Great food & brunch

Great food, but it gets packed for Sunday brunch and they don't take reservations so go early/late. If you're tempted to go to the Fairview location instead, don't, it's a cute location, but not the same quality. Lucille's in the museum district actually has better fried chicken.

We took an unexpected early happy hour /dinner arrival on a not so busy day and the food was still happening. The fried chicken finger appetizer and the fried chicken dinner was one of a kind and highly recommended. The daily special was the snapper ceviche which was outstanding and fresh as well as the pork sliders. YOU will not... More

This has to be one of my favorite spots in Houston. Its great for Sunday brunch or for starting out a night on the town. The Crème Brulee French Toast is heavenly and the fried chicken is always hot and fresh. I've never been disappointed and try to get there as often as possible. The staff is always friendly and...

Good bites and great wine. You can taste, buy a glass or a mixed case! Parking can be tricky! Plan ahead. Try the oysters! YUMM

Ate there a couple of times. Food is good but not much of it for the price. Also hate the idea you only have a table for so long. You can't sit and just drink with friends. Quit going.

We had Sunday brunch and the place was packed! Definitely make a reservation. The food was sinfully delicious. Our waitress wasn't very good, though. I understand they were busy, but my friend was without coffee for close to 20 minutes and she was no where to be found. Also, it was freezing in there! Bring a jacket!

We googled best brunches in Houston and this was one. We were not disappointed! Make reservations. It gets packed quickly. My husband asked the waitress for a recommendation and she suggested the J cakes and fried chicken wings Amazing! It's a cross between a pancake and corn bread. It was so yummy. I got the fried egg sandwich. I needed... More

This place has a great ambiance for a date or a smart casual get together. Great wine selections..but not to many options by the glass. Fried chicken and mashed potatoes was finger lickin' good. The infamous macaroni was stellar although the drunken bread wasn't all i hoped it would be...too much bread...to much cheese. The banana cheescake was interesting......banana and... More

Besides the extensive wine selection, the menu is awesome. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes was beyond delicious. Nightly wine and food specials are nice and the atmosphere very upbeat. Parking is a challenge and the place is small so be patient, it's worth the wait. Tip: sit at the bar if you like to watch food prep, it's fun... More

Was there last night for the first time with my wife at the Washington Ave location. It was busy so we ate at the bar and I must say the bartender was awesome. He was very knowledgeable on the wines and gave us some samples. Then we ordered and I must say I had the best fried chicken I ever... More
