That's all we had, 2 bloody mary cocktails, but they were yummy and I'm hard to please when it comes to my favorite drink. Well done!

We enjoyed a pleasant and delicious meal here. The tamale with shrimp and avocado, a creative adaptation of the traditional tamale,was delicious. Service was attentive. We found the restaurant to be a bit lound and the TV screens at the bar to be distracting, for...More

The food was alright, but very bland. My bean burger had almost no flavor, and the toppings also lacked flavor. Supposedly there was a cumin spread, but I could not tell it was there except for visually. Another person in my party concurred about the...More

We ate here for Easter Brunch for our first visit. I had the Cobb Salad, which I enjoyed, and my boyfriend had the English Breakfast. I ordered a side of cheese grits to get my breakfast fix in. I would definitely return.

Varied menu, prompt seating, attentive service....very good food...what could be better. A surprise brunch choice for us. We've been here before, a few times, and have always thought it was "okay"..but brunch was definitely our best experience here to date.

Service was phenomenal. Dinner entrees were delicious. Highly recommend the spaghetti puttanesca, the NC Trout, and fried chicken (even the sliders on the kids menu were tasty). Perfect compliment to taking in the college town atmosphere.
