This place is an absolute trap for clueless tourists who don't know better. Inflated prices, rubbery food, watered down drinks, and terrible cheesy DJs. A dozen better options all within a block walk.

Great drink menu. Like chilling in a southern antique store. Good mood lighting for knocking back a few whiskeys and having a solid meal.

Sons of Essex is one of my favorite brunch spots; it had a really chill vibe, the atmosphere was dimly lit, the DJ time traveled with the hits, the mosh pit in the restaurant was entertaining with people dancing and overall brunch was amazing. I went with a group of friends and we all agreed the service was great and we enjoyed all of our courses. I had the SOE pizza as my main course it was delish bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese and other goodness.

I had the duck hash for brunch and it was pretty good, but under seasoned. The service was very good.

Great food, great drinks, fun crowd. This place reminds me of an old-fashioned Southern comfort-type place. Wooden treatments and a long bar set a good tone to start. Their drinks are well chosen and made even better. The food is solid across the board- anything you get will be good. Their brunch tends to be a total party: larger crowds, hip-hop music, lots of food and drinks flowing. Fun. Recommended for when you want to have a good time.

A Cheese and Truffle Haven. Need I say more? Once the Mason Dixon and fitted with a mechanical bull sits a restaurant of speakeasy motif. Whether you are seeking brunch, lunch or dinner, Sons of Essex can fill the gaping void in your stomach. SOE can basically lather you up in anything you ever dreamed of (if your dreams start and stop where mine do: cheese and truffle). Need I say more? The exterior has the look of a deli in the front which leads into a dark, magnificent prohibition era, wide-open playing field for eating and drinking. From a cocktail menu made to make to you slur to a food menu made to make you drool (I repeat, cheese and truffle). Now that you have a nice image of me in your head, I suppose I should actually provide some insight on what you may eat. Long Time Gone – My Favorite Dishes Disappeared! I’ll still tell you about them… - all time favorite grilled cheese once lived here – it was a mac and cheese grilled cheese. Yes, this is not a lie or a figment of my imagination it happened. However, It is currently not on the menu but I have hope it will return. (please?) - Fried Chicken TV Dinner! When have you ever ordered a TV Dinner a restaurant? HungryMan watch out because this fried chicken doesn’t mess around. Truffle -Grilled Cheese - Sautéed mushrooms, arugula, tomato‏ soup - Yes, yes, yes. Truffle. - Hen and Waffles… Okay now on to what you can still order and that I have taste tested, comments included below: -Truffle Mushroom Pizza - Three cheese blend, roasted mushrooms, arugula - Yes, yes, yes. Truffle. -Mac N Cheese Omelette - Gruyere, vbc mascarpone, elbow macaroni - Skip this, sounds better than it is. -Truffle Mac N Cheese – soe truffle sauce, parmesan gratin -Think like Nike when you approach this just do it! -Essex St. Burger - Parmesan truffle fries, soe slaw – It’s a good burger BUT these FRIES are amaaaazing. The cocktail menu to is refined and delicious, personally I like the Peddler’s Lemonade.

Love this place! I always have a hard time leaving because the music is so good. I like the ambiance and the people that do go aren't as stuffy as other places. The food is great too and the management always goes out of their way to make it feel inviting and thank you for your patronage.

A cool bar but a little overpriced. The music was awesome the times I went. On certain nights they have DJs Andrew Andrew. They were so much fun! Played a little of everything. Too bad the dance floor is small and the security guard kept getting mad at us for dancing in between the tables.
