Comedy night at BQE every Wednesday not only has great comedy but delicious affordable food and drinks, I always get the stuffed salmon with the collard greens and mashed sweet potatoes every time I go there. It is a really great place to eat. It is a little small and boxy but its a great place for a date. On... More

1st Time was a charm! Kicked back with friends in front of the stage and truly enjoyed the Live sounds of Gritz & Jelly Butter. Service was superb. Food was delicious! Must try the catfish and green tomatoes appetizers. Ambiance was perfect for rekindling & connecting. Will be back!!!

The is a very cool place to have brunch, lunch, or dinner and hang out with your family and friends. The chicken and waffles are really good. Also, the restaurant have more of a club vibe that you will enjoy.

The food was good. Enjoyed the brunch environment with girlfriends. We got there early on a Sunday, so it wasn't crowded and the server was able to be very attentive. The crowd started to pick up before we left. There was a two-hour limit on the tables, so if you are wanting to stay a while keep that in mind.... More

I was in town visiting and stopped here with my cousin. I was hesitant because the surroundings look sketchy, but we enjoyed ourselves. The music was great, customer service good and food OK. We wanted southwest egg rolls but they were out. I had catfish and greens instead. The catfish was good but greens had too many stems. Overall, a... More

You must try the egg rolls & the wings..they're well prepared. The red velvet waffles and chicken are a must because they're sooooooo good. The meatloaf and salmon are also very tasty.... More

Great summer afternoon in Atlanta, Georgia with my college gal pals was a day to remember when we decided to brunch here. It was the right combination of a Day party, brunch and Bar experience all in one. We started our day with bottomless mimosas, bellini's, and sangria's. This was pricey at $20 per person. Then the menu separated from... More

The chicken and red velvet waffle are definitely their signature dish. The chicken was well seasoned and the waffle was sweet and tasty. The shrimp and grits were good as well, just could have used a few more shrimp. We were the only ones there for a weekday brunch, but the service was very slow. Our server Marlon was awesome...

My wife and I went here for brunch this past Sunday. Loved the food, great staff! We will be back! The red velvet waffles with chicken wings was good, so was the fried catfish with grits. We were the first ones there when they opened as for some reason or another, we couldn't make an appointment online. It was fun... More
