Even with coronavirus restrictions me and my girlfriend had a really good time. The ambiance, service, and food made me truly feel like I was at an actual dining experience pre-Covid for the first time since quarantine started. Hats off to the chef I will definitely be returning soon. (We sat inside, by the way).

What great service and food! When walking in with my fiancé and her friend they overheard us talking wedding plans, next thing we knew we had glasses of champagne (on the house) in front of us. Food was amazing, and when they found out my fiancé’s friend was having her bday, they gave her a free desert! Love the food, but service always goes above and beyond. Big thanks to a great spot!

Wonderful dinner and drinks as always. Service was great too. They have opened a 2nd patio seating area on the sidewalk around the corner from the original patio. Its not as charming as the original one, but its great that it provides extra seating and since you're on the sidewalk you do get good people watching. Highly recommend for a fun dinner out!

We had the sweetest server, I think her name was Katie. She knew the menu well and was able to give recommendations. The food was delicious! The biscuits are a must and I had the burrata salad. Drinks were yummy too! Great atmosphere and would certainly return!

A wonderful evening outdoor dining at B&B. Lovely, romantic setting on the patio.

Loved the grilled octopus and the BBQ shrimp. Along with the recommend Muscadet.

This restaurant is doing a wonderful job keeping its patrons safe and satisfied!

This wasn’t my first time, but I was my first time as a vegan. Trying to put together a meal was a bit challenging at first but it all worked out in the end. Everything was good.. grilled corn, garden salad, watermelon beignets were awesome and my cousin enjoyed the fried chicken and waffles.
