    In town visiting from Miami and dined here for Sunday brunch. Had Van as our sever and I must say he’s the absolute best. You guys should definitely recognize him at your establishment. He’s was super nice and attentive. Engaged and conversation with him also just an all around solid dude. The food and drinks were very great as well. Had wings, salmon, grits, eggs just to name a few. Whenever I’m in town will be dining here. I made reservations in advance and as soon as we arrived we were greeted and seat. The DJ on Sunday played that 🔥 music and was super cool also.

    Much better than my first experience. Food came out timely and it tasted very good. I was hoping for a better experience and I was not disappointed. However, hostess and wait staff were good both visits.

    It was my friends first time at The Block and she really enjoyed herself. The food was great, flavorful and rightly priced. I love that it is a black owned establishment as well. Continue the great service.

    From the moment our party of (7) walked in the door, the service was great from beginning to end. The food was amazing and was at our table quickly. One small drawback was their digital website was not available to view the menu when we sat at the table. But the team called their IT department and in less than five minutes, it was up and running! I will be back for sure and SOON!!!

    Before a Sunday DSO concert, the place was TOO LOUD, with a dj next to our table. Music was okay, but made it very difficult to enjoy a meal. No printed menu available. no juice of choice available (it IS a brunch). Waited from 1:00 to 1:20 for a 1:00 pm reservation. I looked for brunch or early dinner, not nightclub/bar. Not like the last time I was here a year ago,

    The food was so fresh, prepared then and there. I had delish not too spicy shrimp and grits with brocolotini. Had the spinach dip appetizer which was cheesy and good with grilled pita so could lo don't finish my entree - boxed it up for later. First time here but not last.

    The food was absolutely amazing! The interior was nicely decorated and lively. The service however left much to be desired. I’m really on the fence about establishments that do automatic gratuity on every check. I’m all for waitstaff being paid fairly, but sometimes I think it takes away any motivation to provide good service. I’d definitely order takeout from here but I don’t think I’d dine in again.

    This place is a neighborhood restaurant. The food is typical bar food with a slight twist. Like sweet chili wings and bang, bang shrimp, in which, everyone serves these days, just with a different spin on the sauce. The best thing was the short rib tacos. They didn't short you on the meat. 😁This place is more for the college folk around in the area.

    The food was outstanding! Especially the desserts. Everyone in our party loved their meals. 10/10 would recommend the food. Unfortunately, it was packed and there was only one waitress working the entire restaurant. We waited a very long time for a food to arrive. We were bummed for our waitress. Totally not her fault!
