    We enjoyed the Fun With Dick and Jane show on the second last night for Jolene’s. The venue closed permanently on October 29. It was a wonderful, intimate place to enjoy drinks and live music - it is very unfortunate that it is closed.

    We love Jolene’s ! Cozy neighborhood bar with great entertainment and the nicest staff you can find. Always a nice bunch of people there - makes me proud to be a “local” and we will support this delightful club as long as it is there. They just closed for the summer - but we’ll be back in September!

    Great service, fun local crowd and nice food selection, mostly small plates and light bites. Only complaint is the sound level of the live music. For the size of the venue, they need to turn the amp down a few notches.

    The entertainment is amazing. Patrice Morris performs on Friday nights and she is phenomenal. The menu is limited but everything on it is very good. I love the wedge salad and I always ask them to chop it up. That makes it easier to eat. Sometimes I add some chicken and it is very good. The staff is great and the cocktails are very tasty. Make sure that you make a reservation because the space is very limited. Ask for a table in the front bar room where the entertainment is. The VIP room is the room in the back. It is quieter but the front space is more exciting.

    The Desert Crows were fantastic, ambiance is great. Wish they wouldn’t close for the summer and wish they were a bit larger but the six of us will definitely go back many times— one of our new favorites!!

    Another really great night at Jolene's! This is a perfect neighborhood romp for locals and visitors as well. Too bad it is so tiny, but then that also ads to the family vibe. This week there were loads of hilarious answers people wrote down to the question posed ... "why did Billy Joe McAllister jump off the Tallahatchie Bridge" ... they were read out loud and the audience howled. Great music, fun vibe, nice people!

    They have some really great live music. The venue is intimate. Inside, when a band is playing it can be quite loud and a fun energy. People get up and dance. When there is live music, you can also go outside on the front patio with the fire pit to have distance to be able to chat. Everything that we have ordered so far has been tasty. Great flat bread!

    Watch out…! Bait & Switch Reservatiion… We were very surprised so we left. Made a reservation for 7 pm, went at noon to see where sitting on this special occasion of our anniversary. Band setting up for evening, saw our name printed out with large placard in front of band on table for two, very pleased. Went back at 6:45 that evening, found placard reservation, handwritten on table for another party for 7:30. Manager abrupt, discourteous, said this is way it is.

    Nice little place for a glass of wine and entertainment most nights. This is not the place for a dining night out. Mostly cocktails. Menus items are limited. Service while being very professional, was lacking due to only one server managing the entire place. Mandatory 20% gratuity for a party of 5 and a request to tip the entertainment on your check. This was our second time at the location and probably is nice place for the local tourist crowd.

    If I can save at least one person from coming here, I’ll feel better…where to start…? Well I received an email saying they were starting a karaoke at 6:30 on Wednesday. So I made a reservation for one at 6:30. I arrived at 6:28, no one greeted me, no one was at the door, no hostess, only a DJ and a few older ladies taking up a couple tables and a couple at the extremely small 5 seater bar. I sat down next to the couple and when the bartender finally appeared after about 5 minutes, he talked to the couple for another 5 before even acknowledging me. Looking like this whole karaoke thing was going to be a bust, I ordered a cranberry juice to sip on while I waited for things to pick up. The bartender filled the very small class heaping with ice. Poured approximately 1 ounce of cranberry juice over the ice. Within three sips, it was gone. I waited a good 45 minutes for something to happen, nothing did. I asked for my check…$8.00 for a cranberry juice!!! Plus tax. He dropped my check and bolted for another 10 minutes so by the time he got back, I asked him if this was correct and he just sort of laughed at me and said “yeah, well you didn’t order any alcohol”. I pay less at Mastro’s and have way better service than that. Service is crappy, atmosphere was boring and cramped. Definitely not the place to be. Owner should be ashamed. Not the way to win locals.

    The music at Jolene’s was excellent, the band played great. The menu was 0K and the reason I say that is it’s more of an appetizer menu. If you want a nice dinner, then you’ll have to eat somewhere else before you go. The appetizers and drinks were great! The only thing I didn’t like about Joannes is the layout of the tables and the bar. There were a lot of people who wanted to dance and there wasn’t enough room because it has an odd layout. I think some of the walls need to be opened up and the bar pushed back. A lot of people were talking about how it could be reconfigured differently to make it more accommodating.
