It's been a while since I was here, but I love this spot. Great wings and other fun appetizers. The menu has many different choices and there are always specials. Tonight they offered pot roast stuffed potato skins. Whoa! Not for this girlish figure.. but tempted. Crowd is lively and Kyle the bartender is so nice and friendly. He made me feel right at home.

I’ve been here a few times and every time I get the chicken and waffles because they are what dreams are made of. It is like heaven in your mouth. If you go, you have to get the chicken and waffles. It’s really the only thing they need on their menu!

Great location - Free parking in the garage around the corner in the evenings/weekend.
Outdoor seating, which was full (good sign). Interior impression is overall cold. A little industrial, a little Ikea, a little lost for authenticity.
Warm greetings and we were seated. 1/2 off bottle of wine and a great Saison from nearby Blackberry Farm had us in good spirits.
Menu was disappointing in that it had a little of everything. Too all over the place, a common trap these sort of establishments fall into.
Chicken and waffles. I rarely pass on this classic southern dish. Not Watsonized by cheese in the waffle and sided by spiced watermelon. Waffle was overall dry and wouldn't allow the bland syrup to penetrate it. Chicken was good. Simply not enough room on the plate to maneuver it, especially with it being dry.
Burger salad was a great fit for my Paleo wife.
We assumed that they closed at 9PM due to the server removing condiments and anything else not stapled down in the middle of our conversation. We got the not so subtle hint and departed. Looks like they close at 10 which is a shame to have ended our evening on that note.

Not Watsons. Not quite there. A proper manager could easily steer the ship back on course.

I've been here twice in the last month. First time was lunch after the Farmers' Market.. There wasn't a line like the other restaurants on Market Square. Can't understand why!Delicious toppings on the burgers, including fried oysters. Beef was very flavorful. Friendly service. Brought a different group of friends the 2nd time and they were equally pleased. Love the little basket the fries come in!

We stopped for the Bloody Mary and mimosas drink specials and were not disappointed. Enjoyed an outside table and watched the Saturday morning market square crowd walking by. Service was friendly and unrushed...we enjoyed a second round
