We were sat Outside, where a plant hangs from the canopy, and clearly interferes with a location to sit at. Aweful design. Manager should move the planter. Soil can fall onto the table, not to mention no one can sit on that side of the table.

We also had extememly slow service. Ticket time was over 40min. We had to have another meal made and that ticket time was over 20min. All guests were done with their meals, before the correction was brought back out. No manager came to the table. The restaurant seemed over whelemed.

This is a better place for after work than for a business lunch. I picked it based on food reviews, but should have made sure when people are here (time of day). Worked out okay with my contact and friendly service. Looks like it would be hoping on a Thursday or Friday night.

The drinks were delicious. The food was mediocre. The sausage gravy had no sausage in it. The waffle came out cold. The eggs taste like they came from a carton instead of fresh cracked eggs. The waiter was nice but I went three glassses down before getting a refill of water because I took the others water after drinking my own. Manager did compensate the food which was great but would have preferred just a great brunch with delicious food!!!!

The food good and the service was great. However, it felt cramped and the noise level was borderline obnoxious. Also, there were flies everywhere. We almost gave up trying to eat because we were too busy swatting flies from our food. Not sure if we'll be back, at least not for brunch.

Too noisy, wanted to sit outside and they took us to an inside table. Food was too basic and boring. Thought there was an endless mimosa price but it was just for one mimosa. Could not see the name of the restaurant from the street so drove around a while trying to figure out what garage to park in.

It was rather disappointing to arrive 10 minutes early for a reservation, to an almost empty restaurant and then be blatantly ignored for 30 minutes without even being offered a glass of water. No one ever spoke or told us they would be with us in a moment. We left, unnoticed, from our 11:30 reservation at about 12:05 without ever being greeted.

We decided to go to Sunday Brunch before a show. Two big pluses for us when we decided on State & Allen, parking and reservations. Then the hard part, deciding what to eat, because the menu had a good selection. Wait staff was friendly and fast, and the portions were hearty. I didn't get much help when I asked for suggestions on their popular items. My original choice of Chicken and Waffles changed at the last minute to the French Toast, and I believe I should have stuck with the chicken. The meal was good, but the chicken looked better. The drinks were great during brunch. Instead of Mimosas, I chose to go with the Bloody Mary's, and their standard one was really good; however, you can opt to go to the Bloody Mary Bar and make your own, for a very inexpensive price. That said, the place serves good food, at good prices 10-20.00, the Brunch drink specials are good, staff was friendly, parking was awesome, and we are definitely going back, because I need to try the chicken and waffles.

Overall, our party enjoyed our experience. Great brunch cocktails! However, wait staff could use a little cheering up! Not many smiles on their part. I had to ask about their brunch cocktail specials. Also, their website states that if you bring your own coffee cup for Sunday brunch, you receive free coffee since the restaurant is going green. I thought that was a wonderful idea! When I mentioned this to our waiter, he said he had not heard about this. I showed him the website and he said he'd take care of it. The bill reflected only one free coffee though all our party had their own cups. Would I go back in spite of this? Yes, but I definitely wouldn't lug around cups in my purse for free coffee!
