  • Amazing atmosphere, amazing food, amazing music.
  • The smoked salmon is very good...
  • If you haven't tried this place, you're truly missing an amazing treat. The food is absolutely amazing and the atmosphere is really elegant. There is also live music every weekend!!!
  • Food is amazing!
  • Went for lunch & had the brisket platter. Very tender, very smokey and a light tomato-based sauce. Good bit of fat on each slice but quite tasty and tender. Service: ok but very slow. Great atmosphere
  • Delicious. Easily one of the top restaurants in Rocky Mount. Haven't found anything on the menu that I don't like. Try their chili cheese fries appetizer and the macaroni and cheese is top notch.
  • Meat a bit too fatty. Sides are very good.
  • Perhaps the worst hostess in Rocky Mount. Don't expect to serves promptly.
  • The filet is the best on the menu, but my family and I enjoy everything on the menu. Clearly the best restaurant in the area.
  • Great strip and the mac and cheese!
  • Everything is great here. Great story, great drinks, great food, great conversation. Ask Elisa (Lee Lee) for her perfect manhattan. If you are in Rocky Mount you want to try this place out.
  • The chocolate cake is OMG good! Large portions on all the food.
  • Great food good place for Birthday parties
  • All the smoke meats the mac n cheese the cornbread was awesome also
  • We love this place! Everything from steak to sandwiches has been fresh and delicious. Great for anytime of day.
  • Elisa is great!! Best bar staff in the state.. She remembers orders for over 3 years. Great food. Great service.
  • Brisket is yummiest
  • Beef brisket was excellent! Filet mignon was perfect..This place is a gem!
  • Chicken, yams, collards, wings, sweet potato pie
  • Great service and pulled pork sandwich and smoked ribs. Worth the easy drive and the extra 8 minutes off of 95 to get to.
