We're serving up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes & cocktails out of our 'from scratch only' kitchen and bar. Microwave? Never heard of it. We use slow-cooking methods on our live wood grill, smoker and spit because everything tastes better that way. And all this goodness is served to you as you kick your feet up in one of our rocking chairs, dine at a fancy table or relax out on the porch.

Purple Rain cocktail is delicious. Goat Cheese Fondue is a must. Salmon over ancient grains is scrumptious. Our waiter was super patient with us. Baybrook location outdoor seating is loud due to traffic.

The service was extremely slow. It took probably 20 minutes before anyone came to the table to ask for our drink orders. The appetizer, food, dessert all took a long time to arrive. The food was ok, but none of it what we were really expecting. The best part of the meal, by far, is the dessert. The Whiskey Cake is truly amazing. If you come for any one thing, that should be it. (Or, if you're going for brunch, the Monkey Bread is also delicious.) But, only go if you have PLENTY of time and are ok with it being a very long wait for everything.

I really enjoyed my meal there but it was a little expensive. This will be like a place I go to on my birthday or a special date. I think it was a little loud in there and might have enjoyed myself a little bit more if the music was turned down a bit.

The good and service was amazing! We sat in the half booth, half table in the middle on the right. We started with the local board which was delicious and my boyfriend loved the Guava Gimlet. He ordered the OMG burger and adult mac and cheese and I ordered the Texas redfish and brussel sprouts. Everything was outstanding! The service was phenomenal, she was attentive without coming by too much and it was perfect. We ended the night with a whiskey cake which my boyfriend said was the best dessert we’ve ever had.

I usually like coming here but every time I do I am sat in the bar area. The first time I didn’t mind but this is getting ridiculous. Next time I’ll ask to sit somewhere else. The food is always great so I am not bothered at all in that. This time the service was just not good. The server kept disappearing. We never got drink refills. Everything he did just seemed to be in slow motion. I gave 3 stars since the food was good and usually I leave much happier.

The noise level was so loud (with the house music), that we couldn’t have a conversation with the people at our table, and it made it difficult to hear our waitress. We inquired twice about the loud house music, but they told us that nothing could be done about this. Keep in mind it was a Sunday Easter brunch meal and it made the whole experience horrible. The food was just ok, and our cocktail drinks arrived 20 mins after we ordered them. The cold drinks were served in a hot glass. Thumbs down!

Early on Easter Sunday morning for brunch at 9. I think most people thought they didn’t open until 10 so very few people there initially. Great for us. Prompt service and good food.

This was our second visit. I had the Easter cocktail and the banana hammock. I preferred the banana cocktail better the first time as something seemed to be missing this visit. My boyfriend got the IPA flight again bc he loved it.

We got the Goat cheese fondue again because it is our favorite thing on the menu. For entrees I tried the short ribs, and he got the chicken and cheese melt. His was better as it had more flavors. Mine could have used pickled onions or green tomatoes to offer more flavors. We got the chicken and waffles the first time and I preferred that. Overall great experience.

We had to wait 20 minutes due to wait staff being in a meeting. There were MANY open tables, just no one to serve us or sit us at our reserved table. We would have left, but driving to another restaurant would have been equivalent time.

Over all, the experience was good. However, we were seated outside and it was kind of chilly, so we asked if they could bring the shades down, to help with the cold wind and they said they would, but no one ever came to actually do it.
