We were driving around on a rainy afternoon when we stumbled onto Big Pecker's. Only reason we decided to try this place was because of the name. We could not sit outside on the cool swing tables because of the rain. So we went in. The hostess greeted us, I could not really understand her as her accent was a... More

We are a family of six so we understand along wait. We were told a half hour but that turned into a hour. We my teenage daughter asked the girl she rudely relied that she said our name several times. Which was certainly not the case as we were sitting in the waiting area the whole time. I believe to... More

From last year even more run down food is maybe ok they really need to get a hostess with a better attitude. The waitress was like she was in a hurry and had to do something and it was not that busy. Over all most likely won't go back unless going as a group and they really want to eat... More

we went with a group of 8. Our group varied from 5 to 55. Food was good. The restaurant is know for its 1/4 Burgers. It was like earing in a sports bar minus the noise. My fries arrived cold and the waitress brought me another order without a fuss. The drinks are large and you probably could share but... More

Amazing buffalo chicken wrap and tasty fries. Fast service and fresh food. If you eat inside don't look up - the ceiling is gross, vents ate dirty and ceiling leaking & dripping

After being ignored at BJ's we popped in here for a drink and found the staff very friendly. The space itself seemed suited to the weekend warrior crowd, but on a Wednesday afternoon it was quiet enough to enjoy a conversation and a few drafts.

Outdoor seating is nice. Other than that, strictly average. Average food, average service. Property a bit run down. Pretty much a tourist spot. Wouldn't go back again. I have a problem with places that list Blue Moon and Landshark as imports, just so they can charge more for beer.

The food is average and of course over priced. We liked the patio setting where you swing as you eat. We got hamburgers and fries, salads and fish tacos. Bill was about $150.00. It was the kind of place I would not go back to on my own but if kids and hubby wanted I would. It wasn't bad but... More

My first experience here and I'm ready to never return again. First, me my husband and children ordered potato shins as an appetizer and it was by far the grossest thing I've ever had at a restuarant. It looked like it came straight out of the freezer and was just thrown into the deep fryer. The kitchen messsed up my... More
