Went here for a birthday get together. There was a band playing and they were pretty good. Got a few appetizers. The wings were really good. I would go back again.

The tables were too crowded together for Sunday Brunch, especially since it was a buffet brunch. To get up to get your food was very awkward, bumping into eating guests. Either reduce the number of tables or get a bigger room.

My husband and I was celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted at the door and allowed to choose our seat at the open table. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and the food arrived in a timely manner. The food was very good. I enjoyed the barbecue ribs, mash potatoes and broccoli dinner. We had a great time listening to the music and entertainment. It was Karaoke night and we enjoyed it very much. We definitely will return in the future.

Took my hubby to the Half Note on a Wednesday evening to celebrate his birthday. Dinner was delicious; we started with the teriyaki chicken wings, he had the (colossal) fried shrimp, i had the crab cakes (w/ mac-n-cheese & collard greens). We also shared an order of corn bread. All of our food was hot and well seasoned.

The DJ was spinning until Be'la Dona Band too the stage @ 8 PM and rocked the house! They took old &neo sould and made nice mid-tempo danceable tunes out of em. We has a ball!

2 bottles of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, desert and great music for less than $120!
WE ENJOYED IT ALL!

For our first time going it was frustrating to be seated and not greeted again till about 10mins later. We we're somewhat lost as to what to expect and when someone finally came she was rude and they ended up switching her. It took for ever for the food to arrive and it was basically empty at the time we were there. It seems like a nice place but could be more customer oriented.

This is a nice local place to hear good jazz. The service was great. The food was delicious; my husband is still raving about the fried chicken five days later. Lol. He wants to go back just for the chicken alone. It was our anniversary and from the door, the hostess, our server and even the band recognized our special day. They even dedicated a song to us. They went out of their way to make it a memorable night. We will go back!
