The steak was wonderful with the cheddar butter. Popcorn on the tables is a great touch and the apple pit dutch oven dessert is the best dessert I've ever had. Will be coming back next time I am in town.

Loved this restaurant! Charming place with fabulous food. If we had been in town another night would have gone back. One of the best meals I've had while traveling since Far View in Mesa Verde.

My sister and I enjoyed a beautiful Sunday brunch here. I had read other reviews suggesting an early arrival to assure a quick seating. So we arrived about 20 minutes before opening. There was just one other couple ahead of us but by the time they were opened, the line was already fairly long. We enjoyed so much delicious food.... More

Very southern in that most things are fried. We had the chicken and waffles, it was good but nothing unique.

We had drinks and dinner. The service was wonderful and we were never rushed. The food was delicious. Popcorn before dinner added a nice touch.

A mimosa got us started and the chicken & waffles soon followed. Great food in a buzzing environment. We ate outside but inside was equally busy.

Been hearing that the line for the Sunday all you can eat brunch is L O N G. . . . But if you have the chance, I think it's worth the wait. The 2 times that I went, i went around 12:30-1:00pm and got on the wait list. Twice we were told the wait was 1-1.5 hours. (They close... More

Sunday brunch here is great. Not the typical breakfast foods. Oodles of choices. Get there early as it gets crowded.

The menu here is a bit trendy so be prepared for something a little different. Service was slow at every opportunity. And although my friend asked for the turkey sandwich without cheese, the server managed to forget the sandwich spread was also made of cheeses.

This is a true diamond of Austin. Very welcoming classy yet casual historic building. A full page drink menu with some fun twist on classic drinks as well as a variety of moonshine specials. Then there is the food. Wow. Everyone at our table was impressed with their choice. Traditional Southern food without being boring. Service was top notch!

Thank KDG G
