Mouth watering, delicious, well cooked food with southern touch. A bit noisy when really crowded on a Friday night, but definitely worth the trip. The smoked fried chicken is unique and delicious. Fries are fresh, home cut..

Lafayette restaurants offer some of the best cooking anywhere, and this place is quickly becoming one of our favorites. It has a spacious, energetic interior as well as more serene outdoor dining. The menu is diverse and daring, creative and classic. The food is well-prepared and served in generous portions by a consistently good wait staff. Craft cocktails are outstanding,... More

Had an awesome time here. It was the first time I had been here. There was no wait, seated right away and soon after was greeted by our server. The food selection was amazing and so tasteful. The service was outstanding from all staff

This place has great atmosphere! It was not what I thought for sure! The drinks were great as well as the appetizers. It was just a bit over priced. Worth it for a time to time treat!

I had a lovely dinner here with my relatives. We shared the appetizers including the chicken fried green tomatoes and kimchi frites along with the pork sliders. The smoke fried chicken and biscuits were delicious and my guess from the empty plates of my companions was the social bowl and flatbreads were also done well. The beautiful presentation of the...

Six friends meet monthly for lunch at different restaurants in the area. Our latest meeting was here. Normally there is much conversation even while reviewing the menu. This time we were silent for a full 10 minutes. Why? Though we wanted to find something delicious on the menu nothing appealed to us. So we all ordered the cheeseburger. If you... More

My friend had a gift card and I was eager to try socials after hearing about it. Cool atmosphere! The food did not disappoint! My friend was excited about trying the sweet potato biscuits; I was less enthused... Until I tasted them... Sooo wonderful!!!! I can't ever remember all the things we tried but it was all very good!!!!

Fried chicken, shrimp, burgers and flatbread were all excellent. Server was attentive but not overbearing. Reasonably priced.

We had a great time, the atmosphere is fun and every dish and all we had was delicious with a generous portion. Sometimes ya spend good money at a restaurant for a disappointing experience, but sometimes ya win, and this was one of those times!

My wife, son and I went to celebrate my future DIL's birthday. We were seated promptly and had quick attention to our table by Simone who made sure that we had water, silverware and menus. Our waiter, Gabe, was also very attentive. Cocktails were very good and the appetizer we chose--2 servings of crab nachos--was delicious. There are 4 on... More
