    It appeared that the young lady at the check-in counter wasn't happy about being at work. She appeared annoyed. We had a 5:30 pm reservation for three people with a special request to be seated by a window. Unfortunately, she did not read our reservation request because she tried sitting us at three different locations before giving us a window seat which all except one table was available. She abruptly placed two menus on the table and walked away. At this point, we should have just left the restuarant. We did not have the best experience with the food choices. However, the Pan steamed mussels were delicious. The server, Lia was great and attentive. Thank you Lia!

    Food and service were fantastic. We had plenty to eat and still took home leftovers. Ordered crab dip, twin chicken biscuits, chicken and waffles, and a side of sausage gravy.

    Front desk staff was clueless where to sit us and how to find our reservation. We were seated for more than 5 mins before we asked for our waiter and then we were asked, do you need him? Well, yes, we wanted to order. The waiter finally comes over and tells us he only has one table and can help us but immediately walked away. We went to the bar instead and the service was excellent. Food was good.

    First time there. We live in Pasadena but were looking for something different. Very good food, drinks and atmosphere. Felt like we were being rushed in the end by the waiter, but we will still return.

    The food and service were outstanding. The only complaint I have is that they automatically append a 20% gratuity for a table of 2 during happy hour without notifying the patrons of this policy. The service was worthy of the gratuity it just was surprising that we had it put on our tab without notice.

    The restaurant is very open, and very loud. The shrimp and grits were very good, the Stromboli was very burnt. I was shocked that someone would serve a Stromboli like that, and dismayed that no one checked on our food. It’s shocking to me how great the shrimp and grits was, and how bad the Stromboli was.

    This was not a good experience at all. The waitress was less than pleasant to start with. The “bottomless crushes” only include orange and grapefruit and she was super rude about that. My food arrived cold. I don’t eat anything that has been sent back to the kitchen so I just asked for a box to take the food home to my dog. The manager was rude as well. The waitress never once after this point asked me if I wanted anything else including a drink, water, etc. When we left and walked past the manager, he didn’t even speak to us. Don’t waste your money here!

    It was too loud inside so we opted to sit outside. The table was in the exposed part of the parking lot and it was too hot. I had the salmon sandwich, it was okay. Salad was good, husband liked his burger. Good for groups with kids.

    My friend and I were sitting at our table for at least 25 minutes before our server finally came and greeted us (my friend also arrived late so I was there for about 15 minutes already). Throughout our entire experience, he very rarely came to check on us, we had to flag him down evey time we needed something. I gave three stars because besides our server, the food was amazing and I had enough to take home for another day.

    My only nit to pick is the music piped into the tent area, while people are eating and visiting. Why? They want to hear each other, not have to speak over the music. Consider cutting it out when you have lots of people under the tent.

    Very friendly, yet very slow food service. 30 minutes to get apps. Portions are generous, flavors and preparation a bit lacking. Chicken not blackened, white wine sauce on mussels and chicken not reduced enough, taste of alcohol remaining.

    Always a good time. Like having brunch here, especially with friends. Wish the bottomless brunch drinks could let you choose the different flavors, its just the basics that is offered for brunch. I'm not totally mad, just wish we can get the different flavors. Food is always good, and never had a problem with staff, also friendly as well.

    Brunch is a busy time so there was a long wait for things but understandable. The deviled eggs were awesome I just wanted to go to the kitchen and show them how to pipe the filling in so that it looked more appealing. Very surprised at how good the turkey was on the turkey sandwich. Not deli turkey like I was expecting.

    The service was a little slow, but overall pretty good. They have a large selection of sandwiches but only six dinner entrees. I really wish they would bring the steak entree back. With that, I think this is more of a lunch destination then a place to go for dinner.

    We were seated promptly at a perfect table near a window. The server checked on us regularly as our conversation delayed the selection of our orders. The crab cakes were excellent - very flavorful. The Maryland Club Sandwich was also a favorite. We will be back!

    Went for a late breakfast on a Monday and was not impressed with anything. Menu looked good online, but it’s dirty, loud, and just mediocre food. Made reservations to sit inside and was told we needed to sit outside on an 80 degree day.
