My fiancé and I came here for a quick lunch in between errands. We both ordered salads which were pretty good. The staff seemed to be very preoccupied with talking amongst themselves, not attending to tables well, and more concerned with their own conversations vs. serving. Unfortunately, with this kind of customer service, they will have few people return for... More

Went for breakfast with my family. Food was ordinary. Nothing worth writing about except maybe the Mexican latte which was good (coffee, chocolate, spices in a latte. Not groundbreaking). Service was pretty awful. Waitress took forever to come to the table initially, then realized she had never brought our menus. When she eventually returned with the menus, plopped them down... More

My husband and I were invited to see a jazz singer at Beyu and liked the experience. However, we made a reservation but were not told that the reservation was for the bar. We were a group of four people so it was difficult to carry a conversation and truly enjoy our time together as friends. Besides, it was very... More

I had the pleasure of having lunch at the Beyu Caffe while on business. The service was friendly and efficient and the shrimp and grits were delicious. The atmosphere is "cozy" but not crowded to the point where you can hear the conversation of others. The tables for two are a little small which can be a challenge based on... More

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and heard it was good so we decided to give it try. I ordered shrimp and grits and he ordered a hamburger with sweet potato fries. The gravy was very good which helped make the dish. My grits had no taste and were clumpy. Since the gravy is on top... More

This is a good music venue, but the food is just so-so. I suggest eating first at anyplace on the block, then coming for the music. The music events sell out fast, so you usually can't just show up.

Aura of the restaurant is the best thing about this place, if quiet and relaxing if thats what you are after. The food is just ok in my opinion. It has been hit or miss, nothing to write home about.

First let me say if I was just rating the people working in there it would have been a 5 star rating. Our server, Clarence, was awesome and friendly. We made each other laugh a few times. My first impression inside was not that great. They only have one wall with comfortable booths (all taken when we arrived) and the... More

I'm I here on a Friday night (Jul 8) for dinner, drinks and live jazz, "The DexBass Experience". All my expectations were exceeded! Kudos to the chef and staff for an excellent pre-show dinner. The bar serves the best Hendrix Gin and Tonic! Our server, Caleb, was very attentive-we wanted for nothing! Let me just say "The DexBass Experience" is... More

We had a very nice late breakfast here on a weekday. The waitress was energetic but not annoyingly so and paid attention to us throughout. The breakfast burrito was flavorful and fresh. The small vegetable plate was plain but good enough. The salmon was, indeed, grilled (not fake grilled). Excellent coffee as well. Will return! Oh, their new location a... More
