as far as fast foods go, my wife loves Popeyes...this place beats it hand over fist. Went with friends and had the chicken and sides. Could not finish the dish; the chicken was super , the sides were great, the service was extraordinary; it was 730 on a week night and we were seated immediately and... read more

My wife and I went there for a late Easter lunch. The food was amazing and the service fabulous. They brought us a sweet corn bread with strawberry butter. This would have been wonderful as a dessert even. Our drinks were well made and came quickly. We had the catfish fingers for an appetizer and they were great. The fish... More

Arrived with high hopes for some good food to start off a night out. Arrived at 6 pm in front of a crowd. I felt hopeful since my party of two arrived first. Soon the vestibule was crowded and we decided to get bar seating which was looking to open up. When two diners finshed at the bar they were... More

The food was delicious - when I was ALLOWED to eat. Ms. Tootsie's is NO LONGER a restaurant!!! It is a bar at which one is forced to drink, until for the trolls for the bar owner determines that enough funds have been collected from imbibing to be granted the right to eat. I ate here when it was really... More

The food is ok, nothing to brag about. Our waitress was not good. We waited a long time for refills of beverage, and our check. Cramp space for seating. Only good points was the Tootsie flavored ice tea (which they ran out of and seeing Patti Lavelle at the restaurant

I took my husband for his birthday the day after Christmas. The seating is too close for comfort for me. The table next to us was talking so loud we can barely hear ourselves talk. I ask the waiter to seat us to another table which was located upfront next to the door and we were fine. The waiter/hostess gave... More
