It was way back in June when we first announced that Kaskaid Hospitality Group, the company behind Crave, Figlio 2.0, and Union, had bought up the former Old Chicago on Hennepin and planned to turn it into their next big project. 

After a name-the-restaurant contest, an overhaul of the interior, and many deviled egg recipes tested, BoneYard Kitchen & Bar is set to open today at 11 a.m. So what can we expect food-wise from this Southern comfort concept, and perhaps most importantly, when is happy hour?

See also:

It's a meat-heavy menu: fried chicken, hot fried chicken, chicken and waffles, chicken fried ribs (not kidding), brisket, pulled pork, dry-rubbed ribs, and bacon-wrapped duck meatloaf, to name a few. But it sounds like all these proteins are being handled by a pro. BoneYard's executive chef, Jason Bush, grew up in Georgia and Florida and trained extensively in different regional barbecue styles, all of which seem to converge on BoneYard's menu. 

There's also a number of New Orleans-inspired dishes, including a fried shrimp po' boy, cornmeal fried cod, grits, and gumbo. 

The bar is stocked and ready for happy hour, which will be every Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. 

Based on the many smoked meats and the big-time selection of beer and bourbon, it seems that BoneYard is going for a more casual, kitschy version of Butcher & the Boar. We'll have to go see for ourselves. Bourbon and a biscuit sound good to anyone else?

Went on opening night.  Had a great time and a great meal.  Not the run of the mill burger, pasta and steak fair.  For starters, our family tried the Fried mac and cheese bites, andouille corn dog babies and pastors plate - all fabulous.  Pimento cheese - who knew it was so great!  Dinner was the Sweet Tea Brined Grilled chicken for me, Duck meatloaf for my husband and the Shrimp and Grits for my daughter.  more than enough for all of us to "share" and clean plates all around.  Finished off with dessert - pecan pie (my personal favorite), hummingbird cake and peach cobbler.  Liked it so much we went back for brunch today.  Great staff - very attentive and personable!

Great until 10pm and then it turns into typical Lake and Hennepin crowd. Playing "employee or patron" was fun due to all the flannels everywhere.

Sounds awesome. I'm from down South so it's nice to see a menu like this. Consider adding crawfish and corn fritters!

I thought the servers were nice, but the food was not so great (brisket & po'boy).

The service was great, but the food that I had ... not so great. Maybe it will take some time before they get it down.

These guys don't know shit about food. All the way back to bellanotte they have dressed up nightclubs as restaurants. Bland boring food poorly executed...

They own the figlio's concept why didn't they bring back figlio's? The fact that it is " the shops of west end" is really sad.

Oh and their "amazing" 13 hour smoked texas style brisket was dry as a bone. The name boneyard suits the place

It's not the greatest out of the gate. Soggy heavily breaded fried chicken. Just another place that bros can add even more noise pollution for uptown residents
