The service here was great, but the food was terrible, We wanted to send back 75% of everything we ordered, but didn't, because we figured it looks obnoxious to do so. The guacamole tasted like it was straight of a can with a few onions chopped up and thrown in to make it look like it was homemade. The pizza was so salty and greasy that I couldn't stand to eat more than one piece - it was also overcooked on the bottom, giving the name "Crisp" new meaning. A blackened chicken sandwich was anything but blackened, and was instead rubbery with no flavor. The entree priced salads were small and looked like something I could have assembled at home, with one overwhelmed by cheap croutons. Finally, our drinks were so watered down that at least one of them, we could not taste any discernible alcohol. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT, we will not be returning. We boxed up everything to take home and left hungry. Also, a note about the atmosphere: nice, hip atmosphere, but it was ruined by classic rock ala Led Zepplin playing. I don't go to Brady Street to hear WKLH type music.
I went to Lo Cash Live on Friday evening after hearing some good things about the food, music and owner. This BBQ, Beer and Bands venue exceeded my expectations! The interior is warm, southern and comfy. They also have a large outdoor patio, complete with a parking lot. I was able to try the bbq beef brisket and fried okra. The beef brisket was among the best briskets I ever ate. It was tender, great balanced sauce, delicious! If you like fried okra, you will love it at Lo Cash Live. The staff was very attentive, friendly and unpretentious. Its tough to find places that have as good of a staff. This place also has country/bluegrass bands playing music on stage every night. It was a fun, lively ambiance and it seems like everyone in the place was really enjoying themselves. I was very impressed with this place SO MUCH, that I returned the next night for their NYE celebration. Couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate the new year than listen to great music, eat bbq, and all you can drink for $20! I cant wait to come back in the summer time!

We had our wedding at the Lodge on 5/12/12 and it was perfect. I chose the Lodge because the food was excellent there during brunch, and after having our food tasting for the dinner, it was great, too. We got many compliments from our guests, which was awesome, because wedding food usually sucks.The ambiance was perfect for our wedding, and very affordable (the minimum for dinner was easily a few thousand dollars under that of the other venues we looked at). Alexia, the coordinator that we worked with, was very helpful and knowledgeable about the business, and was able to offer suggestions.The ceremony and reception were BEAUTIFUL, the servers and bartenders were very polite and prompt, and everything went perfectly. I would absolutely recommend them to friends and family for their brunch and as a venue.
