My wife and I had a fun time there in early November. They had a great selection of local and regional craft beers. Perfect venue for music. And I always love a place that has pool tables.

I must admit, we showed up before they opened in the morning. They said come back in an hour, so we went next door to the Delta Blues Museum. When we came back, there were no signs of adult life. Almost as if from a novel on the Delta, a young boy of about 8 years was behind the counter... More

A major blues club, half owned by Morgan Freeman, solidly "blues" in decor, music, just a great classic, non smoking, stiff drinks, two pool tables, had a great time there, you will too if you like the blues...

My wife and I visited Ground Zero to check off an item on my bucket list. Not only are we Blues fans, but we love one of the owners, the actor Morgan Freeman. The night we visited there was a local act performing; this was mid week so we didn't expect anything special. There was a $5 per person cover... More

Visited on Friday to check it out. We decided to have lunch and came back for dinner. Staff makes the difference. Great people. My food was okay. Nothing special. My wife had bake potato named after Morgan Freeman. It was great. Our friends had the cat fish. Loved it. Very light. Entertainment at night was local talent playing the Blues.... More

We were there on a day when they didn't have live music. (The local venues take turns having live music each evening and it wasn't Ground Zero's night). But the venue looks like it would be great. It's relatively large but laid out very nice. The atmosphere and "decorations" are really neat. The food was great!! Definitely worth the visit!!... More

What more do you need for a decent, cheap(ish) night out? Passing by on road trip and this place was recommended in a guide. Looks like a place you shouldn't drive to or go in after dark but staff so friendly once you get inside. Food hot and quick to arrive, beer cold and quickly consumed (and so repeated). Band... More
