  • Terrible service and mediocre food. My fish was overcooked and so crispy I couldn't chew it. My sides were even cold! Chanel, our waitress didn't come to our table until after 45 min of us being there. We asked several people who our waitress was, they all said Chanel...who was no where to be found! The drinks cost more than the meal. We had to ask the manager to get our waitress because we had been waiting for at least an hour and a half to get our checks. And to top it off gratuity was already included on the check! I pride myself on supporting minority businesses but we gotta do better! I don't plan to spend my money here again, no matter what band is performing!
  • Music Great / Food and Service bad. When my wife and I were seated. We asked for water and a menu. We did not receive everything for until an hour later. We ordered the catfish dinner. My food was cold (Ice Cold). I received condiments for my food, my wife ordered the same thing and had no condiments. The atmosphere is great. The food and service is suspect.
