Perfect place to host an event! - An Eventective User

I held a family members surprise 50th birthday party here. It was PERFECT! The surprise went over really well, the Old 97 was extremely helpful and responsive during my planning process, the food and drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere and decor of the back patio area was outstanding. Very classy fun place to come with friends and family. They also had fantastic live music. All of the guests at my event enjoyed themselves and were very impressed with the decor, setting, food, and employees. I love this place so much and can't wait to come back.
