The Twisted Tail is a bi-level restaurant, bar and live music venue featuring a charcoal-fired grill, a wealth of bourbon selections and the rollicking ambiance of a "juke joint" (or old school Southern music hall). The inventive menu highlights ingredients in their simplest form, flame broiled over live coals for rich, authentic flavor.

Inside a warm, welcoming dining space makes The Twisted Tail South Street’s best place to catch a band - and a bite.

The Restaurant Week menu was good: nice selection and decent portion sizes. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks.

The lighting is very dim, so bring your glasses and prepare to get it your cellphone light to see the small print menu. Additionally, as the evening progressed we had the distinct smell of trash. Given the periodic vibrations coming from below and the dumpster odor I would say we were seated above the trash compactor.

We would go back, just avoid sitting in the right rear portion of the restaurant to stay clear of the scent of trash.

We went for restaurant week this past weekend. The service was great. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Our water was refilled as soon as it was sipped. There were several food choices and this restaurant offered 4 courses. The food was excellent! Enjoyed the evening very much.

Went for restaurant week and the variety/food was delicious. 4 courses instead for the typical 3 courses. Happy hour pricing for drinks/apps is good.
