The atmosphere is lively and fun. Ordered the burrito - it’s enough for 2 people!! Good flavors but I wish I had ordered something else. The different drink flights you can order are really cool, I’ll be back to get one of them next time. I will bring back a big group to try the “brunch board.”

I didn’t realize this was a chain restaurant (with all the lack of personality you get with a chain franchise) but the cocktails and food were very good. The music was way too loud and the table was unusually large so having a conversation was out of the question. Service was weak but it was busy. I’ll check it out again when things are back to normal (post-COVID).

Just wasn’t the best service starting with the hostess and then the waiter seemed distracted and not very experienced! Most of the food was really good but my shrimp Louie was marginal with old tomatoes and way too much plain old lettuce!
Better luck next time!
Great interior decor and great valet parking attendant!

This is a great brunch spot to have on your list. The food and drinks were good and they had the service to match it. The only hiccup we had was that the hostess wouldn’t allow us to add 1 more person to our table. But other than that no complaints. We will be back

Overall I like this place and food is good.

Rock n roll was very load upon entering at 1125am... was kind of like the music was tuned for the staff getting cranked up or finishing a shift rather than customers coming in to visit over theirlunch.

Hostess did turn music down and that helped. Soundtrack or station just had a bunch of wailing guitar solos and 80s era high voices.

It was my birthday and even though I fix t get a good review from a friend who attended I wanted to try it on my own. The food was not good as far as the brunch menu. All of us basically picked over it and left plenty of food on the plates. It was either bland or had hard biscuits or something distasteful on it. The mimosas were good though. I more than likely won’t return definitely not worth the drive.

Hubby was craving brunch so we made a quick reservation & headed over. The extensive menu makes it difficult to decide but I went with the State Fare Breakfast (2 eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns & a biscuit as big as my hand). Wow!! Hubby had the Burrito & our server told him to prepare himself... OMG! Huge & full of deliciousness!! Neither of us could eat every bite but left fully satisfied. I also enjoyed a pineapple mimosa while he had a spicy Bloody Mary. Whew! So good. The coffee was super hot & awesome. Our server was friendly & personable. We had a wonderful experience & will definitely be back.
