The atmosphere is the real star here, not the food. The food is overpriced and below average. I went here for my birthday and was not impressed and really wished that I had gone elsewhere. Music was playing but not by the band but it did sound good. They looked like they were on break or either packing up to... More

I have visited a few times and each was a memorable event. But this weekend, my husband and I decided to check out brunch and could not have been more pleased. In addition to breakfast items - eggs, sausage, bacon, buscuits/gravy, french toast, and made to order omelettes, they also had lunch items - catfish, pt roast, mac and cheese,... More

The wife and I ate here today for the first time. She had the Chicken Fried Chicken and I had the Shrimp, Catfish, Grits, and Egg. In a word, fabulous! We are going to eat here some weekend when they have live music; soul, jazz.

Our large group was seated on time and then the food started rolling in. Our set limited menu DID include the famous waffle/chicken but I had the salmon; which was amazing. Our servers were pretty good and made sure to check on us regularly. No one was on the band stage but the DJ kept the music coming...a little too... More

This is a very nice place with decent atmosphere in a nice location. Since we arrived pretty early, there was no one on the stage performing, but we did get in on some pretty good happy hour deals. The happy hour included 1/2 price apps, so we ordered 4 of them! Calamari steaks, Chicken gizzards, Chicken wings and Pot Roast... More

This establishment sets itself up as 'soul food.' The ambiance is perfect, the decor is on point, but the cooking needs to get a bit sharper. There is a family run business two blocks away that sells soul food and is untouchable. Buttons would do well to get back to the basics and it will be a force to contend... More

The lunch menu was very reasonably priced with a nice variety of offerings. The service was very slow but friendly. I had the Chicken and Waffles with collard greens. The portions were very generous. The food was well prepared. My wife enjoyed her Grey Castle sliders.
