    I was almost hesitant to cone here based on some reviews, but I had a really great meal here! I'll report back on consistency. Bonus it's the fantastic outdoor space and Hop Drop on draft

    Hosted my in-laws for dinner here and neither the kitchen or the owner who waited on us disappointed on a single thing. Top notch option for dinner in Matthews.

    Sit outside if it's a nice day. They have fans and it's a nice atmosphere.

    My favorites are the aioli shrimp appetizer, creme brûlée, and the Cuban sandwich (not all in one sitting).

    Quality of food not up to par with price. But cheesecake is quite good, and staff is friendly & attentive.

    Hummus app is not worth 9.00 but it's good trader Joe chips.

    Good food but this place just can't get Vodka tonics right. Even Grey Goose is bad!! I'm tired of sending them back. Not like me. Beware.
