I had the 3 for $13 lunch, soup and salad were good, the chicken sandwich was inedible, undercooked, not pink or bleeding, but could not cut with a knife and had to spit out my bite. Tasted like chewing raw fat. I told the waitress and showed her how the chicken wouldn’t even cut with a knife. Told her to tell the chef. Never heard any feedback. Other party had fried chicken, stated it was good. The other two guests had the fried green tomatoes and enjoyed it. Parking difficult to find and very expensive. Service was good, attentive enough.

Food was tasty but although the restaurant was not full the kitchen was extremely slow. On top of it, service staff was not even checking on our order. The appetizer took at least 20 minutes and the main entree a half-hour. The bartender was also not attentive. Will not return.

Went in for brunch, expected it to be busy. Didn’t expect to be treated poorly. Had a reservation, checked in, was told we would be seated shortly. Not a problem, I understand if there’s not a table we can’t be seated at one. What I do not understand is that when I approached what I believe to be a manager (female, brunette) to ask about out table 15 minutes later that I would be treated like dirt. She refused to look me in the eye and spoke to me so rudely saying, “she was busy and she’d be helping others there after”. A simple “I’m sorry, I’ll be with you in a moment would’ve done.

We really enjoyed our meal. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes were down home good. The chorizo meatloaf was super, too. Our server was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Nice location between Union Station and light rail and a short block from the Mall ride. A great discovery for us.

First time there it was pretty fabulous. The waiter sorry I forgot his name but he he was wonderful. He let us take our time and he explained everything that we asked with a welcoming smile. As far as the food it was outstanding, everyone had a different dish and not one of us had a complaint only great things to say and we all agreed was just so tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant it will not disappoint and yes you’ll want to go back again. As we can’t wait to do.

We made a reservation but got to the restaurant early but they were able to seat us. It took a while for our waiter to come by. Once he did we ordered drinks and an appetizer and it took a while to get our drinks. The food was very good, but did not come out hot. The value of our meal and drinks was great and overall, our waiter was very friendly and personable. We plan to go back!

Food was really good for busy NYE dinner. Service was slow and out biscuits came out somewhat cold and slightly stale but the rest of the food made up for it. The shrimp and grits are amazing (I’m from AL!) and the fried green tomatoes are a must try!

Go there for the chicken... it was great... both fried and roasted chicken was lovely. The ribs were mediocre and would have been much better without the added sauce. Tested like warm catsup the was poured on the dry rubbed ribs. The food was warm, but nothing was served "hot off the skillet." It must have been sitting under heat lamps for some time. Once we alerted our server that we were being neglected on drinks and general attention, the service got better. The place was about 1/3 full at 730 on a Sunday night, so there was no reason for drinks or service to lag.

I had a good experience. Ordered sweet ice tea with free refills and it was really good.
My boyfriend and I got the fried chicken honey dusted, cast iron pork, and banana pudding for dessert. The fried chicken white meat was dry but the flavor was good. I liked the pork and banana pudding.

Our server was so lovely as we waited a half hour or more for a guest to arrive, and had water and coffee while waiting. She didn’t seem irritated, didn’t pressure us to order, and kept refilling as if we had ordered expensive champagne. Once we all ordered the food was prompt and absolutely delicious. We will be back and will recommend wildly.

The worst service I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The hostess was incredibly rude. We were seated at a high top instead of standard seating even though we’d specifically reserved standard seating. When I mentioned this I was snarkily told that we could wait another 45 minutes or take the high top. We had three separate servers before they finally settled on one, one of our sides never arrived, and no one checked on us after the food was delivered so waters were not refilled and we could not order additional drinks. Will never go back.

I love this restaurant! Love the cocktails, service, and the food especially! Everything I have ever had here is wonderful. My only suggestion, is when customers request at booking a special occasion like a birthday, and would like an intimate table for the group, seating them at the entrance by the door may not be the best table to celebrate. :) Got a little push back from the hostess when I said that wasn't ideal, and we would wait for a better table...otherwise, it's a perfect downtown spot, vibrant, energetic, and close to so much downtown!
