    Good food with good service. We were there at 5 pm so not at all busy but they were expecting a lot of people at 6 pm. Restaurant located upstairs from BB Kings restaurant on Beale Street so a busy spot.

    Beautiful restaurant on top of BB Kings. We were tucked into a nice quiet alcove to eat. Enjoyed the entertainment of a piano & sax player. Our meals of shrimp & grits and short ribs were very tasty. Make sure to try the bread pudding for dessert

    Great place for a date night or a night out with friends. Loved the vibe and the food and service were excellent! My favorite was the crab stuffed shrimp app! Will be going back!

    Had a great time for a birthday dinner. Food and ambience was probably as good as it gets on Beale St. for that type of occasion.

    Our server was not attentive. When my drink was delivered it was made incorrectly but my server did not return for me to ask for it to be remade. Another server came by and brought my friend's drink. I told her that we had seen our server in a bit and my drink was made with bourbon but I had ordered vodka. She took the drink and came back with it in hand saying the bartender did make it with vodka and I was wrong. I assured her it was bourbon and she insisted it wasn't and that the bartender remembered making it. I wasn't going to sit there and argue with her. Our server eventually came back and I told her what had happened and she took the drink. She returned with a fresh drink in hand made with vodka and admitted that the original drink was most certainly made with bourbon. We ordered the apple cobbler and the crust was way under done. They took nothing off our bill. Will not return.
