“Basement?? - Great!!”
Review of The Basement

The Basement
Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

After reading reviews prior I was a bit concerned that it would be disappointing.. however both the food and entertainment were exceptionally good for the money. Lovely small intimate venue with good service and a great night.

It 's been going for 40 years or more. It is open 7 days a week and has many great artists appearing there. It is not too loud either. it is very intimate.

The range of music played here is fabulous but I wouldn't advise the ho hum food and thumbs down for serving decent wine in those horrid tiny old fashioned glasses.

Order food get a few beers and leave. We waited 45 minutes for the food and left. The bartender voided the bar bill.

The Basement
We stopped in the nearly empty restaurant that sits above a jazz/blues basement, for drinks and a casual dinner. We ordered drinks and dinner and waited. And waited and waited…finally asked where our food was and was informed it was “very busy” but it should be ready in 10 minutes. We waited. The delay was so long that they offered us a complimentary drink which we declined; we just wanted to eat! Finally after waiting over 50-60 minutes for simple sandwiches we were pissed and left. The waitress couldn’t locate our drink order so we didn’t pay. It obviously was out of the waitresses control, but the service was terrible and I sure don’t recommend it!
