Nice restaurant / club

We came here for dinner. We loved their nachos and the meatloaf was delicious. The waiter was helpful and very friendly. If you can, have dinner here and stay for one of the concerts.

Many years ago when students my wife and I used to frequent a place like this in Cardiff so being given the chance to roll back the years we gave it a try. With a little trepidation we walked in expecting to be looked at a bit quizzically. Nothing of the sort. The receptionist didn't bat an eyelid. Wandering down... More

We enjoy seeing live music, and this Blues bar was just around the corner from our hotel so an easy call. Fortunate to see Earl Thomas and we had a great time. The food was good, not fine dining, but it's a music venue. Service was spotty, but again we were there for the music and it did not disappoint.... More

I saw Lil' Ed and the Imperials here. He put on a great show. The venue is small and intimate, which allows for the audience to interact with the performers. Food, service and drinks were very good. I recommend the beef brisket.

You come here for the music which was great although i guess it depends on who is performing. I love the intimacy of the place and we came last year as well because the music is fantastic. there are 2 'sittings' and we chose the early one . The service is efficient and fast. I shared the ceviche of avocado... More

There was a group of four or us and it exceeded our expectations. We arrived at 6:00 for dinner. The staff was great, and dinner was outstanding. I would get the fried chicken again. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The entertainment started at 7:00 and was unbelievable. That night they charged $20 for a 4 hour concert.... More
