Great drink specials with ok food. Typical bar food, try the corn hush puppies!!! Typically head up for happy hour, a lot of locals eat there too. Nice place to hang out and watch a game as they have a ton of TVs.

Friendly service. Foods good, & if there is any problem with it they will fix it. It has a fun atmosphere. There are occasionally flies inside and that is not pleasant. But overall its a good place to go. We go there often.

And I say that because we went there twice and never seen one person try to take our order. The second time was for over an hour.

This bar and grill is one of the best places in Ottumwa to go to and one of the safest. The show a lot of sporting events and listen to requests. Some of their alcoholic beverages were a bit pricey, but more alcohol content than most bars.

Enjoyed this establishment very much. It is a smoke-free enviroment with several T.V.'s so you can watch any sporting event. They had a Large menu to choose from and the food was GREAT! Enjoyed the outdoor patio very much. Will definately go again and would recommend this place to anyone.
