One of my new favorite places! The first time we came here was last year around November i think because it was Houston Restaurant Week. We read the reviews and decided to give it a try! Im so glad that we did. The restaurant is located in the museum district, its not that big, but enough space for their business, but eventually they will have to expand or relocate. For an appetizer we tried the fried green tomatoes, awesome! We were nervous to try them, but they really tasted good. Then for entrees i just got the chili biscuits and my friend got the friend chicken with greens and mac n cheese! The best!!! I begged for her mac n cheese! Its some of the best i ever had. Chicken was good too! The chili biscuits were small but good flavor, it was just enough for me. All around great atmosphere, friendly employees, and delicious food

As I sit here in the sun (35 minutes), no waitress, I decided to start my review. This brunch experience was tiring and demotivating. Our waitress was absolutely horrible. I never leave reviews nor do I ever get up and leave a restaurant. No organization whatsoever: table after table kept sitting and waiting to get refills for bottomless mimosas and water (we waited for 20 minutes and 35 seconds before getting a refill). We decided just to walk to the bar whenever we needed refills; after all, we are paying for it.

We asked to speak to a manager and no one showed up--so after 18 minutes of waiting, we asked for the check and decided to leave. I would never recommend this restaurant to any friend or foe. I will not visit again, I'd rather learn how to cook and slave over the fire before setting foot back in this establishment. That says a lot. Here's to my first ever review after eating out every day in Houston for the past three years. April 3, 2016. The worst day ever.

My daughter and I tried this place out today. All I can say is awesome. com. The atmosphere, the decor, the service, the Food! Our server (Janice) was great! We had the bottomless Mimosa 😆. I ordered the hot cakes with the wings and side of collard greens(delicious ). I'm not the bread pudding, person, but I devoured it. I will definitely be back.

The service and atmosphere seem nice, and the soup and salad were fresh and tasty.

However, I wasn't expecting to spend between $25 and $30 a plate for the entree AND to have small serving sizes.

I'm basing the small serving size on the sizes of the soup and the salad...I didn't stay for an entree.

I was prepared to spend the $30, but when I spend that much on dinner, I want to know that I will be full at the end of it.

I went to Lucille's today for the first time because of Aces of Taste. If you haven't heard of them you should check them out, especially Houston Foodies! My husband and I went for brunch. We both had chili biscuits, he also had the french toast and chicken wings. I had the shrimp and grits, which had more broth than I am used to but it was amazing!

Also, try the bread pudding :)

The fried green tomatoes were the BEST! I loved them. The hot rolls were super good... though I had to ask for butter for them. The crab cake Benedict was ok.. I have has better. And the burger my boyfriend has was so-so, he said. Nothing super special. The atmosphere was great, and also it did get super busy around 11/12 -- so go early for brunch on Sundays.

This is a very nice spot for a small gathering of friends. I enjoyed brunch and the menu was very unique. Fried green tomatoes, wings and waffles and green eggs and ham were great. The grits were excellently done!

Great place for a low key happy hour or southern meal. It's been several years since I've been here, but decided to stop in yesterday for a few drinks with a friend who was staying nearby. We decided to try two different drinks each, which were $3 off regular prices. All were delicious! We then split a plate of fried green tomatoes, which have a perfect kick to them! Unfortunately I had dinner plans, but will definitely return soon for dinner!

The food is classic southern food with a thoughtful, kick ass twist, and the wine is where the comfort ends. I love the food, but I hate that yet another Houston restaurateur intends to insult our intelligence by putting cheap unknown wine on the list to confuse it's customers.

Came in after taking my 5 year old nephew to Ghostbuster Day at the Children's Museum. Upon entry I advised the hostess I wanted a patio table. She took me to a table inside. I reiterated outside. The server ran into my nephew, and told the hostess why was she seating us, no apology was given. The server didn't say hello. I said it first. No name was given. She just gave me a spill about the kitchen will be closing and they were suppose to close 3 min ago but Go Ahead and Order. Lol Don't Do Me Any Favors. The door said Saturday Brunch stopped at 3pm. It was 2:50pm. I politely got up and advised her, I work in the industry and that is not how you greet a table. ( She was a caucasian female). Please train your servers on proper etiquette and friendliness. This was my third and last visit.

