Biscuits & Blues

My wife and I introduced our somewhat staid brother-in-law, visiting from Boston, to Biscuits and Blues for a dinner show treat. The cover charge of $17.50/person is very reasonable considering the excellent talent presented on stage. Cocktails are well made and tasty. Table service is friendly, prompt and professional. We were never rushed or intimidated. The atmosphere is laid-back New Orleans. The food is great if you like your creole zingy and spicy but not on fire. We enjoyed the Gumbo, Crab Cakes, Jambalaya and Brisket of Beef. All were delicious but we agreed the Brisket was the best. The house is arranged so that everyone has a good view of the stage. There really isn't a bad seat anywhere. The place was full but not jammed. The servers have plenty of room to maneuver without disturbing the patrons. The performance by Earl Thomas was thoroughly enjoyable, made even more so by the very enthusiastic crowd who obviously loved his version of blues, rock and funk. Mr. Thomas is a very gifted performer and had us all groovin' there right along with him. We all left the place boppin' and finger poppin' with full bellies, a warm glow and a smile on our faces.

I tried this on my last night in SF. Damn! I wish I had know about it a week ago. I went there on the foot of the review above, and was definitely not disappointed. The music was fabulous, and the food terrific. The gumbo is spicy (as it should be) and the brisket of beef is melt-in-your-mouth. The staff were attentive and friendly, and I met a couple of intereting characters, including the local blues radio guy from KPOO (John Hayes) - it was unusually friendly, especially since it's so close to Union Square. Go there!!!

I make it a point to stop at least once when I am in town. The food is great, but the music is awesome. No bad seats in the house. I know whenever I go I will have a great time.
