    This was simple mix of high end with a lounge feel. The drinks were great there famous for Moscow mule with self made ginger beer. The food was fun French/American. Great place to hang out also

    I had the fried catfish with the mac and cheese. The catfish was bland and the mac and cheese was grainy.

    The Mac and cheese was also quite good... Dryer rather than a creamy type.

    The Dark & Stormy is a delicious cocktail! Probably one of my favorite cocktails of all time. They make their own Ginger beer and I believe the limeaid is freshly squeezed.

    Chicken & Waffles is on point. Honey butter is so good. Mac and cheese is a great side option. If you're craving eggs, get the huevos rancheros!

    Vegetable rarebit is delicious but on the small side, however if you order a side of fries after the meal comes you get a whole plate! Good food and reasonably priced.

    Moscow mules is best I've ever had as well as the French toast. I like mine not soggy and light egg taste. This was perfect for me

    A visiting New Yorker's opinion...: a MUST try. Hot chicken, grits and the Moscow mule rule. Great interior and a great vibe. Southern meets Brooklyn.

    The Rarebit is a throwback bar, both in its decor and drink prices. The cocktails are bright with housemade sodas, and breakfast is served all day. Go for the drinks.

    If you come here and don't order a Moscow Mule, God kills a puppy. Just do it. Trust me. Think of the puppies.
