We waited over 30 minutes between our appetizer and main course. The waiter was entirely unapologetic for the delay and a manager never came by even after we asked about the status of our meal a couple of times.

It was shaded and had fans keeping it nice in cool in this Texas heat. I had a yummy Bellini and the hot chicken with biscuits for brunch. It was so good! My boyfriend devoured his chicken sandwich and fell in love with their Brussels sprouts. I loved the ambiance. Cute and perfect for a day or night date.

We sat on the patio, and the tables are so close together, that you can hear everyone else's conversation. I understand why it's like that, it was the only knock on the morning.

You could tell they had mass-produced the food in anticipation of the Easter brunch rush and just wanted to turn over tables, but for those prices, everything should be fresh. Care more about quality and experience than money. Ridiculous.

My son ordered the kids mac and cheese and it tasted terrible. We weren't going to send it back, but we all tried it and couldn't stomach it. We were told they put green Tabasco sauce in it. The waitress said it must have been in accident. I ordered the grilled cheese and Tomato soup. The soup was okay but I only ate about 1/3 of it and we didn't care for the grilled cheese. My husband liked the Chicken Fried Steak, which came with the Mashed Potatoes and green beans. My other son had the popcorn chicken, which was good, but nothing about the meal was great enough for the cost. For 4 of us and only one beer our tab was $75 plus tip. That included two kids meals and no appetizers. We probably wouldn't go back.

Our waiter was nice; however, he could have been a little bit more attentive; he didn't offer us desserts; after he saw we were finished eating, he took the empty plates away and came back with the check; however we weren't finished; we ordered a couple more cocktails; it's like we had to initiate food items; however the food was great and we can't wait to go back, but with a different waiter.

Only donwside was the girls at the front they need to work on their attitude.

This time, unfortunately, service was very slow and I had to ask for several things repeatedly. My Cobb salad was awful. Instead of using a sliced up chicken breast it came with chicken “nuggets” that were mostly breading. The cornbread was delicious and the Stodge burger was good. Unfortunately, the poor service made the whole lunch a bummer.

Tried to order the onion rings or the frito Misto- they were out of both at 1pm on a Saturday. I wish the waiter had mentioned that to us when we first sat down instead of waiting until we tried to order them. I moved and had not been there in 10 years and will not be a place I return when I go back to Dallas for visits. It used to be really good.

The food was all either too bland or too salty. The waiter was fine but it took ages to get our beers— which they weren’t busy when we arrived so I don’t know how it took that long. I had high hopes for this place since they had salt water taffy at the hostess stand, but that was no indicator. Truly, the only thing we liked was the beer. I will say they handled it well. I’m not one to complain, I’ll usually just eat it and think whatever, but I truly couldn’t eat any of this. My boyfriend complained and they comped our food, which was very nice.

Her beer suggestions for each of us, based on our answers to her questions were right on. We all enjoyed discovering a new label. The food was outstanding, my salmon was perfectly cooked and delish. The brussels sprouts were not what we had hoped, but the bread pudding more than made up for them. Yum! It was a perfect place for old friends who hadn’t been together in ages to dine and catch up.
