Our favorite place to go after a day of fishing or boating. Kids love the big burgers and we love the fish tacos and cold beer. Caution when going at night, bands play and smoking is allowed.

Place wasn't crowded, but we waited a long time for service. Everything we read said this is where the locals go, I ordered a club sandwhich- the bacon was almost raw. I also got some kind of blisters in my mouth after eating here-someone did not wash their hands!

This is a bar and grill , I think the menu fits well with that atmosphere. My parents usually have the chicken fried steak which is prepared very nicely. I have the seafood tacos with blackbeans on the side which is very delicious. Our waitress Diane, was so great. We never went without anything and never had to wait. She's... More

In looking for a place to eat we stopped here. It's 2 floors; the upper section is a bar; a large, outdoor porch (covered) with 2 TVs that looks directly onto the bay. There is a long flight of stairs to get to the top. When we entered the front door downstairs, the cigarette smell was so rank, we almost... More

We visited twice while in town. The hot wings are good the GUMBO WAS THE WORST I'VE ever had. The ranch is homemade and delicious, the Patty Melt with the Mustard blend was delicious. Ice cold beer and a great place to watch the games. I would go back again but I would avoid that gumbo like the plague!!!

We went there for dinner and ordered soup and u peel shrimp. Waitress came back and said no soup left. Did not have menu with her so we went with the shrimp. Man at next table was smoking a cigar the entire time and the smoke was overwhelming. The shrimp was so salty I couldn't eat it. When she brought... More

I really love the fried pickles here and there Steak & Cheese sandwich is very good. Love the seasoned fries and they are the only ones in town that know exactly how I like my Margarita fixed (Straight Up - not frozen and no ice, just chilled). I can't seem to get it anywhere else in town like that and... More

I've been here several times now and I have not had anything but really good food. Their hamburgers are really fresh, their seasoned fries are crisp and we had to order more onion rings because they were so good. I also tried the chicken fried steak special one day and it was very good and was paired with the standard... More

We went here for a large family gathering the night before a family member's wedding. Even with our very large group, the service was very good. The food was good, but nothing special. I had the bacon Swiss burger and my husband had the blue chicken sandwich. My biggest complaint is that it was miserably hot in the restaurant. Not... More

We drove through Rockport to do a little scouting for lodging for our next weekend trip, and stopped in here to grab some lunch. The food was pretty good. Nothing special, but good. The staff was very friendly & attentive. During the day, it was very family friendly (I'm not sure about night since it's possibly more of a bar... More
