    What a great atmosphere! The food was amazing - crispy chicken wings, homemade biscuits, jambalaya. They have live music and the ambience on Sunday night is amazing

    The live music was fantastic and the seating and venue intimate and cozy. The food was hit or miss, as was the service, but pretty good. Overall a great a experience.

    Brunch accompanied by a jazz set is soothing. Try the Venison burger, a gamey patty topped with sweet blackberry onion jam, farm cheese, and country ham. The challah bun is a great touch. Read more

    Excellent service, great set by Jon batiste. Very good food. The only thing we weren't happy with are the prices: $50/person cover and $30 for a small portion of shrimp and grits felt like too much.

    A true gem, reminiscent of a time gone by. Lawrence is the man, and will hook it up any which way.

    Wonderful live jazz musicians go all night. Pass on the sampler platter for North African-spiced grilled shrimp, sherry-tinted she-crab soup, and dreamy cheese grits. Jackets-required for men. Read more

    With an entry of $135, One assumes that Minton's will attract the upper echelon types. Jackets are required and so is a serious Amex black card if you are going to order a la carte. Original mural

    Minton's has a great mural, it's a jazz scene that was painted during the construction of the original building (circ. 1930's)
