A friend and I got a late dinner after arriving in Hartford. Unfortunately my friend had a health episode so I can't really remember the dining experience. However, I want to give a special shout out to the staff who helped my friend when she took ill. They even offered to help me walk her to our hotel next door.... More

The atmosphere here is great, especially on a Fri/Sat night. The good is great and the menu is eclectic and suits all tastes! I have been here a few times and not been disappointed once.

Made reservations for party of five. When we arrived after a show in Hartford, we were seated immediately and the service was good. Very tasty food but 3 out of the 5 plates served were cold. Atmosphere was good and not too noisy.

This a a reat place for Southern cooking up north. The corn bread that comes with meals is the moistest I every had. Great place to hear Blues and they do a fanastic Fat Tuesday every year shades of New Oleans.

Being recent transplants to CT from TN, we had been looking for some place to get some good home cooking. It's not quite like home, but it is very close. The food is high quality and very flavorful. The fried chicken was crispy and delicious. The greens, smoked sausage, and pecan pie were very good. The gumbo was not quite... More

Black-Eyed Sally's may have been inspired by southern comfort foods but they have put their own spin on traditional barbecue ribs, chicken and all the fixins'! Arguably the best standards of mac' n cheese, fried pickles, collard greens and cornbread offerings this far north of the Mason/Dixon line. Black-Eyed Sally's also offers their own selection of "sauce" to enhance their... More

Little place across from huge parking lot. Not far from the Capitol building. Prices were average but the food was above average. The beef brisket and the pulled pork was the best. The coleslaw was so good. Great atmosphere !

A local recommended Black-Eyed Sally's for BBQ and we were not disappointed! The entire restaurant is much larger than it looks like, complete with a large live stage, about a dozen Elvis's on velvet, photo's and even a bust really accent the jazz decor very nicely. This is the most southern place in the northeast and has some righteous "Q".... More
