    Excellent service -- hostess and waitstaff were friendly, courteous and attentive. Fabulous food -- we came for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp & grits and the french toast. Love the vibe and the decor! Would definitely dine here again.

    HOT DAY ON AND NO AC. It was 93 degrees and humid and rest has no air. I love this rest. but has an ac issue. Last time the ac was on it dripped into your food so we had to move our plates over.

    Drinks were very expensive, and food portions which-in the past-were formidable are now... not so much. Overall I spent a lot of money for not enough.

    Even though we told the waiter we had to leave for a show around the corner by 7:15, he asked if I wanted another drink at 7:07. The food took over a half hour to appear so we had to shove 3 bites into our faces so we could be timely.

    Waiter was spectacular. Food was very good—I would have preferred a fluffier waffle with my fried chicken (too dense) but otherwise everything was great. Would absolutely recommend!

    Arrived just before 4 for happy hour- waitress was getting ready to go off shift and was sloowwww to assist us (and not worried about showing us we were no priority). Pitchers offered for HH are fun and the right size for sharing for two. Best part of this place is how quiet/calm it is at that time of day- you can have an actual conversation.

    We came here for dinner one night to celebrate her birthday. We had a wonderful time. The place was perfect for get together. The music is not too loud and we can talk without screaming & you can hear each other no problem. We had an amazing waiter that night. He was so attentive & very helpful. The food was good and the service was great. The only downside was a little pricey.

    Unique atmosphere. Food was good but hush puppies needed a touch of salt. Very generous portions. Husband has chicken and biscuit and I had shrimp and grits. Both delicious. Favorite side was the Brussel sprouts . Ordered ice tea but it was terrible!! Being a southerner, I know good ice tea! With a menu that has comfort food, you need ice tea!

    We have been to the Tipsy many times and for whatever reason it seems to have improved. The staff - always nice - could not have been nicer and more helpful (we had theater tickets and hence on a schedule) - the foos even better than usual. For the first time I tried one of their house cocktails - one of the best manhattans I have ever had

    Chose this place after reading reviews online... the place is very nice, service was good but the food was just ok...the food sounds great on the menu but we had burnt food, undercooked chicken and cold stuff as well. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this place to friends.

    Our friend Art recommended this local restaurant and we were very happy he did. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Wonderful cocktail list. Nice selection of comforting dishes. We shared all plates: a lovely salad with crunch and feta cheese, mac and cheese, hush puppies, deviled eggs, fried chicken, chicken liver mousse, delicata squash and feta, shrimp and grits, biscuits. I would go back again. Seems a great place to go after gallery hopping.
