Pleasantly surprised! We were hungry and tired. Walking around with so many choices of places to eat, we were drawn by music and decided to stop here. Table wait was less than 5 minutes. Our table was tucked away, far enough for kids not to complain of loud noise and close enough for adults to enjoy view and music. Food... More

Music and food was great. Drinks could have been better. It was either too sweet or watery. The live band was also an added bonus. I would say I would go there again for the music as to me that's the great part of it.

We went here for lunch on a Sunday. The food was excellent. I had the bacon cheeseburger with barbecue sauce. My boyfriend had catfish dinner. He enjoyed it. They have homemade potato chips. There was a band and the music was great. It's not new and modern very old school not much modernization. Old school adds to the ambience. If... More

Really enjoyed the music we listened to here. Great sound system, easy viewing from many seats, and a band that got the place up and dancing. As with many of these clubs, it's hit or miss depending on who is performing but we had a great night. Didn't eat here just had a drink and thought service was fine.

We heard two bands there on a Saturday afternoon. They were both terrific. Great service too despite the crowd. We were so happy to find seats!

We heard about this place and wanted to see if the hype was right. Well, it was. We were treated to a great local musician while there and the food was good. Not great but the drinks were awesome. The chicken was a little dry and the fish was fried pretty hard but our waiter was great and he was... More

The band playing this late afternoon was very good. A lot of original music which was much appreciated. The food however was mediocre. We had catfish po boy, chicken cordon bleu, pasta primavera, BBQ burger and regular burger. They weren't bad, but they were nothing to write home about.

Thank Eric P
