“If your in the mood for southern comfort food, then this is the place to get it! They have great chicken and waffles and homemade grits straight from the South! Be prepared to wait in line for quite a while, especially on the weekends. We would say its worth the wait!”

Rock Club

“American fast-food style burger in a bar/restaurant with a nice outdoor patio. Most pubs in the neighborhood offer good, hefty burgers with plenty of dressings, this is a simpler, slightly smaller one, but solid and satisfying. This restaurant is attached to the lovely Mississippi Studios music venue.”

Bar

“A gorgeous, artsy old theater. You can order McMenamins' pizza slices and other pub food, and beer, and dine while you watch a show. I don't normally recommend movie theaters for a vacation, but this one is just beautiful and quite an experience in my opinion due to McMenamins artful touches on a vintage theater. ”
