“I really enjoyed my time at Relish my daughters and I went for our monthly girls night out and we were overly impressed with the food and the service. If you are in that part of town definitely drop in for a meal or make reservations to catch the soul stirring music well worth it.”

“The voodoo shrimp was tasteless... the salad was gritty... the greens, macaroni and chesse were horrible. I chose take-out, so I wasn't aware until I got home that they did not include any barbeque sauce for my ribs, which most definitely needed sauce. The salad dressing was good.”
