Pool room if your interested. Outdoor patio in season.

If you love a good hamburger do yourself a favor and check out the Back Forty. My personal favorite is the Barnbuster. I always have mine with Swiss Cheese but you have other options. Add a side of their Chili Cheese Fries and it's worth the shame you're going to feel later for having indulged.

The Back Forty is a dimly lit, bar environment, so don't expect anything fancy, but do expect good food, acceptable... More

Bar and grill that is suitable a family meal. Many families come in after a little league type activity for a meal. The menu is burgers, hot dogs, fries and onion rings. You can get a bowl of chili too. A popcorn machine serves up free popcorn to chase away the "hungrys" while your meal is being prepared. Service is... More

They are frozen hamburger patties very average nothing special. I can't remember what my husbands meal was called but it had ham, nacho... More

Didn't want to wait 40 minutes at the franchise food choices and saw the good rating on TA. Great service and neat atmosphere. Limited menu but everything is good . Will be back again!

Very dark place. Burger tastes like Burger King. Waitresses are rushed. Confusing place. Good popcorn.
