During a business trip I was looking for a spot with good food and a local vibe. Loving Cajun and being from the South I thought I'd give this place a try. Plus they have live jazz/blues music. Sat at the bar and was met with a terrific server. Ordered up some jambalaya with a local brew and life became... More

If you like BBQ then you will like Sally's! There is nothing bad on the menu. The atmosphere is fabulous, the waitstaff is always great, the food is the best BBQ around. The corn bread, chicken wings, wings, to name just a few delicious things.

Great place in downtown Hartford for southern-style BBQ and Cajun food. Sally's exudes a comfy House Of Blues vibe with very good food, lively bar area and an outdoor patio. Even better, they feature live music most every night with an emphasis on R&B, blues, and roots rock. Bottled and draft beer selection is very good. The brisket is some... More

Located downtown on Asylum Street, near the beckoning Bushnell Park, Sally's is a deservedly popular venue that offers delicious bbq, along with live music and several local beers. The Combo Platter I enjoyed was your basic plate filled with savory meats atop good ole red beans & rice. An attractive place decorated with portraits of jazz/blues greats - check the... More

We were on our way back from an extended weekend in Portland ME. We did a search for dinner and BES was the choice. The hostess obviously hates her job, plenty of hauffing and eye rolling. But when she said "would you like to it by the band". The jazz music overshadowed the hostess and the waitress who forgot us.... More

Had the 2 meat combo of pulled pork and smoked sausage with rice and black beans and slaw. It was very good and a nice size portion. My wife had the cornmeal fried cat fish with salt and vinegar fries and slaw. She got a lot of fish, and took some of it home. The fries and slaw were also... More

This was our second visit to Black-Eyed Sally's although our last visit was a couple of years ago. My husband is a big BBQ fan and he loves their ribs. Between the two visits, we've sampled numerous menu items and have not been disappointed. The staff is always very friendly and attentive and seems to really enjoy being in the... More

I used Black Eyed Sally's to cater a year end pool party in my neighborhood. I just didn't want my husband or me standing at the grill all afternoon to cook for 30 people. It was a great decision to order from Black Eyed Sallys! I did the bulk ordering on-line and then got a phone call from them to... More

My family, (which includes our 16 year old son), and I recently stayed at a Hilton Hotel near Compounce Lake, a wonderful amusement park, but aside from the pub and restaurant at this hotel, there's really nothing to see or do in Bristol. With a little research, we found Black Eyed Sally's in Hartford, Ct., a delicious blend of soul... More
