    Maple syrup is great, but large stack is underwhelming. Gravy was also tasty, but biscuits were cold in the middle and were a little like cardboard.

    Ok southern food brunch. Everything was a bit too greasy or sweet for my non-southern palate.

    Food was very disappointing to say the least. Bland appetizers, rock hard ribs, under seasoned sides. Service was slow as well. And if i ask for recommendations on a beer, don't recite the menu to me

    Potato au gratin is awesome. Whiskey sour house cocktail was too sour. Trefethen red wine was best offered by the glass.

    The cheese grits are to-die-for and don't think about leaving without getting the banana pudding for dessert. The potatoes au gratin are really good too! Great comfort food!
