    Had the Salted Crusted Prime Rib and it was amazing. The Red Velvet Cake for dessert was worth it. Best food I had in a long time!

    The sirloin steak with Cabbage, kale, and pears is a great meal. The steak melts off the bone.

    If you want real stuffed French Toast, go to Eva's Bakery in Salt Lake City. I know it sounds random, but it has the best French toast I've ever had, even better than my favorite NYC brunch spots.

    High volume, but food is still decent. You won't impress anyone taking them here.

    Great food but bad wait staff. Was difficult to get our waiter's attention, he often forgot about us when he said he would bring us something. We were served food with no utensils.

    I'd highly recommend the Chicken & Waffles with Mac & Cheese and Sweet Potato. The corn bread is also amazing. You should come here if you're looking for superb food, though it is slightly pricey.

    The food here is great. Awesome hash browns and steak and eggs. But the home made beignets are where it's at. Incredible!

    Throughout the entire dinner the noise level was quite disturbing. I enjoyed the apple mac&cheese. However the pork chops my girlfriend ordered tasted very bitter and were quite unpleasant to eat.

    The reviews here strongly recommended the strawberries cream stuffed French toast, but I beg to differ! It was too sweet for my taste,and I've had better stuffed French toasts elsewhere!

    By far I would consider it one of the best breakfast and brunch location in DC😍😍 but try to make a reservation before you come because it can be crowded during the holidays.

    Forget the famous zero star review. Good food, enough of it, and not that expensive. Mac 'n Cheese is good, as are the grits. Expect a crowd. Consider a reservation.

    Chicken and waffles are so good. Also the cornbread is $5, a huge portion, and has actual corn kernels in it, how awesome is that. Mac and cheese side was meh tho.

    Everyone is raving about the stuffed French Toast, but it's the worst I've ever had. It's hardly stuffed at all, it has less stuffing than a Twinkie. I'll give it one more try for dinner.

    Rather than wait over an hour for seating, try the open bar - first come, first serve! You can order from the menu there too! Can't go wrong w/ the Eggs Benedict or the chicken waffles + Mac & cheese.
