This estabishment is no longer in business. Food/price were OK. Restaurant was embedded in a suburban strip mall and that's what killed the business. No visibility, not distinctive enough to be a destination regardless of location.
What a great place! I went to the old club a couple of times and they did have good bands but the old employees left a lot to be desired...From what I understand the old employees all have been banned and trespass charges brought against them..
Katy and all of the new employees have created a fun environment that you can go to and enjoy some great music and dancing! the staff is friendly and the bartender wont stick your cash in their pocket like the old place!
Keep it up guys! you have a great thing going and i will look forward to coming in again and again!
Good going firing the criminals from the blue bayou, if not for them that bar may still be there...!
Being from the La. swamps myself...the food is good the beer is cold. You can't beat the live cajun music. Go have you some boudin and crawfish. You won't regret it....ayiiiiiieeeee
The Best and ONLY authentic Cajun food in the Triangle. Great live blues bands on the Weekends. Go have a Po' boy.
To those of you who experienced slow service back in September... we have been working very hard the past few months to improve service so that every experience at the Cafe is a good one.
Service hours are posted on the web site.
I have absolutely no trouble believing the report from vanweiz. I dined with two friends at Artichoke Basil for the first time yesterday. I am a sweet-faced 29-year-old woman with enough waitressing experience to *never* be the least bit rude or off-putting to wait staff, EVER. And my two friends are the gentlest lambs in the world. When my caesar salad came to the table, tasting like an anchovy had curled up and died in it, I didn't know what to do because I so dislike complaining and didn't want to create a fuss. My sweet friend, however, wanting to make sure I had something to eat for lunch, took the offending salad to the counter to politely ask if we could exchange for a house salad, and he was--I kid you not--STARED DOWN by two surly employees, who finally ended the conversation by aggressively pointing at the salad and accusing him, "Well YOU ORDERED it." We absolutely could not believe it, it was SO out of hand. I left hungry and lost my $8. I will NEVER be back, and I will tell everyone I know.
Sweetest, plumpest, most juicy NC oysters, EVER! The Friday "Oyster Bar Special" has got to be the best value in town. Funky, casual vibe. Good BBQ and Certified Angus Beef ribeye steaks to satisfy even the non-seafood eaters. Fishmonger's gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from this Texan.
Great croque madame, great service. Nice little side spots to sit, away from the buzzing crowd that encircles this place every weekend, with good reason.
Great, inventive beer styles, though likely to be different from what you're used to. The tavern is a fun post-industrial space complete with a good juke box, pinball, and ping pong. They've upped the food options recently, but you can still bring in your own food or get it delivered, which makes it almost like an indoor beer garden.
Great spaces for a variety of art exhibits, including the large Raleigh Room, hallway, and display cases for 3-D work. Classes are offered in a good range of disciplines, for all ages.
What happened to the Blue Corn? It used to be pretty good. Yeah, there were issues with the servers, but the food was fresh and interesting. But when I dined there today, it was horrible. Canned sauces, canned refried beans and American cheese in the quesadillas. They are awfully spendy for such an inferior presentation. And to top it off our server was inept.
This is a shame... They had a good idea in a great location and they are committing suicide. You'd be better off at Taco Bell. At least if the food is as bad as the offerings at the BCC, it would be cheap.
Very disappointed when we went there to eat and check it out. I had the pleasure to talk with the Executive Chef before they opened and was excited that a new place was really expanding a menu to include gluten free breads/pizza dough and had many items on the menu for vegetarians to choose from. Totally different when we got there... I asked to talk with the Exc. Chef and it was not the person I met before (no longer there) and they aren't really interested doing that sort of meals now. The kids menu is either pasta or fried foods. My friend ordered BBQ ribs and felt he was eating Karo syrup. Just not what the atmosphere is lending to...So NO, it is NOT Vegetarian Friendly.
Awesome to the bone! We all got lucky , it was warm with no rain (!) or snow! First Night Raleigh was a fantastic melee of music , magic and people-hood. The Celebration of hope began with all day kid activities and makings, joyously , the People's Procession was drummed and piped along with the magnificent spirits created by Paper-hand Puppet Intervention worn carried and inhabited people by all ages . Taking to the streets with earth and the heavens represented is a meaningful community piece, how often do you show your life power and share it with your whole town? The tons of events from Baba Chuck Davis's Dance ensemble to ballroom at the Sir Walter Raleigh comedy , allll kinds of music , it was fantastic. The bands in City Plaza were ripping full of energy giving their all till the acorn ball dropped ( not once but twice, and fireworks x2 were supreme. For what ever first night has or hasn't been in the past, last night it was shining and wonderful. Getting people out, together , to ring in a new year is hope in hand. Making the message last beyond one night's party, might be a miracle, here's to a "new" year! We are banded together!
I went there for the lunch counter specials. I was very well impressed by the food I ate that day. I'll be back with my wife.

What a terrific urban pub and restaurant. Just like having Cheers in your own neighborhood but The Borough really has excellent food too. The bar staff is actually very entertaining. Definitely not a chain restaurant and owned by a woman who put hooks underneath the bar just so that customers could hang their bags or pocketbooks. This is a downtown treat!
Absolutely gorgeous, friendly staff and regulars! Large selection of tea, amazing coffee, declicious pastries from Miel Bonbons.... can't say enough.
All fresh vegetables , a great buffet for lunch. The owner is always making new items with his own spices . His soups are unique, his tasty Chai tea is unlike anything you ever had before as he makes it from scratch. If you want something cooked your way he will do it for you. The lamb is tender and the chicken is a delight.
I also love how clean it is and that the food is fresh, cooked daily . The owner really loves food and stays away from processed ingredients.
His deserts are wonderful as are the salads.
They serve good, fresh, healthy and tasty food . I only wish I lived closer.
very impressed with their selection, authenticity, and ambiance. good prices too.
Good example of how NOT to run a business.
Went by last week on a Wednesday night to see what's coming up on the schedule and the place looks closed down. Only old posters out front with no upcoming shows posted. Guess the old email list is history.
Looks like Katy took the money she raised and is having a private party til the money runs out. Sad to see! Merry Christmas and good luck!
Jack Sprat has great food at reasonable prices. Their potato salad is some of the best I have ever had, and the sandwiches and appetizers are really good, too, especially for the price. The staff that we have dealt with have always been helpful and friendly.
