    Had to wait 40 minutes to be seated with a reservation. Food was served cold, salmon I ordered didn’t come as stated on the menu. Server was good, food was not. I was visiting from out of town, I was disappointed and would not recommend for dining. However, the music was awesome!

    Having a fabulous live band play was a huge bonus for this evening out. Loved the Southern food too! The ordering on the IPhone was a bit daunting, but our server Kendra was extremely helpful. Great downtown spot!

    We were booked for a party of 9 on a Saturday at 6pm. The restaurant was moderately busy, the bar busier. Our server was amazing and brought our water immediately. The bad began promptly at 7pm and was exceptional. Unfortunately, the kitchen and bar were so disorganized and backed up that we did not get a corona in a bottle for almost an hour nor or other drinks until almost an hour and a half later. Due to the QR code ordering system and mix of server taking orders manually our entrees were served almost an hour between each other as well. Our server was cheerful and accommodating to say the least and I give her service a 5+ stars if possible. The dishes are overpriced and over cooked. They should consider serving bread or chips as the customers would not mind a long wait while watching the band. It would be more fun on a less busy night I presume.

    Awful. I feel bad for saying it. My Uber driver warned me ahead of time. I wanted it to be good.. it wasn’t. Drop the ordering by phone app.. do your job. Bring the food out together for all guests and make sure it’s warm. Way too much work and patience is needed for a very below average experience. As I walked out, there were several people waiting in line to go in. I wanted to warn them. Of course I didn’t.

    We had an amazing time! We came earlier than our reservation but was still seated right away. The waitress was very patient with us when it came to ordering from the QR code, food and drinks were brought out promptly and were delicious and strong. The live band was great as well! We are already talking about the next time we will be back. It was a much needed night out and a great experience from start to end!

    Entered the establishment was impressed with the location from the entrance through the revolving door to the fast courteous greeting the fast seating all was top notch. Ordering food and drinks with an app was a new experience for us but it was explained excellently by our server. The food was served quickly and hot. The moonshine mule was fascinating. When the music started the band was fabulous. The bread pudding and peach cobbler made me weep with joy. A must not miss experience.

    Although there was a wait with our reservation and we didn’t get a good table, the OWNER overheard our concern and made it possible that we could sit right in the front! The rest of night was phenomenal! It was a great way to celebrate my birthday. The band played the best songs and I even have the videos of me singing LOUDLY along with them. Overall my night was awesome and I left full and happy.

    Omg i do not remember this place being the way it was last night. The only saving grace was the music and their owner was so kind. The service was basically nonexistent, and the food was room temp, and bland. Annnd i do mean bland. I have never in my life had to put hot sauce on salmon before yesterday. We were there for a birthday and my friend actually sent her food back to the kitchen. The waitress seemed really overwhelmed and we definitely suffered for it. Service was so slow that one of our friends had to go get silverware for the table from the bar. The menu has also gotten significantly smaller than i recall. I’m not sure what happened here but my experience was a disappointment.

    I went for the live music and dinner. The band was good. Each person pays $5 pp to eat dinner when a band is playing. My complaint is you order via an app not server. Before you order you put your cc number into the app. I made a mistake on my order which I couldn’t correct on the app. When the young lady that brings the food out, came over I told her I made a mistake and wanted to take the order off, she told me I couldn’t. She said my cc was already charged and no way to correct. Also on the app you can see your order until you cash out. No way to correct, delete, edit once you hit the button. So I ended up going home with a dinner I didn’t want because they’d already charged my cc. Very disappointed for it to be my first visit there.

    Brought my parents here from out of town. I live here they do not.. Fried Chicken wings tasted great! My mom and I ordered the salmon with the mashed potatoes which came out cold and hard. The salmon didn’t have much seasoning which wasn’t expected because how good the greens and chicken tasted. My dad ordered ribs which were pretty good. They did not have their CORN MUFFINS which makes no sense to me which is one of the reasons i came. The band was good but they would play 2 songs than take a break which was ridiculous to me and tiring. Overall my experience pre covid was better.

