I AM VERY GLAD THAT I WAS OPEN TO THE MENU AT OUTSET. THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A WELL-CURATED MENU USING CAREFULLY CHOSEN INGREDIENTS. QUIET AMBIANCE WITH A DATE. I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO SOAK IT UP AND ENJOY A GREAT MEAL.

Delicious biscuits and deviled eggs. Also had the quinoa bowl and it was very flavorful. Service was a good balance of attentive without hovering.

Bummed that Willie Jane is closed. It was my favorite spot in Venice.

Delicious housemade authentically flaky biscuits, that could only be overshadowed by the knock-your-socks off housemade bacon jam! And to date, the JUICIEST fried chicken that came w big giant waffles drizzled in jalapeno maple sauce. The beignets were a bit too dense and yeasty for my taste but I will go back over and over until I have tasted everything on that menu - TWICE.

The food quality has gone down. I was unimpressed with the meal this time around.

Service was terrible. Waited was nice but overworked as he seemed to be the only one. We've been there before and really liked the food but not this time. It was so dark on the upper patio, we could barely see anyway. Oh well.

Service and Kitchen too slow. Food too expensive. Nice decor, pretty good food. Has good potential but don't go if you want to eat sooner than an hour after sitting down.

Saturday brunch on the outside patio was terrific. Delicious menu and very good wine or mimosa value. Very pleasant place to meet a friend or loved one at that time.

Bisquits were the best EVER! Love me some deviled eggs, but at $10 for 4 halves, pretty unremarkable. $6-7 maybe. $5 - All day! Shrimp and grits were as expected, very nice. Rib appetizer also very good. I had the Sea Bass special - Excellent! Great menu, great food. Would like to see more options on beer and wine by the glass. Menu is screaming for a big Zinfandel. A little pricey for the options. Come down 10-15% and this place will be here for a LONG time. We'll be back!

There was a fly in my drink and they still charged me for it. They made us wait a very long time to bring drinks and check. The food was good, but the service was subpar.

It's a great gem....always good food. Can get busy so sometimes you may wait but all in all I always go back and I am a PICKY person. So I would recommend this to anyone just make reservations.

This place is smart, well presented and friendly. Their food is unique and nicely prepared. We loved the shrimp and grits and the pork with apricots was a huge hit. Their staff are cheerful and efficient, and put up with our large party with grace and aplomb. We will be going back without the teenagers for a little alone time. It's that good.
