                                Great food and service! Parking lot around the corne. While the brunch menu isn't massive, that's a good thing! Something for everyone. We had the French toast, wings and waffles and something else. Lol. Everyone enjoyed their meal!

                                Tables cramped together. Burger was barely booked despite asking for it to be done medium well. Left and got my coke for free.

                                It was our Anniversary and we had made reservations for Outdoor Seating (for a more intimate feel from the high vibe at the bar - which is cool, but not what we were going for). Ended up being seated SMACK DABB in the middle of chaos. Also, had a party of 5 walk in (no reservations) and get seated in a corner for two that they grab extra chairs for, while they seemed lost at where they were going to sit us…. Our waitress was AMAZING and sensed our vibe and did everything she could to give us a better experience but my husband’s chicken was undercooked and my Salmon dish left much to be desired! It was a completely different menu than what is on OPEN TABLE. A complete disappointment- but kudos to our waitress who tried her best to be a light!

                                Loved the patio. Hope you can install noise abatement feature as conversations in a full restaurant make it impossible to hear. People have a better time when they are able to converse and hear others at their own table.

                                Brunch with friends. Drinks were trash. Different garnishes, one all vodka, one all mixer. Steak and egg hash may very well come out of a soup can. It’s stewed meat and potatoes sitting in broth with an egg tossed on top. Not going back.

                                First time here and I really enjoyed it. I had the brioche French Toast with a side of bacon. Both were excellent (you can't put a price on thick cut, chewy and spicy bacon - just the way I like it!). I loved that their mimosas and bloodys have refills for $1 and $2, respectively. The service was excellent, I felt attended to but never rushed. And the music (I guess I'd describe as 70s R&B) was superb and not too loud.

                                Fabulous food, staff was very attentive, quick, friendly. Bustling, busy so not a quiet date night but fun. Only sore spot was service fee attached to bill which we were told we needed to tip on top of.

                                The Sunday brunch menu was very good. The power salad was excellent and also the avocado toast and omlets. The noise level was a bit high, but a great place to meet friends. Location is good and plenty of parking nearby. They also validate structure parking.

                                Food was great, drinks were ok, service was poor. We had been there for 45 minutes before we were able to order our entrees, and it took us waving down our server to do that - at which point to he told us to “hold on” while he continued to serve the 6 top he was focusing his time on.

                                Restaurant staff are great!! Angie at the bar, Norris and his gray service, hostess and welcoming attitude, and the manager holding everything down. Everyone is so very friendly and professional. Cool vibe within also.

                                The waitress was very friendly. The hostess, not so much. Food was okay.

                                We really enjoyed ourselves, as we’ve not dined out much in the past 2 years. Our server was excellent & our food was very good.
