What a magical outdoor/indoor venue!! We had a wonderful experience planning a casino night themed holiday party here. The venue accommodated our guest count very nicely (well over 200+ attendees). The outdoor fire pits were the perfect touch, along with the smore kits assembled by their team. The hors d'oeuvres were tasty, and the charcuterie meat/cheese boards were a hit. Svetlana and team were able to work with our budget, even down to ensuring the alcohol tab per person would work for our budget. All of the planning details were nailed down perfectly... even to the casino themed balloon arch photo op backdrop/decor! Also, the bartenders/staff were very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to using this venue again in the future for private events.

We held our wedding reception at The Honeysuckle and I have absolutely nothing negative to say about anything throughout the entire planning process or the event. Amber was a pleasure to work with while planning this event. She worked with us while we were on a budget and had many options available for how to best utilize our alcohol budget. There were a large variety of food options to work with every preference and budget. The staff was very friendly and attentive during our reception. The space is perfect for a large event as they've got an indoor, semi-outdoor, and outdoor area so everyone can spread out. They have cornhole available outside and let us bring other outdoor games. I've included some pictures with table decoration/activity ideas. I really cannot say enough good things about the physical space or everyone we worked with throughout the whole process!

Cute place. Not in the best area of durham. If you parked your car and walked you need to be careful. We ordered several appetizers all tasted good. I had salad and added chicken. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. You order at the bar and the hostess brings the food to your table.

Diamond in the rough in the Lakewood area of Durham. Came here after our usual brunch place was booked. Loved the seating concept and plenty of space for children that run (like mine likes to). Here is what we ordered: French Toast topped with cream and peaches. It was good. Cream definitely was the highlight. Syrup would’ve put it over the top. Mimosas-Just ok, wouldn’t order again. BLT w/Fries: fries were amazing. BLT was just ok the tomato got lost flavor wise in the rest of the ingredients.. would not order again. Fried Brussel Sprouts. Highlight of the meal. perfect flavor and crunch. Sharable with the table portion. Omlet was also just ok (would not order again) Coffee (drip) was solid )I drink mine black so I don’t need much. Overall a great brunch experience that we can’t wait to share with friends soon!

The atmosphere is so pretty and relaxing. The food is amazing and locally sourced. I had the BLT, loaded fries w cheese sauce made from scratch, and tres leches cake. All amazing. Great place for a date or brunch.

Very nice laid back type place, with a lot of great options, some healthy, some not so much. Great freshly shaken lemonade🤤. Will definitely be coming back for more of those and the great salads.

This place was okay. Overpriced for the quality of food. Nothing super special. Pictures online make it look like a really cute outdoor space but it backs up to a food lion parking lot. It was terrible but I won’t go again.

This is a great spot with so much potential but unfortunately the new owners seem to just not get it right. Not certain why they do not go back to utilizing the food trucks. When that was going on there was always a crowd there but now it is like a ghost town and their kitchen prepared food is just not great. Hope they get it figured out.

Yum! This place rocks! Hip, local food in a tight knit community, kind, accommodating staff, and AMAZING food! We went here for an end of year teachers lunch and it had us all licking our fingers. I would definitely go here again. Lovely indoor, covered patio, shady outdoor, and full sun outdoor seating and a variety of well curated food options gives something for everyone!

I attended an outdoor meetup here, and it’s such a great space! There are a ton of tables outside (plus they have cornhole!). Their drink selection is amazing, and they have tasty vegan food, too!

Absolutely enjoyed my time here. The customer service is nothing less than amazing, and the environment is perfect for friends, family, and even coworkers. Their menu varies from formal to fine dining. They also have small decorated barns available for reservation. The brussel sprouts that everyone mentions are extremely great. We always enjoy our time here!

A fun dining experience! Went on a week night and there was ample sitting room. Nice to just order at the bar and hang out and play some of the games. Has a great indoor outdoor area which is nice for containing kids! Definitely a good nice to hang out for the afternoon or evening. BBQ burger was great and the garlic fries were amazing!