Go straight for the Tarrant County julep as soon as you sit down, it's amazing. The fried oyster appetizer is unique and very good. The second try the flatiron was cooked just right. The scallops were good quality and cooked to perfection. The service is good.

visited here with girlfriends for HRW dinner. sadly, the items we wanted to try were sold out when we came for 730p dinner. that defeated the purpose of really wanting to try quite a few things from the menu but nonetheless...we all enjoyed the items we tried. it wasnt soul wrenching soul food but it was cute for an upscale approach. the venue is very cozy and feels like home. if they brought in live music, it would be a really nice place to have drinks and dinner. the service was also great. overall id recommend it for southern flare dinner that has a great ambiance.

The hostess did not ask us about outdoor seating, but it has excellent outdoor atmosphere that is easy like Sunday morning.

No, seriously they had a three man band playing some old jazz tunes, very friendly and collaborative staff, and the food came out pretty quick.

The band is there every Sunday as long as the weather is between 60 - 90 degrees.

We had Green Fried Tomatoes. 5 stars.

I also tried the Veggie Eggs Benedict, it was about 4 stars.

I can not wait to try the other two.

My friend had the croissant waffles and wings, he said it was good.

Chili biscuit appetizer👌 sangria👌 French toast with wings ok. The French toast is on croissant bread, so this already sweet dish becomes even sweeter, but the chicken was delicious. Our waitress disappeared after we ordered and we didn't really see her again until we paid. I heard a live band out back as we left, i wish the hostess had told us they were there, we would have sat outside. Other than that, the overall experience was a 3.5 out of 5.

It's just okay. My friend took me for my birthday. I ordered the chicken and pancakes. My daughter ordered the Croissant french toast and chicken. For the both of our meals, 2 orange juices and a side of potatoes, it was $53.00. Overpriced. I honestly felt like I could get better pancakes at Cracker Barrel for a whole lot cheaper. Our waitress was pretty good. She did serve cold coffee and without a spoon but corrected it when asked. The standout of the meal was the potatoes, they were great. The disappointment of the meal was the fried chicken. It is fried in like a pancake batter instead of a straight flour batter. I did not care for it, and like many other reviewers have said, there was no seasoning on it! They need to change their recipe. When the batter is pulled off, you should be able to see specks of Lawry's, Slap your mama, Tony Chacere's. something!!! They should use a flour batter and fry the wings in lard or peanut oil. The result should be a airy but crunchy crispy texture not a soft pancake batter texture. I know, if I know it all then why don't open my own restaurant right? I don't know it all, but I know fried chicken like Hispanics know tamales and Chinese know Chinese food. In my opinion, this place is way overpriced for the quality of food. You would not have to drag me back kicking and screaming, but I would not make a second trip.

Found this place from a Google search. Had the fish fry and it was very delicious! Very generous portions, seasoned very well. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I enjoyed a well prepared southern meal at Lucilles. He had the steak and oysters with potatoes and broccoli and I had the smothered rabbit with collards and mashed potatoes. The food was well excellent!!! Loved the ambiance and we will be going back soon.

Wonderful fried chicken "Yardbird" and great ambiance. .loved the jazz playing in the background. They had a well-stocked and great looking bar but our group did not take advantage at lunch. .but a well above average menu....from scallops to chef prepared fish of the day..Ox tail and bone marrow..this is not just any restaurant.

Great food and atmosphere. Can be crowded and possible wait times of 20-30 minutes. It's worth the wait. Fantastic for brunch. Not the cheapest of places. Service is excellent and friendly.

I'd give it 10!!! As full-time RV'ERS, we've eaten @ many restaurants all over the country, but enjoyed Lucille's the most! The food was outstanding & our server, Taylor, was very efficient & friendly!

These guys came out to our event and everyone LOVED the food and service! The BBQ Brisket sandwich is delicious. Great texture and great sauce. The mac and cheese, peach cobbler and what someone called "the best chicken strips I've ever had" made quite an impression. Thanks for coming out. I highly

The ambience inside and on the patio is outstanding. The food was flavorful and well seasoned. Comparable to "Marks" or "Tony's" on Kirby. Very nice. The only negatives: the staff was more pretentious than the guests (minus EJ, shift manager, he gets it, class act); The appetizers and starters are plated nicely but not functional and; Bartender made a lousy martini, however, I sensed he was new. I'll definitely be back.

