I don't know what to say about the food as I haven't ate there in a long time due to it being out of my way. But as far as the singing goes, its called karaoke. It's not for professionals dumbass, it's for amatuer people who want to sing. If your so good get up there and show them how to do it.

Who cares where they learned them. If so, they can actually follow the recipe. Their food doesn't taste like turd.

The last time i went there we waited fifteen minutes before anyone noticed we were there. Then we overheard the waitresses in back arguing over who would had to wait on us. No one ever did so we left and won't be back.

I hadn't been there since the fire, and some family wanted to go try it. After sitting there for 15 minutes we finally got a waitress. It would be different if they were busy but we were the only people there. Well us and the hippie that was referred to earlier. We ordered and it took half an hour to get our food. When we finally got to eat he wouldn't leave us alone so we could eat. My food was also burnt to a crisp. After we ate we were told we got homemade cake that came with our meal. Well we sat there for another 10 minutes and it never came. The waitress just stood 10 feet away and gave us a rude look while waiting for us to leave. Very unhappy needless to say. I highly recommend avoiding this place.

Anthony ( the owner of Fat Boyz ) did learn to cook at the homestead. I know this because I've known him for 15 years. Not taking away from him or his business because Anthony is on top of his game, but those are the facts. The Homestead used to stay full of customers, but when Fat Boyz opened they took a lot of Homesteads business. Then add to that an old owner ( no disrespect ) who is ready for retirement, and lazy drugged up waitresses at the Homestead, they are bound to suffer. In the right hands The Homestead could bounce back, but I don't see it happening any time soon.

When it burnt back in the day..During clean-up a dead cat was found in the kitchen. One of the owners laughed and said it was used for pest control. All the times you've eaten there..Just remember that. I'm sure the beloved cat has been replaced with a new one.This is FacT

At one time Homesteads food was the best, but now it's Fat Boyz.

All though I will have to say that Fat Boyz food has went down hill a bit.

Those waitress work there butts off, that's the way it should be at every place.

Fat Boyz has been open quiet a while. One of the owners (Homestead) daughers even worked for Anthony.
What has all that got to do with what the Homestead has become.

To make a comment, there are just as much drug heads at Fat Boys.. You just cant see them, there all on the back porch making drug deals. And, one of them left.. but i'm sure she'll be back. And, one's in the kitchen. And, as far as all Restraunts in Greeneville they all have this in every restraunt. I eat at the Homestead everyday and its been nothing but great. The waitresses make you feel at home. The lady that runs the cashregister is wonderful and makes you feel at home.. Never have had that experience that you all are talking about. But, have had it at other restraunts. The people that run it now since the old owner went out is wonderful people and would help you out with anything they could. And as far as the StarLight Club, you must of enjoyed it and the people that got the crap beat out of them must of liked it to cause you seen them there every weekend wanting more from what i hear.
