We ate here two nights Fantastic wait staff. Quaint decor. The food both nights was sub par. There isn't many choices in Newberry so what do you do. I'm sure I'll be back since McDonalds or Pizza Hut are not high on my list of places to eat while on vacation.

We visited with our daughter, son in law and 18 month old grandson. Our server was great and saw our grandson was getting a little fussy, so she picked him up and took him for a little tour around the place looking at all the animal mounts around the place so we could finish our meals. Very nice little restaurant/bar

There were several choices in this small town; a few that had slightly higher ratings. I choose this place for dinner because the owner seems to show a great deal of interest in what his customers think based on the fact that he reviews and responds the reviews that are posted about his restaurant. Chasity was my waitress. She provided... More

Well thank you for your review, it's true that sometimes reviews can be a bit difficult to weed through. I have found that establishments with many reviews and not all perfect are most likely more accurate. We do again thank you and chastity will be pleased when i share your story!

Excellent food and nice atmosphere! The beef and gravy over homemade bread was scrumptious and only wished I had ordered more than a half order. Onion rings were soooo good too! You can get small items or huge steaks. Would definitely go out of my way again to eat there again. So many choices to pick from.

We came for drinks and an appetizer - and had the large combo appetizer plate. Between two of us, we could not finish it! The onion rings were super good, as were the wings and riblets. I didn't care for chicken fingers, but my companion said they were good. Nice selection of beers, great place to unwind. Not to busy,... More