When I say I HAD THE BEST MAC N CHEESE I mean I had the BEST! The service was phenomenal. I unfortunately forgot our waitress name but she was very knowledgeable on what we should get. The Fried Green Tomatoes are soooo good! I forget what sauce they topped it with but man do yourself a favor and order you some! Step on in you out of towners! You will not be disappointed with this Southern full of goodness food!

We ordered fish, bird and bone marrow. Really tasty. Just the bread come with bone marrow is too oily. The spicy drink is good too

Great service and food. I get the croissant French toast and either sangria or garden drink. They never disappoint. Also they accept reservations via open table app.

My wife and I went here for a Sunday brunch at 10:30 am. There were empty tables, no line to sit down, but we were reminded before we sat down that we only had the table for 90 minutes. There was still no line when we left an hour later. We heard other customers get told this too, so it isn't like we were being singled out as potential campers, it's a policy!

So we felt rushed before we sat down. Hurry up and choose what to drink, eat, hope it comes out fast, scarf it down and get out before you're kicked out.

Ordered drinks, appetizer, and meals within 5 minutes, because if we didn't would we have had time to eat it?

Fried green tomatoes were great! (also the only reason they get 2 stars instead of 1). Shrimp and grits needed salt, garlic, anything? They're pretty confident in the chefs because there is no salt or pepper on the tables. If not for the sliced sausage on top it would not have had any flavor. Did I mention I was eating fast? Wife's crabcake benedict was good (I didn't try them but she says so).

Mimosas were empty for 20 minutes, but water refills were really fast.

I feel like if they drop the 90 minute seating policy, it would have been much better. Maybe I would have asked questions about what we were ordering. Or had time to read the menu through.

There are a lot of GREAT brunch spots in H-town. This (to me) isn't one of them.

This place is gross. Heard so much about how great the food was so gave it a try. Wasn't impressed at all. I order the steak and eggs. The steak was like eating leather and when I informed the waiter about it, he offered to bring me something else. I then ordered the wings. They were so bad I could eat them. Absolutely no seasoning on them. I will never go back to this place. The only positive thing I can say is the music was good.

The atmosphere was cozy. The food was really good. Everything from the chicken to the lemonade. The crust on the chicken was different, it was a good mixture of sweet and savory. The only thing is that we brought our children, and it can get pricey when you start adding side items like bacon and eggs. Overall, I would come back.

Just finished the Tour of Italy at Lucille's. Great atmosphere and friends. Amazingly so, the white wines were better than the reds. The pairings were great, even though I could only eat a few bites (wheat allergy). Will definitely return...reservations for the 4th.

Fantastic food and wonderful atmosphere! We had the butternut squash, fried green tomatoes, collared greens and cornbread; all delicious!!!! There was live jazz music too! I really wanted to give this place 5 stars, however, we didn't have the most attentive waiter and spending so much time waiting for them to unapologetically check on us really detracted from the experience.

Very welcoming, great food, great music, great staff, great location, and great service. I loved their grits the best I ever had. The only negative is that the pancake batter was messed up and our pancakes were burnt. The manager came over right away to take care of it and asked what I wanted as a replacement. Considering the rest of my party had their food already the food came out quick and hot.

Wonderful restaurant a bit hidden in the heart of the Museum District. Specializing in Southern fare, with a rich historical background, they're nonetheless willing to experiment with new things and very accommodating for dietary restrictions. I enjoyed a happy hour with a group there; the restaurant has a semi-private alcove that's great for groups, as well as a private dining area upstairs.

This is not a very "southern" place (and I've lived in / dined in South and North Carolina for almost four years). The shrimp and grits didn't have any flavor. The shrimps were nice, fresh and juicy, but the flavor just wasn't there. The eggs Benedict was also bland, and the side salad that it came with was bitter. It seems that the locals get the fried chicken, so that might be better than what we got.

Cons:

The flavor

Live music was way too loud

Long wait time if you don't have a reservation (so make a last minute reservation if needed or they'll take a long time to seat you)

Pros:

Good service

Fresh interests

Has vegetarian options

Trendy place. Creative dishes inspired by comfort food. Let's be clear, it's not a meat and three kind of place.

Friend green tomatoes were perfect. Chili biscuits were different, glad I tried them. Scallops did not disappoint. A bit pricey but a fun detour from the normal chains.

