Nice Hot Biscuits-VERY TASTY!

Enjoy the food at this downtown Restaurant-Good Food Good Service and brew. What more could you want. Had seconds on the warm and flavorful biscuits. The BBQ was pretty damn good also. One caution-this are of Batavia is not very savory as it has some minor crime! But well-worth the visit!

We have eaten at this restaurant several times. Have always had good service. The prices are reasonable. It has a nice atmosphere. There are two floors for dining. I would say the food is more of a "down home country" style. Have never left empty or disappointed.

We were turned away from Alex's place for no reservation and it was the best denial ever. We came here and the ambiance is perfect. Staff was friendly. Service was perfect. And the food was fabulous. Then after dinner they had free live entertainment in the square adjacent to the restaurant. What a perfect evening.

The food was OK. The floor was sticky. The menus and check portfolio were filthy. I brought these issues to the attention of the manager. The manager had no response.

The service tonight was absolutely horrid. The waiter joked about how he takes forever and he held true to that. He cane out once and said "Oh you need biscuits". 25 minutes kater he comes back with our food and says "where are your biscuits?". That my good sir is a good question. We had finished our drinks before the... More

Nice looking place. But every time the place has many empty seats. Hostess is trained to say 20 -30 minute wait. Obviously trying to get you to buy alcohol. So if you come plan on no quick trip. It will be a wait

The good; Upon entering the aroma of bbq is fantastic and the atmosphere is nostalgic and very cool. Our waitress "Ryan" was very friendly, upbeat and attentive to our group of eleven and she was kind enough to even split our bill. The bad; Our table was so warped you had to set your drink down three times to find... More

This is the second time we have tried this restaurant as we were traveling in the area and my husband and son both like good BBQ. The food is average. There are a lot of items on the menu that you wouldn't find anywhere else, like tomato salad and deviled eggs, but the flavor of the food is just ok.... More

I have never had WORSE SERVICE in my life. I had a reservation and it took ten minutes from walking in the door to get the table because they didn't have it ready. After twenty minutes at the table we only had two drinks for seven people. Multiple tables got sat after us and left before us. It took and... More
