The crowds were already gathering outside the door for Sunday breakfast when we arrived 10 minutes before they officially opened! And now we know why... first of all...the restaurant walls are covered with all kinds of fabulous art work. The wait staff is exceptional... Fun and friendly and makes the dining experience a very very enjoyable one. And the food is to die for... Servings are generous... Sweet potato fries are yummy ... And the desserts are creative (chocolate covered bacon) and delicious!

Great service, nice decor - very cool and different with terrific outside space for dining. Food is chef prepared with all fresh ingredients and you probably won't find these selections on any other menu. Very avant-garde in preparation and taste combinations - just like the reviews said. We thought there would be some more 'everyday' type items on the menu, especially with the emphasis on Americana Folk Art. That all said the beef was flavorful and tasty in the hamburger, the bread excellent, but the 1lb. pork chop was over cooked (slightly dry and chewy). Lance gave great service and the place was hopping on a stormy night, mid-week. You might like it plenty - we will choose a different place when dinning next time in Tampa.

I went here for date night and loved it! the place was busy when we went which is always a good sign. the bar is downstairs with an extensive beer and cocktail list. we sat upstairs overlooking the downstairs which was nice. live bands play on the weekends starting at 9pm. the food was very good! I will definitely be returning here in the future! 5 stars!

Awesome food. I had a great waitress but the hostess was rude and the bar tender would not allow me to transfer the check to my table. A small v thing but that is just bad service to be so focused on your tip.
