    Horrible service from the time we entered the door. Okra had no flavor or seasoning. Mac & Cheese tasted like Thanksgiving dressing.

    HORRIBLE!! Do not eat or go here for any reason! The service is slow and the customer service is non-existent even by the managers.

    The fried chicken is amazing with a touch of honey glaze on top. If you sit at the bar, you don't have to pay the $5 entertainment fee.
