While researching restaurants in the area, we came across this one that had a great brunch menu ( something vegan for my niece running ). So glad we picked the Derby. Great drinks, menu and atmosphere and our lovely server Kelsey. Thank you.

Server was attentive. It wasn't very busy but it was also a Monday on valentines day. I got a margarita and it was decent but I'm also picky. The street corn nachos were yummy. I would recommend this place for a casual meal with friends.

We had fish and chips, Nashville chicken sandwich, and fried green tomatoes. Outside seating was the way to go, as inside was quite loud, and they have a nice private area for seating (pedestrians are separated by a fence around the private patio).

The drinks we ended up getting were really good in the beginning but as dinner went on, they started to get a bit bitter. If I’d go again, I’d just drink them faster. As for our food, from the appetizers to the entrees, we just weren’t feeling it. Not sure if it was that we weren’t to hungry at that point or if it just wasn’t what we expected. It wasn’t a bad dinner tho definitely didn’t feel like it was worth the $90+ that it was for a table of 2.

The location is great, the food was good. What I found to be mediocre was the service. I know places are shortstaffed, and overworked, however the attitudes still need to be welcoming and positive. I felt the manager was not very welcoming and our waitress was frazzled. We had to ask her several times for missing orders. Not saying I wouldn't give it another chance, but with so many other cool places to try out in the area, it will be awhile before I return.

We were seated outdoors so there is the traffic noise, no real problem with that. The tacos and drinks were great. Outstanding service from our waitress. We were even checked up on by someone who seemed like a manager, she was making sure that we were having a good experience, we were. I Love this place. We have been here several times and it’s definitely a wonderful dining experience.

Also had fried green tomatoes that were not good, cut into wedges and tasted like pickles. Very disappointed in the green tomatoes. Over all good, food was not anything to be thrilled by. Service was great, loved our server! Drinks were good (had wine and beer).

The chicken wings are so delicious even with no added sauce which is unusual, calamari in the garlic aioli dipping sauce we also loved 🥰 and the prime rib dip we’ve had it several times in the last year and all I can say is I can’t wait to have it again ❤️
