
