This was our first stop after we unpacked at our honeymoon cabin! It was rainy and flooding, so we were 2 of about 10 people in the whole place. We ended up just ordering fried mushrooms and wings and they were SOOOOO GOOD! Now everytime we go somewhere and order the same thing, this place is what we compare it... More

We sat on the porch during a nice Friday evening. We asked the waitress for a recommendation. She offered that the barbeque and wings were good. We took her advice and were pleased with the barbeque. They also have pizza, but it is Hunt Bros, not custom made in the kitchen (menu insert for that). It was karaoke night when... More

We were here about 7:30 on a Thursday night. Only one other table seated. We ordered a Chicken salad, nothing on it hardly, a bowl of chili and a grilled chicken sandwich with fries. The salad was skimpy, the chicken breast burnt on one side and the chili tasted like it had cooked for days on a steam table then... More

I have been here before and had great food and service. The service is good but food wasn't up to Parr. I had wings that were under cooked and kids had what seemed like frozen patties for burger and tenders. Good southern tea and good waitress but I miss the great wings you used to have. I hope you turn... More

Should have know better when on Thursday night at 6 PM a place of this size only had one other table of diners. Salad bar had not been refreshed since before lunch and may have not been refrigerated since everything was limp. This is unacceptable when a small dinner salad carries a charge of 4.95 ea. Dinner was only overpriced... More

Service is slow and so so friendly upstairs, but give the downstairs bar a try . You won't be disappointed!

We saw the sign that said Pizza, Steak, Seafood. We should have noted that this was a busy weekend and the place was nearly empty. This was just not well prepared bar food. If you want to play a game of pool, I would say perfect. if you want to eat some decent food...go somewhere else. Even the fries sucked.... More

Our family ordered the Oriental Salad, The Irish Bangers and the Baby Back Ribs.... horrindus... absolutely terrible!!!! The ranch and honey mustard was nasty and the salad was FAR from fresh. The Irish Bangers was basically breakfast sausage when waitress assured us that they were bratwurst... last not but least the Baby Back Ribs were dried and nothing but bones,... More

We went here when we first got to lake lure because it was located on the river and had a great outside seating area. We enjoyed watching the geese around the river. We sat at the bar and ordered chicken tenders and fries. The chicken came out, but not the fries. The bartender was great-she said she'd get us some... More