The fact that people are calling this great southern food is appalling and laughable. I expected to taste the best soul food and it was a total miss. The only reason I am giving this 2 stars is because the fried green tomatoes were delicious! That's the ONLY thing I enjoyed from this restaurant. The shrimp & grits were a miss and the flavor was off putting (if you want amazing shrimp & grits go to Dish Society)

I love the ambiance and the food here is makes my tummy smile. Food here never goes to waste. Let me not forget the bartender Raven and his crafty mixes satisfies the palate and keeps me lit every time.

My first time here was when our company had our holiday dinner and I must say I definitely will be returning. Their menu is catered towards southern comfort.

We had the fried green tomato, butternut squash, collard greens and mashed potatoes as the sides. They were well seasoned and left me wanting more. The fried chicken was superb, lightly breaded and had a great crunch! The chili biscuits were phenomenal and a must try. My favorite was the smothered steak. Perfectly cooked medium rare tenderloin with duck fat gravy.

I would like to come back again and try their famous butcher burger that all my friends rave about.

Nice Eclectic Atmosphere. A Change from the usual Dining Spots. Didn't see Live Musicians. Thinking it was a Jazz Bar Type of Dining Spot.

Several Large Parties in Dining Rooms. Helpful Waitstaff and Management interacting with Dinner Guest. Fair Service. Nice Serving Staff. Delicious Food, but Pricey Dinnertime Fare. Lunch and Brunch Menus are available with more affordable options.

Ample Free Parking across the Street from Restaurant.

Good Spot for a Special Occasion or just to Sample some Fusion Soul Food.

Loved it! Tiny place close to home. Chili biscuits, while not what I expected, were delicious. Little pillowy biscuits with a bit of actual chili and covered with melted cheese. I had the shrimp and grits. The grits were perfect and the sherry tomato sauce gave them a unique flavor. My fiance thought the boiled shrimp were boring and should have been blackened to set them apart. But they were big and cooked well so no complaints from me. The jazz on Sunday morning was also a nice addition. Only recommendation I have is to make reservations if you go on a Sunday after 11am.

Great place. Good shrimp and grits the collard greens were the best I have had in Houston. If you are doing Sunday Brunch the Country Benedict was a total winner. Burger and fries was good though the fries (creamy inside and crisp on the outside) needed a little more seasoning. Very good Fried Green Tomatoes. Again...get the collard greens.

We had no idea what we were walking into when we stepped into this place, we had just been at the museums all day and needed a bite to eat. The food was absolutely outstanding the scallops were amazing and the chili biscuits for one of a kind. I really like to open truss ceiling inside definitely had that southern flavor I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wants to have a quality meal and isn't worried about prices. The waiter was an extremely awesome guy as well.

Was told there was a 20 minute wait. The restaurant has an inadequate waiting area, so we went outside, where it's less congested. After 20 minutes with no contact, we went back in to make sure we weren't skipped. Inside, there were the same people waiting from 20 minutes earlier. Some of them had arrived before us. When I asked the hostess about our status, she explained that we we're third... behind two groups with reservations. Clearly that would be longer than 20 minutes, so we left. 45 minutes later, we received a text that our table was ready. They should have been honest about that wait time from the start.

If you are expecting home style dining go somewhere else. The staff was fantastic and the food was good but definitely not a mom and pop diner as some reviews would suggest. That being said it would be a great place to visit sans children.

Wonderful service! Loved the atmosphere (relaxed, intimate, romantic). The food was not only well presented, it tasted fantastic. I got the Ahi tuna salad. I was a bit disappointed that they did not have a selection of beer on tap but the cocktails were delicious. Great place to go on a date.

Update: Second visit yesterday (Friday lunch) and this place just gets better. We couldn't sit outside - that's just for weekends, apparently (Lucille's, please consider extending that to Fridays too!) - but the indoor section was lovely, and the food is just WONDERFUL. Fried green tomatoes, scallops, chili biscuits, all complete winners. Lovely friendly service and a drinks menu that was almost impossible to choose from. I'd add a star if I could :)

Original review: Yes please! Got invited to a last-minute brunch and wasn't sure what to expect at Lucille's, but it certainly wasn't a glorious big sitting space out back with shaded seating, kitchen garden, and covered bar area. What perfect place for late-March brunch! Our party of four tried four different dishes and a number of drinks, and there wasn't a dud amongst them. Service was attentive and friendly and there were so many fabulous-sounding items on the menu that it was hard to choose. Highly recommended!

