We had a party of 8 for this dining experience and we were really thankful they seated us near the kitchen where the atmosphere is energetic and lively.
We opted for a family style meal so we could try many items since only a few of us had dined there previously. The sausage "For the Table" is the best sampler item. We also had the butcher's "For the Table" but nothing could compare to the sausage. We also shared the mussels (fantastic), swordfish (great), lobster grilled cheese (meh - lots of bread), pork chop (the size of a phone book), quail (a little too gamey for me), grits (delicious), greens (got raves from our vegan at the table), cauliflower (yum!), fried green tomatoes (heaven), cornbread (order multiples), stuffed jalapenos (not sure about these), BBQ almonds (good for munchies) and wedge salad (very good).
Drinks were great (I'd recommend the "Twinkle" if you like bubbly or the kir royale) and wine/bourbon was good. We shared dessert (banana pudding, grasshopper pie, s'mores and the chocolate parfait). My favorite was the grasshopper pie by a long shot, but everyone found something they loved.
Service was exceptional and with this size of group, we were especially pleased. We weren't rushed and we even got a nice photo out of the experience. We will definitely return and absolutely would recommend B&B to others. Just be sure you make a reservation ahead of time.
My only complaint: I wasn't pleased at all to find my vehicle unlocked when I went out to the parking lot that evening. The valet had parked it but since we stayed until 10pm or so, the host just holds your keys for you. Thankfully I had not left anything inside, but still.
