The food tasted good. The strawberry butter for the cornbread was great. Their signature tropical iced tea was awesome. Nice trendy modern decor.

This is one of those places that you go to once, just to say you've been there. I read and article in the paper about this place and wanted to try them. The atmosphere was not bad and the bathroom was rather clean. We ordered the seafood platter for $35 but I must say it was REALLY SALTY. The Mac... More

I will start off by saying I was skeptical of visiting Ms. Tootsie's after reading other reviews about horrible service and the restaurant going down hill since previous years. I had never been to this restaurant and we wanted to visit for my husband's birthday. We arrived about 6:20pm on a Friday night and we were seated right away. Our... More

Had an amazing time last Wednesday; first time coming to their happy hour. Prices were great, service was phenomenal and the ambience was right on point. Exactly what I needed after a long days work. I honestly cannot wait until this Wednesday to return. *** sweet chili wings, crab macaroni and cheese balls and a endless glass of their famous... More

Ms. Tootsies is by far the best restaurant experience I've ever had! The service was wonderful! Never have I ever experienced such great hospitality from the hostess to the person bringing and taking the dishes. We didn't wait long for our meal and the food was served hot and delicious! Not to mention the great atmosphere, such a great place... More

I made reservations for my wife's birthday nine days in advance and they weren't confirmed until about three days before the date. We had a long wait, (15 minutes to be seated) and an hour before our food was served; however, the food there is very good! Not sure if I would go again anytime soon only because it took... More

Last thursday i visited ms. Tootsies off the ave on the arts for a bite and some cocktails. I was greeted by a youthful very polished hostess who offered us a table although we opted to rest at the bar for the evening. The barkeep was bubbly and explained cocktails as she crafted a creative version of a long island... More
