    Not our typical excellent experince...great service but the menu has changed a bit as we usually start off with Madelines and cracklins only to discover they have removed cracklin's! They have also changed to "family style". Not sure why, maybe a bit more helping of sides but the food came out room temperature. My favourite brisket was not as tender as usual. .. bring back the cracklin's!!

    One of the best "go to" restaurants for anyone. Always a pleasant atmosphere. Good food and cocktails - regardless of which location you decide to dine. Service is always plus. Be sure and have the cornbread madeleines. Delicious!! Don't forget Jazz Standards for some good listening sounds downstairs at the 27th Street Blue-Smoke location.

    I’ve been here a few times with my twin babies because it is super child-friendly. The food is great... I’d recommend anything on the menu that has fried chicken in it... so good. Very nice staff. The only minor issue was that I noted on the reservation and confirmed with the host that it was my birthday, but they didn’t do anything special. No biggie. Still love the place and will go back many times.

    Wonderful meal. Barbecue salmon outstanding, as was brisket. Sides of coleslaw, mashed sweet potatoes, collard greens were wonderful. Desserts great too, especially hand pie and key lime pie. Highly recommend and hope to return soon. Music playing in the restaurant, but we were a party of 6 and were able to talk and hear each other -a big plus on a Saturday night.
