Great food and great service as usual, very loud atmosphere. I could not hear across my own table. Given a Saturday night, it was expected, but regardless, the excessive noise detracted from my overall experience

First time at the restaurant. Had a drink on the roof top which was great. Nice ambiance and great service. Went down to the restaurant for dinner. Got our table and no service for at least 10 minutes. My wife and I finally moved to the bar where we sat and got great service. I thought the food was Ok. I will give it another chance. They had a female singer who was really good. I am not negative (except for the service) and will try the food one more time.

6 of us had various $12 lunch combos. I had 1/2 brisket sandwich and criss cross chips. There was very little meat on it. The chips were good but I didn’t like the sandwich. The Rotary Club was there and it was noisy.
I probably won’t go back.

The waitress was excellent and attentive. The hostess seating when we got there did not seem to enjoy working there, They had a band playing as well as music coming on the overhead speakers. It was hard to have a pleasant Mother's Day dinner. I would not go back,

We had a large party so we couldn't wait for a table upstairs on the roof. We were in a fairly plain, non-descript room inside but the service was great and the food was outstanding. With a smaller group, we'd definitely wait for an outside space next time, but the inside room was fine for our group (4 teens/pre-teens). The cornbread is excellent and the ice cream thing on the corn crepe was ridiculously tasty. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Pricey, but worth it.

It was great, server was really good. He forgot the albondigas soup for 2 people, but all was good, no issues. He allowed us to linger after the meal was over. The Flux Capicator band was spectacular.

PS--Two of us went the next night for after-meal dancing/music and were disappointed in having a DJ on Friday night. Went to the Sandpiper for live music. Still, Thursday night with the big group was spectacular.

The service was not good and it was not good for special events. Only go if you want to be treated poorly, with attitude and if you want to go for drinks.

We decided on Skyloft for its rooftop lounge/bar area. We knew ahead of time that they do not take reservations for the rooftop. So we had lunch inside, our server was fantastic, very attentive and had great suggestions. I believe his name is Jose. I would recommend this place if you don't mind waiting for a spot to open up on the rooftop, which was an organized hot mess. One problem, the bartender was rude. After spending close to $300.00 for lunch I decided to stay behind when my party left and enjoy a nice quiet glass of wine. I was sitting at the bar, quiet and minding my own business (with 10% of the seats empty) and the bartender out of the blue asks, "You're still here?" in a condescending tone. Needless to say I was embarrassed, finished my wine and left. Nice way to ruin my day.

I wanted good southern barbecue, and we got it here. The simple dining room is separate from the lounge and live music, so you can have conversation. What is excellent is the food. The best ribs ever. Our friends loved the brisket and the meat pie. The parmesan crusted mash was yummy. The wine selection was good too. We will be back. Service was fast and friendly, but not rushed. We had a great time.

The waiter stuck us in a room and didn't check on us for 30 minutes at a time. Completely threw his restaurant under the bus and blamed "them" anytime something went wrong -- food was forgotten, drinks were missing, orders incorrect, etc.

Food was not worth the price. The best part was the ambiance.
