The shrimp and grits were delicious!! Someone should be more mindful of newcomers. We stood at the entrance of the restaurant waiting to be seated and had no idea we were suppose to head upstairs for our reservations. We are definitely planning to come back!

Really delicious food - we both ordered the HQ platter, but I subbed grits for the mashed potatoes. By the end of my meal, the only thing remaining on my plate was the chicken bones!

The waiter wasn’t attentive , the table next to us got way better service. Probably due to the color of our skin. The eggs tasted very old and shortly after eating our entrees my friend got very sick. The place has great potential but too bad I didn’t get to experience it.

Service was less than average. Also you are placed on a strict 2 hour dining minimum, and will be asked to leave promptly at the 1 hour 55 minute mark. Service was lack luster and some what unpolished.

Excellent spot for comfort food and drinks, especially if you like chicken! Bartender can make you the BEST real NY whiskey sour. It’s a nice place to hang out in Old Town Alexandria.

We normally love their Sunday Brunch buffet, sad to hear it may never come back. But, their Family Brunch style is still fantastic! It’s around $30 for 2 starters, 1 salad (we subbed another starter), and 3 entrees. We also took advantage of the mimosas! Yum!!! We will definitely be back again and again!

We had a wonderful experience! The food was amazing! We started with the brussel sprouts - they were delicious!! He had the fried catfish, mashed potatoes, collard greens, and mac and cheese! I had the HQ special - fried chicken, collard greens and subbed the mashed potatoes for mac and cheese! YUMMY!! Our server was awesome too and the manger came by to check on us a few times as well. Absolutely awesome experience !

The food came out quickly, the wait staff were very friendly, and the food was delicious. I ordered the chicken and waffles and the amount of chicken that came with it was overwhelming! I took leftovers home and ate it over multiple meals -- a great value.
