    Bottomless mimosas $18 will knock your socks off. Chicken sandwich for brunch is incredible. Get a waffle as your side you won't regret it.

    LOVE their brunch. Everything on the menu is delicious and they give you HUGE portions! The $15 bottomless deal is great... try the grapefruit mimosa!

    Recently redid their menu and have a new chef. They're smoking meat right out in front! Get the ribs. I'm from Texas and this is good BBQ.

    Accidentally came here during their Tuesday trivia night and had a blast! The wine for happy hour is pretty legit as well.

    The Bitches Say: C+. Acre 121 needs to get the timing and the portion sizes right. Once those are fixed, this would be a pretty solid bottomless brunch.

    Shockingly great breakfast! A fabulous and fully stocked build your own Bloody Mary bar. The shrimp and grits were delicious. I'll definitely be back

    Mondays kids eat free with purchase of entree!! We had a great server. The grits were exquisite :) but we were also the first customers at 5pm sharp.

    Beer battered pickles are quite tasty. They make everything in house .. even curing their own pickles!

    I always want more from this place. Very commercial feeling. Would prefer Lou's, even though they share an owner.

    The shrimp and grits are excellent. Don't bother with the fried green tomatoes, though.

    I don't understand this place...not open during the day Saturday or all day Sunday and Monday. Also, they card you just to get in. NEWS FLASH: you are a restaurant, not a nightclub.

    If you want more than one alcoholic beverage to actually make it to your table before leave, stick to their decent beer menu.

    Get the mac and cheese if you have a craving for penne in alfredo sauce.

    Don't order the biscuits. Cobb salad is quite good with the deviled eggs.
