    I’m not an onion fan, so the “Onion Hushpuppies” didn’t sound great to me. Luckily, I am a hushpuppy fan, so I gave them a try and am happy to say they’re dern good.

    Service not good. Beer selection is mediocre especially for a taproom. We didn’t stay around to check out the food

    Good music on a Saturday night, solid mix of current hits and 90s / 00s rap.

    The restaurant claims to have great fresh jalapeño poppers. They are terrible. No flavor, overly breaded, and bland. The crab cakes were tasty - pan fried and lightly breaded.

    Prices are kind of steep for the portion sizes. Food is alright. All in all, I think it's overpriced. Consider yourself warned.

    ...(continued) table. Whether it was a bad night, or everyone was "too busy" as a server, no matter how busy the house is no patron should be blatantly ignored or disregarded.

    The food is yummy, but tonight I was completely ignored. The restaurant was sufficiently staffed and upon looking around only 3 other tables of ppl had just sat down.

    brunch will mean you have to wait a long time to get your food. You can sit! But you won't eat yet. the food was not worth the wait. Come after brunch, before dinner and get the grilled cheese.

    Brunch menu is limited and you can't get the normal menu until after 3pm. Very few options for my mom (has celiac) and service was slow. I usually love this place, this was so disappointing!

    I would suggest going elsewhere. The people here r too busy talking to each other to assist you. There are much better places downtown
