Came with a group of friends for Sunday Brunch! The food was amazing as usual! I have been here for dinner last year and it was delicious. We ordered the Fried Chicken & Waffles, Huevos Ranchero, Horchata French Toast, Shrimp & Grits, and Chicken Fried Pork Belly! We enjoyed all of it. The service was great and the entire staff was very friendly. I will be back for sure!!

The place was OK. Neither memorable in its flair or in its understated charm. The food seemed a little overpriced for what it was. Can't really understand what it's trying to do. It's neither a trendy fancy restaurant or a cool, laid-back watering hole.

I love this place. This was my second time there and it didn’t disappoint. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the drinks were amazing. I will be back and that’s a promise.

The food is excellent here. Pleasantly surprised. Drinks took a bit too long to be delivered after ordering. The patio is a triangular spit that jets out and is bordered by two streets - the sidewalks on either side are separated only by a hedge...it is not only noisy because of the cars going by (difficult to talk) - also it's a long communal table - the guy sitting next to us had a very long conversation on his phone not caring that it then became part of everyone elses experience.. sadly homeless people reach through the hedge asking for handouts - recommend sharing with them actually.. and perhaps asking customer to not have long conversation on their phones at the communal table..

Really enjoyed the vibe and energy at this restaurant. The food was good, and some of the dishes were outstanding. Price point was a bit high for low country food.

Second time here and serivce continued to be excellent and food was much better the second visit. Excellent catfish, mac n cheese and Punk Evan's cocktail. Avoid the hush puppies.

Interesting interior, great service, absolutely delicious food. Sides are a little on the pricey side but still - worth it.

I had a mixed time here. We arrived a little early for our reservation and there were several open tables but they said we had to wait. I hate that. Once seated we ordered drinks and they never came. The server came back and took our order for 4 different entree items..a salad, veggie, ribs and octopus. Within 5 minutes all of it showed up which was a little fast and made me think they are all just sitting there waiting to be handed out and not fresh cooked - still no drinks. He finally came by and said "oh, no drinks let me go check" and then came back and said the bar was backed up and it took 15 minutes before our drinks showed up - no apology and no "I'll give you a free plate of bread" or something. The ribs were cold. On the plus side the food was very tasty! But the major downside was that it was insanely loud. We have to shout to talk to each other. And as the evening went on it just got louder. Some people love that and I understand the fun party New Orleans vibe and think that is great. It was just too loud for me. So overall I won't go back but as I said the food was tasty!
