I was most impressed by the excellent customer service that we received. First time visiting the restaurant and our waiter was superb! The food was really good and reasonably priced. The restaurant was clean and the music was enjoyable and at that the right level. Will definitely return. Looking forward to trying more dishes!

The food and service was great but the noise level is terrible. You can’t carry on a conversation and the people I was with needed to talk.
We are seasoned adults but being bombarded by blasting noise made the experience no fun.
I’ve been here twice to enjoy the food and company . The first time I had no idea what anyone was saying the noise level is bad!!
and just nodded.
I’m use to noise and taught music. This is a problem at most restaurants anymore. Maybe just nodding is now part of our culture.!!
I’m keeping a list of restaurants we can go to,
and I’m sorry to say I won’t be back for a while.
My ears are still ringing!

Really great service as well as delicious food. Enjoyed being able to get some excellent wines in a variety of 2 to 6 oz pours. Clearly a neighborhood favorite as the employees seemed to know and happily interact with many of the guests. If we lived closer this would be a regular stop.

Been here a few times before and always had good food but was disappointed last night. Just in the mood for sandwiches/fries with friends (I know that's not their specialty) but 2 orders came out with salads instead of fries and one with tater tots(didn't even know that was an option). When the fries did come out they were cold/warm. Ordered my burger medium but it was very well done and my wife's sausage sandwich was cold. Don't know if we will go back

We love this place for everything from a casual dinner at the bar to a special birthday celebration. Tommy consistently has a team that consistently puts out great food and the best service. His hard working attitude, knowledge and love of his people and place always comes through in his food.
I’m so happy to see this place be successful after such a distraught year. Even with working through staffing shortages he does a great job!

One of the very best restaurant experiences that we’ve had in Columbus. As ex NOLA residences we got a small taste of home. All the items that we ordered from the appetizers salads to our entrées were exceptional. The staff was attentive, personal & knowledgeable. We appreciated Chef Tommy coming over and speaking with us. It made it a very personal experience and we truly appreciated his obvious passion for this restaurant and his restaurant clients. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was good but not amazing. The gumbo didn’t have any seafood in it which was a surprise. But the taste of everything was good. Our food took a VERY long time to come out, but the ambiance was nice so it wasn’t too bad. Super nice waitress, Rachel.
