Okay BBQ, Pizza was good however

We came with he three kids and they wolfed down the pizza. The BBQ was only okay. I order double turkey and the portions were smaller served sandwich style.

We've been eating JJ Twigs pizza for several years. (We did prefer the location they used to have at DIerbergs because of the view.) It's everything we love in pizza. Thin crust, lots of cheese, slightly greasy. We get pizza almost every time we're in town.

Probably the worst place to eat at the lake. I live here - I know. Is it worse than the McDonald's in the strip ? Yes because you expect more but don't get it. I've been here a few times. Every time it's not just poor but it's atrocious.

Nice family restaurant, full menu. The Risky's bar is a great way to watch a game and the fish tank in the main dinning room will keep the kids busy.

We often go here with our family. Our kids love it and the atmosphere. The pizza is very good. I love their salad. Also have good ribs. They will deliver too. Family that owns this is great! Very friendly!

My husband and I shared the pick 3 BBQ dinner and was good. Service was slow but once our waitress got to us she did a very nice job and apologized was our wait over and over.

Restaurant is decorated with many stuffed animals done in a artistic setting. Great family dining at a very reasonable price and great pizza.

The atmosphere is mounted animal heads and lots of wood. We had the chicken Parmesan and salads. Service was quick and food was good.

They have lots of stuffed animals on the walls, but they need to be dusted/vacuumed off as they are hanging partially over the tables and have a lot of dust/dirt on them. It's kind of gross to see when you're eating.
