When we got there the hostest said it may take 45 minutes for our meals but the drinks, salads and appetizers came out really quickly. The restaurant was cute and the food was really good. The group of us would definitely go back.

Here for dinner on Friday night. Got our drinks right away but food took forever. When it arrived to fish was dry and tasteless with too much batter. Cole slaw was bland and fries limp. Won't return!

Friday night fish special. Fish sucked. Cole slaw was as bland as can be. Waited over a half hr for food. Won't return.

I had the Red, White and Blue Burger -- it was delicious. And, it was huge! Service was great. And, my two girlfriends and I had such a fun time hanging out there, and catching up at such a quaint location!

WAITED to be seated, while MANY tables were open. WAITED for drink order to be taken. WAITED for food order to be taken. Several of us ordered the Special; waitress returned much later to tell us they had just run out of the Special. Waitress apologized due to being short staffed in kitchen AND cooks in training. Appetizers finally arrived... More

We will travel several hours on a day trip to breweries. Use to camp at Yellow River and McGregor is such a sweet little town we thought: why not? But this was not worth the 2 1/2 hour trip. There were exactly two other sets of customers in the place and we had to wait to be seated. Waited about... More

Just left the place, we got there around 730 pm. It took a half hour to first get our drinks, the bartender kept coming over and asking us if our waitress took our order. Instead of her taking our order she was just rude about it. Then finally after waiting forever a different waitress came to help. There was barely... More
