The service was slow. From the reviews we read, we couldn't wait to try it out. The biscuts and gravy were tasteless.

The construction to the entryway might deter you from entering, but once inside I was rewarded with outstanding service. Jennivene waited on me and quickly guided me to the pork shank, greens, and brussel sprouts. The shank was super tender and loaded with flavor. The...More

Farm grits bowl was great, no wait time like other brunch spots within walking distance. Mimosas were $3 but had bucket option as well.

First and foremost the wait staff is sorely under trained. Our waiter as well as the others who served tables near by could not answer questions about the menu. Unacceptable and very frustrating. Our waiter could not even open a bottle of wine. The bartender...More
