Stood awkwardly in the vestibule at the host stand with no host. Waited for over 5 minutes with other employees passing by and no one greeting us. Finally was sat at a table only to wait another 10 minutes before a server came over to us. The tables have definitely seen better days and need to be reupholstered. Our reservation was at 7:30. We arrived at 7:27 and by the time we were sat and greeted by a server it was 7:53. Honestly we probably should have just gotten up and left, but surprisingly our food was delicious. A bummer because as we both agreed we wnjoyed our meal and would like to try other items we would not risk going back due to poor service.

Love everything about this place, but the noise level which was extremely loud until 8/8:30 when some tables cleared out. The bar area was significantly quieter so I’ll ask to sit there next time.

The food is delicious, presentation of the meals are beautiful, and the service is superb. However, there is no elevator, and the restaurant is located on the second floor. This limits the kinds of people who can enjoy the experience and food at this wonderful restaurant.

We arrived just after 4 pm. The restaurant was not crowded. There was red lipstick on my glass. Someone from my table had to go get the waiter to tell him we were ready to order. He said he would bring out corn bread after we ordered, but we had to ask for it-after our food arrived. Collards had too much vinegar and black eye peas were not cooked long enough.

I made a reservation for a group of 4 for Sunday evening for my birthday. The service getting drinks was a little slow at first but improved as the night went on. Everyone in our group loved their food and drinks and the sever we had was very nice and personable. My sister and I definitely would recommend the fried chicken. The side dishes were amazing. We will definitely be back.

For a Saturday night, the establishment was not busy, which was a relieve even though my family and I had reservations. We were seated immediately and the staff was very accommodating to my mother-in-law's walker when it came to seating and space. The wait staff, Mike specifically, was very friendly and engaged in conversation and was not just there to take our order. This was a very nice experience for our first time.

Food was tremendous. Service was high quality and friendly. Ambiance was nice. Quiet, as it was a Monday night. Cornbread arrived at our table with menus. Oxtail was amazing. Fried chicken and sides (collards, yams) were amazing. Texted friends while we were there to set up a future visit.

Unfortunately they were closed and nobody told us. We showed up on time for our reservation and nobody was there. Restaurant was completely closed. I reached out to the restaurant via FB message and I didn’t even receive a response even though they read my message. Quite disappointing

Fun place to go. Shrimp and grits was amazing. Fried chicken was too salty. Corn was too salty also. Chopped Kale salad was excellent. Sweet potato bread pudding was excellent.

This was a dinner for my 11 year wedding anniversary. My wife and I were congratulated on our anniversary right from the very start. The waitress was very cordial and attentive, while at the same time not being to pushy. The food was superb. I had the oxtails with greens and my wife had the catfish. Overall a wonderful experience. It would even be a nice spot to drop in for drinks. Great ambiance.

The food was excellent. My server was excellent also, service was well paced and even the young man who was filling my water and clearing plates was friendly and eager. My son had the oxtail and I had the chicken, black eyed pea hummus for appetizer, and of course, BOTH desserts. Some of the best bread pudding I’ve ever had. No, it was the best....must’ve been the sweet potato in it! I will definitely be back and have already spread the good word. Applause for you!

The restaurant was great, the food was awesome, and the staff was great. The only issue (which is a major issue) they're charging customers a $1.50 for Rocks/Ice. When I ask why was I being charged for Ice and I wanted to see a manager my waiter immediately said: "no I can take it off". Just imagine if they do this all day to customers how much money are they stealing. WATCH YOUR BILL

The food was excellent and the service was even better. We had a play to get to and only asked our waitress if we could get our bill when our food came out. She did something even better and got our entire order out in 10 minutes and our bill came shortly after. Fastest service ever.
