Low Country Food with White Table Service. Get the Grits!

Hattie's reminds me of eating at some nice, small restaurants in the back streets of New Orleans and on the square in Oxford, Mississippi. Good southern food (manageable portions), nicely plated and with served with a smile. Although Bishop Arts doesn't generally require dressing up, you'll want... read more

Good southern food (manageable portions), nicely plated and with served with a smile. Although Bishop Arts doesn't generally require dressing up, you'll want to wear a nice shirt and dress slacks. It's just a respectable thing... More

I visited with three friends and each of us chose a different menu selection. All of us raved about our choices. Mine was the fried green tomato sandwich with bacon and pimento. It was a very thick sandwich that also included avocado...delicious. One of my table mates had a "special of the day" tenderloin on top of a cheese grit... More

It was the first time for both of us celebrating the birthday of one. We chose a weekday lunch as it was the best option for us. We were there a bit early and were escorted in a few minutes before the 11:30 opening hour, and seated right away. It is simply elegant, with an interesting menu and very good... More

Our entire dining event was 5 start. From our initial greeting by none other than the owner himself, to the excellent service, clear clean atmosphere and great food, this was a truly pleasant experience! Foods that were obviously made from scratch to real key lime pie (I'm from Key West), my taste buds tingled with delight. Want to impress your... More

Older building with bathroom style tile floors very sterile environment.. if it's crowded (usually) or if there is a party at one end of the room..noise level is extremely loud. Almost as if your in the kitchen cooking. Chef's prepare the food very well, some modern choices. Small portions, chef creations of ego excellence. Overall experience is stuffy, not that... More

A group of 4 had lunch at Hattie's earlier this week. It was buzzing! Lively atmosphere, but quite loud. Wouldn't recommend for conversation and "catching up", which is what we were there to do.....BUT the food and the service were superb! 2 of us had the Fried Chicken Salad, another the Shrimp and Grits and the 4th enjoyed the Pulled...

Came here as part of a business trip. Very courteous staff delivering top notch food. Really enjoyed it and would recommend. The catfish was great and a colleague had the crab cakes which looked even better!

It was a great place to go with work colleagues but I would go back with girl friends or a dinner with my husband. Excellent and interesting drink menu. FABULOUS food. Very coincidentally, seven people ordered seven different entrees and all were 100% satisfied. We all then started sharing and all of us agreed that each entree was equally good.... More

Our first time in Dallas. We wanted to have a nice dinner. This place is in the Bishop neighborhood, a few blocks of cool stores/restaurants/pubs. Very nice inside, understated by sharp decor. Service was perfect (thanks Greg). The food is kind of Southern fusion. Started off with a well-made Salty Dog. Had the fried green tomatoes, oysters, and prosciutto-wrapped figs... More

Love this place. Very charming new american/southern food spot. A friend of mine arranged to have my baby shower here, and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. The food is terrific as well.
