Father's Day brunch was $25 and was worth less than half that. The gravy was pure Sysco, the scrambled eggs were a solid dry mass, the bacon thin-cut and cheap tasting, the chicken fried steak tough. The fresh seafood and the lox were both quite good, as were the eggs Benedict and the flat-bread pizza. I didn’t try the hand-cut meat. They also weren’t serving mimosas as part of the brunch price, however, nor the champagne (which their web site claims is part of the brunch but was apparently removed special for Father’s Day). The wait staff was reasonably helpful and prompt, but the place was less than half full at 12:30 pm, so this wasn't surprising. By the time we were done almost all of the deserts were gone (there were maybe 10 items left, most the same, and all of the hot desert pans were completely empty, it looked pretty sad). All-in-all for the price I was severely disappointed.
Louie's Italian in Meridian will undoubtedly also have big Easter additions to their normally wonderful Sunday Brunch.
