LOVE coming here for the excellent bands of varying styles of music that play every Friday and Saturday night with NO COVER CHARGE! The music line-up is listed on their website giving you the opportunity to check out each of the bands in order to get a feel for their music style. Alcohol is plentiful with a full bar and... More

Wether for lunch, dinner,or dancing, I am always happy to have chosen Rhythm Kitchen. the atmosphere is relaxed. The wait staff is super friendly. I love the eclectic blend of furniture that reminds me of my mom's kitchen growing up. The food is always freshly prepared and yummy. Check out the bands for drinks and dancing near the Riverfront.

Try the Spicy Mexican Chicken, it has bell peppers, black beans fresh greens, and is very spicey!!!! Or the Jamaican Jerk Chicken! It's to die for! The music on Friday's and Saturday is Eclectric and you should look up the schedule ahead of time. The place is packed in advance!

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.
