This past Sunday I took a buddy of mine to Sunday Brunch at Mr B’s to see what all the hype was about. We arrived around 11:30 with no reservations, and shockingly we were seated immediately. After just one glance at the menu, I realized quickly that this would be a tasty treat. I had a hard time choosing between the Blackened Swordfish and the Shrimp & Grits, so I talked my homegirl into getting the Shrimp & Grits and I ordered the other.
Dare I say that I was overly impressed by the taste of the Blackened Swordfish as well as the Shrimp & Grits. Sometimes the chef will over season fish with a blackened seasoning that ultimately dominates the whole meal. However this was the furthest thing from the reality of this meal.
In every savory bite there was a balance of taste that had my taste buds screaming for more. I guess it can be noted that half way through I was full, but just had to keep eating.
This place is a bit pricey, but is worth every penny. My motto is that a great experience is always priceless. This may not be your typical every Sunday Jazz Brunch, but it’s definitely a brunch for special occasions.
The service was great. Our food was out in a reasonable amount of time, and our server was very nice.
Bottoms up: Mr. B’s offers your standard brunch cocktails, like mimosas and bloody Marys, at a reasonable price.
