We love this place, the food, the music, the location, all is good. It is packed . My husband loves the piano player and the great tunes he plays, a set back to the 70's and 80's. Love the food, good selection, sea food is great, love the catfish. It is located on the market which is a great place... More

Walked by this place several nights. It is no longer open. Not sure if there are plans to reopen, or if something else might end up there, but for now, it is not open.

I have heard many raves about this restaurant but found it average. I phoned ahead for a reservation and asked if they could put a candle in the dessert for my girlfriend's birthday. They told me to bring my own candle. What!!! Duh!!! Ordered the crab cakes and Jambalaya and they were quite good. However, we asked for some bread... More

This restaurant has a cozy, warm atmosphere. I tried the fried chicken, which I thought was very tasty. crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside. Their fries are very thinly sliced and I enjoyed them very much! The duelling pianos are very cool. I'll definitely be back!

We popped into this restaurant for a quick drink - most of us had the Canadian beer - and it was a good atmosphere if a little empty. There were two guys playing the piano and singing which was fun, but it wasn't too loud so the group of us couldn't talk.

We arrived when the restaurant was not busy at all but once a large group arrived we were pretty much forgotten about. We had already placed our order or we probably would've left. My fried chicken was crunchy but overcooked and tasteless, the best part being the cole slaw. My husband enjoyed his jambalaya but rated it a 6/10. We... More
