Yummy breakfast

Although the kids weren't thrilled with their pancakes for some reason, I found my breakfast tasty. My husband enjoyed a concoction of smoked meats that're unique on a breakfast menu. We liked the location and hung out with a local manatee when we finished eating.

That this is a local dive. You have the obvious regulars at the bar. Thought ordering the daily specials was the way to go, unfortunately not. Obvious reheat of frozen foods:( If you are looking for cold beer and a local atmosphere, go. If you are looking for food, don't.

Not the place for everyone but it was always packed. We went for dinner and drinks then back for breakfast the next morning and the kids wondered where we were. So they went back for dinner the next day! Comfortable clean funky fun and perfect

Very glad to see that things haven't changed here. The bbq was great. Besides having to ask 3x for our check, with a tired 6yr old, it was great all around.

I told her about the mistake and she took them right back and said she would fix it. They just drenched the wings in BBQ sauce and brought them back. My... More
