Impressed with online reservations, atmosphere and scan code menu. No 6' spacing and to move to another table involved a 20 minute wait even though there were many empty tables. Thank goodness for awesome wait staff.

The food however was absolutely horrible! We ordered the salmon appetizer w/chips. Both were extremely salty. Mac n cheese was watery and worse than boxed mac n cheese. Pork and brisket main dishes were both tasteless. Pork was rubbery with a strange texture. In an attempt to be upscale the pork dish was decorated with the strangest add ons but the flavors did not work well together.

The total cost of our dinner was ridiculously high for such small portions and tasteless and over salted food. It was by far the worst meal we've ever had. How this restaurant stays in business is beyond us.

We never, ever write reviews but feel obligated to inform others of what to expect when dining here.

We were afraid to try the whiskey cake since every thing prior had been so bad. Instead we decided to purchase desert at HEB.

The food is great as usual! Its a little disappointing when items that you get accustomed to are taken away. The mango habanero margarita and the onion did are signatures that should never be removed.

A little disappointed with the house made chips that came with my sandwich- they were a too greasy. Other than that, every thing was great.

We used this restaurant for a business meeting recently and the experience was great! We booked a reservation in advance, but were not able to really define our needs prior to arriving. The morning of the reservation the restaurant staff called to confirm and we were able to explain our needs. The team and manager were so very accommodating and we had a great time.

The hours posted showing this location opens at 10:00 am, however, did not open until 10:04. We were seated and it took another 5 mins or so for anyone to come to the table. There were only about 12 people in the whole place at this time of day. The waitress was very friendly and took time to visit with us; very personable. We ordered beverages and our food took awhile to arrive. Great mimosas! Unfortunately, my husbands breakfast was not hot and my egg breakfast was room temp. No condiments offered at the time the food was served. When asked by our server how the meal was we explained that three food was flavorful but not hot. She apologized and let the location manager know. The restaurant did offer to comp one of the meals. Our waitress treated us to whiskey cake, which was a wonderful surprise and much appreciated. We believe in second chances and will return.

We stopped in for a nice lunch and were not disappointed. All of our meals were great and the whiskey cake for dessert is outstanding. The only wrinkle in service is our drinks were not refilled timely.

Was seated as soon as we walked in, after 15 minutes of no service I asked a waiter passing by if someone could help our table. Finally 5 minutes later a waiter comes.. I wish it got better after that however it didn’t, the only great thing about the night was the food. No mention of the special occasion.. And last but not least I ordered a drink to go, it took longer than normal and it was half of a drink, the waiter told me to add ice at home.. again the food was amazing however I hesitate in returning as the customer service was at an all time low.
