Food and desserts were just average, however the Pork Belly and grits were our favorite. The hot food, kept running out, and the refills took a lot of time. The Bloody Mary so spicy but never tasted or felt any vodka . Quite disappointed 😔

Not recommended. Went several times. Disappointing food. Had spicy fried chicken. Nice and crunchy. Breast was a bit dry. Flavorless. No spice, nothing. Had “pot roast”. This was a hunk of dry beef, crunchy root veggies (carrot, turnip? Onion), and a smothering of generic super...More

Avocado toast appetizer was outstanding. Good cocktails. My wife liked her salmon, and my macaroni and cheese was fine. No room for dessert. Perhaps a little pricey. $80 before tip. Good service.More
