Food was decent. Some of the items aren’t available during the week so that’s lame. Service was ok considering it was Wednesday. The only thing that grossed us out was the bartender not using gloves to prep the drinks. He was touching all the garnishes with his fingers and not washing his hands afterwards. During COVID-19, that’s a no-go. I ordered a Bloody Mary and didn’t enjoy the side items with it.

Reasonable Sunday lunch but huge portions and rather weird flavor combinations in the bowls. The fried chicken is delicious as were the biscuits!

First time visiting, kids had been to the restaurant before so it was their recommended spot. The ladies enjoyed their brunch w/ mimosas. The biscuits to start off are a wise choice. As I like sriracha, the chicken and waffles w/ sriracha was tasty. Not hot, a nice spicy bite with the sweet syrup. I recommend visiting if you are looking for breakfast/brunch or late evening snack.

My friend found the blueberry waffles too sweet and would have preferred just blueberries instead of the blueberry/jam/syrup mixture. We loved the biscuits and I enjoyed the fried green tomatoes.

But what really made our experience was our server Liz. She was so kind and attentive and friendly without being too invasive or pushy. She answered our questions and made us feel welcome and had such a great demeanor it really made us enjoy our experience and made it a memorable meal

The food is always precooked and cold by the time it gets to the table.

Sat outside on a gorgeous Sunday for my bday. The service was exceptional. The food - for the most part - was spot on. Fried green tomatoes, biscuits, sweet potato pancakes were all BOMB. Two different mimosas were delicious and strong. They fell short on the main dish - which was the same for both of us: the Fit to Be Tied Pickled the potato cracklins lacked any flavor, were undercooked, and weren't crispy; the fried pickles were wet and soggy; the pimento cheese was under-seasoned and a bit clumpy. Shame on this because a. it was the main dish, b. we both had it, and c. everything else was so damn good. I would never order that dish again.

I came here on Wednesday April 7th for my birthday and it was awesome. They were so kind and treated me like a princess, which was nice. Having my second quarantine birthday wasn't that great but they made it so memorable. I felt bad for the servers who were working because they were the only servers in the whole restaurant. Overall, it was so wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Easter Brunch reservation for 3. Sat outside. Enjoyed bloody mary while waiting for our appetizers. Restaurant is following all Covid Protocols. Great service and delicious food. The buscuits and fried pickles are amazing! The Shrimp and grits was our favorite entree!

My French tasted absolutely awful. Bathrooms were horrendous, it was literally like no one looked after it. Waiter took forever to come and ask for our orders. My bacon for some reason tasted like bananas. I tasted one piece and almost gagged in my mouth. This is very disappointing because I love the Tupelo Homey in Virginia Beach but this one on Arlington was so bad. I don’t recommend anyone coming here. Just pick another restaurant to eat at.

Date night in the time of COVID-19. Love the THC; My husband and decided to go out. Everyone respected the social distancing guidelines and they all seem to be enjoying themselves. Friendly and kind staff. We ordered the “biscuits for a cause”, because it helps to give back in the smallest way – pay it forward people. My husband tried the shrimp and grits and love them! I had a BBQ burger and fries. Delicious! I had a mini banana pudding and my husband had the mini chocolatey pecan pie, both were excellent. We will be back for more date nights.
