Brittany's Spa Salon
I don't know if I got the usual service or if they were holding back because I bought a "deal of the day" certificate. The haircut was good. Basically just a trim. Service was good and the girl who cut my hair was very nice. The mani/pedi left a lot to be desired though. The girl who did the mani/pedi (Katie maybe?) was very sweet, and easy to talk to...but the pedicure chair was broken...and couldn't be operated with the remote. The massage feature hurt to the point that I had to ask her to turn it off.The mani/pedi just wasn't the same as I've had at other salons. I'm used to getting a decent leg/foot massage with the pedicure, and more than a 30 second hand/arm massage with the manicure. What would normally take over an hour at my regular salon took all of about 25 minutes at Brittany's.While it didn't suck...I wouldn't pay more than what I spent on the "deal of the day" certificate: $39.

Aunt M
There is a server here who is the worst person I've ever seen as far as customer hospitality. She is awful, she is extremely unprofessional, and if I managed that location I would relieve her of her duties.She is light complexioned with red curly hair, and tattoos on her forearm, light eyes. They don't wear name tags so a description is all I have to go by. This is my 5th occurrence dealing with her, and I will no longer give my business, my money to this location for food or fuel, and I'll encourage everyone I know to do the same. As long as she is employed there, I won't patron there.If you love the food like me, may I recommend the location across from Blount Island. The attendants there are always courteous and never snap at customers or move like she doesn't care if you have to return to work or not. They should be given a bonus for their service, with the volume of people they interact with daily.

Linda's Wooden Spoon
My son was visiting from out of town and always likes to go to different restaurants. I had heard through the "grapevine" about this new restaurant and we came from west side of Jacksonville just to eat there. A couple of times in past I had been to same location when it was a seafood restaurant and decorated with fish etc. Was surprised how nice it looked with fresh paint and decorations. Linda was there and welcomed us. I had traditional breakfast and my son had scotch eggs with grits etc. His eggs were a surprize to him. Hard boiled eggs inside saurage shaped like an egg. Surprize when you cut into it. He said it was delicious. Wonderful biscuits. I loved my breakfast and he loved his too. Generous portions and prices very reasonable. I will be back to enjoy again.

Chisam Dominican Salon
Chimena is the realist hair care stylist I have known, I have been going to her for over 10+ yrs....when I came to her she not only help my hair grow long & strong but she showed me how to care for it @ home... My hair was brittle, damaged & falling out... she told me to stop doing what ever I was doing( dieting) go natural & eat more fruits / veggies & take some vitamins she recommended.... your hair is what u eat & the body will strip the non vital organs ( hair, nails & skin) of nutrients... I now have a head full of healthy hair & I let no 1 cut relax or treat my hair but Chimena... Chimena is a hair care specialist that has many years of experience & she loves what she do... That is priceless & today u can't find hair stylist that know & love there craft..

It was my first time as a customer here and it wasn't the greatest experience. I arrived early and when my stylist came and took me in. She did wash my hair but then she had me wait on the chair with wet hair while taking care of a previous client. It took about 30 minutes of my appt time. That wasn't so bad and she did give me a haircut but she didn't dry it even though she dried my bangs and I thought that she would do the rest but she didn't. I told her I would like it dried and she said she would have to take care of he next client before doing me. I don't know if I made a mistake with my request or what, but it didn't feel right to me that she used some of my appt time for another client. I don't know if I'll come back again. :( I was really disappointed.

The Weekend Cafe
After hearing good things about this restaurant from a relative, I decided to give it a try. First let me say that this restaurant opens only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (hence the name The Weekend Cafe) I went in last Sunday, and I ordered a $10 plate which included; rice and gravy, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, potato salad, corn bread, and your choice of meat (they have oxtails, smothered/fried porkchops, baked/fried chicken,ribs, and chitterlings, but I opted for smothered porkchops) Everything was delicious, and the pork chops were very tender. To top all of that off, I ordered a slice of red velvet cake (it costs $2), and it was by far, the best I've tasted. Needless to say, I'll be back.

Compliments By Sherry & Co
I am new to the area and wanted a great place to call home for my hair needs. I asked the few people I knew of any places local to where I live and they referred me to here. I found a groupon special and took the leap. I ended up with Betty and she was terrific I was making a big change to my hair due to medical reasons and Betty was just awesome! This place has the nicest people and at home atmosphere I ended up very happy indeed with my results and Booked my next appt with Betty already. I have to add that this place was also fun! Yes fun the conversations between the stylists and customers left me laughing and smiling. I now have a place to call home. Thank you Betty!Debbie J.

I had my hair cut and colored by Sami and haven't had a hair experience this good in as long as I can remember. I felt completely cared for and left with my dream hair. She even took the time to test the color on my hair and go back and touch up things to make it just right. After having less than ideal hair experiences in the past, Sami's attention to detail was refreshing and reassuring. The salon itself didn't leave a huge impression on me, but I believe that was simply because I was so enamored with the rest of the process. The atmosphere was cheerful and relaxing. Cost was on the higher side, but I felt it was worth it for what I received.

Was serviced here by three different independent stylist and received the upmost professional service and treated with mutual respect as a client. Im not your typical client as I myself am a stylist and own a salon and after reading some of the reviews on here Im concerned as to the communication of both the stylist and client. An experience or service can only be as good as the attitudes of the people serving or receiving. I can only speak on my own experience and what directions I gave were followed, what concerns I had were addressed, and the end result was what I expected. From start to finish as a client I was very satisfied.

Shazam Dominican Salon
I went here once but never again! My hair was beautiful but the stylist tried to over charge me for the service rendered. I was charged 55 for the Dominican blowout, 10 for the deep conditioning treatment and quoted another 10 for the trim. She spoke to the other stylist in Spanish saying that she already charged me for the trim but not to tell me ( meaning the deep conditioning treatment was supposed to be included) she didn't know I spoke Spanish. All of a sudden the trim is free. She also overcharged me for the oil I bought from her. Never again! Beware if you go there and don't know Spanish you may be overcharged.

Just a moment...
