Some of the best brunch I've ever had. A great variety of southern comfort food and some nice surprises. The food stations are all over the large restaurant, which has a large outdoor patio, separate bar and the main restaurant area. All the food here is with bit of a twist. Scrambled eggs with chorizo and cornflake fried chicken for... More

This place is HUGE! And every section looks very cool. We opted for the downstairs bar with fireplace and outdoor seating. The Moonshine goes down smooth and packs a punch - and I'm writing this as a martini gal. The food was excellent, the service was super friendly. Thumbs up!

If you are downtown, this is a fun place with great outdoor seating. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is ok. On this trip, I was on my own alone. I ordered an Old Fashioned, which was just barely passable. Their Chicken and Waffles were good - what's not to like about fried chicken and maple... More

I was here for a friend's work party, so we had buffet style appetizers and an open bar (aka not your usual restaurant experience). That being said, this place is lovely. The patio is beautiful, the drinks were great, the food was delicious, and the service was good. Would love to go back and actually eat a meal here.

Our hostess told us it would be a 30 minute wait but it only took 10, even with the SXSW crowd. It was perfect weather to sit on the beautiful patio. Both the hostess and waitress were very kind and helpful. They provide free popcorn which was perfect because it did not fill me up too much before our amazing... More

Popped in for brunch while at SXSW last week and was very happy I did. The variety of food was fantastic -- lots of local fare including cheese grits, spicy sausage, and mac and cheese, plus all the expected dishes like eggs and bacon. Yum! Can't wait to go back.

My group of 6 were seated on a busy SXSW night in 30 minutes. Nice to sit outside on their patio with a drink and wait. Our server Jasmine was fantastic!! Everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly. Would definitely recommend!!

This place was great! I loved the popcorn at the tables, a nice change from the regular bread og nacho chips. I was recommended the baby back ribs by my company, and they were good. But the portion was huge, almost ridiculous. I would have preferred half the portion, and another side (more vegetables!) instead. We were given complementary cornbread... More

I have heard many great things about this place and decided to give it a shot. Seems every time we try and go for brunch it's packed so we made the choice to try dinner. The atmosphere is fun and cozy. They bring you water in mason jars with the good ice (Texans know about the "good ice") and you... More
