I had 16.99 shrimp and grits at Emerils in LO airport gate that blew this away. No ham. No bacon as told. . 4 medium shrimp served in red sauce over grits. 24.00? No thanks.
You can do better.

The food was overpriced for the quality. Everything was bland, it lacked substance.

First time there and we were thrilled with the entres the 4 of us ordered. Relaxed atmosphere even with the cloth napkins and glassware at each place setting. The food is exceptional. Probably should make reservations, Chef Beckett does it right.

Chef Heather and Chef Chris have always created inventive dishes that represent the vision of this place. The service has always been good but not obtrusive. This is a great restaurant for the holidays as it can host private parties and accommodate requests. This has been one of our favorites since it opened! Dr. B

This restaurant is fantastic. We started with the green tomatoes and they were fantastic. The pimento cheese is unbelievable. We then progressed to the fried chicken. Collar greens to die for. Classic French preparation of potatoes. Chicken is so moist and delectable. So buttery, so creamy, so velvety. You and everyone in your family need to go here. Happy holidays!

Our party had the fried chicken, meatloaf, and shrimp and grits. All were delicious. For appetizers we had deviled eggs and fried okra. Deviled eggs were excellent. Fried okra was okay, a bit seedy for what I'm used to. Ambiance was good, service good. Hard to tell on noise level because on day and time we went the restaurant wasn't crowded, but noise level was low.

We will go there again, alot of menu items look good that we want to try.

I came here for a brunch anniversary and was very pleased with the whole experience. The food was amazing such a great brunch menu, the outside patio was a great space to enjoy this Arizona fall weather. They even set out a happy anniversary card on our table which was such a cute touch. We will definitely be coming back and sharing this experience with friends!

Birthday celebration for sister. Asked to have champagne on ice ready for arrival several hours in advance but no one contacted me to confirm product so it wasn’t ready when she arrived. Certainly didn’t provide the experience I was hoping for. Service was slow and overall I would have expected more for the price point. The birthday note on the table was a nice touch though.

We are so sorry to hear about the missed detail for your birthday celebration. Opportunities like this we take to heart to make an experience special. It disappoints us that we failed you, and gave service that is not our standard. We hope that you return and let us know about a return visit either through reservation or calling us, so we can show you the type of service and hospitality we pride ourselves in. Best, Casey FOH Manager

The service was great, they surprised us by having a birthday sign at the table for our celebration and also gave us the dessert for free. Food was great, fried chicken and Mac an cheese and meatloaf and poboy sandwich were all great. Recommend getting a speciality drink.

Server took a while to take our order. They didn’t have two dishes on their menu (for a Friday night). Server visited our table infrequently and no one asked if our food was ok, where my daughter had an issue with her dish. Good food but not worth poor service and high prices.

I selected this restaurant because it was close to the university. I was celebrating my doctorate degree and had a few family and friends join me. It was great service and a beautiful restaurant. The food was ok. Very different southern food. The fried green tomatoes and okra were delicious. The chicken and dumplings were basically chicken and a biscuit crumbled with gravy. Everyone enjoyed their food though. Dessert was great!
