    The Hubby and I had brunch at this restaurant Father’s Day 2024. Our reservation was early at 10am. The staff (even that early) was bright and provide excellent care. The food and ambiance was great 😊

    I had been there before about 2 years ago but I didn’t remember it being as bad as it was this time. I had the soul food plate & not one of the items on the plate were any good. The 2 ladies I was with both had shrimp & grits & complained that the shrimp was hard and overcooked. The bill was worse than the food. We all paid separately BUT since the table as a whole was over $100, we ALL had to pay 18% gratuity. All I could think of was what a rip off. I brought a mimosa tower for $75 but with tax & gratuity, my bill was a whopping $102. If I was to ever go back, it would be just to have drinks & listen to music because the food is not worth the price.

    I liked the experience overall but a MAJOR! drawback for me is the parking situation. I am tired of going to these restaurants that you have to valet to eat there, risk getting towed, or walking a country mile to the restaurant and still hope you don't get ticketed. You are making the money so why not let people park in the parking lot for free!! I spent roughly $250 here for 3 of us (2of us orderd brunch) but also had to pay $20 to park because I couldn't find any on my own. Although I enjoyed myself I can't say that I will return because I'm getting tired of all the parking issues. I can definitely go to some places I know of that have great food and drinks and the parking is free.

    Took my fiancée to the Mother’s Day Brunch and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. From the saxophonist to the food and drinks as well as the service was on point.

    Although my reservations was for 2 it was only myself so I sat at the bar. Service and bartender was amazing and sweet. Ordered my drink and food and it didn’t take long at all for the food to come out and it was amazing.

    Booked and received a firmed reservation time (party of 4-standard inside seating) for the crawfish pop up. Once arrived, I was informed that it was "family style " seating on the patio and I was to pick any open table. However, there was no open seats for me and my party to sit together. We were able to make the best of it under the circumstances and had a great time.

    My experience was very good. The bartender was very nice. The food I'd rate a 8/10. I asked for well done wings (twice) and they weren't.
