    Wait time can range from 30 min to 2 hrs. Sitting at the bar is an option w/o a wait depending on availability. The place is packed & so worth the wait! Live music! Great food! Try Miss Ceely's Punch!

    Try the chicken, salad with house dressing, and fried green tomatoes! The fried green tomato BLT was phenomenal. We had lunch, so I'm not sure about dinner, but highly recommend it.

    Table of 6 with 6 different orders. Everything was delicious- I had the étouffée and it was a great portion and tasted fabulous. And the music made the atmosphere even better.

    Great drinks and food, and the band was AWESOME! If you're looking for something to nibble with your cocktail, I strongly recommend the fried crawfish. They're delicious.

    The love music was wonderful! The lady who sings with the band jammed all night. The pulled pork is good but the fried chicken and Mac and cheese is to die for!

    I didn't get food, but all of it looked good, loved the live music, but didn't like how they automatically charge each person a 5$ entertainment fee, I will go again on a weekday

    Awesome awesome awesome! Great food, perfect crowd and wonderful music. Try the rosemary chicken entree... I keep trying to order something different, but I'm hooked.

    Got our full of grits, fried green tomatoes, and catfish. Peach martini reminded us that we weren't in New England anymore. Insist on reservations, even if they tell you they're not busy!
    Donna McFadden · August 14, 2013
  • Elizabeth Z.
    Try the Sneaky Sneaky! Firefly whiskey + lemonade, it's the best! This place has a great old school atmosphere - it's a must if you're staying downtown!
    Elizabeth Zelman · May 31, 2013
  • Erin H.
    50 minutes to get crab cakes?! Are you serious? Music too loud and seriously lacking professionalism today. This is one of my spots but they must get more consistent!
    Erin Hackney · July 10, 2011
  • Eloquent E.
    Get the fried green tomatoes (Southern Starter) and ask for AJ & Logan as your servers...they are fab! Theresa who is in charge & she's fab as well!

    Would give a review. If we actually tried the food. Went in about an hour and fifteen minutes prior to close. And were told abruptly and without apology that they were closed.

  • Schuylar
    Grilled porkchop and mashed potatoes are delish. Salmon is great too.. Make sure you realize there is a $5 fee per person during live music
    Schuylar · January 16, 2012
  • Dan L.
    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.

    Drinks were great and music was even better, but the food was off (maybe 2nite was just a bad night?). Will go again but may only order drinks and dessert.

    This place gave African Americans a chance to speak their mind. It has a deep history of music, food, drink and entertainment in the south.

    The smoked brisket was great! The smoky flavor mixed with their savory BBQ sauce was much more than I was expecting!

    Make sure you check out the shrimp and grits here . They are great. You may want to reserve yourself from the rib dinner.

    A decorated and somewhat loft-y space with good tunes, service, and a drinks menu to keep you satisfied all night long.

    If you want to get tipsy, get the Harpo Punch :-). The best meal for its value is the fried chicken. I was stuffed!

    Make sure you make a reservation at least 2 days in advance. Great music, fried chicken and Peach Cobbler

    Fried chicken is amazing! Ask for a side of the white gravy to dip your chicken, and it will be even more amazing!

    There's a $5 cover added to your bill for the live music. All the food is well prepared, so pick anything.

    It's great to hear live jazz while having a dynamite lunch. Beware: the turkey triple stack is HUGE and deelish.

    Fried chicken is awesome, but be ready to pay for it the next day. Has about 2weeks worth of calories!!!!
