Stopped in without a reservation after 8 on a Saturday and were promptly seated. Shared apps, salads, and small plates: all of high quality. Fresh oysters were very tasty. Great selection of beer and wine. We will return (again).

Attended brunch with my family on a Sunday afternoon. Not many patrons but service was slow. Ordered the stuffed French toast, not impressed! Out of the party of 6 everyone was disappointed with their food except the 2 that ordered the buttermilk fried chicken.

A friend of mine has been telling me about this restaurant. She is from down south so I figured it must be good. Good selection of beer and the bartender was friendly and welcoming. Loved the bread, oil and corn bread that came before the...More

While visiting the Buffalo area, my wife and I decided to make a return visit as we had enjoyed the first time. Unfortunately this time turned out to be somewhat discouraging. We had reservations and was seated immediately. After that the experience went down hill....More
