This place has good potential, but there are a few things keeping it from the top. It's a bit of a hipster pub built in an older building, but it was an enjoyable stop for a family lunch. The evening atmosphere probably skews a bit more to the younger crowd.
First, we enjoyed all the food. The scotch egg was delicious, the pimento cheese hush puppies were a hit, and the burgers were excellent (though massive and hard to eat without a fork and knife). The misses were the shrimp and grouper corn dog (which was just weird, though it tasted fine) and the chicken sandwich (which was overcooked and slightly bland, but there may be a too-long explanation for that, so it gets a pass). All of the sides (tots, collards, grits, and sweet potato fries) were enjoyable, though the collards had quite the vinegar bite to them. In general, all items were tasty, prepared well, and were reasonably priced (if not just slightly expensive).
I know the restaurant focuses on cocktails, which is fine, but I'd like to see a larger beer selection. It looked like they only had a few taps, and only a couple of which were local. Would like to see that expanded for those of us that prefer beer over booze.
Service was OK. Our waiter was courteous and did offer his menu recommendations. However, he disappeared...a lot. There were times where drinks needed a refill or flatware needed to be requested/replaced and he wasn't around. The worst part was that he'd come in the room to tend to another table in the area, but fail to check on us or even note if we needed anything. We were finished with the meal for a good 10 minutes before he came over to ask us about dessert and the bill. And I mean empty plate finished. Again, not a sour experience, but just noticing that service could have been a bit better.
Overall, well check this place out again. It's off the main drag, so I'm sure crowds don't ever get too crazy. However, it is within sight of the Wahoo's stadium, so it's probably a popular place during the season.
