First Date with my new boyfriend. The gumbo was excellent! Just the right amount of spice and heat!. The BBQ chicken and ribs just fall off the bone in sweet-spicy delight! The house band is over the top and includes the crowd. I love it!

Listened to great music from 8:00 till after 2:00 when our son called & wanted to know why were weren't home. It's fun to get old. The music was fantastic, but since we don't drink alcohol, we never saw our waiter again.

Great atmosphere and great music. A great time for all. Recommend starting upstairs. Great little hideaway to jam out to some awesome live music.

We tried a lot of different foods. The appetizers are great, especially the fried pickles!! The smoked chicken was ok.....not as done as I would like but it was pretty good. My husband got the fried catfish and said it was good. The music was wonderful!! We could have stayed all night just listening to it. And you HAVE to... More
