Once in a while I find these amazing restaurants in out-of-the-way places, and this is one of those for sure. The food was absolutely amazing. I had a new menu item a blackened grouper on a bun with avocado and tomato and a side of red beans and rice. The sandwich was perfecto. Many restaurants interpret "blackened" to be "add... More

Friends and I visited the Rhythm Kitchen and there is a band there last night. The music was the blues and it was fun in the beginning but after awhile the music was lacking in creativity. The service was hit and miss and the place wasn't busy. The food was delivered hot and delicious. There is definitely a New Orleans... More

We went to a rehearsal dinner. There were 60 of us and one waitress. Kid you not the woman rocked! She also had the coolest dreadlocks my daughter had ever seen. My daughter just kept staring at here. She wanted that woman's hair! Food was good, waitress was great! Good music, good art, really nice atmosphere.

I dine at Rhythm Kitchen often. Never disappointing! The Salmon BLT is the best. I didn't care for salmon until I sampled this. Now I'm a huge fan! The drinks are very good too. Chocolate martinis! They're willing to make something up for you if not advertised. Service is always pretty fast and the atmosphere is very eclectic and comfy.... More

This is a fun place to go in the evening. They are a bit pricey, but the food is delicious. On week-ends they have live bands. It's fun.

It's a quirky place with a menu, decor, and staff to match. I had an enjoyable time and the Gouda pizza was delicious.

Seven of us came on a Friday night for a friend's birthday. There were a few things that stuck out to me upon arrival. First, they wanted to charge a $30 cake fee for bringing in my friends favorite homemade dessert his sister made. Fine, you want us to buy your dessert, I get it. We put ours back in... More

The Rhythm Kitchen is much too crowded. The seating arrangement has everyone bunched in together like sardines with no space or privacy. Servers and patrons bump into you as they try to navigate the dense surroundings. Although the decor attempts to be artistic the interior is boring. Not a good place for a date. The entertainment can be good and... More
