Comfort Food for the Whole Family

A spacious layout made it enjoyable to allow young kids to just be themselves. The menu had lots of choices for red-meat lovers, salad lovers and finger food for kids. Plate portions were just the right size with a wide choice of sauces for the meat and dressings for the salads. The wait staff were... read more

Stopped in here for a business lunch. Exterior: the exterior is clean and presentable. It had a large parking lot with plenty of empty spaces. Interior: there were several different sections I noticed. To the right of the door, there was a bar area (where we were seated), to the left were several different dining areas with a lot of...

It has been awhile since I have been here to eat. So today I came in for a rack of ribs, had to take home half of the order. The ribs were meaty and very good, the amount of fries and potato salad portions were on the small side in fact you can say the potato salad portion was tiny.... More

We visited the restaurant during non lunch hours on a Saturday. The restaurant was decorated in a cozy, lodge theme. Clean restrooms, huge bar area separate from the main dining room and even patio seating. We chose to sit in the dining room to watch a football game on the large screen tv. Our waiter literally had no affect about... More

She was also our waitress on the outside patio and she was great - friendly, funny and she gave us great service. the food, however, was another story... we come here often and, the last several...

As a barbecue joint, it's fine, but don't expect anything healthy or low fat on the menu. You ain't gonna find it.

I wanted to eat some good pulled pork, and my uncle recommended me this place. We ended up going with 4 people to this place. It was a Saturday but it wasn't too busy, the waiter seated us quickly and we ordered the burnt tips with chips as a starter to eat together. The tips were tender and smoky, and... More

This is one of the places we ate at during our trip. The food was decent. I was hoping for fall off the bone ribs but they really didn't. Still good flavor, good drinks and dessert. It's conveniently located next to a shopping area including Dick's sporting goods. Can't judge a place just by one meal. If there's a next... More
