    The pancakes are crazy huge and are super good! You don't even need syrup to eat them! Plus, the menu is flawless. Bottom of the Bowl, Fried Chicken sandwich are the best!

    Slow service but the crab cake Benedict was great. Don't forget to order a massive pancake. 1 feeds at least 3 people.

    The city Benedict is a great take on a classic. Eggs Benedict with andouille and spinach instead of Canadian bacon

    I have been here twice and both times they have been out of bread bowls for Bottom of the Barrel entree (and the main reason I came here). Suck!

    This was a this is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. I can't recommend this place enough, the food was absolutely fabulous. It doesn't look like much, but looks are very deceiving.

    Pancakes are GREAT, but we left with a giant box the size of a large pizza with leftovers. Mary was a great server! Go hungry! Lots of great dishes besides pancakes.. Will definitely go back!
