I truly think I have never had a better time at brunch in my whole life AND the food was flippin' amazing. We attended the 12 noon show of the Drag Brunch, arrived at 11:25 for cocktails and to choose a great seat. I suggest to sit high up over toward the street corner for best view. The fried french...

The music was really good and the performers were really quite talented. So we decided to go over, get a table, order more drinks (well we were on holidays and we were in Miami after... More

The service is great, the food is excellent and the environment is amazing. Nice shows, and is an obligatory stop on Ocean drive. The happy hours are very good as well..!! Go there to have some fun after beach, or before dinner.

Went to Sunday brunch with one of my girlfriends - we had an awesome time! The performers were amazing, super talented. If you would like to go watch the drag shows - you must make a reservation! It was a full house when we went. Organization was a little bit off, though we made a reservation the hostess did not... More

Brunchic on Sundays is incredible. The food was great (go for the empanadas) and the bottomless mimosas work a treat! The show was the best thing I have seen. The girls dancing is insane. I have never seen someone do the splits in the middle of the road after singing on top of a taxi!! The only bad bit was... More

They had a Caesar Salad, but no Garden Salad. However they were able to give us a Caesar with no dressing (vinaigrette on the side) with a couple tomatoes. Who doesn't have a Garden Salad? I ordered a BBQ burger and it was good. One of the sides was onion rings. I received two(2) small onion rings..?? My companions asked... More

When I found out I would be vising Miami Beach, I found this place on Groupon. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and how much fun it would be. We went for Saturday Brunch, finding out that it doesn't start until 2 - in which a drag show is performed. Drinks were super expensive - $60... More
