This restaurant is rustic and swanky. It has a down to earth vibe, with very friendly employees. Taria was our server, and she is the sweetest server you can find! she was extremely helpful and patient with us, and made our evening that much more enjoyable!
The food was fabulous! I had the country fried pork steak, which was incredible! My husband and daughter shared a full rack of the baby back ribs, and of course, I had to try! So glad I did because they were just as delicious!
As we were leaving, it came to our attention that this is a sister restaurant of the Commissary, which we ate at the night before! That explains the similarity in greens, the great food, and the high-class staff.
If you have the trip advisor app downloaded on your phone, you can make a reservation right from it, which is very convenient!
Will definitely return!

After hearing so many good things about this place we decided to give it a try. We booked a table through open table for a Saturday brunch.
We had the little pig. It's a big plate with different things: salumi, Serrano ham, mushrooms, pate, olives, olive oil and herbs spread, bread... It's good for sharing. Very tasty, nice mix of flavors.
We also shared the pulled pork Benedict. It was good.
Our server, Jesse, was very nice.
Overall I recommend it.

A buddy and i arrived right before brunch ended and HH began on a Saturday. The bartender, Kyle, was great. He had many recommendations about food, got our brunch order in just in time and a great idea for drinks. The bourbon flight was a fantastic way to improve any Saturday and Kyle was knowledgeable about everything we were drinking. The HH menu when the dining room closes is a bit small but represents some good options. The full bar is just that and the fod was fantastic. The ham and biscuits were very tasty and went well with my chorizo and shrimp hash. All in all, a great stop on 4th St, especially when Kyle is working!

Most wonderful dining experience this evening. Tender, savory, cracklin', mouthwatering variations on a pig! Took a chance on the cheeks and crispy sprouts, sampled the belly and leftovers (Pennsylvania, take note of this establishment's scrapple), and found myself in love with the entire PIG! Thank you Cherie for guiding us through the menu and your attentiveness was much appreciated.

Came here with some friends who were visiting in town. Who were looking for a different dining experience. Loved, loved, LOVED, every minute of our meal. They had a great selection of $26 bottle wine which is a STEAL for anybody who is familiar with the 14th street dining scene. We ordered up a feast based on the excellent recommendations of our waitress Diana. We started with the sausage board ( YUM!) and then we devoured the bacon wrapped apples which were warm and delicous its almost like apple sauce wrapped in bacon, the papperdelle pasta which was rich and delicious, the pig tails ( SPICEY), and the face bacon which wasn't too fatty and prepared in a way i'd never seen before. It tasted like Pork Belly finally done right. They recomend 2-3 small plates per person but with the sausage board being such a heavy appetizer you would probably be fine with 2 plates per person. For dessert we dove into the sticky toffee pudding which the waitress said was their most popular dessert and I can see why! Warm toffee drizzled heaven with a shot of bourbon to boot! The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Diana was super friendly and you could tell she genuinely loved the food she was recommending. She never steered us wrong in our meal once! Overall, I'll be back that's for sure but the food is really heavy so i'll save this as more of a special occasion spot rather then putting it in my regular rotation.
