We came for brunch and for their well-deserved reputation for awesome Bloody Marys. The BMs came in a variety of flavors; the Bloody Bay (made with clam juice and Old Bay seasoning) is highly recommended. Innovative brunch options abound, but the Smoked Salmon Hand-Pie is...More

Great restaurant; nice and pleasant experience. Very creative dishes. Some sort of southern - European blend.

if you're going for expensive southern fair in a "hard to get in" venue, okay, but really if you're out of town there's better places to have a meal. Might be okay to hang out in the bar area, but don't be late, your table...More

This was our third trip here and I want to like this place, but I just can’t do it. Reserved a table for 7 PM, walked in, one couple ahead of us at the table (we were admittedly 5-10 min early). Hostess asked them if...More

Place was packed on a tuesday night, but they got us right into a little table in the back. My partner in crime protested a wee bit about the seat, concerned that our fairly already well lubricated boisterousness might bother the others, so they graciously...More

The staff are generally so friendly and helpful here that when you encounter someone who seems too good to wait on you, it is disappointing. The food is great, drinks are generally well mixed, decent wines, and a nice ambience. Our male server was fairly...More

We sat out in the backyard deck for brunch - inside seemed a bit dark on a nice summer day. Food was excellent - very high quality. My mimosa was really good as well. Did not expect this nice a restaurant from the way it...More

The ovens are turned on early. Six o'clock most days. Earlier on Sunday. Within an hour, bread is rising, apples are being sliced. Pecan pies are pulled hot from the oven and left to cool. Ice cream churns in the machine. Cups of coffee steam on the prep table, the baker's cup marked with chocolaty fingerprints. By midmorning, pork shoulder, rubbed with spices the day before, is slowly smoked. And white buckets are filled with sliced onions. Corn is shucked. The stock that cooked all night is taken off the stove and strained. Bags of fresh shrimp are delivered in old grocery store bags. The waiters arrive in groups, shirts and ties on hangers. By then, every burner in the kitchen is being used. Herbs are chopped. Scallops cleaned. Ovens at 500 degrees. All sauces are checked. Bartenders polish their shakers. Silverware is rolled and every surface is wiped down. Music. Lights. Doors are opened. Dinnertime. At Acme. Seven nights a week. Local never tasted so damn good.
