My party and I did enjoy the food; We had a difficult time with all the salt cooked within the food. As a result, we didn't eat the majority of our food. We recommend the food to be less salty so we as a customer can choose and add more salt if we want. Specifically the main foods that had a great volume of salt included: 1) shrimp 2) chicken 3) greenbeans 4) Ribs Due to the outcome of the food, we have decided to cancel our plans to request their catering services for our event. In contrast, the macaroni and cheese was good. The music was great. Overall , I would recommend this spot.

Water could not be served until after the meal was ordered and paid for. The food portion size was sad and extremely disappointing - which makes me wonder why we had to wait so long for the meal to be prepared. In total I paid over $65 to hear a amateur band, as unshapely senior citizens served drinks in tight waist corsets with elderly breast fat bubbling over. In all the experience was overrated and under whelming. I hope the band finds a better vinue or the supper club gets serious about buisness, service, and food.

But they had people pay at the door. It was $20 per person for an event. That didn't include anything expect entry. And we got there at 9pm. In addition, the venue was old and needed an immediate update. The food was so so. Like who wants to buy food when you had to pay so much to get in. Drinks were pricey. Definitely a rip-off restaurant. Will not go again. I felt like hiring chef Ramsay for them to help them have a complete make over.

My food never came, and the only reason I found out my item was sold out was because I tracked my waitress down after waiting 45 minutes just to get water (not exaggerating). Sound system needs to be upgraded. Advertising for shows is misleading. I won't be going back, and it's such a waste because it has such potential.

However we were treated very nice by the servers and the good was really good. I had a succulent steak and lobster tail. My beau and I would have stayed longer if the seating was a little more comfortable and it was kinda cold in there. The band was really good I would def go back good place for a bday party for the ladies. Delicious drinks also!

Waited probably 30 minutes for drinks, salads came before anyone at the table had a drink. Appetizers came with the main meal and one of them was forgotten (but still tried to charge us). Would return for the music and drinks but definitely not to eat. Food was actually pretty good but presentation not fantastic and service (although very nice and polite and smiling entire time) was very very slow.

Lovely, pleasant wait staff but overly long waits for food. A staffing adjustment or even having the owner & his wife roll up their sleeves to help would have made a much more enjoyable night for both staff & guests. The entertainment was phenomenal though.

It had a complete soul food menu. Now it has gone to the bar food and all I wanted were wings and those were overcooked. Also the drinks that I ordered was very weak like it was water down. If it wasn't for the band that was playing I would have just turned around and left.

Service was awful. Could be a lot better. Every time I made a reservation, they never had it.

Both the piped in music and the live music were just too loud for my wife and I to handle, so we left long before we had intended to.

Need to improve your help. Very disappointed in the service. 1 hour for the waitress to take your order for your first drink and received the drink 45 min later. Ordered my food at the time I got the drink and took 1-1/2 hrs later with no salt or butter for my bake potato and no salt, etc. must I go on?

No wine list? Who are you trying to attract here? Appetizers not worthy. Staff was very nice they just need to fill in the blanks if you want a higher paying clientele. Maybe they aren't looking for that. Too bad. Big void in Columbus for a venue that will cater to the former " Vonn" crowd. It's wide open right now. I'll pay if it's worth it. Music was great.

The band was on point, and the double menues are a great idea. Only a couple things to work on, the dress of the staff in referance to the owner. The owner was sugar sharp, yet the waiteress/ bar staff did nothing to accent him, and the trash outside the bar was a bit disturbing . With the atmosphere and customer base you are trying to attract , first impression are so important. TY!

Our server was excellent (very attentive). Food was good and portions were ample. I really liked that I could reserve a table. The music was Awesome (Urban Jazz Coalition). I have heard of the group but really didn't know their music. I have already told two friends about this spot. Looking forward to the next time.

The service was great. The wait staff were so friendly and kind. They smiled and made you feel welcome. The food smelled great. My friend said it was good and the drinks were awesome. I would come again. I went to see a band Hosea's State of Mind and they were fantastic. I would come again to see them play.

Drinks were good. Didn't get a chance to try the food. No waiters or waitress ever came to suggest anything and I had waited a long time at the bar to get my own drink. I said the same in my review of the place and was told they would be working on doing better. I will be back to try them again since the music and overall feel was fun and good. Great mature adult setting.

We asked for glass of water and she went back to the bar and started talking, then 20 minutes later she brought bottled water. We saw she took others glasses of water around us. The server lost tips and bar missed money. Good luck to the owners the inside is nice but the service was bad.

I believe that's because they did not have to pay before the event I think to have a better turnout you should have to pay before the event.
