This place is pretty cool

This restaurant and bar is a little hike out of town and built into a cliff. The staff has always been nice but some of the servers really make the trip worthwhile just with their upbeat and cheerful service.

The owner was sitting at the bar when we went to pay and when I presented a groupon to apply to the bill, he became very irate and began cussing me out for using a groupon. He was drunk and loud and I was completely mortified. The groupon was a current promotion so he had no argument. We will never... More

Nice front porch tables, ice old beer and a full menu. Love the relaxed atmosphere and the remote location. Be aware that if the temp is below 60 you can't sit and be served on the porch. Over all 4 stars!!

It was a nice location near a waterfront campground. Although it was a holiday weekend, it was not crowded. That should have been an indication as to how the food is. The burgers were horrible over-processed tasteless meat patty things. We were very disappointed.

My standard meal is pulled pork, if they have it. Theirs and the pork 'n beans side was perfect, and my wife's grilled chicken salad was a full meal too. Got out with tea and come for under $25, doesn't happen often these days.

As it says in my title, I tried to eat here with a Groupon at 1230 on a Saturday but was told by manager Lisa that groupons are not accepted before 4 pm and it has to be eat-in with 2 people. This was not specified(time restrictions) on the Groupon site, as the Groupon service representative verified. As for the... More

In the past, this place was a delicious must stop. In recent years it has slowly declined and fresh food has been replaced with frozen food. The service is usually very friendly, but the food just is not what it used to value which has decreased the value for your dollar.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants especially with the scenic drive from where we live in Joplin. We recently stopped by on our way back from Neosho for lunch. We hesitated, since on our last visit, it took us an hour and a half to get our meal on a Sunday. We watched our server sit down... More
