    This was my first time at this restaurant. Ambience was great. Waitresswas phenomenal. The food suggestions fish and chips, and the shrimp and grits, delicious. The steak and cheese egg rolls great. Brussels sprouts a no. The front door hostess Ms Walker is a gem. We had a party of 7 and service was quick. Prices are reasonable even with the 20% gratuity. Check it out! It is our new found go to place.

    Extremely disappointed with the food. Steak and Cheese roll was overcooked and served with sauce for an egg roll. For some reason, it took three tries to get a soft drink that did not taste like seltzer water. We were served can Sprite which was flat and I'm sure was expired. The bread was pieces of toast and one slice looked liked someone took a bite out of it. It was served with some honey butter that tasted like the cook simply mixed up some concoction of ingredients to make it sound appealing. We ordered Carolina Pan Trout which was not fresh. The broccolini was doused with lemon juice and the mash potatoes was stringy. I wanted to express my displeasure but my sister expressed that it was spending time together that mattered. That was until she saw the bill. There was a 20% service charge and a note at the bottom of the receipt recommending tips. We were served by three people! My experience would have been a great episode to Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell and Back! Never Again.

    I went there on Mothers Day which is a big deal. I would like to first start off that the staff was great!! They were very respectful and courteous. The problem that I had with the event was the cost didn’t equal the variety of food. The food was mediocre at best and charging people an excessive amount of money for basic food was ridiculous. I don’t recommend nor will I be attending another event. The guy that collected the money at the end had no personality didn’t see him the entire event but I guess he was the owner/manager. I wasn’t impressed!

    Horrid Mother's Day Brunch. It felt like a repaste. No decor, no ambiance, they put us in a big conference ballroom, sad violinist, cold average food. Brunch buffet with no bread. The food was not good at all. I cannot believe they charged $55 for this experience. I had to ask for my coffee 4 times and received it 45 mins into the brunch. This was a very sad experience. Never again. Do not go here if you like good food. My first and last time here.

    Made reservations for a late brunch here before a Saturday night show at MGM. This restaurant is on the lobby level of a hotel and very accessible from the main entrance. The hostess seemed a little frazzled but finally got us seated with water, menus and flatware. Our server arrived promptly and took our beverage order. When those were brought, we were ready to order our meals. We had the roasted corn and crab bisque, the chicken & waffles, and the shrimp & grits. The bisque was loaded with lump crab and so very good! The chicken and waffles were tasty and a huge portion. Shrimp and grits was amazing but way too much to finish!! Our server Alfonzo was gracious and perfect on his timing during our meal. Tips: try to get a table in the second section away from the door as the entrance of the restaurant is wide open to the front door and the lobby of the hotel. Also, the two seat tables are a bit small once you get drinks, plates and bowls, so ask for a four seat table if possible. We felt a little cramped at the smaller table

    Great food options on the brunch menu. I chose the Portum Omelet with lump crabmeat. It was tasty & very filling. The only downside was the mimosa pitcher, it's overpriced to receive mostly juice. I would just order by the glass. Otherwise, a nice brunch experiment overall.
