I was here a couple of times, but it was always for a drink, so I cannot really give any advice regarding the food quality. The place is really nice, the staff is polite and drinks are good. I like coming here during the day, maybe at about 5pm and have a bloodymary at the bar. Suggested (maybe not ideal... More

Mixed review. Food was generally good. Friends enjoyed the vegetable skillet and the chicken and waffles. Biscuits and gravy was too sweet for my taste. Ordered donuts as an appetizer (good but pricey) and bacon as a side (very good). My large blood orange mimosa was mostly ice and very weak. Service was a little slow and we had a... More

We had a hamburger (not the best and not the worst) and pulled pork sliders (really really tasty!!). The vanilla bourbon milkshake was just so good! This is an upscale fun diner for family or friends! Very busy and fun!

I was a bit disappointed with... More

Ate here on a Saturday night and the place was packed as expected. The menu is comfort food based - mac and cheese, ribs, meatloaf, burgers, sandwiches - and something a little different - BBQ Hog Head, Moroccan Stew.. As a group we tried the fried brussels sprouts, a couple flatbreads, wings, mac and cheese, burger, meatloaf, texas rachel in... More

Went for an early dinner with a friend. Came in on a Wednesday when the place had just opened. Asked hostess if we could be seated in a booth and was told they expected a lot of diners and couldn't accommodate our request so we were shown to a table. Two hours later when we paid and were leaving, there... More

The place is great, the outdoor seating was nice and we had a good time, but it's a little pricy. But otherwise it's a great place! Good to hangout for lunch or dinner party.

Opens at 10am on Sunday. We got there right about then and got in line. Wasn't that long at this point. We chose to sit outside, its a nice patio area. The blood orange mimosa was ok, not great. Our food came sooooo fast! We couldn't believe it. We shared the donut of the day which was fantastic. Not greasy... More

We were looking for a casual restaurant on a Monday night and saw this one and decided to try it. It is really great. The atmosphere is charming - and eclectic. You can sit in the brick walled bar area, or outside or in an old train car! The menu is full of comfort food with a southern flair. I... More

We went to dinner with my daughter on a Saturday night to this renovated and expanded diner. First, I love the decor reminiscent of the old diner era with several, modern updates. In fact, even the ladies room which is super clean is in keeping with the theme. We sat in a side booth with red 'leather' upholstery which was... More
