Date Night

Tasty drinks on the deck with consistent food, and large portions. I love the rhino fries. If they are too big, order a "baby rhino" not on the menu.

We should have known that after waiting 3 minutes at the door before being greeted and seated that the service was poor. The place wasn't crowded at all since it was a Sunday night. For some reason with nearly the entire deck open we were seated right by the bright lights and noise of the kitchen. We requested to be... More

Kathy was behind the bar too and what a FABULOUS personality! She made us feel like we've been coming there for years! After... More

We arrived for an early dinner w/ friends. We sat at the bar. Kathy and Mark were our bartenders. Kathy was great helping us with our phones and so friendly. This was Mark's first day and I think he will be good. The Margaritas were delicious. My husband had a crab cake sandwich and he said it was good (but... More

We dine here whenever in Elizabethtown. Its soups, drinks, sandwiches, hamburgers, and desserts are all outstanding Service is very friendly. Go early or late to avoid huge crowds. Place is in desperate need of more restroom facilities. Go before you go!

This place gets packed often, and it has more to do with the location and the huge outdoor deck than the quality of the food. Don't get me wrong, the food isn't bad by any means, it's just not that special. I actually don't care much for their huge deck. For one, it bounces when you walk on it, so... More

a group of 9 stopped in on a Saturday at 300 pm we were seated promptly. Drink orders taken, and arrived as food orders were placed. Not a long wait, food arrived at the same time. I got a taco salad, very good, size also good fit the price, and split a lobster taco with 2 others. Also good. Had... More

I begin by saying I know this place well as I live about a half mile from the restaurant. This is a popular place although my husband and I have NEVER figured out why. We have eaten here a number of times over the years always hoping that things will improve. Again tonight we had a gift certificate that we... More
