Seems like whenever I sure for a jazz show at the kitchen the music's good. The food from the crabcakes to the ""not so Cajun chicken" is always top notch. The staff is friendly and the cover change is reasonable. We should go more often.

Monday nights jam session is great. You get to hear a lot of local jazz performers. They have salsa on Thursdays. Sometimes swing dancing on Tuesdays. Headliner jazz bands play on the weekends. Great food made by the owner. He's a great trumpet player too!
