We start with cage free, free roaming, all natural chicken. It’s brined, dredged, then dropped into custom-built fryers. Its got a little kick and is served with our house made hot honey.

Food is always excellent, consistent and high quality. Service usually excellent as well, even with it typically being so busy at all times. Really great feel and food, always makes for a great time.

Only disappointment was the french fries were extremely salty. Usually I love them, but not last night. Hopefully, this was just a mistake by one of the chefs.

The chicken and spoon bread are “ just like buttah (butter)!” Food and service are always exceptionally great. We’ve bee fortunate; despite the labor shortages this industry is currently experiencing, the waitresses and waiters we’ve had are always on top of it, friendly and so helpful. We live in CBD so it’s cool to have a go-to favorite eatery that’s within walking distance. 👍🏼

Took my niece and her roommate here for the first time for a 6 pm reservation. Got to the restaurant at 5:40 and was seated immediately. Should have known that after 20 minutes with no server coming over or sight of the server that it was going to be a long night and they weren’t even that busy yet. Around 6 our server finally made an appearance and told us what they were famous for and took our drink order. I got my coke right away but my companions got blackberry lemonades from the bar. Ten minutes later, one lemonade came out but not the other. No server in sight again. Meanwhile the diners that came in 30 minutes after us have received their drinks and already put their orders in. Server finally shows up again and realizes that only one lemonade came out so he left to see where it was. Another 10 minutes pass and the second lemonade comes out. Server disappears again to check on his other tables ( at least that’s what I assumed) and then finally comes and takes our order. Diners that came in way after us and sat at the bar and at the table down from ours have gotten their food, ate their food, got their checks, and left and we continue to sit there for who knows how long. Another 20 minutes pass, we’re getting hangry and we still have no idea where our server or where our food is. So far we’ve been at the restaurant for at least 50 minutes and have only gotten drinks. Our food finally comes and the horseradish mashed potatoes that I ordered with my Fried Chicken BLT are cold and I’m sure my niece’s potatoes were too. At this point I’m so hungry that I would have eaten my arm. Server leaves us to eat and finally checks on us like 20 minutes later. Brings the check and then disappears again. My credit card and bill are sitting on the table for at least 10 minutes before the server comes to get it but in the meantime one of the managers comes and starts clearing some dishes. Entire meal took an hour more than it should have. Won’t be back

Great place for a birthday dinner! Lots of options for splitting sides with people and some amazing main dishes. 10/10 will be returning again. Went on a Tuesday evening and was seated and served promptly.

Our experience was outstanding! However, we believed that if we made a reservation days in advance, it meant that we would be seated immediately, when in reality we had to stand outside for roughly 15 minutes before our table was ready. Slightly annoying but the experience was still fantastic!

They put me and my father in a nearly empty and silent room. There was 1 other couple in the room who were loudly watching tik toks. This probably would have been less annoying if there were other people or even music on but it was just listening to someone else's phone in a silent room. I usually have a good time and the ambience is usually good but apparently making a reservation for once was a mistake.

This was our second visit this year and there were some delays with the food coming out promptly. The staff went WAY above and beyond to make up for it. They took what could have been a negative experience and turned in into a positive one.

The restaurant itself was awesome. Great Service, Food was everything we were hopping for!!! Drinks were good :)
Only issue we encountered was having to wait for our table. We booked on Open Table, when we arrived at our reservation time we were told it was going to be a bit of a wait as somehow Open Table over booked them for our time. We were told a bit meant 15 to 20 min we assumed 1/2 hour but it was more like 40 minutes. knowing that this place is always booked i make this reservation way in advance and this was really the only time Open table said was open. I guess it was a glitch with Open Table because by the time we were finished the palace was half empty and no one waiting.

Would have been better review except for two things -
1) Beer list on menu was out of date. Either waiter misunderstood me or I misunderstood him. He brought me a different beer from the same brewer, which was a surprise to me. Good beer, but higher alcohol level than I expected (and as a result a smaller pour than I expected).
2) Salads arrived at the same time as the main dishes.

Otherwise, as typical, the chicken was better than the chains (and at least twice as expensive). Side dishes are where they really excel. You could make a tasty meal out of their appetizers and sides!
