I’ve been waiting to try this place for years and was disappointed. The food was just ok. While the chicken was good, it wasn’t great. The red velvet waffles were amazing but it wasn’t worth the money. I’ve had better for less and was disappointed....More

Recommended by my date for our first outing. Great food and service but a little noisy group next to us celebrating a birthday and encroaching on our seating space. But that didn't spoil our date. Looking forward to dinner.

I had passed this place many times and decided to walk in for brunch. Mediocre food experience though we didn’t have the red velvet pancakes. High priced for it as well. Servers were very nice.More

While it's great that our friendly staff left a good impression on you, Theresa, I wish our food could have hit those same high marks. In addition to the cost that comes along with using premium ingredients in our dishes, the prices listed on our...More