Found this spot in a random brunch article and the menu looked pleasing so we gave it a try. Glad we did as the staff was very friendly and helpful. Brunch drinks were great with a special shout out to Woke Punch (very spicy). A very diverse brunch menu ranging from multiple Eggs Benedict offerings to shrimp and grits or even a burger. We sat out in the back garden and in early spring this was a true pleasure.

Lucille’s was amazing! You have to get the fried Green Tomatoes 🍅 They were superb! My daughter had the French bread croissants spiked berries and wings. I had the fried fish with eggs & potatoes. The atmosphere was so cool 😎 It’s in an old home restored as a restaurant. Plenty of parking across the street & the Jazz band playing was out of this world!!! We will definitely go there again.

The atmosphere and customer service was good and the hostess was friendly. The food was beautifully plated, HOWEVER, we were so disappointed. Each of our meals were bland in taste. I had the shrimp and grits with no flavor. My husband had the french toast (at least that was good) and chicken wings, fried hard and missing the basics of salt and pepper. My son's pancake was hard and tasted like flour and water, no sugar or buttermilk. We've heard great things about the restaurant, so we were unpleasantly surprised. Perhaps it was an off day for the cooks on Easter Sunday. We would have liked to support this establishment, but unfortunately, we cannot and we have no plans to try it again.

Interesting drink menu. Brunch food was great. Service was good. Sat outside on a beautiful day. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Will be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Sunday brunch at Lucille's. The shrimp and grits were good, but I wanted a little more salt in the grits before added the reduction sauce. My fried green tomatoes were pure perfection. My husband was not crazy about his fish for 2 reasons. What kind is it...still a mystery and the corn meal batter is super light...which didn't allow for the chicken to be fried hard. Our drinks were great. We would most definitely go back just to try some other items

Great lunch spot with delicious food. The servers were friendly, attentive, and prompt. We opted to try most of the sides tapas-style and non disappointed: the chili biscuits were buttery and just the right spice, brussel sprouts were crisp and savory, and the baked mac and cheese was divine. Others in our party vouched for the shrimp and grits, too. Overall, a great dining experience!

The two best items that we tried were the fried green tomatoes and the chili biscuits. The service was great and we liked the casual homey feel. But we found the food a little bland for our liking. So good food but nothing mind blowing.

My bridal shower was thrown here in a private room upstairs. The room had its own restroom and the environment was truly private. The food was absolutely amazing!! Excellent!!! We had fried chicken wings, fried fish, French toast, greens, mashed and other potatoes, and watermelon salad. The staff was so wonderful and friendly. They were there to assist in any way possible. What a great experience in service. I was truly impressed and can't wait to take more people back with me.

Nice flexible menu with dishes that range vegetarian-like options to meat eaters, but availability depends on the time of the day, which limits you greatly. Creative dishes. Great Service. I wasn't impressed enough to return.

Came here during Sunday brunch but came a bit too early while the entertainment was still being set up. It was also restaurant week in Houston when I came by but right when they opened, the place was already teeming with customers and there was almost a wait for just one person at the bar. They were able to accommodate me quickly and put in my order.

I had the fried Green tomatoes as an appetizer which was great. The cornmeal crust was nice and crunch while being well seasoned. The little bit of goat cheese and hot sauce added nicely to the flavor as well.

For an entree, I ordered the shrimp and grits. This was unlike and shrimp and grits I've ever had as there was a light seafood broth underneath. The grits weren't soggy but also weren't too rich while being just the right amount of delicious. Shrimp were well cooked and absolutely massive.

Decor was extremely trendy but the lighting was a bit dim and was quite noisy. Staff was extremely attentive and friendly.

This review is in regards to brunch only as I haven't tried dinner. I had the fried catfish, greens and substituted the breakfast potatoes for grits. The food came out hot and fresh. Our waiter was very courteous and attentive. We went on a Sunday and it was packed so I do suggest making reservations ahead of time. They have a nice jazz band playing and the mimosas we're good also. Give them a try if you're in the area.

