STATS Restaurant Bar
Mi Mi took care of me and my family and friends. She was friendly and smiled and was quick attentive in addition to conveying empathy in our group conversation. Second to none an experience I will never forget! The entree was excellent! the atmosphere was amazing! Foundational Black owned. The place to be for everyone especially for all like me
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.
Decided to finally get out the house to hear their live music on Wednesdays and I didn't even get to sit down. The lady at the door was very nice, but waitress did not want to seat me because I was a party of one. I'm guessing she wanted a group for a better tip. The lady at the door said to go to bar, but the bartender had reserved seats, so nothing was available. The lady at the door asked the waitress to give me a booth athe back and she refused. I waited for seats at the bar for a while and decided to leave. I did or feel welcomed at all and will not be back, nor would I recommend this place.
All of the food was great. We have the crab grilled cheese, lobster Mac, fried shrimp and grits, and drunken French toast. All the food was hot and well flavored. Marissa was our server. She was very attentive, keep checking on us and making sure we was good. She never missed a beat with a great personality.
I really have a love/ hate relationship with this place! Its a black owned business and I will forever support my own but there are a few concerns when I go to this establishment. Ive had the pleasure of meeting the owner, he was a very pleasurable person but his staff doesnt always relay the same message as him. The bartenders can sometimes be unpleasant and Purposely slow. Security at times are very rude once I paid double the price to a security guard to skip the line ( just to realize he pocketed my cash) to let me and my friend pass as he held the line. Where Ive swore off ever doing a bad review on this place, because as black people we can be our own worst enemy Tonight one of the security over reacted and man handled a female occupant, to the point of disgust. The head of security I must say handled the situation way better than his coworker, allowing the occupant to be walked out by the people she was with. It is just a shame that some of the security would rather escalate a situation that wasnt violenthis actions couldve very well turned it into something way worse because of his actions. Staff should never be the cause of such activity. Treat people with grace, when needed! Smh!
