Went here for lunch on a Wednesday where they do half price Chicken Waffles. It was delicious, everyone I was with enjoyed the food. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly. Would come back for sure

The atmosphere, service and drinks were good but the food was less than average. The pork belly main was luke warm and meat was like rubber. Would not recommend for anything more than a drink or two.

For a seafood fan - an entire flat fish baked and stuffed with cajun prawns - simply delicious. 1-kg of BBQ beef ribs served with tangy cucumber pickles...what a combination. . Food : 4/5 Service : 4/5 Price : $$ Place : 4/5

Found while meandering through the city, not an obvious place to locate but worth the effort. Great guidance from waitstaff on plate size and mixes. Food designed to be shared over good conversation while good southern jazz plays at a reasonable volume. We left just...More

We assumed it was Southern style food. It wasn't. I used the bottled sauce on the table to give my steak some flavour. I didn't read the menu correctly and ordered the baked/roasted black eyed peas as a side dish. The peas were obviously crunchy...More
