This place is extremely expensive for what it is. The drink prices are outrageous if they aren't on special too. Been there a few times to meet some friends. Not my first choice.

Read the previous reviews and was not sure but tried it anyway. The service was good including what I assume was the manger checking on us. The food came in good time. The Reuben was very good as we're the burgers. The fish was a good size. I had the pulled pork which had a few decent size pieces of... More

Sub par across the board, opt for fast food over this one..The house specialty Mac & Cheese uses canned imitation Crab meat.. Enough said!

When this place first opened the food was decent. Now it's either burnt, dry, or tastes old. The service (staff) is terrible as well. My mother and I went here the other day and we were hungry. First, the lunch menu is bleak. Secondly, the food was inedible. I advised our waitress how bad the food was (and by the... More

This restaurant is terribly disappointing. The meat is always prepared wrong--hamburgers are dry, the brisket is covered in fat, and the steaks are a cheap cut. The one highlight are the homemade potato chips with their special sauce. The Sheetz Corporation will be tearing down both McCoy's Inn and Johnny Macs restaurant. From the rumors around town, I guess Johnny... More

We had our company Christmas Dinner there in Dec 2012. It was horrible. The food was the worst that I have ever had in a restaurant. The service was horrible.

If it's not smothered in BBQ sauce or fried, don't get it. Well, maybe the burgers but again, only if they are smothered in something. Trying to be healthy, I had the grilled chicken breast with green beans. The chicken was so dry it was nearly sawdust. Green beans from a can. UGH. No wonder there were only 8 people... More

I have to say, this place has the friendliest bartenders and wait staff. They made our visit there very enjoyable. We love going to new places and hving a friendly conversation with at the bar with the local bartender. They treat you like they really want your business and enjoy talking to you, as well as informing us of other... More

Not bad at all, would definitely go there again if I ever come back to Ripley, the service was good, but I can see some people having problems with $12 for burgers and fries and a drink. But I will say that it was a good 1/2 lb burger with Cheddar cheese and pulled pork and brisket so I'm not... More