    The "positives": The band (G-Clef & the Playlist) was VERY good! The draft beers were ice cold, fresh & reasonably priced. The ambiance was excellent. The "areas for improvement": The food was VERY sub-par. The smoked wings were under-cooked and had to be sent back to the kitchen to finish cooking them properly. The steak fries were tough (which is extremely unusual). The Mac 'n Cheese was tasteless (primarily because Gouda cheese was used instead of Cheddar).

    Such a great place to go in downtown Atlanta. Great live jazz band in the evenings. Ordering is on demand and staff was very attentive. Food is so good and generous portions.If you get dessert I recommend the praline bread pudding. Share it with the table. So good. Great atmosphere.

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday. We began our evening at the bar, both bartenders were great. The hostess came to the bar to advise us our table was ready and sat us. Our waiter was very professional and attentive. I can’t remember his name (he had dreads) We enjoyed the food and delicious peach cobbler. We truly enjoyed the live entertainment. A birthday to remember!

    Didn’t like that you have to pay for your food when ordering and add a tip then. The waiter never came back back to check on us, had to ask another server for service. It needs to go back before the pandemic

    This experience was not good at all. I had reservations for 7:30pm. I arrived at the restaurant and there was a line all the way back to the door just waiting to be checked in. We were told there was only 1 person that was checking everyone in and also seating everyone. My brother and I were not checked in until 8:30pm and weren't seated until almost 9pm. When we got to the table we were told that we had to scan the QR Code at the table to order. Once we scanned it and tried to place an order there was another tab that was already open so we couldn't order from the QR code because it was still filled with the order from the previous party that was sitting at the table. The food was terrible. All of it was cold and my appetizer came out nearly 40 minutes after I got my food. The waitress was nice enough to comp my appetizer. We were told the kitchen was severely backed up and the waitress kept apologizing. The Live music was great, but I won't be back.

    Security guards attitude was less than pleasurable and down right rude. I informed him we had a reservation and was rudely told, You need to tell the hostess and looked me up and down, rolled his eyes and stuck out his chest. This was my second time there and I enjoyed my previous experience so I wanted to bring my husband on our 29th anniversary. The food and drinks isn’t why I returned but the band and ambience however, my initial encounter ruined the mood. Then as we were escorted to our table, he followed us to ask me if I had a vape. I told him yes and he bent closer, looked me in my eye and told me I wasn’t allowed to use it. I told him I knew that and he just stood there as I sat my purse and vape on the table and wouldn’t leave. Finally my husband asked me to put it in my purse and I did so he walked away. I never attempted or implied I would use the vape but his entire attitude was very unwelcoming and unnecessary. I wanted to leave but since it was late and Saturday in downtown Atlanta…. I didn’t want to disrupt our plans for the evening. My husbands first time experience was just as equally dissatisfied. To spend $100 and poor customer service in Downtown Atlanta. I have referred plenty of friends to your restaurant but never again. Not sure if this is a black owned business but I hope not. Y’all need to do better.

    The initial wait was extremely long. Our reservation was at 7:30pm and we didn’t get seated until 8:40pm. The food was only ok and the drinks mediocre. You have to order on your phone and pay before getting your food. The live band was the best part of the night.

    I booked a reservation for just myself, I was stuck in Atlanta on a long layover. It was organised chaos to get seated with a huge queue of people and the staff seemed to have no idea what they were doing in order to get people seated. Waited nearly an hour to be seated. Once I was seated the ordering system they had via a QR code was failing, the waitress took my order and the wrong food arrived. The music was good, but the food was mediocre and the service was just horrendous

    Good spot. However, the only issues are: (1) No printed menus; (2) Having to order and pay on your phone; (3) 18% automatic gratuity added; (4) Having to pay on one bill; (5) Inconsistent application of dress-code. These issues individually are tolerable, but all together lessens the experience.

    I would not return. Noise level is unbearable. You have to order your food on your phone which is a confusing process and the noise is so loud the wait staff can't even convey the process easily. It would be faster to take your order the old fashioned way. They automatically add 18% and a $5 entertainment fee. All of that and orders came out wrong/missing and the quality of food was subpar. Wouldn't return.
