Atmosphere was very cool. Live bands most nights. Food was good, but I thought portion size could be bigger. Ordered the BBQ combo platter and received 2 chicken legs, 2 ribs and 5 pieces of brisket maybe 3 inches long. Reasonably priced. Pay parking right across and down the street if you can't find on street parking.

Incredible food, ambiance and service. Loved it! I will definitely eat there again the next time I'm in Hartford. A little bit of N'Oleans in CT!

There weren’t enough plates for all 6 of us or clean forks and we had to share menu’s for what you pay its not worth it. But the food was delicious and it came very promptly and we were seated very promptly as well.

Everything was great! It was pretty loud, but only because there was a show on the other side, which didn't bother us at all :)

Great food, as always! There was a huge crowd but the waitstaff was heroic, kept up with or orders and drinks. Great band, The Zydeco Hogs and fun dancing. Hartford Hot Several Brass Band came thru around 10pm, they are lots of fun, too. Mardi Gras is always special at Sally's!

Generally the food is unique and excellent. The fried chicken is delicious. You can get anything from a Miller High Life to the fanciest IPAs.

We arrived early to eat and see the band. They put us right in front of the band. We asked to move back three tables (which were exact same size as our original table). They said we could not have one of those tables because they were reserved. Keep in mind we have a reservation too. They put us off to the side which meant my FG would be sitting a considerable distance away. We knew when the band played we would not be able to hear each other in conversation. We eventually moved to a table all the way in the back which worked out, but it was very frustrating. The food was not that great. The service was very slow. Band was good - good space. But just a general lack of concern for the customer...

Went as part of Hartford restaurant week. I ordered lump crab cake as app. It was good but came with remoulaude sauce. Other people ordered salads and neither one was happy with it. I had southern fried chicken and it was a bit chewy. The waitress brought cornbread for the table and it was delicious. It was supposed to come with their rib dinner as well but it didn’t. Service was a bit slow.

There was a band playing and it was taste of Hartford. Service was slower which is understandable for the events that were happening. Once the band started playing we could not have casual conversation at the table it was very loud.
