Before this restaurant had their fire, it was a great place to eat...good food, cooked properly and excellent waitresses. Since they rebuilt and reopened, it has been very subpar. Food is not as good, not cooked to the previous standards and the service is way below what we used to expect. We have gone there a couple of times since... More

Terrible experience at Sublette's. 15 minute wait for drinks, 45 minute wait for food, 15 minute wait for our checks. When addressing our miserable trip with the owner nothing was corrected or addressed. She made me realize the problems start from the top, and work their way down. Will not be returning. Not worth the time or money.

Food was very good. Family place. Wait staff was pleasant and atmosphere was comfortable. I thought it was clean and will definitely come back next time we go to Lake Shafer.

When this place first opened everything was fabulous. The ribs, a feature were the best. My last dining experience, the ribs were horrid, undercooked, tough. Sent them back and ordered whole catfish...not what I wanted. Disappointing to have to settle for something else, then charged the FULL amount even after finding a hair in the cole slaw...really?? The service here... More

We got several different meats, the ribs were good, the sausage was ok, the chicken was good, the brisket was good, but all of them were bathed in sauce that was pretty spicy for supposedly being mild. I would eat there again, but get everything dry with sauce on the side. The sides were good, and so were the deserts.

My daughter & my wife & I eat there every once in awhile. Just sit back & enjoy. The ribs are mouth watering. Just try and not get the sauce on the front of your shirt. It's my kind of place.

Had a Christmas gathering with friends. Prime rib was excellent, bread pudding was perfect and the service was top notch.

We've eaten here twice and both times the hostess was inconvenienced by us being there, both times our waitress was terrible. (different waitresses) Forgotten items, cold food, waiting a long time for check, never checking back on us. the food was ok-the brisket was delicious though.

We try to make all the buffet dinners during the year...Usually Easter, Mothers Day and Fathers Day. The selection is everything one could ask for. They have a full staff onhand and are always eager to do what the customers want. The other times of the year, we do our level best to partake in various items on the menu....wait,... More
