Was down in AC for Presidents' Day weekend with my girlfriend. She got a craving for chicken and waffles and this was the top result on Yelp for that dish. Good reviews. Sold!
When we got there (7pm) the place was packed and there was a small group waiting near the door. When we checked in the with maitre d she said she had "no idea" how long the wait would be, but they could put us on a list and they'd text when a table was ready. Thought that was a little weird, but we decided to take our chances. After about an hour at a nearby blackjack table, our stomachs rumbling, the text came! We ran over there as fast as we could.
By 8pm or so the band was in full swing (Whitney Houston tribute night). We were seated and ordered off the concise menu- chicken and waffles, ribs, and cornbread. Our food came pretty quickly and we were entertained by the band throughout the wait.
Everything was so delicious. We both started with our sides of mac & cheese, nicely melted cheese over al dente macaroni. The sides were small in size but super dense and flavorful. My ribs were perfectly sauced and the meat practically fell off the bone if you blew on it. And my girlfriend raved about her chicken and waffles - I tried a bite and can back that up. And the cornbread... just the best ever, and I have eaten a lot of cornbread.
Prices were reasonable, less than the casino restaurants for much better food. Service was excellent, very friendly and accessible even with the music going. I thought portions were just the right size - I'm sure leftovers would be great, but food like this should be enjoyed fresh. We cleaned our plates and were very full, and couldn't talk about anything besides how delicious everything was for the rest of our trip. Going to other restaurants afterward was kind of a bummer.
Pretty much the only suggestion I have is that they add a real bass instead of the keyboard-bass setup the band I saw used. Everything else was completely top-tier. We're planning to come back whenever we're down in AC.