Hands-down one of the BEST restaurants in Houston. I have witnessed friends saying they just had the best meal of their life in this restaurant. Lucille's is well-loved for their fried chicken and shrimp & grits. I'm vegetarian, and everything I've tried has been excellent. Lucille's gourmet touches equal a pricey meal, but WOW, the food is so fantastic! Great vibes, reservations are the best way to go.

Omg! Where do I begin? The character and charm of this restaurant was very historical and inviting. I loved the old school photographs on the walls. It reminded me of my grandma's house. We had brunch and the food was absolutely fantastic. Chicken, greens, French toast and grits and more. The mimosas were very tasty and strong. The atmosphere and the customer service was on point. I will be returning next time I'm in Houston 🙌🏾

I was in town for a concert and was looking for a place to grab a good brunch. From the positive reviews online I was looking forward to eating here. I am sad to say the reviews were not accurate. When my party and I arrived, the place was buzzing and the hostess was a little backed up. Although she was backed up, she maintained her composure and kept a pleasant attitude. There was a jazz band playing that gave the place a feeling of being in a bistro in New Orleans and that was great. Once we were seated, we ordered drinks and enjoyed the atmosphere. The drinks were pretty good and the menu offered something for everyone in my party. Our waitress appeared overwhelmed and was not doing a good job of juggling her tables. My party and I were growing annoyed with our waitress' inability to handle multiple tables, so we asked a gentlemen passing by to take out order. The gentlemen, who we assumed was the manager or owner, came over and took our order; He was very pleasant so we felt a bit better going forward. Then our food came. I was a part of a party of 5 and everyone ordered something different. Everyone at the table was dissatisfied with the food. The shrimp and grits were bland and contained too much broth. The chicken wings had absolutely no seasoning, not even pepper, which made the wings taste like you were eating flour. The French toast was slightly burn and was bland as well. I had the pancakes which looked amazing, but when I cut into them, they were not cooked in the middle and still doughy. At this point, we all wanted to pay and leave. These place is great if you want to go somewhere to have drinks and enjoy a live band, but the food is unbelievably bland and depending on your waitress, service will be subpar. The live band and drinks is the reason I gave this restaurant this any stars.

Holy Ox Tail and Bone Marrow .... if you don’t know, now you know. Stop here. It’s delicious. Highly recommend the “Chicken Fried Oysters” as they are an experience of their own. Grab the house favorite “pork and beans” for a pleasant (to say the least) surprise. Cheers!

Had a party of 7 and was in and out within an hour on a Saturday. The servers were very nice and the food was superb. We had the crab cake Benedict and the croissant French toast- both were amazing! I will definitely be coming back as soon as possible.

Ate here not too long ago and the place is neat with great service. I was hungry after walking a lot near Hermann park and surrounding gardens. The food did not disappoint and the drinks were good. Kinda hard finding a restaurant near that area, but this will now be a regular :)

Pretty good food. The service was average. The crowd is mixed. The only problem I encountered was that the menu stated that I could have my eggs cooked any style and I ordered boiled eggs only to be told that they didn’t serve boiled eggs. There’s plenty of room for parking.

Amazing soul food, cooked perfectly. The best hot rolls since my Grandma's. If this is the sort of food you're looking for, you won't do better than this anywhere in the world. I can't wait to go back!

Came for brunch. The front room is charming and welcoming. We were seated between the back of the bar and the kitchen in the back. The service was excellent. The food was done well but seemed to lack a little something. Just to pick a few nits: the mimosa wasn't quite cold, the bloody Mary was generous and had a great garnish and a unique horseradish flavor but somehow lacked bite, the Hollandaise sauce had perfect texture but hardly any discernible lemon flavor, and if there was any dressing on the salad greens that accompanied the main course, I couldn't taste it. On the other hand, the fried green tomatoes were indeed a treat, as others have noted. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly. All in all, we had a pleasant experience but not outstanding. Will probably give them another try, maybe for lunch.

This was such a pleasant surprise. The mood was relaxed yet classy, the waitstaff were nice, and the food was excellent. Plates are $20-30 with steaks around $40. The special was a smoked steak, which was a first for me and absolutely delicious!

We got here by pure chance, and ended up with the best meal we've had in Houston. Cozy atmosphere, wonderful service and excellent food. They also fixed a burger, off the menu, for my daughter. Highly recommended!
