The atmosphere was great and food was delicious!

Although the restaurant was not packed, the service seemed a bit lacking. While this did provide for a relaxed atmosphere, there were times we could have used another drink (bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, after all). Additionally, it seemed odd that those of us who ordered dishes with eggs were not offered a choice of cooking temperature. I selected the pigs feet hash, on top of which the egg may have been borderline undercooked. Not the end of the world, but had I paid the full check amount, I would have expected more.

Grapefruit mimosas are spectacular - as is the steak and egg entree!

Excellent service
