Black-eyed Sally's started out in 1995 as a tiny and fiercely independent BBQ and Blues joint. Over the next few years, folks took a likening to our cookin' so much that we had to expand twice in order to accommodate the crowds. We serve up award winning BBQ and Cajun cooking in a southern juke joint atmosphere.
Some of the awards we are most proud of are "Three Stars" from the Hartford Courant & Connecticut Magazine, The Hartford Advocate's "Best Of Hartford" and even a "Very Good" from the NY Times food critic. So grab some friends and come on down to taste some of the best cooking this side of the Mississippi.
Over the years Sally's has built a national reputation for bringing in some of the best recording artists on the blues circuit today. In fact Blues Reviews magazine rated Sally's as one of the best blues clubs in the USA.
For over 14 years, we have been Hartford's home of Jazz, Blues, Rock & Roots music. Many well known acts have graced our stage over the years. We've seen Larry Coryell, J. Geils, John Scofield, Lucky Peterson, Shemika Copeland and Ronnie Earl to just name a few. On occasion some really big names have dropped in to eat or jam at Sally's like Clarence Clemons, David Crosby, Graham Nash, the members of the Allman Brothers band, Dave Matthews and even the gang from American Idol.
So if you're into great food & good music, Sally's is your place. Come for the food & stay for the music.
