    Generally underwhelming. Went for Sunday brunch. They didn’t have our reservation in the system, which was fine because the restaurant was only half full. Despite not being particularly busy, we went most of the meal without drinks because our waitress never checked in for refills. Ended up having to flag her down for the check. Pictured are the breakfast nachos - sounded great, but were pretty bland. Would not get again. When the waitress asked, my fiancé requested his burger medium rare and it came well done and dried out. Our friend’s chicken did look good and the restaurant itself is cute. We do not live nearby, but this is not somewhere we’d return to if we were local.

    This has place has so much potential. The atmosphere was great and the service was ok, but the food needed a little work. There are just a few little minor adjustments and the food would have been on point. I may not come here again.

    Family weekend at Alabama with the whole family. This was an exceptional choice - we felt like part of a family, and enjoyed a exceptionally tasty food, and perfect service. Highly recommended.

    We had a wonderful family dinner for my Mother-in-law but this would also make an excellent date night. The service was great and the food was delicious. Nice seafood selection and plenty of variety in the menu. Highly recommend and will return.

    The fish tacos and vodka pasta were very good. The frose was excellent, wonderful after a 100 degree move-in day. However, the hamburger was way over done. Miles beyond medium rare. My husband couldn’t even eat it. But, the server immediately compensated us. Indeed, he was a great server and even volunteered that the grilled fish taco was the way to go…which I really appreciated.

    I understand the economic need for restaurants to sell the table more than once an evening. But the waiters clearly pushed it too far, giving you the constant impression of hurry and need to finish. Not a pleasant experience.

    My wife, son, and I arrived approximately 1:30pm on Saturday November 20th, 2021. Waited 3 or 4 minutes for the server to acknowledge we were standing inside the restaurant waiting for a table. Then waited another 10 minutes to order drinks, but they don't have all the beers listed on the chalk board and they all looked at the chalkboard puzzled at the beer list. Our poor server was covering all 4 or 5 tables by himself and getting no help from the bartender or any of the kitchen staff, who were just standing around on their phones. My wife's salad was good. The fish tacos I ordered had enough cole slaw liquid (I presume) to pour out like a faucet covering the whole plate with a pool making the tacos and the French fries very soggy. They need a different method to make the tacos. Several minutes after finishing my beer and getting the check, I asked for a glass of water. 15 minutes later, no water. Never got the water. My wife had a better experience during a previous meal. They could really benefit from a manager.

    This is the first time I’ve ever done a review but this was awful. We waited over an hour and no food. People were walking out. The waitress (was not her fault) offered to give us food from people that walked out although it was not what we ordered. It was average. Finally got the lobster ravioli and it was frozen and inedible. We were there about 2 1/2 hours and didn’t eat. Horrible.

    Clever menu, well prepared food. Enjoyed it. Only problem was the service. The server was great, but she was the only one in the place. She ended up having to work 7 or 8 tables.

    One of my favorite places in T-town. Even though the menu is limited, there is always something for everyone to enjoy. We’ve enjoyed many breakfasts here and we recently celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday with family and friends. The blueberry pancakes with lemon zest in the batter were amazing! You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu and the staff are wonderful!
