I've visited this place a few times when in the area. The country music is great and the atmosphere excellent, people are very friendly and the food is quite okay. I look forward to visiting again. So why the poor rating? There aren't enough waitresses and therefore the service is so slow that you'll want to walk before you die... More

The food was average. The menu is different. The atmosphere is unique. We are not sure we would go back.

Have lived in the area for years, but for some reason never really tried this place. Maybe because of the Country Western Theme. (Full disclosure I'm not a fan of Country or Western music). But the wife and I went for an early dinner (No Band) and the place wasn't real busy yet. We had heard they were know for... More

This is a local hotspot for country western. I stop here on the run between jobs and have a snack or lunch. Friendly service, decent prices and good food.

I met my husband here one evening when I stopped by to meet friends for a group of birthday celebrations. The food is great, the drinks are hefty, and the beer really COLD! They have live music and dancing and a fun group of people are regulars there. Always have a good time when I'm there...

Had dinner with my wife here last night. The food was great. I had smelt and the wife had chicken with homemade French fries. The fries are by far the best in the city. The service along with the music was great. Made for a wonderful evening out if you liked country western music.

Great service... couldn't have been more kind, attentive, or knowledgable. I had a clear view of the kitchen and was so impressed. One of the cooks was constantly stocking, cleaning, and organizing as he worked... what a valuable employee! And to top it all off... a real feel good band!

Good burgers, great wet burritos, really great fries and a variety of beers, including PBR on tap. Not a fancy place and in the winter it is mostly heated by a wood stove. Not the place to come for fancy, but is the place to come for good, reasonably priced bar food.

I've always enjoyed the Hayloft for it's quiet, rural atmosphere. Have never had a bad lunch here, and the beer is always cold.
