Be prepared to be stuffed. Phenomenal variety. Must have a couple cinnamon rolls and a loaded waffle. You will spend $20+ so keep that in mind before you roll in. Parking is not cheap. $9 Vallet. Solid experience though.

We did not wait to go in. The wait at about 1:10 pm was over an hour. However it's the usual deal. Empty tables and of course customers waiting. The place was recommended. The music at reception was loud. You had to talk loud. I looked at the food as we went by and it did not appear to be... More

Excellent place. Lively atmosphere, outstanding service and great food. They have several dining areas, including inside and patio, and they have 2 bar areas. I sat at the bar since I was by myself, and had a great experience. They have a pretty good beer and wine selection, and also are very good at making craft cocktails. As far as... More

Wonderful spot for a small meal or a meet up with friends. It has a fabulous ambiance and can be fun to scout out an any given evening. If you're around for conferences at the Convention center, wonderful place to pop out to for a meal...just plan it earlier or later than that "lunch hour" as it tends to get... More

Food, drink, and service were all excellent, making for a convivial after-business-hours gathering. The appetizers our group shared were delicious -- especially the kale-and-bacon dip. And oh, my, those $5 cocktails during happy hour -- their Sazerac's my new go-to libation.

Staff was polite and helpful. Food was better than average. As the only thing that wasn't tasty was the fried pickled asparagus which we elected to try. Wine selection was great. Give it a try!

Just happened to stumble across this place walking back to our hotel and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was cozy in the bar off of the patio. Did not eat there the first time but came back the next day for Sunday brunch and they did not disappoint. Their brunch buffet was awesome. They had different stations with so much... More

Great location, friendly service, delicious food, and very clean (loved the lavender hand soap). Waiter even gave us some cornbread muffins to take with us! I will definitely be back to this place.

I took a client here for dinner and was very impressed. The place was packed, so that seems like it's always a good thing. We got seated relatively quickly, and the service and food were outstanding. Highly recommended!
