Was a bit underwhelming. It was more like a deconstructed rancheros. You had to put together. The pork belly was not very seasoned, tasted more like saltless bacon. And that’s ok. It was probably a healthy plate. The mimosa was good and came in a wine glass so it was a good amount. Overall the experience was a nice one. Nice atmosphere. I would go again but not to get the rancheros. The shrimp and grits and the zero burger are more delicious and always a good choice.

The waitress know to communicate though writing , pointing @ the menu to ask what we want for the sides. Good attitude and friendly. We leave a good tip for her kindness !

The waitress was sweet and provided standard customer service, nothing really stood out. A more energetic/fun staff would liven up the vibe. For the brunch time period, the music seemed a bit too loud, but i would imagine it would be more appropriate for an evening setting. Overall, we enjoyed our food, cleanliness, appearance, and diversity of the menu. We look forward to coming back!

I wasn’t sure if I was to cut the Avacado toast or pick it up and eat it. The cheddar grits were great I wish there would have been a little more in the cup.

The three of us shared the baked brie and Brussels sprouts as apps and both were great. We got two of the wagyu burgers and one short ribs for dinner. Everything tasted great. The only ding is that our burgers were a little over done but still good. The cocktails and service were very good as well.

I also had the special fried chicken sandwich with french toast. It was a sweet and crunchy celebration of flavor. My husband had the hailbut which he enjoyed. I thought everything was priced fairly. If you went to a larger city like Philly or NYC, you'd be paying way more for this quality of food.

I appreciated the information we learned about the different beers and the history. I only wish that we were able to drive how long we stayed. We had finished our courses faster than other tables but all tables were served at the same time, instead of when they were ready for the next course. Ended up being there for almost 3 hours and we were expecting to be there about half that time. But overall, loved it and will be back :)

I had the French toast fried chicken sandwich, a limited time meal. Absolutely worth it! The mimosas were top notch. My friends and I loved it. Needless to say, I think we found our new brunch spot!
