“Too Loud and Not a Family Restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We tried it twice and was a bust each time. Wait staff is friendly and that's about it. They don't seem to know what they want to be...restaurant? out of control bar? music venue? Either way you can't hear your tablemates when they have a performer. If you ask them to turn it down they suggest you move to the back room (where you'll be alone). The food is okay but not worth a. the noise and b. the drunks. There's a reason a security golf cart remains parked out there except for the occasional patrol around the parking lot. Some of the staff had been drinking at the bar also. Don't bring kids and consider mental telepathy if you want to converse with people at your table.

We offer "Homestyle Family Dinners" Monday thru Thursday nights, Blue Plate Lunches M-F, and a kids menu every day of the week. We are very much a family restaurant, but yes we do host live music (acoustic and blues) three nights per week. It is difficult to "turn down" live acoustic music, but we do offer quieter spaces throughout the restaurant (which the reviewer declined).

If you are looking for a bland, straightforward restaurant, then you have plenty of options around town. But we are offering a fun, "proudly unclassifiable" mix of great food, weekend music, and upscale atmosphere – something pretty unique in this town.

Staff members were absolutely NOT drinking at the bar, or they would have been fired on the spot.

Stopped whil;e in Jackson on business - sat at the bar and had a delicious dinner. Georgia Blue had a nice craft-beer selection and great service.

“Not Impressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

On 3/07/13 @ 2 pm, my husband and I stopped at the new Georgia Blue in Flowood. The hostess seemed offended that we asked to look at a menu before being seated. She then lead us to our table, threw the menus on the table and ignored my attempt to talk to her. We had been seated approx 5 min, had had 2 wait staff walk past us twice with empty hands and ignore us. We left, told the people at the counter we had not been served, no one expressed any kind of regret so we did leave.
