Such a fun spot! Eva was super attentive, helpful and friendly! The trash can nachos were bomb and the smoky watermelon was delish. My husband loved the hot chick and the mac and cheese was a hit. Definitely will be back again! Also BIRTHDAY CHEESECAKE.

Food was cooked as requested. Bartender was rude when asked about happy hour, he just said to look at the menu. Server was amazing however. She was super friendly and connected with my party. The margaritas were watered down but the specialty drinks were really good. Might try it again.

Made reservation. Table not available for reservation. After being seated staff had to be flagged down to take order after 20+ min wait. Claimed waiter was sick and we had already been helped. Given discount for mix up but the wait put me past my parking validation and had to pay. Restaurant was half full with some employees standing around.

The tables are super close together in the standard area and there was one person laughing so loud and annoying 2 tables away. That alone ruined the experience. Also the watermelon drink was cute but it’s super small and costs 20$. I felt like I took 5 sips and it was gone. I would recommend just getting the bottomless mimosas for 18$. The food was amazing though and our server Victoria was awesome and took good care of us. The Mac fries were the best item we had.

This was our first time to this restaurant. The location is good and the ambiance was good. The food was decent but not great. (Hamburger, chicken sandwich, trash can nachos) The mixed drinks were very overpriced! Especially since they were not “great” drinks. With the prices, you expect excellent drinks.
The server was good and friendly. (Sierra) She did her best to make up for the drink issues and brought some humor to the table. She did a good job overall!

Our server Trinidad was amazing! She was knowledgeable of the menu, was patient, and even got the Mercury game put on for us! Drinks were excellent and food was good. We felt portion sizes were accurate for the price. The nachos were delicious and more than enough for 4 people. The DJ was a nice touch and it was great being able to see so many games at once. We will definitely be back!

Everything was just average, unfortunately. Drinks were the best part, although my pineapple drink was leaking from the bottom and I probably lost 1/4 of my drink. Waiter was nice. Starters were good (we got chicken and waffle sliders and triple dipper). Actual food was just okay. I wouldn’t get the Mac and cheese again (too sweet). We may come back again but only for drinks and appetizers.

Group of friends went out to dinner. It was pretty obvious the server was new/in training. She got my friend’s order wrong and while the re-make was supposed to be put in 8 minutes, it was another 25 before she got her burger. Luckily, it was the best item we had. The steak on the salad was tough and over cooked and the short rib sandwich did not list sauce on the menu, so my other friend was extremely disappointed when his sandwich came covered in a sauce.
Drinks took a while and so did closing out our check.
I’d like to come back for a brunch and hope for some much better service and a better value for the food.

Overall, my least favorite experience. Terrible service from start to end. Made a reservation for a high top table, got a tiny table in the back that could hardly seat the amount of guest we had. Waitress was overworked and could hardly make time for us. Food undercooked.

Poor experience and very disappointed. The food was mediocre. They didn’t have half the items we wanted. They switched service half was through our experience we didn’t have anyone take our order for 45mins after and then they tried telling us we couldn’t have the rest of our bottomless mimosas because that’s stops at 2pm. We got there at 1.15 and no one said that. The only good thing about the food was the waffle board. Everything else was either to salty (almost inedible) or just plan bad. I was really looking forward to this place but was not worth it. There are way too many great brunch spots in Phoenix.

After seeing all the hype videos on Instagram, I knew this was the place to try for my birthday brunch. It has a great atmosphere with plenty of drink and food options. We loved the waffle board and the bottomless mimosas the most but everything was super delicious. Would highly recommend to others and want to come back to try other menu options! Only downside is it did get a bit loud due to the football games and was getting progressively busy as the morning went on and we saw our server less and less.

Here are the specifics of this terrible restaurant experience: We waited over 90 minutes for our food (and yes, we did have a reservation). Management and servers argued about who was at fault. Our food was not at all cooked as we requested. The runners repeatedly tried to give us food meant for other tables. Can't remember a worse eating experience. This is a very poorly run restaurant that is in total chaos as evidenced by not only our experience, but the experience of the diners around us as well. At least we know where never to eat in downtown Phoenix!

For restaurant week they served full portions from there menu. Unfortunately they brought all are food at once appetizers and entrees. Huge portions ..sever was new but was trying very hard to make things right. I think this place would be great for a drink and appetizers before a game or downtown event. .

Went for restaurant week and the kitchen closes before we even got our meal. Charged us almost the same price without even having a course. I asked about the price, and they said the charged more for the sides we got. They didn't say anything about that upon ordering it.

Been here multiple times and have never had a problem with service. We were sat at a table and didn’t see our server for 25 minutes, once we got served took a long time to get refills. All while seeing multiple staff members just walking around in a group during a Saturday brunch, very irritating.

Waited to be sat 20 minutes past our reservation- totally fine as it was super busy. Once we were sat we waited another 20 minutes where 3 staff members walked by and no one even stopped to say they’d be right with us. We had to get up and go somewhere else.
