    Everything was great. Service was amazing. Also, they had a DJ which he was great. I suggest a reservation (we had one) because we did see people waiting. Portions are a little small for the price 2 crab cakes for about $35.

    Had reservations for 6:30pm didn’t get seated until 7:18pm with no apology or anything. The food was awesome just wish the service matched. It just plays into the stereotype that blacks and black owned businesses will never do anything on time or right and it is just sad because the food it great the concept is dope the execution is poor.

    The vibe was everything! We had a party of 5 and the food didn’t disappoint! I wish I knew my waitress name but she was a good server as well. We had a very good time celebrating my dads birthday! FYI… The dress code online needs to be updated. We saw people wearing sneakers and ladies wearing scrubs after their shift. Overall no complaints

    Overall we had a nice experience. My Blackened Fish & Grits was returned due to it was too salty to consume. Cut it short because music was EXTREMELY TOO LOUD. We couldn't hear each other talk and had to keep repeating ourselves to our waitress Marla. She was a pure sweetheart and gave some good recommendations. I just hate that I couldn't eat my entrée. Will try them out again.

    Prices were higher than expected. Dress code was not enforced. Price of food does not meet the ambiance of restaurant. Steakhouse prices for a regular restaurant. Drinks overpriced. Rest could of been cleaner.

    The food was good but my pork chops were a little heavy with the seasoning. I don't really like that none of the entrées come with sides you have to buy separately. And $11 minimum for each side is a tad bit ridiculous to me. They were good, but honestly they didn't taste any better than what I could do myself at home. The live band was a nice touch though.

    It was my boyfriend birthday and first time there. The crab cakes were cold, servers were slow we had to get up and find our own utensils, took forever to get our drinks and when we went to order another one the server said “we are out of tequila” ?? ive been once before when they first opened and everything was great. The Mac & cheese was horrible, the prices don’t match the quality or service.

    Made a reservation for 3:45 but still had to wait for about 20 minutes. So we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. Ordered the 12 lamb chops entree and they only gave us 9. Thankfully they corrected the issue no problem!

    If you want a more subdued environment don't go during Sunday brunch. Music was so loud that patrons were literally yelling to have conversations that were meaningful and could be heard.

    We were sat in the back room, so we couldn’t hear the music at all and it was very hot. I’ve been several of times before and we didn’t get the full experience being in that room. Food was okay, I’ve had it been way better in the past.
