Amazing atmosphere & cuisine! Customer service, even during a pandemic is on point! If you want a vibe, you can find it here. Food is delicious & unique. Drinks are amazing as well. Love to support small & black-owned businesses and this place checks the box for both!
The ox tail was very good. Very tender. The chicken skins taste like pork rinds to me so I enjoyed them. The cat fish was too salty. A cool place to check out and try food that you don't see all the time. Awesome area too.
My wife and I really wanted to like this place. The atmosphere and location was awesome but the food not so much. My recommendation would be to revise the menu so that it is more reflective of what you are actually serving. For example the oxtail dish tastes more like shredded stewed beef....definitely not a luscious oxtail. I wish you guys well and hope that you make improvements on your menu....

First time here, I had read about this place in several publications. It was amazing, the food, the service, the vibe. Definitely recommend this place. While here walk around Camp Northend and look at all the cool artwork/murals.
Leah and Louise was a bit hard to find for this Camp Northend newbie, but the hostess (Jessica) was lovely and helped us change our reservation then actively walked us through finding the restaurant! Waitress (Lia, forgive me if I spelled it wrong!) was immediately welcoming and made us feel confident in adherence to Covid safety guidelines. She maintained her amazing positive spirit throughout our experience and was beyond helpful in food and drink selection. Then THE FOOD! We love the atmosphere of the establishment, but the open kitchen with warm lighting added to the vibe. The food is almost tapas style and comes out as its ready. We had the chicken chips, Up in Smoke, catfish dish, and grilled local fish (grouper) fish as the main meal. We ended with the bread pudding on the month which was caramel peach. Every dish presented the opportunity for what I call the perfect bite. Each item we ordered made us feel at home as Southerners while simultaneously having the enjoy to taste the chefs elevated version of home style cooking. Each ingredient married with the next and brought you on a flavor journey. Long story short, the food was GOOD. 10/10 would come again, and not get lost next time
