    I love this place for Brunch. The service is super friendly, quick and easy and the food is great for meat and veg. Coffee is brilliant and a great selection of Brunchy cocktails too ;)

    A large american themed restaurant with a jazz blues vibe presents a great atmosphere for dining. Friendly staff, delicious food - pulled pork sandwich is amazing and great value for money!

    Awesome food and great drink selection, can't go wrong with the short beef ribs or the New Orleans gumbo, and finish your evening off with a Wibble. Nice atmosphere too. Really in love with the place.

    Such a fun night out, live bands, worth pre booking tickets to save queuing! Big area for dancing. Really well stocked bar, friendly bar staff. You can also eat here earlier on in the evening.

    Went there at lunch time so there were not much blues going on, but food was just amazing!! The spinach cheesy cream or fried ox starters were really good and the oreo donuts for desert were perfect!

    Best place in town! the food is superb, the 12 hour slow cooked St. Louis Pork Rib melt in your mouth and is divine! Great American bluesy atmosphere, some good strong cocktails!

    Beautiful little place with SO many choices of bourbons and other spirits. The fried chicken wasn't so great but the service was really good so I'll give it another go :) Live music every night!

    Not only an outstanding bourbon selection (4 roses small batch) but quite possibly the best Zombie I've ever had in London.

    Quirky "American" themed bar and restaurant. Big on BBQ here so if you don't eat meat you're limited to fries. But don't worry, there's plenty of Whisky. Absolutely get the Bulliet Bourbon.

    Went during the week at lunch time. Told you have to book a couple of weeks in advance for a Saturday. Great interior, very hip. Had the wings and pit beans. Hubba Hubba.

    Food was great and good cocktails too. Didn't have it but the lobster looked great and good value. Live band later was really good.

    Biggest ribs I've seen in my life. All the food was excellent. If you're wondering about the alligator, it's served like this.

    The food was average, nice sweet potato fries though. I think the decor and atmosphere would be the reason I would go back. It was a good experience overall and I would recommend for a drink!

    Great food. Monday Rib Nights is the best deal in town, £10 for a huge pile of food cooked to perfection. Beer selection can improve, though

    Large American style eatery that must be pretty good considering how busy it gets and the Oreo cookie doughnut with salted caramel

    Book in advance. This place gets really, really busy! Portions are large and appetisers aren't necessary. Was v. noisy on Saturday evening, music a bit too loud to converse around the table.

    Had the ribs and fries for mains. Starter was the alligator. Ribs were ok, not the best I've had. Starter was good, service was good. Very trendy place, was busy for a lunch time

    Book the Winnebago at the back if you have a group. It's costs nothing (you just have a minimum spend) and it's AWESOME!

    The manager Faiz is an absolute wankshaft. Claimed that we were LUCKY to get a table and should thank him, demanded I ‘look at him’ when lecturing me and rushing us to pay the bill. Proper rude.
