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.

This is my go-to local favorite for foodie-pleasing locally-sourced cuisine. I've never been disappointed with the food here, not even a little bit. The hardest part is picking ONE thing to order. You'll have to come back again and again to try new things and the menu changes seasonally. The food is fantastic and the bar menu and offerings are even better than that. Be sure to check out the GIGANTIC bar wall with the library ladder! And weekend make-your-own Bloody Mary bar (WOW!!) If you're not already stuffed, try the Whiskey Cake (but bring a friend and get two spoons!)

Food was amazing. Loved the kids food made them feel so special. Service was okay. She just seemed a little flustered. No big deal just could have used a little more attention toward us.

The wine pours were very short for the cost of “full” pours the manager was nice enough to adjust our bills, but was a hassle to explain and convince that the pours seemed unfair. We left and went to another place and order glasses of wine with a much satisfying pour and the cost was 1-2 dollars cheaper than the cost for your cheapest “full” pour.

Great service from Hannah. She was attentive and laid back while we took up her table for a long time. Bar even made up a drink not on the menu (raspberry Martini) for a friend that doesn’t really drink other stuff. Really appreciate the extra effort.

The devil eggs are delicious and is a meal with a salad. The rotisserie chicken with kale was not good. Way too much kale and very very little chicken.

It was a great choice of restaurants. Eight high school friends class of ‘61 got together for a visit and lunch. Servers were outstanding. Also there to address any need. Loved it all. Thanks. Will be back.

Really underwhelming. The food is nothing to write home about. Best appetizer were the Duck wings. Service took forever! We were waiting for drinks, waiting for food, waiting for check. Spent over 2 hours in restaurant- waste of Sunday afternoon. Definitely disappointed and will not be returning.

We were seated fast. Had a nice waitress. The only problem was, after we got our food, we never saw her again. The waitress that had other tables saw our distress and she took care of our needs.

The food was terrific, but the salads could have had a little less dressing. The waiter was pleasant, but needed to be a little clearer when explaining items. Will come back and we expect things will only get better as restaurant staff gets more experience.

We have been regulars at this place for almost 2 years, visit a couple of weekends every month. Our checks are typically $80-100 for a lunch date.

Parking is always challenging, but this past Saturday it was absolutely impossible, due to fully a third of the spaces being used as a sparsely attended Farmers Market. On a Saturday. During tax free shopping weekend. Of course, it was the hottest weekend of the year to date so....

Impossible to park in the restaurant lot to visit the restaurant, had to park in an adjacent lot and walk to the restaurant. Did I mention it was 106 and sunny?

I saw at least a dozen cars drive in, look for parking, and drive away, just while I was looking for parking and walking to the restaurant. Had I not been meeting a friend who was already seated and drinking inside, I would have gone elsewhere as well. (She, too, had been forced to park elsewhere). Not sure why management’s brain isn’t engaged regarding this subject, but obviously it isn’t. How detrimental to business to take your customer’s parking spots and force them to walk from someone else’s lot in 106 heat in August in Texas. Downright stupid.

Further, they were very short staffed and service was abysmal(maybe staff couldn’t find a parking place either?). Took 15 minutes to have our drink order taken, and our meals had obviously been sitting out for a while before being brought to us. There have been other hiccups in service and food quality in recent weeks, but this visit was really unacceptable. Sad that things have gone so far downhill at this place, as it is a convenient half way spot for several friends. But, there are other choices, and this area is growing, so we likely will not be returning to this location again.

The overall experience was good. I loved my chicken and waffles. It was a bit loud but we were sitting next to a big table celebrating a birthday. Our waiter was good. It would've been nice if he came around to check on us more frequently but we understand how busy it can get on weekends. We would definitely go back though!

Always excellent for lunch, dinner or drinks. Excellent farm-to-table fare that is casual yet very carefully prepared. Hip, energetic servers. Don't miss out on the whiskey cake for dessert - it's outstanding.

This was my second visit and I tried some new menu items. Loved the warm goat cheese appetizer! The whiskey cake was delicious but I wished I had asked for it to be warmed. Also, great french fries, and the special soup which was a spicy pork with beans soup was amazing. Service was very good and the servers and hostess were friendly.

The food was soooooo good!! Our waitress Brittany was amazing! She kept a smile and it was contagious! Brittany always asked if we needed anything and we did think of something we did not have to hunt for her. That was refreshing!! The crowd was pleasant for a Sunday afternoon. I appreciate we weren't yelling to have a conversation sitting across from each other.
You have to try the fried green tomatoes!!

We are regulars to this location, and while the food and service remain top notch, we’ve noticed the noise level has really ramped up,in recent months, to the point where we can’t talk to each other anymore without shouting. This will,be a consideration for the next time, as places like Seasons 52 and others sport a more conversation friendly ambiance. Please consider turning the volume down about 3 clicks.
