This lively South Beach eatery serves up inventive takes on Southern comfort fare along with a celebrated bourbon program in a sophisticated, down-home setting.
“Beer, bourbon, blues, and Southern American fare, at an affordable price point, in a fetching farmhouse environment — a distinct and integrated vision completely realized.” – Miami New Times
“There's a helluva lot of Southern lovin' from the Lowcountry at this lively and funky South Beach spot. Miami's A-list puts calorie-counting aside for decadent nights filled with comfort foods and innovative drinks. The family-style menu is divided between "small plates," "the bird," "plates," and "fixins," but have no doubt the "the bird" takes center stage (or plate) here. You'll rave about Mama's chicken biscuits, the chicken ’n’ watermelon ’n’ waffles, and Llewellyn's fine fried chicken, which requires a 27-hour marination and slow-cooking process. Oh, and then there are the sides, like house-cut fries with a buttermilk dipping sauce and bacon salt or the super-creamy macaroni and cheese. Don't plan on hitting the beach in a bikini the next day.” – Fodor’s
“Homey touches are all over the menu. Biscuits are baked fresh every half-hour or more; bacon is house-cured — an eight-day process repeated several times a week. Blueberry lemon pie arrives in the cast-iron skillet in which it was baked.” – New York Times
Rural touches abound in the 140-seat space, from jars of pickled vegetables to blues tunes to the salvaged items from grandma’s kitchen adorning the beer taps. The beams on the ceiling are reclaimed from a North Carolina farm; whitewashed brick walls, long, tufted banquettes, and butcher block tables complete the rustic-chic farmhouse aesthetic. The (acclaimed) bourbon-centric bar sits at one end of the restaurant, while an open kitchen runs the length of the place. Outside, a patio offers additional seating.
