    I always want more from this place. Very commercial feeling. Would prefer Lou's, even though they share an owner.

    Nice location but service could be better. Our waiter was a bit slow and the place wasn't busy.

  • Bitches Who Brunch

    The Bitches Say: C+. Acre 121 needs to get the timing and the portion sizes right. Once those are fixed, this would be a pretty solid bottomless brunch.

    The shrimp and grits are excellent. Don't bother with the fried green tomatoes, though.

    If you want more than one alcoholic beverage to actually make it to your table before leave, stick to their decent beer menu.

    I don't understand this place...not open during the day Saturday or all day Sunday and Monday. Also, they card you just to get in. NEWS FLASH: you are a restaurant, not a nightclub.
