We went to celebrate Mother's Day. We felt totally save (Covid related). The food was very yummy. We got the Buffalo Chicken Tenders and Sheet Pan Nachos to share. Both were very good and filling so we all only ate half of our entrees and was too stuffed for dessert. Can't wait to go back and try the Peanut Butter Thing.

We were here for Mother’s Day. All was well until the food came out. One order was completely wrong and the pizza was undercooked and soggy. By the tome the problem was fixed it had been an additional 20 minutes. By that time we were ready to go as the rest of the table had been waiting on refills and another round of drinks.

Our whole experience was good except for the service. Our server took forever to take our order and we would always have to look up before reordering. Thanks to the bartender who was paying close attention we didn’t have to wait too long coz she would fill our server’s spot when she was not around.

Another great experience. Sirloin tips were underwhelming, but dealt with swiftly. Highlight to eat there is John, the server, he is a top guy.

Our waiter, John, was fantastic!!

The only problem was that a group of 6-7 women were seated very close to us and were a little loud.

Dined on Saturday, 4/10 outside. Nice patio covered with a white tent. Being able to make a reservation for outside is a plus too. Service was excellent from the hostess and waiter. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre. We used to love their jambalaya and pork chop. Neither item is on the menu anymore.

As always, the food was excellent. It wasn’t super crowded, but they must have been short staffed bc our waiter disappeared after our food came. We waited a long time for the check, then had to ask someone else to take our CC. Other than that, we were very pleased.

I have been to this restaurant before, but the service and food withdrawal quality have diminished significantly. Service was gruff and mostly unhelpful. I won't be going back.

The bread and cheese dip is delicious although it would be even better if the bread was hot when it was brought to the table.

Tray our server was great. This was my first time here and he made good recommendations. Food was very good. Only thing I would recommend is for the restaurant to post larger signs stating they are a cash free establishment. It was posted on the front door but the sign was very small and one would just walk right in not really paying attention. Maybe also have it on the tables.
