“Come hungry” to this “excellent” Williamsburg Southerner where “interesting takes” on “good ol’” American food are served up in “plentiful” portions; though it’s “perennially packed” for brunch, the “reasonable” bills, “jovial” staff and “homey” vibe all add up to one “lucky find.”

We had a great Mother's Day brunch. One of the few places that accepts reservations for large groups for brunch. The staff is great and patient (I had my 3 young children with me). The drinks were great...highly recommend the sparkling cocktail. And the food was great. The lumberjack breakfast, shrimp and grits, and the chicken and waffles were really good. Definitely get the biscuits, they have to be the best in Brooklyn.

Easily the best brunch spot ever. Biscuits and sausage gravy are excellent, and the Fried Pork chop is out of this world. I take family and friends here all the time. Prices are extremely fair too, especially for the amazing quality of the food. Service is also good.

Came for brunch when literally every other place in Brooklyn had a 1.5 hour wait. Here was only a 30 minute wait but we ended up getting seats at the bar. The chicken and waffles were SUPER good and I loved the grapefruit with it adding a fresh/sweet touch as the top had a sugar glaze. Drinks were pretty pricey so It’s not your typical bottomless place BUT would definitely come back just to try more food. Also pretty cool/chill atmosphere with good music
