After reading the reviews we were a little hesitant to go for lunch on a Sunday. After a 20 minute wait for our table, we were seated and our waitress was quick to bring us water. We thought that maybe we were going to have a better experience than others. Our grand daughter was with us and ordered plain pancakes. After an hour wait, we noticed that groups that had come in after us were already getting their food. I asked our waitress why others coming in after us had received their food and could she please bring pancakes for my grand daughter. I explained that the table next to us was seated a good time after and they had received their food and we were willing to wait for ours if she would just bring the pancakes. She came back to our table to ask what our order was!!!!!!!!!!!! Our order had not been placed! My husband got up and left as he had to be somewhere else but the rest of us stayed as she said she would put a rush on our order. The food was good once we got it. Unless you have lots of time AND patience, I would recommend you eat elsewhere on Sundays.

I love this place - the atmosphere is so chic and the food is so good! I always get the Cajun Eggs Benedict and the duck fries. Need to branch out one of these visits.

Food was very deelish but wait time for the food was HORRIBLE. We waited a good hour sipping on water...young lady didn't even check on us. They need to hire more ppl and work on common courtesy.

Food and service were great, but the eggs on the grillades and grits were a little salty.

I enjoyed my dining experience. Food was good, server was attentive, and the vibe was busy,but not frantic. I took a seat at the bar because it was crowded and I was pleased.
