Great experience, food and atmosphere! The staff was very attentive even though it was packed and great music played all evening. Chicken was crispy but light. Portions were generous. Lots of great food. I suggest the mini pork tenderloin sandwiches for an appetizer or a meal! Will be going back lots and lots

Went here for lunch with my boss a few weeks after they opened. The place was packed but the wait wasn't very long. The wait staff was great and the food was even better!! It's a little on the pricey side but it's totally worth it. We ordered the biscuits, which were melt in your mouth good, the fried chicken sandwich, and we split the mac and cheese side. I wish I had room for dessert! I will be back for sure!

Before I get into the negative, here's the positive. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and the atmosphere of the restaurant is very good. That's about it. As for the bad, where do I start. I went with my significant other for lunch, she ordered the leg and thigh along with the twice baked potato and I ordered the leg and thigh along with the Carolina gold rice. Both of our chicken dishes were overcooked, extremely dry, and underseasoned. The chicken almost like it had been fried, cooled off, then reheated in a microwave. Her twice baked potatoes was very small and lacked seasoning. I think my rice was the only food either of us liked between all the things that we ordered. What really annoys me though is the pricing. If you want to be an upscale fried chicken restaurant, more power to you but if you're going to do that then you need to absolutely nail the chicken. The menu made me expect great things from the food and the actual food that we were given did not deliver at all on the promise from the menu. The main reason we went to this restaurant for the first time was because of the good reviews. I don't know if the rest of the reviews just don't know what good fried chicken is or if it's an even worse problem, inconsistent quality. Regardless we won't be back. For the $50, before tip, I paid for our food we could have gone to The Eagle on Mass Ave., ate like kings for cheaper, and gotten much better fried chicken in the process.
