I have eaten here a few times over the last 15 years. Food is always exceptional. I'm not a big fan of super spicy and you can find items on the menu that aren't spicy at all. The portion sizes are pretty big so its best to go with half portions unless you want to bring home what you didn't finish and have it the next day because its still great. I am always impressed!

We have been patrons of High St. for 18 years. Over the years we have grown to love this restaurant and go every chance we get. For us it is our place to celebrate milestones and special occasions. I’ve traveled far and wide and have not had better food than this restaurant turns out every time. Every time we visit we start with at least the blackened alligator and end with the bananas foster. We usually try the specials as there is always something exciting and new. We have never had a bad experience and love the staff. We have gotten used to the fun vibe and tight seating. It’s all part of the experience that transports you for an hour or two to another level of dining that is rare in Chester County.

Went to Vudu Lounge before a show at WCU theater. We had blackened chicken, scallops, and shrimp on dirty rice. It was excellent.
Service was friendly. One downside, parking is really tough in the whole area. Looked for nearly half an hour finally got lucky in a construction zone.
Next time in the area will definitely go again.

We went for an early Valentine's celebration. Was our first time at this restaurant. The food and service was great! No complaints! I'm not good with spicy foods so I was happy the menu had plenty of options for me. Forewarning that the tables are pretty packed in there, so if you want a romantic evening with some privacy and to not really hear the convo at the next table, choose a different spot. But this place is awesome for good food and great service! We will come back for sure! So many awesome dishes to try!

When we were getting seated, the hostess apologized and explained the restaurant was out of bread. I really didn't mind one way or another, however the waitress then came to the table and apologized that the restaurant was out of all breads! She explained so any item containing bread would not be available, i.e., Po'Boys, burgers,... Why would a owner/manager allow this to happen? There was only one other table in there at the time, so wouldn't it have been better to send someone out to the local grocery store then to allow this to happen. When we left an hour and a half later, there were only four table eating.
I ordered the chicken and shrimp bourbon, and the chicken was so tough! It turned my stomach. The shrimp in the dish was cooked perfectly! Its a shame because my husband and I have always loved this place! We are hoping it was just an off night for them and not an indication of things to come!

The hostess and server were excellent! Made the most of a bad situation.

The restaurant has a cool vibe, but we were rushed out of our seats, because the staff said they needed the table for other patrons, but there were several other 4 tops available. We were interested in a nice leisurely dining experience and were disappointed

The food was wonderful, as always. A half portion of most dishes is plenty, but if want some to take home go for the full portion. The price is a little high, but it is worth it.
