    Great date spot or brunch with the girls. The service is better than at most restaurants twice the price.

    The Smoked Bloody Mary is brilliant, especially on a Sunday morning. Rauchbier in a cocktail? Hell yes.

    Took my partner for his BDay and we won't be back. Food poisoning for the both of us! While it could've been that one time, it only leaves one to guess how unclean that kitchen/staff are. #disgust

    The square breakfast is the best "boring" breakfast in town. Gumbo is pretty swell too.

    The brunch "country fried steak" is NOT actually country fried, it is just a steak.
