Today marked our first indoor return visit since the height of the pandemic. We had an extremely enjoyable meal surpassed only by the excellent service of our server Christine. She was extremely efficient, very pleasant, and a pleasure to speak to. She said she was...basically self trained and wanted to make sure that diners had a wonderful experience, (Patrick---hold on to this gem.) It was a most satisfying experience with wonderful food and a totally excellent time.More

Wow! Food and service were both 10/10. Donya our waitress was very polite and her service was flawless. The catfish was out of this world. We're definitely coming back to try some peach cobbler.

Great service, easy and safe for carry out. I called ahead and ordered the Louisiana gumbo salmon with a side of mac n’ cheese. Was hot and ready by the time I got there - and so delicious!!!!

You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I love going and getting a bunch of sides! Collard greens, black eyed peas, grits, sweet potato muffins, mac and cheese, fried okra and slaw are just some of my favorites. And, the fried chicken...is on point!More

Terrible service. I ordered my food at 4:08pm was told order will be ready at 4:53pm it wasn’t. I called waiting outside at 5:12pm the lady told me they just found my ordered and it would be Another 15 minutes. I asked what do I...get for my wait and she said nothing. This is my last time coming here. They are rude and disrespectful.More

This is my absolute favorite southern food spot. I always make sure to stop by when I'm in town, and bring family and friends. The staff is so charming and I'm always seated quickly. I even stopped by for curbside pickup and the food was...pipin hot when I got home. Love B&C!More

So I was craving some corn-an-beans during this quar-an-tine if ya know what i mean, and this place really hit the spot. but in all seriousness, if you're looking for some authentic southern food, this place pretty much has it all. I'm in from Chicago,...staying at my parents place in Michigan, so its been a while since I had a good a restaurant meal. We did the curbside pickup option and it was quick and easy! definitely picking up some comfort food from here again before its time to go back to Chicago.More

I didn't try their green beans. However, it seemed as though everything was fresh.

I am not sure of any brunch time menu. I've only eaten there during the dinner hour. Not sure of any rates for groups. Sorry that I couldn't help more.
