We had lunch on the patio- great spot to enjoy people watching . Lunch was just oooookay - meal did not stand out hubby had cod sandwich- it was edible. ON the other’hand my meal fried catfish was disappointing- I had hope since it was their Friday special it was gonna be “done right” but nooo it was heavily breaded - fried tooo fast & under cooked.

Mgr was great offered to replace, substitute w/another menu item. In the end he did not charge us for meal. Overall we enjoyed the atmosphere & service we will definitely give them another try - nobody is perfect we all have an off day.

Thank you for making my Not-DragonCon special! We go here every year for the Dragon Con parade, and I thought it would be a treat to kick off the virtual madness. Thank you so much for your service, and I hope to see you next year!

Great downtown location with good food and ambience. The deviled egg and pimiento cheese appetizer is a nice touch - and yummy! We were there for lunch and were able to sit "safely" outside. Only issue was that food took awhile and could have been hotter. But all very tasty and everyone very nice.

Went here for a small birthday dinner. The service was great. Richard, was attentive, patient and super pleasant. The food was delicious, we ordered Rib and Chicken plates. Like anything in this area, you have to find parking, so prep yourself. I would definitely recommend. We had a fantastic time!

The entrees were solid. But we waited 50 minutes for our drink order. And the appetizers and salad was sub par to average. It’s a good spot in the city if you need walking distance and a good atmosphere. But service and food lack considerably for what you receive.

Overall so disappointing! Our server responded to what are the vegan options - salad or any of the veggie sides. One of folks asked about a burger and was told that they don’t have burgers. Yet several burgers were being served on the bar side. He brought out the wrong beer and wrong entree. When asked how long for the right one he said 20-30 minutes. She was essentially forced to eat the fried chicken. The veggie sides were unseasoned and not even warm! Boo White Oak!

Was in town for a Cheersport event. Had four 7 year old's with our group and the staff went out of the way to accommodate us and the children. The food was excellent and really liked the ambiance. Our server was great and made great recommendations off the menu. The wine and bourbon list were extensive and could find something in all price ranges. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

After being seated, I was disappointed by not being greeted by our server. I watched another couple sit and begin to order with their server after us. Our wait was about 10 minutes and it was unnecessary because it wasn't overly busy... I went back to the host to question why no one had come to our table. From that point things got much better. The appetizers were ok, not impressed with the deviled eggs at all but the Beignets were excellent! Entrees were pretty good. I spent what I expected but the overall experience fell a little short.
