My husband and I went to lunch at Red Rooster during restaurant week. I ordered the kale salad as my appy and he got the fennel soup. My salad was very tasty as was his soup, which was almost like a chowder. He ordered the fried chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and red cabbage and I ordered the shrimp and grits. I had never eaten shrimp and grits before and thought it was delicious with just the right amount of seasoning and heat. He also enjoyed his chicken, and the portion was so large he took half of it home. When we ordered we were told that dessert was a devils food cupcake with raspberry buttercream, but when dessert came it was a white cake. This was fine for my husband, who prefers white cake, but a disappointment to me. But the restaurant was so nice - they brought me some chocolate mousse cake instead that was sooo good and did not charge us anything for the substitution. We had always wanted to try this restaurant and were very glad that we did.

This place does not disappoint. The vibe is amazing, and the food was delicious. Tried the chicken & waffle app and the shrimp & grits entree. Already planning to go back to try out brunch. Highly recommend going here for a wonderful evening great fare and cool music.

Each dish we had was more and more delicious. The staff tended to our table so well we felt like we were the only people at the restaurant. I will definitely go back and everyone should go

This was our first time at The Red Rooster. We enjoyed the experience and the food. The next time we go back, I will be more careful with the sauces. Unless you like very spicy food, the sauces are very hot and by the time I finished the meal I couldn't feel my lips. It is a fun, upbeat place and we would definitely return.

What an awesome brunch! Food, people, music, ambience. Let me put it this way: I never eat chicken skin but that Yard Bird was just too good!

The bar staff was phenomenal! Absolutely amazing. I had to wait for a friend so we lost our reservation but were seated anyway. (That was nice)

Bar experience-awesome drinks, great service and I had the delicious deviled eggs. One strange thing was that despite sitting at the bar and being served by the bar tenders two times I had an additional server asking me if I wanted a drink or food order.

The dining experience was rushed. Very very rushed. They clearly wanted to flip the table as soon as possible. I was so annoyed I didn’t even ask for the dessert menu. I wanted to say-why even offer the menu you’ve been dying to flip this table since we sat down. We did have children in our group, but they were quiet and extremely well behaved. (I honestly think it’s because we didn’t order a “drink” for them-to further pad our bill) Our server offered Shirley Temples multiple times to the girls sometimes directly to them even when we said no thanks they will have water.

The burger was good-the ribs were very fatty and over cooked, however the brussel sprouts and cornbread were amazing!
