  • Spinach Salad, Pork Chops...Its all great.
  • The Mac & Cheese and bread puddings are phenomenal.
  • Came her on a recommendation for the Mac & Cheese, and we were disappointed. The breaded trout is a solid alternative. For dessert, the bread pudding is phenomenal. Traditional feel, great service.
  • Hands down and up the best Chicken and Waffles you'll have in Birmingham. Great service, good atmosphere and exceptional value in the prices. Will be back again to try the rest of the menu! Lol
  • Dark chocolate bread pudding is a must. Shrimp and grits phenomenal. The Fish and Chips were impressive.
  • Three Little Pigs Mac and Cheese is the Best
  • Three little pigs! Just wish it existed in Nashville. Kraft who?
  • Classic standbys are Mac and cheese or Chicken and Waffles Before you make a final decision, wait to hear about the daily specials - usually made a local ingredients!
  • Chicken and waffle.
  • Chicken and waffle!
  • The special bacon is some of the best bacon I've had
  • Its easy to see why this Birmingham joint is famous for its mac and cheesethe Three Little Pigs is laced with prosciutto and local bacon, then topped with pulled pork and fried onions.
  • The Parmesean crusted trout was awesome! For the appetizer we tried the Fancy bacon which did not disappoint! Definitely try it when you are there!
  • Pleasant little gastro spot. Nice local beer selection, good wines and service. Had the Crispy Duck, which was cooked properly (for a leg quarter) although the Soy glaze was a bit salty for my taste.
  • Mac and cheese ... and turkey club were excellent .. and more than we could eat ...
