If you are going for brunch, the Brunch Board is a secret menu item that you should definitely try. It has a combination of several yummy brunch items such as fried chicken, waffles, deviled eggs, pecan pancakes, and avocado toast. The orange juice is freshly squeezed tasting, and the batter on the fried chicken tenders is the best I've ever had. It's totally amazing. This is place is definitely worth a visit if you've never been before. We will most certainly be back!

This was our first visit to State Fair and we loved the ambiance of the restaurant. We made a reservation so getting our table was easy and we didn’t have to wait. The food was good as well as the drinks but the service unfortunately was lacking. We were only able to order one cocktail our entire meal and weren’t checked on until after we were done eating and it wasn’t even that crowded. We will probably give it another chance because we enjoyed the food & cocktails but we really hope that the service is a better on our second visit.

Service was incredibly slow. The food came out cold and 3 items had to be sent back. Iced tea was only refilled when repeatedly asked. Sad that a great place has fallen.

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.
