Been there 2 times so far. First time everything was great and bottomless mimosas were never empty. The second time we went, the service was not very great. Had to chase down drinks multiple times and they were not that busy. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. The chicken and waffles are ridiculously good and worth the trip on their own.

Kinda my new favorite Durham brunch place. The atmosphere is so cool. They have open concept, industrial style, a patio for meeting , plenty of large tables for big groups. Menu really does the whole Southern fusion thing well. Very wide variety of beer, wine and cocktail options. Mostly local so you get some new flavors. Only small issue, we were only a group of 4 on Sunday. Plenty of servers, place was only about half full. We sat down and it was probably close to 10 minutes before someone checked in with us to greet us. Once they showed up, everything went well. Just seemed like we weren't claimed or assigned to anyone.

11000% my favorite brunch spot in Durham. Coming from the New England area brunch isn't a thing. But here in Durham it's an art and a lifestyle and this place KILLS it. Bottomless Mimosas, I mean say no more...$12 for it seems a little steep but theres a waiter who walks around with a pitcher and is constantly refilling your mimosa!! Industrial vibe and concept was super super cool. Food was pricey but delectable. I got the stuffed French toast which came with bacon (AN ENTIRE PLATE), fruit bowl, and scrambled eggs. The portions were HUGE and I definitely had leftovers. Seating was comfy and will definitely make reservations next time to sit in the trendy room with the bar!

We ordered the shrimp pork boy and pulled pork quesadilla, wings, cauliflower and banana pudding. The food was a bit too salty and just okay. Three shrimp and cauliflower were over breaded, they'll need to fix that. It was golden brown either. These things can be corrected, but honestly it's a far cry from being authentic Southern cuisine. The place is well decorated and it is a really cool space. The server was really nice.

Edit: I'm removing a couple stars based on my last experience. I'd talked up this restaurant heavily to a friend visiting from Europe, but I was embarrassed when our experience was pretty poor. We specifically came for the pimento cheese, which is apparently no longer served at lunch, and they wouldn't make an exception. Service was lousy, even though there were no other customers. Employees were sitting and standing around not working and not paying attention to us. Eventually I had to go find someone just so we could pay our bill and leave. With that many employees, so few customers, and still no service, that points to poor management. We've dined there many times before, but this may be my last time. --------- I'll be honest. I thought the idea of a dude from Jersey coming down here to serve up southern food was ridiculous. I'll be happy to admit that I was wrong. Every time I've eaten there, we've received awesome service and AMAZING food. This is some of the best southern food I've ever had.

Absolutely the most delicious food with the most unique atmosphere. The price for brunch was reasonable and I highly recommend their chicken and waffles. Collards were delicious and the bottomless mimosas! Now I need another trip back... also, the hostess was precious! She complimented my blackpink shirt and now I wanna be her best friend 🤣 if there were more than 5 stars I'd give it!

Wow fantastic wings as a starter and the banana pudding dessert was very good as well. We were here for restaurant week which was fun. I know I ate my entire entree but I can't render what I had so it must have been good just not memorable. Waitress was friendly and patient with some of the pokey people we were with. Excellent atmosphere, I would come here again.
