Food was average and over priced. Atmosphere was typical with graffiti and memorabilia on every surface. Went because Morgan freeman owns it and felt most everyone else dos too. Entertainment was good but no more so than in Ohio. Probably unfair with only 1 night...More

Great music and food, but do not like drinking from a plastic cup. Atmosphere and authentic Blues music was perfect!
