“Great Food and FUN !!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The place is great. The cocktails are very interesting. The food is excellent. The only downside (a small one) is that the entire room is loud due to the concrete walls. But still and fantastic place to enjoy time with friends and family

“The Art of Discord...”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

To drink we enjoyed, Southern Hospitality, a punch with Eagle Rare, grilled peach, cinnamon, charred white oak. An overall winner as a peaty drink with backbone and gumption.

As a tribute to Dionysus, we also delighted in an Avila's Heir, a margarita with Corralejo Reposado, serrano, mandarin, yuzu. A satisfying manifestation of acculturation.

The Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits with maple butter (two to an order) were distinguished flaky constitutions of once unattainable, incomparable treasures. Compulsively apply the maple butter to reward your soul.

Peach hand pies (two to an order) with salted caramel sauce were flaky, yet doughy but disproportionate in peach filling to pastry. We were charmed nonetheless.

The sticky bun with pecan and brown sugar served in a hot cast iron skillet was all that we imagined. There was a pool of melted brown sugar to decorate and liberally apply as necessary.

Blueberry Skillet Cake with vanilla maple syrup was a fail for me. Insipid and spongy, evoking indifference and disquieting emotions of disdain.

Truffle Honey Laced Fried Chicken served atop Kohlrabi Slaw. The chicken was assertively coated with an imprudent amount of batter which lacked a discernible flavor. The chicken steamed in its impervious vessel lending itself to succulence.

“A great discovery”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Recommended to us by a "local," MBPost did not disappoint. We got there late on a Saturday evening, so there was a bit of a wait. Busy, loud and casual. Don't go for a quiet romantic evening: it was perfect for a night out with friends!

Dishes were described as small and recommended to share around the table. They weren't all that small. We ended up ordering much more than we wanted! Go slow and order just a few at a time, you can keep adding on more. Everything was really good. It's on my "to return to" list.

“Affordable Elegance”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Hip, but not too hip. Trendy, but in a good way. Food is way off the hook. Affordable prices were the bonus. Not a fan of "shared" plates, and the valet is in desperate need of fixing, but none of this distracted from an overwhelming good experience.

“A great relaxing meal”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant is a relaxing, casual and friendly establishment with food to die for. Prices are extremely reasonable and staff are well versed in all the dishes on the menu. Definitely recommend the in-house ricotta and the bacon cheddar biscuits!
