Enjoyed our date night. Unfortunately, the food is not what kept us there. It’s the live band.! We had to send out orders back a few times. Owners were very apologetic, maybe just stick to a simpler menu. I will go back, but I will make sure it’s for drinks and music.

I enjoyed myself. The live music was a little too loud but the band was great. Also could have a more extensive liquor selection

OMG! Nice place. They have a LIVE band, food was fantastic and the crowd was moderate due to Covid but I loved it. I got a chance to meet a few of the owners and I think I'm going to plan a private party there. Will be back soon. Thanks Culture!

Culture is an amazing place to hangout! On Good Friday the entertainer sang religious songs. Not what you expect on date night. Every time Culture has been the best so I will give a pass for this one time! Beautiful voice p

Culture is a dope place. The live music is a breath of fresh air and the talent is extraordinary. The drinks is plentiful and food is delicious. The service could be a little better as fas having to wait on the waiter to get to you. Besides that we love this place

Overall everything was GREAT accept the service. It’s wasn’t so busy but the waitress didn’t come to the table but once. Had to get her attention to put in the food order. Had to ask the owner for refills on beverages. She didn’t bring the check so had to call back with payment.

Wish the food menu was better,Not much to choose from and pretty pricey. It could be because of COVID, my first time visiting so I’m not sure. Would most definitely visit again, I’d just eat dinner first

I am very impressed with the service, Live Entertainment was off the chain! Staff and management extremely friendly and tentative to your needs. Soul food was tasteful, however some items were served cold. Overall we had a great time. We will be back and I highly recommend Culture!

This place was very nice overall but due to Covid there was a 2 hour seating limit. My husband and I went for the first time this past Saturday. The staff was very professional and friendly. The live band was excellent (although we only got 10 minutes of music because they didn't start on time and we had a 2 hr limit). We ordered cocktails and with the second round it took like 40 minutes to come and when were asked to leave our seats before we got our drinks. We were told that we could go to the bar but that was filled to capacity. I know the rule is due to Covid but I think its bad to move paying customers that's continuously ordering items because the limit was reached. Also, we were asked to move before we even got our drinks and bill. Overall, this is a very nice place to hang out and listen to live music but bad that you are forced to leave when you're enjoying yourself.

Nice chill spot to enjoy some live music. just eat before you go as the menu is very limited and not just because of covid - you can get a wing plate, a nacho plate, a taco plate, or a salad. drinks were good and the vocalists were wonderful. there us karaoke on thurs nights...still a few kinks to be worked out though. it was ike every other song had the lyrics on screen for you to sing along to. perhaps because it seems you just text whatever song u wan to a specific number and wait for your name to e called next vs hving a specific catalog available of songs they actually have the words for. Overall my date & I enjoyed ourselves and would definately go back to check out some other performers.
