This is one of my favorite restaurants in Tallahassee. They will accommodate any special needs, likes or challenges. Food is prepared every day and much is locally sourced. Skilled chefs who are great teacher (to watch). Excellent variety of food from seafood to vegetarian. Their pulled pork is always wonderful. Desserts by Sylvia are unusual, beautiful and always delicious. I... More

I have only been there once, because I would not go back. Primary reason is that I did not like the food or the atmosphere. Could not talk with people at table because live music was loud, and the place was dirty looking.

Had lunch here today with a friend. Sat on the patio under fans and enjoyed a great meal. We both had pecan crusted trout with potatoes and creamed spinach. The piece de resistance is always their desert. We had a slice of layer cake with lemon filling and meringue icing. Service was good. Get there early to find a seat.... More

Like some of the other best places to eat in Tallahassee, the initial outside appearance and name do not impress... but the food and service are AWESOME. Eclectic, creative, and ...yeah...COOL!! sorry.. I mean "Kool"). Haven't had a bad meal there yet, and Iv'e been going there for 10 yrs+. Highly recommended.

There's an upbeat arty vibe here. The energy is undeniable. It's the kind of place that raises expectations. You know, "these guys are on to something!" Well, the food does not disappoint! There's a crazy variety of options on the menu, and they are all (according to my 5 guests and me) de.lic.ious. Nothing more to say. Go. Enjoy!

Have dined here many times for lunch. The patio is always a good choice. They have a good selection of wines and craft beers. I had a Full Sail Pale Ale (you just can't beat the taste of an Oregon craft brew). Their menu changes daily with unique choices every day. I had fish tacos served on corn tortillas with... More

Bar overlooks kitchen and you get to see the food go out. Menu rotates and is always interesting. Solid, no frills meal every time I've been. Visited 3 times. Every meal has been great.

The menu is a single page and it is never the same from week to week. You have limited choices but all the choices are top grade. When I want to celebrate any occasion this is where I go. Never been disappointed and have learned to take risks with new food items. It always pays off. Get there early if... More
