Went to this sports bar restaurant for steak and the use of multiple TV sets tunes to the nights match. Typical steak restaurant menu with a good selection of mainly spicy foods. Service was good but not special. Food was very plentiful, in fact far to much for any human to eat in one go. The volume was quite of... More

The food was good and service was good and I liked the location. I wasn't impressed with their soups, but otherwise, everything else was good.

Had lunch here last week and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. We ate on the restaurant side with a nice view of the golf course. The staff was pleasant and efficient, offering menu advice. Our sandwiches, a beef brisket and a hamburger, were both excellent. Would highly recommend for a nice bite to eat.

Food was not hot, and was bland. I was tempted to not even eat it but I was tired and it was late. Waiter was nice, though.

We REALLY enjoyed this restaurant! We chose to sit outside on the patio to eat. It was a bit cooler outside, but was still a comfortable temperature to enjoy the al fresco dining experience. Our server, Pedro, was very polite and made great recommendations. I ordered a pulled pork salad which was amazing! My husband order a plate that had... More

This restaurant is off site and you take the shuttle to get there - a few minutes. It claims world class BBQ but not in my book. I found it pretty average. Don't hesitate to try it as its a decent meal and a nice setting.

We ordered two plates of nachos, two pitchers of margaritas, a side order of extra chips & salsa plus a tiny plate of roasted jalapeños & the... More

I had lunch and dinner here and took a friend from Texas that knows and loves BBQ. He gave this place a 10 out of 10 and that is what I did as well. The BBQ is fantastic and smoked just right. All of the sauces that we tried were very good and they have some killer side dishes such... More
