Well, I thought the food had the potential to be good. We didn’t order anything complex that required an executive chef’s approval. My chicken tacos were tasteless, sprouts and chicken wings were just okay, and our two peach whiskey drinks had no whiskey and all bad iced-tea. Only item that was good was the sweet potato fries. I was going to box the leftovers for a homeless person, but I opted out because they would’ve probably given me a bad review for the food coming out of this place. In addition to the bad food, my girlfriend said the bathroom was so trashed she couldn’t even use it. The waitress was very nice though. Definitely wont be going back.

Food was excellent. My only complaint would, there is no way to tell if you were making a reservation for inside or outside. I had made a reservation for 4 expecting to sit outside. Upon arrival I was informed that there were only tables for 2 or 6 people. Personally, I did not mind sitting inside, how ever 2 people in my group were uncomfortable with it. I would not have made a reservation knowing we would have been inside.

We made a reservation and they were over booked so we had to wait a half hour and when we sat down we where told that it would be at least 1 hour for the first course to come out. We just left and went next door and was served with in 20 minutes our first course. No regrets at all thank you Bru

Restaurant week, waited 40 minutes even with a reservation, then waited 20-30 minutes for a waitress to come by, just for them to tell us the wait for food would be an hour and a half.

I went for restaurant week. I would never go again. Horrible experience. At 7:30 reservations our main course didn’t come until 10:30. It took more than an hour between each course to receive any food. I don’t plan on returning

The food had no flavor. The macaroni and cheese was horrible. The only good thing was the shrimp and fried Oreos. There’s no harm to adding seasoning to food; even if it’s just a little salt and pepper.

I have been here before and usually enjoy it but this time it was like I was at a completely new restaurant. I ignored the bad reviews I saw stating wait times were long and service was bad because I had not experienced that at any of my prior visits. Unfortunately, those reviews were right and I waited a very long time for my food and when it came out my order was wrong and missing items. Our server was helpful and kind and tried her best to get our order fixed when she noticed it was wrong upon arrival so that was great. The food was not as good as it was previously and I felt like everything was super salty and dry but maybe they were just having a bad day. The drinks are good and the staff was friendly but I am not sure if I will be back.

We were seated at 1:00 for the Eagles game. By 2:00, we were still seated with no food and no drinks (not even water). Multiple requests to nearby servers during this time asking if they were our server was met with "no, I have these other tables". A request at the front desk was met with "I'm not sure what happened". Twice. Following a second semi-aggravated trip to the front desk, they managed to finally find us a server. Once we were finally able to put in for food and drinks, we'd been seated for an hour and a half. THEN 15 minutes after putting in our food we were told we were now in the in between menu would need to re-order. The manager did eventually stop by and apologize and comp the first round of drinks/some appetizers, but it really was way too little too late. I will not be returning.

Terrible service. Didn’t come to the table once - had to ask for water, silverware, napkins, etc ourselves. Was never checked on during the meal. We ordered an onion rings appetizer and it took over an hour to arrive. When the entrees came, they were cold. When we asked to put a nba game on the tv, we were given attitude.

This restaurant had poor service. My drink came out wrong, and when my server asked if it was ok, I let her know the issue. She said sorry and then quickly left without offering to correct it, and then I was charged fill price. It took an hour for our food to come out, and it was cold when it got to our table. I will not be back.

Had brunch. Ordered the shrimp and grits, hungry man breakfast, brisket eggs Benedict, and the corn bread French toast. Worth it: the shrimp and grits—DELICIOUS. Honorable mention: the fried chicken on the hungry man platter—they should do a chicken and waffles with that fried chicken: loved how they press the chicken so the fried to chicken ratio was pretty high. Plus the breading—is it corn flakes?—was super crunchy: well done. The rest, in particular the corn bread French toast, was mediocre. Service was good and quite accommodating. Got the bottomless bloody Marys and mimosas which cut down on cost tremendously. Overall a good deal.
