Good food, but enormous portions

It's not a place to get a small, light meal. The food was good - everyone in our party agreed to that - but the portions were just too large, and since we were all attending a conference at a local hotel that was a problem. Otherwise, very informal and cheap for what you get. What I... read more

Had a business dinner here. The salmon was very good. Service was quick and friendly. This is a very casual place, but easy to talk and hear each other.

Arrived around 8:00 PM - Hungry and just wanting some good food. We were seated right away in a nice section. The place has a great Atmosphere with something to look at everywhere. I ordered the RibEye 8OZ and it was done very nice. The spices were great - not overly salty. I had the Baked Potato (Loaded of Course)... More

Stopped here after arriving at SeaTac airport. Easy to get too from expressway. Food was very good and service friendly and prompt. Portions are large, so go hungry. Armadillo Amber beer on tap also hit the spot after a long flight. Picked this place based on tripadvisor reviews, and wasn't disappointed.

Even though we were one of the last folks in the restaurant the waitress was very friendly and was not rushing us out of the door. We ate a chicken ceasar salad and it was off the chain. I think it was one of the best salads I have eaten. This is definitely a couples atmosphere also.

good food, great service, generous portions. Like Texas Roadhouse but much more primitive without being trendy. Our server was extremely friendly and competent. This is the kind of place where you can be yourself.

The food was good, the atmosphere a little redneck, which we like, the drinks cold, and the service good too. We had a little trouble with our hotel and the waitress was great in giving some advice and guidance. We would go again if we are ever in the area.

We stopped in for lunch around 11:30 on a Saturday and found it relatively empty...fun to eat peanuts while deciding on lunch...and the rolls with honey butter - YUM! They have awesome crab cakes and hubby enjoyed his fish and chips. Little pricey for lunch - it's the same menu they use for dinner. Great service. You absolutely must have... More

If you want a place to go with consistently good food (not great) and good service, then this is your place. Just make sure that you go at slightly off times (like 4:45-5 pm) to ensure you don't have to wait for an hour. Love the "throw your peanut shells on the floor" atmosphere! Kid messes are never seen here!!!... More
