  • Hen Quarter special
  • Mostly a meh restaurant. Pretty popular according to online reviews (ie Yelp). Tried the Chicken salad which had pretty good presentation. The fried chicken was ok but pricey for the quality.
  • The chicken and waffles here is like none other! Their savory waffle makes me want to come back every time were in Old Town.
  • Got the sampler: a bed of corn/lima bean succotash with three meats: fried & roast chicken plus catfish. Catfish was crazy salty, chicken was good, nothing special. Thursday night trivia = fun times.
  • Chicken and Waffles was awesome. I don't know what they put in the waffles but they were great! The fried chicken pieces were huge and tasty. Nice place and good service.
  • For the price I expected a little better. The drinks are good but the chicken was pretty dry.
  • 4pc Chicken and Waffles w/Arnold Palmer to wash. Amazing!
  • Food was good the service was not. Host was rude and dismissive. They had a private event so the host said, only room at the bar. Which was fine with us. But had a rude tone and made a face. WTH?
  • Fried pickles and cocktails are perfect.
  • Chicken and waffles! Waffles are savory rather than sweet. Be warned: portions are large: it's a half a chicken! Belly pops are also delicious.
  • The waffle that comes with the chicken and waffles was the most amazing, delightful waffle I've ever had.
  • Loved the chicken and pecan pie
  • The service is outstanding, & the menu selections are very good.
  • No tips regarding the fantastic weekend Bloody Mary choices?!?
  • Not great for vegetarians (or at least not me!), but everyone else seemed to enjoy the southern fried comfort food!
  • This place was not good. I had a pretty bad experience and we didnt eat our cold burnt food.
