    Love this place. Perfect date night. Head to the bar for a cocktail. Then enjoy an amazing dinner! I suggest the Black and Tan and shrimp and grits! Nice staffing and nice manager!

    One of the best happy hour spots in the city. Are you freaking kidding me? $2 bombshell blonde? $2 Brooklyn Lager? $3 daily whiskey specials? Consistent food and well thought out menu. Yay!

    shrimp & white cheddar grits. Large… prawns… are seared on both sides and nestled atop heirloom grits, which come from Waco, Texas. Beneath, a slow poached egg can be found waiting to become one. Read more

    The name "Branch Water" refers to the final step in the process of bottling whiskey. Asking for a "bourbon and branch" is equivalent to ordering a whiskey and water.

    This place is amazing- from food to bar to waitstaff, all great! Word to the wise tho- DO NOT try to book a party here for the private room because Julia will ruin your Branch Water opinion, so bad :(
