Very nice and clean place. You can dress up or not. Sneakers are allotted. The food and music is so good We got there by 9:30 for our reservation and the owner was so nice to us. Left around 1:00 place was getting crowed and people was still coming. There is plenty of security there as well. Will return on my next visit to Carolina. Thank you for showing us a good time.The spinach dish and songs was hot and good.
Champagne & French Fries
Good music, good service, aside from the wings )clearly frozen and dropped in a fryer unseasoned) and the artichoke dip being really greasy the rest of the food ordered was actually decent. Overall, it was a pretty basic hangout on a Thursday night (when I visited). No dancing & very little socializing if any from the patrons took place.
This isnt my first time visiting STATS and certainly not my last. STATS Restaurant & Bar has found a way to balance entertainment and food service which is very rare in todays climate. Often times when bar owners try to mix the two it turn into a disaster. I ordered the oxtails which was recommend by the bartender who was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. It didnt take long for my food to come which is a plus. There isnt much to complain about not to mention the parking is free. I will definitely be back. Its good to see a black owned business thrive.
Got to the location at 11:35, Google says it opens at noon. There were 5 other cars in the lot so I parked and waited until 11:55 to get out the car and form a line. Security informed me there were about 30 people in front of me (I was the only person up front) and that they open at 12:15. I asked how that works if they arent giving out placeholders and he responded that I remember all the cars, when people line up, you get in line after them. After being seated, our waitress was very attentive and the food was delicious. My party had the chicken Philly omelette, lobster Mac and cheese and fish and grits. Just be weary about your arrival time.
I love brunch at Stats. The food is always good and if you happen to have an issue they make it a point to make it right for you. I've also came in Saturday & Friday nights and it's always a drama free turn up. I recommend the Caribbean Rum Punch & the Fried Salmon & Grits.
