Neil St. Blues is hosting a Juneteenth Sunday brunch buffet from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 19th. The restaurant will offer an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring Southern-style cuisine for $25 a person. Favorite dishes like fried chicken, waffles, fried catfish, hand-cut collard greens, mac 'n cheese, shrimp 'n grits, hashbrown casserole, Britt's rum bread puddin', and more will be available.
I love the food at Neil St. Blues. The fried shrimp here are my favorite shrimp in town, and the shrimp 'n grits is incredibly delicious. The celebratory brunch will have a 90 minute maximum table time to ensure that all patrons can enjoy.
