The atmosphere here was supreme. The food was nice. However, 11:00 on a Saturday and they had neither a lunch or a brunch menu. Of the 2 appetizers, one entree, and two kids meals we ordered- the kids meals were the largest portions. The corn curls were strange. The $30 shrimp and grits was too spicy. The devilish toast came with a knife so that we could cut it, but it should have been in appetizer size portions already. I was really torn here. I think if I had come for dinner I would have been really impressed, but lunch (or what should be BRUNCH) felt like an after thought here. For over $100, it didnt feel worth it.
Beautiful little restaurant with unique foods! One gripe is the parking situation, as you are pretty much forced to park on the street which is a hassle. Service was a tad slow and refills were only supplied once despite spicy foods - it was not a busy night. However, the complimentary pull-apart sour cream and onion brioche bread was wonderful with the honey butter. The corn curls were also very unique and flavorful! As far as the food went, the dishes are served in very large proportions. The Goopy Burger tasted like an upscale Big Mac to me not that its a bad thing but the flavor is very similar. I opted to get a salad, which honestly wasnt the best, as well as the cashew mac which was HUGE, but very tasty. Others at my table thought the food was just adequate, and I have to agree. The atmosphere is nice. The location is not great due to parking. The food is fairly good. Its worth a shot if in the area.

First time here. The place looks small from the street but it magically expands to a lovey outdoor area with beautiful trees and decor. The food was amazing and so were the cocktails. Extremely helpful waitress and patient, cause I couldn't make up my mind. She had great recommendations. They do change up the menu for the seasons, so check the menu out before you go. The only downside is the parking, it's on street and Davidson St. is very busy. I would recommend ride sharing here and that way you can enjoy more yummy cocktails.
The service by Logan was good. He knew the menu well and made good suggestions. We enjoyed our meal (we both got the trout) and the appetizer. A nice and different version of mac n cheese was tasty as well.We also met and talked with Chef Tyler. Everyone was friendly a d we shall definitely return!
I loved the pasta here! Tasted so good but the portion was very small for the price($25), it was a little spicy so if you like spicy, definitely get this! the shrimp appetizer tasted refreshing. The cocktails here were the best!!! Overall a nice restaurant, I gave it a 4 star only because it was a little pricey.
