Consistently great food, service, and experience! We’ve dined here as a couple before, but this was our first time as a larger group of 6. We were seated inside near the bar area, and the ambiance was great. Amanda was great at helping us to get our reservation updated when one couple couldn’t make it. Our drinks were delicious and came out quickly, and the food was hot and super tasty. Make sure to order the brussel sprouts, fried chicken skins, and the Mac n cheese. Perfect spot for getting the friends together. We will be back!

Wish they had a better selection of liquor but it all worked out. We’re happy going there for an hour every once in a while. Great price on burgers on Tuesdays and would you like a couple of the Happy Hour a plusappetizers

We had a party of 6. We did make a reservation for Sunday brunch at 12:15 and we were seated right away. Our waitress was prompt and our food was brought out quick. All of our food was really good. I had the honey cheddar biscuit and it was amazing !

4.5* overall. Service was slow, but they were slammed. Waiter was super nice as was manager and staff. We sat at the table closest to the interstate overpass right bu us and it was LOUD. Outside of the noise, we loved it. Food was great and mimosas was HUGE! We will be back.

Amazing food, great service. We sat outside so it was a little noisy, but that's to be expected under an overpass.

Mediocre at best. When I see hash browns, I don't think of home fries. The waiter didn't write the order down, so had to come back to verify. The biscuits were Luke warm. Nothing for kids and no dessert. I know we're in a pandemic, so I'll chalk it up to that.

We had friends visiting from out of town for the LSU game, so I was thankful that Overpass offered brunch at 9:00am so we could meet earlier on Sunday. The food was delicious and service was excellent. Just what we were looking for.

Our favorite spot for date night! We love to share a few starters (the brussel sprouts, truffle fries, string beans, and mac & cheese)! Also, they have *amazing* signature cocktails (my personal favorites are Interstate Lovesong and Electric Relaxation) :) ! The service, atmosphere, and location are wondaful :) the staff are always super friendly/attentive and remember my partner and I every time we go for dinner. 11/10 recommend making a reservation for dinner at the Overpass Merchant!

Food was delicious. Things like drinks took a little while. The part that sort of ruined things was the noise level. We made a reservation for the patio, hoping we could hear each other- but they had a DJ with a speaker pointed right at us to the point that it was very difficult to hear across the table. We asked if there was a slightly quieter spot (or hoping they would turn it down a notch) but no luck. Not a good choice if you are hoping to have an intimate (or any) conversation.
