I made a reservation for Saturday morning brunch was was seated quickly by a lovely lady. My sister and I opted to sit outside as it was the first real spring day and, frankly, it was a little loud inside. The interior decor is trendy in a way that an out of touch person with an oversized wallet and something to prove believes to be trendy. Very much lacking in class. No umbrellas on the patio, but we were seated off to the side which was nice except for my sister's direct view into the ladies room.
The whole meal took us over an hour, a ridiculous amount of time for two hungry girls. We sat for 15 minutes before we were greeted and brought water. We sat for another 20 minutes before the check was brought and my credit card returned returned. I've been a sever for years at dives and at 3 Michelin star places, Rule #1 is always great and water the table within a minute (really, 30 seconds) of their sitting down. Rule #2 never make the guest wait when it comes time to pay. Our server mumbled so quietly, we really couldn't understand anything that was said (thought the parts I did catch were just excuses. Seems as though three tables were too much for him to handle on his own). Prioritizing tables was a serious weak point and something I noticed seemed to be a weakness for all of the servers outside. Seems as though none of them had been trained in how to properly bus a table either. At one point, he approached our table to remove our plates, paused, and then mumbled "I'll have to get a busser for this." We were two people with three plates. Two of those plates were stackable. The busser, for the record, was busy greeting his friends and it took our server two trips to remove the three plates from our table. This ranked among the worst service I have ever received.
The food was fine. Not bad, but not memorable and certainly not something I would try again. My sister had the Eggs Chesapeake and while the crab meat was on point, the hollandaise was flavorless and the poached eggs far too over cooked (only one ran when the very, very center was pierced). I had the biscuits and gravy which was fine (and just one biscuit). Not great, but certainly not bad or inedible. Just fine. The sausage patties were dry and places and overly greasy. We shared an order of duck fat fries which had an excellent crunch and crisp without being greasy. They lacked any indication of having been fried with duck fat. I suspect only a small amount of duck fat had been added to their regular frying oil. They were served with ketchup and another dipping sauce that tasted oddly like potato salad.
