Food is okay, not as great as they would like to have you think. Prices are high. Music is nice. Staff is a mixed bag - some are very good and helpful, others not so much. This was a better place before the expansion.

The food was fine but they do not offer table service at lunch. Our bill was $65 for 2 people at lunch. I do not drink but my friend did had a couple of glasses of wine.

We arrived by car in Lakeland, Fla. We had 6 hours to kill before catching the train back to NC. I have to say everyone in this town is VERY friendly. Stopped here by chance. It was a busy day with college graduations going on and they kept apologizing for the wait but we didn't feel it was unnecessarily long.... More

Stopped in for brunch. Classic eggs benedict was tremendous. And the grits. Oh, the grits. It is hard to be wow'd by grits, but this is the place. Almost stole the show from the eggs benedict. Also, they do candied bacon. You have to try it. Real good. Jeremy, our server, was awesome. We will be back. Also, a full... More

Lots of great things to choose from - everything from tasty entries to rich dessert to alcoholic drinks. Not a good place if you are on a budget.

Girl time on a beautiful Saturday morning and I was very hungry after a solid workout. Ive been here a few times and this was my second time having brunch.
