    Broccoli scramble was good, fries very good, was mostly empty but one loud table - when restaurant is filled, it must be very loud. It was a good experience mostly but a bit expensive. I liked the wall sculptures.

    I think the value of the unlimited brunch was good however the food was not that great. I’ll start with the waffles I’m not sure what batter was used but it did not have any flavor even with the butter and that will essentially be the story of the meal. We then ordered the fish and grits and left a gritty texture and bad after taste. Maybe adding a little broth into the grits would’ve helped and we weren’t a fan of the cornmeal flour batter. Cornmeal is one of those things you either get right or don’t. Positives my girlfriend really enjoyed the omelet and i enjoyed the slider. I would like to mention that service was great but the food was not the star of the show as anticipated. Also it would be nice to have your own pitcher at the table instead of waiting 15-20 minutes for a refill. Overall i do not think we will comeback because of those small things but we left leaving that we at least got better value rather than ordering a la carte and not being able to try other things.

    The omelet and sliders were amazing. I was disappointed that their juices at $4, were bottled and not fresh, but not even great quality. The strawberry shortcake was all store bought pound cake and canned strawberries. Nothing was made or fresh. Overall, did not live up to the hype. Disappointing.

    Drinks and appetizers were good, all four of our entrees weren’t very good. Tasted like they cheaped out on the ingredients. Definitely not worth $50 for a the steak. Service felt rushed.

    Food was not good. Wife ordered the ribs , just okay, for $38 they should have been outstanding. We had ordered a starter, was brought with the meal. The chicken on the dish I ordered was good enough the sides we gross and not warm. The server had the entire section and was way over worked. Very disappointed in the food and service. Old fashioned ( drink # 3) was good.

    Our waiter took our order and then spent the rest of the time attempting to calculate something or other a few feet away but completely ignoring us. We were served our meals by someone else and other than the ribs the portions were very small for the price. We asked repeatedly for one of the drinks we ordered before the food (diet coke) and it eventually showed up (again not from our waiter) after the meals were mostly finished. No one ever asked how we were doing or about the meals. We then ordered coffees from another server or the hostess and at that point our original waiter approached with the bill. I politely let him know that we were waiting on our coffees so he took the bill and left. Overall, it was very disappointing and we wanted to like the place but it just didn't work out.

    This was a disappointing Sunday brunch experience. The waiter aggressively pushed the all-you-can-eat/drink options, neither of which our party was interested in. We should have for drinks because that was the last time he asked if we wanted another round. Timing was terrible. We each ordered an entree, and I asked for a side of bacon. The bacon came first, and then we had to wait 10 minutes for ONE of the entrees to follow. My entree came 10 minutes later (no syrup for the French toast, so I had to wait for the waiter to come back and then wait for him to come back). Fifteen minutes later, we were still waiting for the final entree to come. It didn’t as the kitchen never got the order. When the chicken and waffles finally came, it was half a waffle and a small piece of chicken. Our friend was patient and didn’t question it. After another 10 minutes or so, her full order arrived. We had waited for her, so of course everything was cold. I’ve been more forgiving during COVID, but other nearby tables appeared to be properly tended to by other waiters. There were no apologies offered throughout, no offers for another drink or anything while we waited. There were plenty of nearby dining options, and we won’t be returning.

    We had a reservation for 8.30 pm and when we were already seated and had order the starter we were told the kitchen (and restaurant) was closing 9 pm. If you close at 9, you should not take reservations at 8.30 (or at least they should notify this to the client). It’s common sense. The Mac and cheese were amazing.

    I ate here a couple years ago and loved it but unfortunately it wasn’t the same. Lots of ingredients missing on the food that was delivered to our table that were listed on the menu. The food lacked flavor and The tables were pretty banged up and needed replaced or repaired. Overall the food quality and restaurant ambiance has taken a dip since my last visit there. Not a bad experience but not worth a bill over $100 for a slightly disappointing meal.

    It was busy for Mother’s Day brunch. Nice and friendly staff despite how busy they were. Tried their best to be on top of thinks like refilling your beverage or replacing cutlery removed. Liked they had omelette bar and waffle bar which I can’t believe was included in the price. Great idea for family with kids. Food delish for the most part. Negative comment was the rockfish entree. My husband had a bone in his and I found the fish overcooked (it was chewy). Other than that the appetizers, salad and dessert was delicious. Omelette was tasty and my daughter liked the waffle with strawberries and bananas. Recommendation is to have more than one omelette station. The poor guy was overwhelmed and it took me and other patrons close to an hour to get their made to order omelette. I did not like that after it was made it sat on a side table where maskless people are peering over cooked omelette to see if their order was ready. I would def go back though and try regular dinner.

    Went for Mother’s Day brunch, had a great experience, not too crowded, or loud – very attentive service. From the apps to dessert everything was very tasty, the only item to discuss might be how long the omelette bar took, they had only one server at that station and he was in the weeds! Definitely worth trying

    Yes I would recommended just not on a holiday. It would’ve been nice to know that on Mother’s Day they would have a different menu. The price was more expensive and the options were not good. The only thing that was good was the omelette and waffle bar. It was like they tried to go over board serving way too fancy food and it was not flavorful at all. It also would’ve been nice to know that on top of the increase in the meal, it was $25 for unlimited mimosas, which is normally included. I ranted and raved to my family about this place. I was extremely disappointed at their Mother’s Day Brunch. I’m not going to give up on them but I will be sure to ask questions before each visit.

    The Sunday brunch at Teddy & The Bully Bar offered a bottomless variety of food and bottomless Bloody Mary and Mamosa drinks. Guests also have the option to order a la carte, which I did. I was disappointed that there were hardly any options for vegans: no milk alternatives for coffee and no vegan cheeses for omelettes or other dishes served with cheese. Finally, the noise level made it difficult to clearly hear others at the table.

    Our food was a disappointment. My piece of salmon was about 5” long and 2” wide. Tiny. It was prepared well but the risotto and broccoli purée served with it were cold. Dessert - supposedly strawberry shortcake was very small and disappointing.
