    Went there for a Sunday brunch because they can accommodate larger groups. The food was fine but nothing the group ordered was great. Looks like they have a great bourbon selection so need to go back and check it out.

    We came in with a group of 8 and were seated up in the loft area. The music was pretty loud up there and kind of wished we got seated on the main level so we could enjoy the ambiance. However, the food was great - especially the breakfast potstickers! The breakfast cocktails were very unique and everyone enjoyed their food, ranging from breakfast burritos, chiliquies tacos, biscuits & gravy and the avocado bowl. Would definitely go back again!

    We tried Merriment two weeks ago and came back to have the brussels sprouts appetizer and french dip sandwich last night. Both are amazing! We also love the environment. It's open, airy and fun. Staff is great as well. Highly recommend!

    We met friends for Sunday brunch. The environment was lively, the Bloody's were tasty and our meal was great. We all ordered the scrambled egg burritos and ate it all. Clean plate club for this group.

    It is worth a try. The drinks were excellent. The food was well prepared, however, it lacked seasoning for my our personal taste and experience Wasn't disappointed, just doesn't warrant a second visit.

    French dip was over-charred. Burger was oozy and tasty. Addictive french fries. We like Tupelo Honey's Bee's Knees more than the Honeypot here.

    They had no beer. Said their tap system was down. Cool video be good service. Food a bit ambitious and all over the place with wide variety of flavors and styles, generally good some hits some misses. Wouldn’t go out of my way to go back but wouldn’t avoid it

    We went here for an early Father’s Day dinner as a family. We really enjoyed the fun cocktail options and the open airy setting. The garage doors were up so it almost has an outdoor vibe which we loved. The Brussel sprouts are a family favorite.

    The food was extremely over price for what you received. If we’re good food it would’ve been fine but honestly I’ve had better burgers from Burger King & McDonald’s. Burger was $20 bucks and didn’t come with chips or fries. Just a school lunch burger on a metal tray. There was more bun than burger. Fries were and extra $6 bucks and they were anything special.
