Food was very good and the prices are reasonable. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and music. Servers were quite busy but managed to be very attentive.

When we booked the reservation we Were not informed that there was a $10 cover charge for each person! We either had to pay it or leave even though we were there for dinner.

Normally my experience is really great but yesterday there was one minor issue. We arrived early to try to get a table close to the stage. We were told there was nothing available and were seated in the back of the room.

There ended up being 2 tables in the front that stayed empty. I go here quite often and spend pretty good .

Me and my girlfriend went for a date a week ago and really enjoyed all of the food. The bbq was out of this world and the sides were to die for. Her fried chicken was a little dark for her liking but the entire experience was great

Valentine’s Day , n latanya Farrell performing . Got there was seated promptly and waiter was good . Couldn’t actually see the band from where I was sitting but music was awesome. Food was good and reasonably priced . Because of late notice I was seated outside of the actual band area but next time I will reserve earlier .

First time visit and won't be our last. Shrimp & Grits was outstanding -- shrimp cooked perfectly, grits nice and cheesy and flavor from andouille was wonderful. Only disappointment was the absence of black-eyed peas on the menu -- just assumed they'd be there and think they'd make a great addition to the menu.

Black Eyed Sally's is a great venue for listening to live music. Cover charge per person is reasonable and food was amazing. Only reason I did not give the food 5 stars is that I would prefer for a few more gluten free/healthy options. Given the fact the food is Southern in style, it all makes sense though. The staff were super friendly and the atmosphere is lots of fun, decor is great to look at! Overall a super experience, I will be back again!

It’s a great place for music. The food was only ok. Our waitress was very nice but service was REALLY slow...don’t know if they were short on staff or what. Very good music venue. Will probably eat there again in order to see a show.

Such a great time! Good food, almost like NOLA! Live musicians. The space is smaller than you would think. Ear plugs are necessary for certain musicians.

I was a little disappointed because we made a reservation for my brothers bday and noted that we wanted to be bandside . And I even called earlier in the day to see if we could add two more people to our reservation . I understood that there would be a 10$ cover but when I got there we were sat in the dining room and not where we requested . The food was really good though but we left right after dinner .

Lithe food was good, Mac and cheese was cold but our waiter was really nice and accommodating. Our host was rude and they couldn’t find our reservations

Wonderful experience! The food was delicious (we ate from the Taste of Hartford menu) and we had great value for our dollar! Fried chicken was crisp and the collard greens were smothered in goodness. I was nervous about eating at the restaurant, as I had just moved to the area from Charlotte, N.C., (so I know Southern food) but I was pleased that not only did the meal measure up but the hospitality did, too.

Friend and I came before a game at the XL Center. Get here early if there’s an event going on because it was pretty busy by the time we left. Food was delicious. Fried green tomatoes, cornbread, blackened catfish with green beans and sweet potato mash, and bourbon pecan pie tart...everything was great start to finish. Catfish was nicely seasoned and perfect with a squeeze of lemon on top.

Samantha was awesome and attentive. Food was amazing. Our party was very happy with their choices. The wings and Mac and Cheese that I ordered to go were to die for. I haven’t been to Black Eyed Sally’s in years and I’m definitely going to visit more frequently. I came for lunch but I want to come during dinner to enjoy the live bands.

Great atmosphere, service, and food. Came here for brunch before seeing a show at the Bushnell. I had the best fried chicken and Mac and cheese. Also try the strawberry mimosa.

The only disappointment was that there was a limited menu the night we went, so favorites like chicken & waffles and shrimp & grits were not available. Otherwise, all was great, as usual!
