Great food, extensive menu, fun atmosphere, reasonable prices! Loved everything about it. Hubby did, too. Too bad they're not open for breakfast.

We are in town quite frequently for business, and looking for a different restaurant, the hotel recommended this place. We both ordered the Back Yard Burger. We were not told ahead of time that the burger can only be prepared well done, and the management will not allow anything less done. As a result the burger was quite dry. I... More

Our first stop at this place. Reminded me of eating in the Smokey Mountains! For appetizer we had the chips and cheese. Hands down the best chips and queso we have had in a restaurant.

This place has changed hands in the years that I have frequented it. Since I had moved I had hadn't been by that often anymore. The food is tasty.

Not a chain. Bar grill type of joint. Carry out casserole carry out frozen stuff in front section along with sauces etc. this is local place. It's good but I cannot say it is extra ordinary. Lots of locals frequent.
