    Good food & the Eat/Drink/HTX deal is a good one. Unfortunately an off night for service. Took 20 minutes to put our order in and another 20 minutes after the meal to get dessert. B&B is a good group of restaurants so we will give it another try soon. The manager was very nice & apologetic for the off service on this week night

    Third visit for brunch, food is good, drinks take a long time but service was awful again. Even the managers looked lost and did not know how to help the employees. Had to get our own silverware and napkins, no water refills and very small portions.

    The volume of the football games being shown at the bar was very loud for the small front indoor dining room where we were sat. It was too cold for my mom to sit outside or in the back dining room (according to the hostess). We felt like we were in a sports bar rather that a smart-casual restaurant. The noise-level did not dampen the overall pleasantness of our evening but just thought I'd mention it.

    Great first time experience! Parking in the area is always a challenge, but the local valet service is helpful. Inside seating was a bit tight and noisy. The service and the food more than made up for it. Can't wait to come back again.

    Good food. Nothing bad, nothing was the best I ever had. Service was friendly and attentive. I could see this being a great place to watch a ball game or live music in their outdoor patio. The bar seemed well stocked and they make an above average old fashioned, with the right luxardo cherries ... We went for brunch. Chicken lollipops and pig in a blanket were on par. The lobster roll and the burgers were well above average. The pork schnitzel was a little bland but the poached egg was as good a poached egg your gonna find. We will be back...

    The food was fantastic! The place was cute. There seemed to be some discord amongst the staff as all of the waiters also acted like hosts, so they did not like where the other staff would seat a group. They should figure that out behind the scenes, not in front of guests though. Once again, the food was amazing so we will probably be back at one point.

    I asked for my salmon to be prepared rare. It came out well done and dry. The egg on the open faced sandwich was hard and not runny at all. The side cauliflower arrived cold.

    This small pub has the basics but well prepared at reasonable prices. My complaints are this: they charge 21% “service fee” as tip and they charge around 3% more if you pay by CC.

    I enjoy a weekend brunch at BB Lemon when the weather is right to eat outside on their patio. The food is always good although I think it is a little pricey (not outrageous). A smash burger, one glass of wine and a Diet Coke and tip for the valet will run you near $55 to $60. Not crazy but not an inexpensive lunch. That said I’ve never had anything that is not yummy and I go back every other month or so.

    Place was okay, felt a little dirty for a Thursday night. Originally seated outdoors but mosquitoes took over and we asked to be moved indoors. Ordered the lollipop chicken and we were not impressed. It looked like the chef rushed it as the chicken was not even coated in the sauce. We rolled the chicken ourselves in the plate of sauce to slightly resemble what we were expecting. Dinner felt more so like bar quality food. However, the Banana pudding was addictive and we highly recommend.
