We went early and toured around the place. The amount of Blues history and memorabilia is really a sight to see. The Gospel Brunch is a very nice buffet that ends in a Gospel service. Lots of great music and preaching. The buffet features lots of southern dishes, a carving station, chicken and waffles and a cash bar. Mimosas are... More

If you want to listen to some music, than this is the right place. Every night there are two shows. Food is nothing special

We ate here because we had a Restaurant.com coupon so it was a great value. We were seated immediately and our server was very good. We started with corn bread and voodoo shrimp which were delicious. We both had the NY strip for our entrée which was a great price for $27. They were prepared perfectly and the sides were... More

The music was amazing. We bought a CD from the guitarist. I ordered shrimp and grits but it wasn't the typical grits. These grits were fried. I was skeptical about eating it but it was amazing. I would definitely recommend this dish.

The concerts and shows have a very small amount of sitting around the bar area upstairs. So plan on standing the whole time you're there. They closely monitor if you sit on a stair or anything and threaten to kick you out. My biggest problem was the way their staff treated customers. They act like your in a prison and... More

Gospel brunch is well worth a visit. Food was delicious - great buffet with loads of options, including gluten free ones. Highlights were chicken and waffle, and mac & cheese. Mimosas were mostly orange juice, but for under $50 we'll worth it. The gospel music was great, and really good fun.

This is a really great option! The atmosphere is special, food is good, plenty of drinks. And, of course, the live music. Again not too many vegetarian options, I had a Caesar salad. My husband had a New York strip he really liked.

We stopped here for drinks and to listen to some live music. There was no cover charge for the band that was playing in the bar/restaurant. Being the day of the St. Patty's Day parade, most bars and restaurants were quite crowded, but we were able to get a drink easily enough and after about 10 minutes a few seats... More
