The black-eyed pea hummus was delicious and the shrimp and grits were the BEST I’ve ever had.

Watched a table get up and leave because they could not find anything they liked on the menu. One of our guest also had trouble finding something on the menu and ended up just ordering sides. Glad I tried it but I would not go back.
Look at the menu before you go.

A couple of items on the menu were not available. Was told the ingredients were not in season. A bummer because I was looking forward to what I wanted to order instanced were lobster not in season and no grapefruit juice. I’ve been here several times; always customer centric; just a let down on the menu.

Like watching your team shoot the game winning shot and it rolls out at the end.
The service is terrible. We arrived at 815 and got our table. Our food and appetizers did not arrive until 925. There is a lot of potential but no one is paying attention to the details. I could not stop staring at the crooked and uncentered television on the wall. Our server did his best but the owner and kitchen staff really let him down

Enjoyed the pre event meal. Location was convenient and parking was easy. We got out in plenty of time to go see our show. Food was okay, but not what I expected given we have been to Breakfast club many times. I liked the small dishes but my husband did not care for the entree. With the number of restaurant options in Houston and the immediate area we probably will not return. Service was good.

I will certainly come back for dinner. I came for lunch on Thursday. It wasn’t crowded, the waiter was attentive and the chef brought our food out. I enjoyed the ambiance and the presentation of the food. It was seasoned but the oxtails were a bit fatty. Overall, I enjoyed the restaurant and the group I was with enjoyed their food and the ambiance.

The food was great and the waiter provided some good recommendations for food and cocktails. The riblets were tasty and seasoned perfectly, but the collard green purses were the best taste of the night for me. Will definitely visit again when I’m back in the area.

Refined southern food better than, dare I say it, ya mamas. Service was eager.but less than refined though they try hard to please. Cocktails were crafted—recommend: the Manhattan. Glass walls make for an excellent view of the emerging east downtown scene.

This was our first time there, and I was very impressed. Food was extremely creative and tasty, the waitress had a great knowledge of which of the small plates worked well together, and the atmosphere was nice without being too fancy. And try the bread pudding for dessert - oh my.....

Everything was great we would defiantly visit again. The server was attentive, the food was Delicious. We tried the fried okra, johnny cakes, fish, macaroni and cheese and the collard greens. They were all great. I particularly liked the greens, mac& cheese and the johnny cakes... Yummy. They also had a live band and they were terrific and we really enjoyed listening to them while we ate. two thumbs up!

Was underwhelmed by the food. Needed a little more flavor. Our waiter Torrence was great, the mimosas were perfect. Also, they should let patrons know about the parking and the best place to park. Too much of a hassle.

Great food. Pleasant server though not very attentive to smaller needs like providing a serving fork for the appetizer or refreshing our water. Entrées took FOREVER to come and were served separately, so we still ended up waiting before digging in. Despite that, food was delicious.
