The entertainment was very good! The service was horrible!!! Our table was sticky and dirty! It took for ever for a server to come over and help us. I went to the bar to get drinks and the bartender told me I had to wait for my server to come over. The food was typical for a chain...disgusting!

Ordered the brisket plate, comes with green beans and mash. ..I also ordered the white cheddar mac and cheese. The brisket was good but had a ton of fat on it...the highlight was the mac...super good! The live band was awesome too!

I had a reservation for a party of 15 on a Monday night, and I believe we ended up with 17 or 18 dinner guests. We were seated right next to the stage where an excellent band was playing. While they were onstage, it was LOUD. Our waiter (yes, one waiter for the entire party), took our drink orders through... More

The food was surprisingly good for a chain. If you go before 7 PM no cover charge even with live music, but don't forget to ask for a pass from your hotel or shuttle driver. Not a lot of options for conversation if the music is live. Don't miss the tuna burger - absolutely perfect.

First of all, the live music was fantastic. We got to hear a duo perform lost of Billy Joel hits and they were really good. Then tney played some Elton John hits and my wife and I put down out meals and got up to dance. It was fun - and I don't typically like to dance. So the food... More

Our food must have set a while before it was served because it was luke warm at best, The waiter, who was very nice and helpful. recognized that my plate was not very full and brought a second dish stating that my plate did not look like an $18 plate. My food was tasty but my dinner partner was less... More

We had a large party of 8 visiting this establishment and the reviews were mixed on the food, but the consensus was unanimous on the entertainment, which was awesome. I ate "four bones" of delicious ribs with two sides of a rather small portion (my only gripe), but my friends found the chicken to be dry and some of the... More

Dependably delicious ribs and sides, good drinks, and great music! Come before the cover charge and listen to the warm-up bands - less crowded, better service and still great music.

Stopped in while visiting last October and it was so good we went back the next night. I tagged along on a business trip with the Husband and we really liked this spot. We visited in the evening just in time for the last show for the night. There was not a long wait for a table and both times... More

By far the best shrimp & grits I've ever had. The gumbo and chili pasta were also delish. The music is loud and there is a dance floor so if you are looking for quiet don't go here. There is also a $5pp cover charge for the band. Loved it and would go back for sure.
