Delightful Daytime Dining in A Nighttime Venue

ATMOSPHERE The lounge was located in a strip mall and is pretty lounge like visually. Picture low lights, dark tables and booths and mirrors when you walk in. I visited the restaurant for Sunday brunch with unlimited mimosas and the hot food was lined up assembly style on one side of the room and... read more

I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, staff, food and Karaoke participants. My friends and I will be returning.

Enjoyed visiting here one Tuesday for Karaoke. The bar was packed with guests. Sat in the separate dining area where we could still see the stage. It was not too loud for conversation. Ordered one of the "$5 special drinks" of a flavored martini which was not very good. Traded it out for a regular drink which was fine. Really... More

I attended Sunday brunch here. While the food and staff were both VERY good I was completely disturbed when I heard one of the men serving food at the buffet berating the hispanic waiter. I did not even want to get anymore food because I felt completely uncomfortable. I called twice to speak with a manager and report it but... More

The spot is a Club with a Restaurant. We arrive close to the kitchen closing. The Staff seated us without missing a beat, very pleasant and accommodating. Additionally, it was late night, the food was served fresh, piping hot and very tasteful. Try the Sweet Potato Cornbread..very good! All the while a live is band is playing and sounding as... More

Great food. Horrible service. This is a fun Karaoke bar for mature crowds and the music lovers. If you want your drink quickly, order a bottle. If you want food, order it the moment you arrive. You may never see your server again...and if you do, he or she is bound to have an attitude. I'd come here again but... More

Was taken out for a surprise birthday dinner at the Half Note Lounge. Enjoyed the jazz set with Marcus Johnson. It was nice and clean and our server Jordan made it even better offering the highest quality of service to the various cuisines. I had the jumble shrimp with mussels. My date had some of the most tender and tasty... More

I would recommend Half Note's Sunday brunch. The food was decent and the atmosphere was cool. Our waitress was no concern. She helped us understand since it was our first time. First time going and it was more than I expected. One note, it is buffet style but the food is served/portioned by them. You can ask for more but... More
