A family visit after a trip to the Oregon coast. We arrived around 5:30 PM and were seated immediately. The service was good and fast. The food was amazingly good and we all left with that full feeling. Definitely recommend this restaurant for families.

This is one of the popular eateries in the South Salem area, easy access, parking, always have experienced good to great service, a varied menu, reasonably priced, 'Killer' dinner rolls, ample salads served without 'watered down' dressings. Sound level can sometimes be a little obvious but has never interfered. Lunch time is BUZY, the earlier the better!

First time there. We arrived about 4:30 and they seated us in the lounge. We ordered s beverage and then it happened. The bartender behind the bar had the loudest voice and laugh...the whole time. We should have left, but instead we ordered. A quick burger snd ate, paid and left. We both felt sick we ate so fast. Not... More

I had the chicken and ribs which we're delicious even had enough to bring home. My wife had a Turkey club and it had so much Turkey she had to take some off to open her mouth to eat it!

We really enjoyed our food. The service was a little slow. After we ate we had so much fun playing the mini golf course.

Our friends, former in laws, decided we needed to try the best BBQ ribs in the state. We went to this wonderful restaurant and devoured the best baby back ribs and the most fall off the bone taste. What a treat! I would highly recommend taking Texans, okies, Missourian or any kind of "they think they have the best BBQ... More

This place beats out the roadhouse by far. Way better food and service. Had dinner tonight with my family. Kid friendly. Good children's menu. They offer on children's menu grilled cheese, little burgers, Mac and cheese, corn dogs, bbq ribs and more. With a side and drink. Good steaks and yummy mashed potatoes. Food was hot when it came out.... More

I've been here twice. Once with a friend and once on a double date. The food was good - but it wasn't anything special. The place was busy on a Friday night. They have mini golf available for purchase and you get $.50 off per person on mini golf if you show your receipt for eating there.
