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.

Heard so much about this place we decided to try it, wish we had tried somewhere else. Seated after a 20 minute wait (ok for a Saturday), ordered the food and 40 minutes later we were served with appetizers, while eating this we were then served with our entrees.......not what you want, then one of the entrees was cold.......the potato,...

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

Really good food and really goody sic but possibly the worse service I've ever gotten. Three of four dinners were delivered on time but one wasn't delivered until the other three had finished eating - and it wasn't correct. Hush puppies never delivered but charged for. Had to remind him to bring us put humus. Never once were we asked... More

We went here on Friday and Saturday night during our trip, putting it of until later after checking out a lot of other clubs. We saved money on the cover charge with coupons we got from the concierge at the Doubletree Hotel downtown. Saw the same band both nights and it was top-notch both times with a mix of blues,... More
