I was here on my birthday (30 again!). My friend brought me to hear Go Go music and I was not disappointed. All the seats were taken by 8:00 but it was my birthday so of course I had to do it VIP style. There were only two of us and even a bottle of Moet wasn't enough so we... More

umm just thinking about it....I'll start with the Sunday brunch then share the "rules". The food here is noteworthy and worth it! I started with a waffle cooked fresh not too hard not too soft topped with cherries and powdered sugar (no butter) still Delish! Then I moved on to the cheese grits which I went back for 3rds(shame on... More

I LOVE the atmosphere, the food and the music. This my go to spot when to much of the real world is going on. Its so laid back and you don't have to worry about anyone bothering you if you don't want to be bothered. Anyone with an adult mentality can appreciate and enjoy this place.

On a Friday night they don't have a "true happy hour" (maybe if you sat at the bar) but this is a lounge mind you. Drinks are $2.00 off, when the rum punch is $12.00 taking 2 off isn't much... They charge a cover after 7:00pm, and they are serious as someone in my group pointed out that it was... More

This was a nice social place for some laughs and great entertainment. This was a Saturday night for me and a girlfriend to hangout. The cost was $10 a piece for entrance (normal cost). The drinks are a bit pricey though. The place is small so I would suggest early arrival for good seats. The band was GREAT and kept... More

Enjoyed visiting here one Tuesday for Karaoke. The bar was packed with guests. Sat in the separate dining area where we could still see the stage. It was not too loud for conversation. Ordered one of the "$5 special drinks" of a flavored martini which was not very good. Traded it out for a regular drink which was fine. Really... More

ATMOSPHERE The lounge was located in a strip mall and is pretty lounge like visually. Picture low lights, dark tables and booths and mirrors when you walk in. I visited the restaurant for Sunday brunch with unlimited mimosas and the hot food was lined up assembly style on one side of the room and desserts, salads and the waffle station... More

I attended Sunday brunch here. While the food and staff were both VERY good I was completely disturbed when I heard one of the men serving food at the buffet berating the hispanic waiter.
