    I don’t know where to start: • Open Table didn’t indicate that there was a prix fixe menu for Mother’s Day, which it normally does, so we were surprised by a set menu with few options for $70pp (which didn’t include coffee). A cranberry juice (also not included) cost an extra $10. • We were charged for the mimosa we ordered while we waited for our table to be ready, only to find out that a mimosa was included in the prix fixe menu. They didn’t rectify this. • When we asked questions about the menu (normal things, like, “What do you recommend?”) the waiter responded with some truly bizarre answers. At one point he described the shrimp cocktail as “shrimp in a bowl with watered-down cocktail sauce.” I asked about an ingredient in the vegan option listed on the menu and he said “Hm, you know what, I have no idea!” and just shrugged. I had to literally ask him to go find out. • The food was straight up disgusting. Inedible! It was such a waste. Even the fruit was bad, like it had been sitting out for hours. • I don’t hate country music, but like other guests have noted, the music is just awful. I am begging them to reconsider the playlist. Overall it was such a disappointing, strange, and expensive experience.

    This is one of my favorite places for brunch, however was left extremely disappointed with the Mother’s Day brunch which was $70 pre fixed menu plus a 20% service fee. Not worth what we got or what they offered.

    I never post reviews but I have never had such a terrible experience. Waiting over an hour for our food with no one filling water or drinks or even mentioning that our food would be that long… horrible.

    The music was extremely loud considering we were outside. Also, consider a variety of music, only playing Country does not cater to everyone. Please.

    We had some of the best food we've had in a long time. Our server was fantastic and his suggestions were spot on. Our only complaint is the ambiance. I don't think we'd mind the open floor plan as much if we had a sizable party, as we saw they could easily accommodate. Since it was the 2 of us, it lacked a cozy feel. Otherwise, the food, decor, service were all outstanding!

    Liked the look, food was good, not great but service was in great need of help. Forgotten orders, extensive wait, dining partners served entree at different times. Better training is critical.
