We arrived early for our reservations and were seated right away. Our waitress was nice but it seemed like she was overworked with other tables. We thoroughly enjoyed the band! They were absolutely outstanding!!!

The food was delicious. The waiters were knowledgeable and honest. There was a live band and the music was an added bonus. However, I was surprised to see a $5 entertainment fee added to the receipt. I would definitely eat there again when I’m in the Atlanta area.

We set time for 8:45PM right after work and l was surprising my husband with a nice date (on me). I assumed with a live band and restaurant closing at 10 that the live band would end at 10 not 930PM. By the time we were seated with being on time we only got to experience music for 25m. It really defeated my purpose of coming to see a LIVE band.

I really loved the salmon with the crawfish beurre blanc... I also enjoyed the collard green spring rolls however the banana pudding was basic and something I could have gotten at a random carry out or grocery store on the East Coast :-(

We felt welcome as soon as we walked in. Brandy, our server, was the best! Our food was delicious. My husband had the fried chicken, and he said it was the best he’s ever tasted. Don’t tell his mom ;). I had shrimp & grits and it was amazing! The entertainment was fantastic. We laughed, sang, and danced the entire time. We had the best time. This will go into rotation for our date nights in the future for sure. We can’t wait to go back!

Truly enjoyed the band, Soul Cartel. They were exceedingly good and I loved that they played a variety of songs suitable for all audiences.

The food was good, but lukewarm. I ordered the juke joint chicken with collard greens and mashed potatoes (normally comes with Mac n Cheese). Great flavor and portion size.

The staff was welcoming and gracious. I will return!

Our group of four had a wonderful time. The owner Terry met us and introduced us to the singer, Regina. The moonshine was something to try for the experience and the taste. Had a great time!

I made reservations for myself and my husband for his birthday. When we arrived the greeter was very nice he asked for my name and he had someone to take us to our table. We sat down the live band was playing and they were great. The waitress came to the table and we ordered our drinks and looked over the food menu. My husband ordered our food I went to the rest room to freshen up. In within the next 5 minutes our food was ready. Everything was delicious. The waitress was awesome and we will be coming back. Thanks for the hospitality... The drinks were very good...

Our server seemed a little irritated. We ordered a bottle of wine ($32.00). It was opened, I tasted it, did not taste like Chardonnay. Gave it to my mate to taste, we commented on the watered down flat taste. We looked the brand up on line which sells for $4.99 at stores and Georgia Brown’s had the nerve to charge $32.00! My food was OK, it has been five years since I ate here and the food is different.

I was celebrating my wife’s birthday and was disappointed.
