The brunch on Mother's Day was delicious- all 7 in our party finished every bite. The outdoor seating was covered. The tables are all high top and the general atmosphere is more of a bar. I would probably return for happy hour or a casual dinner with friends. Service was slow and not attentive

Go, go, go, go! You won’t be disappointed. We were there to celebrate Mother’s Day. There were 12 of us and the food and service were both exceptional. Ages from 1 week to 85 years old and it was amazing. Every request was met with a smile and immediate action. The banana bread pudding French toast was beyond delicious. I was afraid my father was going to lick the plate! Chicken and waffles was very good. Their take on eggs Benedict was interesting, ‘prosciutto and poached’. Great hollandaise. We will definitely be going back. They also own the Nodding Donkey. We are going to try there too.

Not busy at all and the worst service I’ve had in years. No acknowledgement for at least 10 minutes after being seated. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time. After 20 minutes of waiting for the check, we finally had to get up and find the waitress to pay and leave. The entire waitstaff was walking around completely bored and uninterested.

We've been many times for brunch. Great value, and great Bloody Mary and Mimosa bars! This time, however, the hostess at the door failed to record our arrival, so we got a "friendly" reminder from the folks here at OpenTable about keeping reservations or canceling. I responded quickly that we had most certainly kept the reservation, requesting that OpenTable have State and Allen correct their records. To their credit, I heard back from OpenTable within 24 hours with an apology and notice that they would have State and Allen do so. So, good food, great drinks....but make sure they actually mark you down as having arrived.........

Food is very good, atmosphere is wonderful when weather is good - great people watching - prices are reasonable and waitstaff is funky and efficient. Only real problem is parking and the supposed parking spaces "advertised" on website don't really exist - streets all around are restricted parking for residents only - big bummer.

I would go back. The food was good and it was a nice little place. Our server started out okay, but then tended to forget about us and by the end had an attitude of she really didn't care. She even seemed offended when I ordered dessert. Service is a huge thing to me, however I could tell this wasn't the norm from the interaction I received from other members of the staff there.

Food was excellent. They did not have the mix for the first couple of drinks I wanted, which was a Debbie Downer. Not that it is always like this, but a few tables were groups of men that talked very loud. The food, staff, and price were good. I would recommend this restaurant.

i made a reservation and when I got to the restaurant that reservation was not honored. And with no apology, either. If you are considering restaurants, chose another. There are plenty of better ones to chose from.

Me and two other friends went for brunch this past Sunday. Our waiter made our time there lovely. His service was excellent and knowledge of the food choices made me confident in my order. I had crab cakes with eggs and potatoes..which was bomb! Oh yea the mimosas will have you sending texts to your ex lol (they were goodt!)

Food was very good, we had bbq chicken pizza, grilled cheese, filet mignon, mahi sandwich. Everyone was happy with their meal except the filet was very delayed after everyone else had their food due to a mixup in the kitchen, our friend felt she should have had some kind of discount but none was offered. Service was okay, felt like our server was not the most confident but seemed to be trying very hard, which we appreciated.
