    Came here on a Sunday for brunch (more than 1hr to get a table!) but the wait was so worth it. Super crowded, but the food is good and the cocktails are great. Loved the Rosemary vodka lemonade. Yum.

    The honey chicken and pickles biscuit sandwich is fantastic - swap out grits for fries if you want. Challenge yourself to actually eat it like a sandwich, but have tons of napkins on standby.

    I challenge you to eat the southern BLT like a sandwich! Between the friend green tomatoes, incredible buttermilk fried chicken, and the towering pickle slaw this is a mountain of food!

    Was expecting a small sandwich when I ordered the Sausage Gravy Smothered Chicken Biscuit. I was shocked when this huge portion with cheese grits came out! So yummy and saved the rest for breakfast!

    I don't know why everyone freaks out about the fried pickles--they somehow managed to be both watery and oily. But the Sausage Gravy Smothered Chicken on a buttermilk biscuit is rib-sticking yum.

    I gave it another shot & had the fried chicken biscuit in mushroom gravy & it was delicious! I couldn't sub the cheese grits for mac & cheese so we shared it- it was a huge order plus creamy & cheesy.

    The Bloody Mary at Jacob’s Pickles is a piece of art, assuming your idea of art involves topping things with eggs and bacon. They'll also hook you up w/ addable beets, cucumbers, carrots, and pickles. Read more

    Weekends are packed, get here when they open at 9am to ensure a table. Otherwise, they will text you when your table is ready so grab a brew next door at E's bar - reasonable prices for craft beer.

    The salad wedge appetizer is an amazing amalgam of blue cheese, cherry tomatoes, bacon, and of course lettuce. True: delicious, crunchy, crisp, flavorful. False: nutritious.

    Chicken bacon egg & cheese on a biscuit is the best choice for brunch or dinner. Start with a rosemary vodka lemonade and a pickle sampler. The mac & cheese is amazing, but leaves you feeling guilty.

    One of the best meals that I have had in awhile. Get the pickles appetizer, try the shrimp & grits (phenomenal), fried chicken smothered with sausage gravy - off the chain. Be prepared for sodium hi!

    Pickles are the bedrock of this fun-loving café that looks like an old-fashioned Jewish deli. They’re servin’ up Southern fare with a Jewish flare! Don’t miss the XL biscuit sandwich and fried Oreos.

    Great fresh cocktails & liquor selection, open late. Friday late nights fun & not too packed. All the southern influenced dishes are best, and the seafood good quality too. Biscuits are a must-try.

    So good! Pickled tomatoes, biscuits and fixins, and deviled eggs were perfect. Shrimp and bacon and grits was salty enough but could have been saltier, especially when paired with the blt Bloody Mary.

    My favorite restaurant in the city! I have never gotten anything here that I haven't loved. Make sure to get some pickles, dilly beans, candied beets, and something with biscuits (or a side order).

    The pickles are super good but honestly the fried chicken is overhyped. It's solid but not the best around. But the pickles! Pickle backs here real intense cuz the cups are real big, adding delay

    If it's your first time make sure you get a biscuit! For a lighter menu option try the fish tacos - super flavorful and filling without feeling heavy.

    I tried the fried pickles after seeing so many tips to get them but I wouldn't get them again. I guess I'm just not a fan. The chicken sandwiches, root beer floats, and caesar salad are all yummy!

    The pickle selection is solid, and the jalapeños were a surprising delight. But the hit of the show is definitely the buttermilk fried chicken. Goes particularly well with the pancakes.

    I don't care how good the food is, the customer is awful. We were seated at the very end of a bar with many open tables. Also the AC dripped on us the whole time and no one cared that we were wet.
