Three couples were looking for a light lunch. Each couple choose a diffrent sandwich from the long list they offered and each couple opted to split their order as we were going for a big meal that night. Service was quick by a friendly waitress, food was served in a timely fashion. The rest of the story is that the... More

Enjoyed meal while listening to live music. Prices very reasonable. Philly steak pasta was excellent although a little short on beef. Recommended by nearby hotel staff. Would return.

We ate there twice. The location was great to walk from our hotel and the food was really good. We had catfish one time and chicken livers and green tomatoes the other time. Excellent.

Father- in-law has been wanting for us to go here for years. My daughter sings and he has also been wanting for her to show up and be asked to sing, I guess. Granted, at one time a friend of ours was in the house band, but she has since left. And the fact that my daughter is 8 months... More

If I could give the restaurant a zero, I would. We chose this restaurant on the fact it was close to our hotel. In this case location was not everything! The waitress we had was fine, none of this was her fault. The cook on the other hand needs to read the menu and prepare what they have advertised. The... More
