Had dinner. Place walking distance from Red Roof Plus where stayed. Appreciated that even though large party sat near I felt given equal level great service. Had gumbo and fried catfish. Very good. Accompanying cornbread good without being too sweet. Really good hurricane.

Great options and specials, plenty to chose from and all options were fantastic. We tried 3 appetizers- gator, fried green tomatoes, wings- all tasty. Drinks were good. Meals were even better with large portions.

This is a really fancy place with a large variety of beers and good burgers and seafood. At the time of our visit, they had live music with a jazz combo of 12.

Came up to Hartford to see a friend's band play. Got a great table and excellent service. Reasonable charges for drinks and food is good!

It is a really neat place. The food was excellent and plentiful. The music was ok; sound system was awful. We had to leave quickly because the speakers were cracking and just bad. If the sound system was corrected, it would've been fun to stay.
