The service and ambience was absolutely excellent. The food was very good but a little pricey. Would definitely come back.

Fantastic food, fantastic service. Would definitely recommend to a friend. It's not exactly the atmosphere I was expecting. Different, but refreshing. Maybe something dinner is what I'm used to with finer dining.

Best steak of my life and I could eat anything if it had the firecracker shrimp sauce on it. Will be back.

Our first time experience was note worthy. The menu selections were just right.
Our server was a fine young man with great manners and respect.

We will most certainly be going back...

This was my second time here. We order the Mahi Mahi and it was bland. The Salmon special was oily. The Redfish however was good as was the scallops.

Trendy atmosphere, excellent food, a much needed upscale dining experience for Madison, AL and good alternative to downtown Huntsville’s Purveyor, Cotton Row, and Commerce Kitchen

Pro:

Our server, Justin, was fantastic and the food was good after sending each entrée back once.

Con:

The OWNER!

I had to send back my $75 New Zealand Elk because it was cold and my wife's Wahoo fish because it was raw. I've never been to a restaurant where a fish fillet was served raw without the menu explicitly saying so. The owner proceeded to come by our table to check on us twice. Once to tell me that they let the elk sit for 3-4 minutes to rest and that's why it was cold. Ok... still doesn't explain why you would serve cold meat but stuff happens.. I get it. What really aggravated me was the owner coming buy a second time explaining that if we did not want our fish "medium-rare" we should specify well-done next time. Really?? Unless its tuna, high class salmon, or dang sashimi you should be competent enough to instruct your staff to fully cook a fish.

All in all, our server was great, the food was great (eventually), but the owner is the reason I will not be coming back.

Save your 200$.

The food was excellent. The ribeye was exceptional. Not much ambience, probably partly due to Covid protocols.

It was the first time we had dressed up and eaten at a nice restaurant in 1 1/2 years. Chose Tom Brown's as we had never been there. Loved the place from the moment we walked in as the decor was fabulous. Staff was very pleasant, and our waiter was outstanding! Saw food on the menu I had never seen before. We had 5 different entrees, and all were delicious. Before dinner drinks were great, and the desserts were fabulous. It was a truly special evening...a bit pricey but we vowed to come back.

The steak was actually tough and chewy. The sauce was a little too heavy on the egg roll appetizer. Flavors were good. Atmosphere was great. Service was top notch. Would I recommend it? eh...not sure

The food was great. We got the tuna app, lobster bisque, ribeye, and shrimp. Steak was pretty undercooked (ordered med rare and it was as rare as the tuna 😅) but by that time we were stuffed, so just took it to-go and it was perfect for reheating later. Service was very good even though our server was quite busy with a needy 10-top at the same time. I let her know we didn't want to rush the evening and everything was paced well. When I made the reservation on OpenTable I left a note saying that it was my husband's birthday dinner. Would've been nice for that to be acknowledged in some small way but I guess it got missed somehow. Still was a great evening and we will return.

The food was good. I had the shrimp and grits.

There really wasn't anything on the appetizer menu that was simple and enjoyable, everything was either seafood or hot and spicy.

Our server did a great job.

Celebrated our anniversary. We had appetizers, steak and fish, desserts and drinks - it was all great.
Our server was very kind and attentive.
Since we don’t buy gifts for anniversary it was worth the money.

Not a single employee was masked. We had all been vaccinated, but we won’t be back for a while. The service was okay, but less than advertised. The wine list is good as are the house wines. The craft beer list is diverse. My “2 soft shell crabs” were the front portions of two halves, nowhere near two crabs. The TB steak got a good review.
This will not be a favorite.
