We were in Clarksdale long enough for two visits to Ground Zero. You experience kind of depends on the live music. We caught a white band that covered rock songs and tried to infuse blues into the music. They were competent but didn't do much to move the crowd. Next time was a great blues performance by a local musician... More

We had the chance of having 5 bands playing that evening. Great blues with local singers and from Nashville to help out the fundraising to Ground Zero Festival that will be held next August, a must see to music lovers. The Festival is completely FREE, something very rare in today's society. I heartily recommend.

Band was playing when we arrived and they were great! Ordered a cocktail and a soft drink but never received them. Listened to the band for about 30 minutes and then were told to pay cover charge if wanted to stay. Were not happy we could not get our drinks so we left.

We stopped here on a one night stay at the Shack Up Inn in Clarksdale, and decided to come for dinner, loved dinner, stayed to watch a bit of the band before heading over to Red's Lounge. The food was terrific and I love the whole atmosphere of Ground Zero Blues Club. Cannot complain about a thing, the service was... More

We had especially stopped the night in Calrksdale so that we could soak up the atmosphere and experience an evening at Ground Zero, what a disappointment. We knew the band was a Rock covers but they were bored and boring and lacklustre. True they were having issues with their sound equipment, but they were only going through the motions, no... More

Absolutely amazing! Great music and great service. Had the pleasure to be served by Tee who was the best - Morgan she needs a pay rise! She made our night. Great jam night listening to the blues...

There's no doubt this place is a tourist attraction but still retains some authenticity music wise. Some very good musicians, the highlight for us being Josh "razor blade" Stewart. A great night out.

We already had dinner, so i can't tell anything about the food (the pecan pie was tasty though). But our waitress was as tall as friendly, the band (a local blues trio) a joy to listen to and we enjoyed our stay without any drawbacks - recommend!

Thank azche24
