We waited over 40 minutes for 2 individual pizzas and a kid's chicken fingers plate. We saw our waitress mix up two other tables' orders. When the patrons noticed, she asked them if they had taken bites yet and when they said no, she switched their plates around. Yuck! Our food was good when it arrived, but it wasn't so... More

The sour grapes review that precedes this one is unfortunately not accurate. We had BLT & Philly steak, one with fresh cut fries and the other with onion rings. Fries and rings are worth the visit, sandwiches were average. Beer cold and service friendly. Didn't have a burger so cannot comment on that. Was asked twice if we wanted a... More

The ranking of a five in a little town doesn’t mean a thing. We were hoping to enjoy some grilled burgers, but the creek did not deliver. The burgers were definitely fried and small. Puny would be a better word to describe them. My wife ordered a hamburger and I ordered an elk burger with onion rings. Even the onion... More

The on-line menu needs to be updated. I was all ready for a club sandwich but it is no longer on the menu. Great fried mushrooms and the personal pan pizza was very good. Need to develop a unique signature sandwich and a few sandwiches that aren't already available at every other restaurant in town. Service was very good for... More

Casual place with deliciously satisfying food. When you are hungry from all the outdoor activities, gambling, or museum and site visits you can grab something here and enjoy a cocktail with it. Loved by the locals and affordable by those on Vaycay.

It is a little hole in the wall, but great food. Don't be deceived by the bar in front. Think of it as a Pub in England. Great burgers, Patty Melt, Pizza, and Grilled Cheese sandwich.
