I couldn't even eat half and I really tried. There wasn't anyone there, however we went on a Sunday during lunch hour. It looks like a... read more

We had our wedding here. They told us that we could do a 4 hour party. Wedding and reception. They charged us almost $200.00 dollars more than they originally told us just to have the recital the night before! On the day of our wedding they told us that we could come early to get ready! Now they are saying... More

Skip this place if you want a good meal and a good mixed drink. Steak was like cardboard, bloody mary tasted like watered down tomato juice. This place is good if you just want a beer or maybe play keno. They also have karoke if you like that.

This is Your neighborhood bar and grill. nothing stands out, service is not the speediest nor the slowest. Food is fair and the staff do their be to be friendly. A fair place to get a couple of beers and talk silly with the boys while munching some nachos and watching the game.

Service can be slow at times. They do have some specials that make up for the mediocre food. For a local bar they do have a good beer selection.

Even though short staffed and busy, waitstaff was friendly, courteous and efficient, our ice tea glasses were never empty.. Meals reasonably priced and filling.

We were delighted and quite surprised when Chef Austen came out to our table to see if we were pleased with our meal. He even asked if we had any suggestions for him. He is a pleasure to meet and what a talent. The food was very tasty and his presentation was very good. If you go , make sure... More
