    The food is wonderful and ample portions on the entrees. Some items are somewhat pricey for what you get, example the appetizer, of fried pimento cheese , is priced at 9.75 for 3 small pimento fritters. That means a party of 4 don’t get one, or 2 people have to share half of one, to accommodate the 4th person. Our waitress was nice , but not a very good server, forgetting a side order, and having to remind her, not refilling the water canister when empty twice. Also at near the end of the meal , she acknowledge that she didn’t know this was a special occasion. To her credit she did apologize and wished me a happy birthday several times. In spite of all these issues, the food was outstanding, so I gave them an overall 4.

    We had reservations for 730pm. It was after 8 before we had to ask for someone to come to our table the first time. The manager was really great to us trying to make up us sitting there 45 mins just to get drink orders. He comp'd first round for drinks and apps. But after that service still went downhill. The birthday girl didn't get her drink, food came out all separately. We never got refills, we had to find someone and ask for everything we got. Bad thing was is that they weren't even that busy.

    I like the slightly upscale feel of this place; not complete trash but not elite either which should make for good mix of people and good conversation. I had the chicken sandwich with avacado for lunch, and it was fantastic. My wife had a vegetable plate which she was a bit disappointed, but overall the food was very good. Will definitely go back for an after work drink or another lunch.

    Food was excellent as always. We were seated right away. And we were served drinks quickly but it took longer than usual for someone to take our order. Seemed to be only one server. Order came quickly once ordered.

    Good options for vegetarians—the veggie plate was creative and delicious. Also traditional southern offerings with some extra twists. Wasn’t at all crowded when we were there, so low noise but I imagine it could get noisy if crowded. Nice neighborhood, unremarkable setting but comfortably casual. Very friendly service.

    Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive. The menu was a creative twist on old favorites ... the best patty melt in the world really is just that. Gibson donut bread pudding was just so yummy. Be aware, portions are very generous, so plan on leftovers.

    Small place with creative menu. Unfortunately the creativity so not extend to the “salads” section of the menu - those options were not all that interesting. Other menu items were plentiful and varied. Our meals were good! No complaints. Service was casual and friendly.

    Early dinner. Strange in that they asked everyone if they had a reservation yet the place was completely empty. Food was very good. Not a large selection of beers or wine. Prices on the menu are less than what comes on the bill. We brought it to their attention and they just said “ok”. Hopefully they will reprint the menus with the correct prices because the menus are just legal size paper. The price differences were not huge maybe 20% overall, but it would have been more transparent if they acknowledged the increases verbally before ordering. Very strange. I will try them again hoping this was just a management over sight.

    Despite taking our reservation , the kitchen was closed and they wouldn’t serve us. This left us out on a limb Sunday night because not much else is open Sunday evenings in Memphis. We had been out doing activities all day and were hungry. C’mon. This shouldn’t be difficult…if you’re not open, don’t take reservations.

    I love the restaurant and the parking guys outside help. Love the personality of all the staff. But all of us at the table agreed that they use too much sugar in their food. I love desserts and all sweets but the sloppy joes and other dishes are too sweet. However… we will be back!

    The server we had was horrible. I dont recall ever having a server that bad. Another server had to bring us the check because our server was told but never brought it. My main complaint is that server. The food was great but because he wouldn't even refill my diet coke after 40 minutes, we decided to only eat appetizers.

    I’m not one to normally do a review but I would be doing this restaurant and team a dishonor. From the moment we showed up and checked in until we left - and we were the last to leave - the entire team was fantastic! The level of service and attention made the night and we had a large group.
