Went there on 07/17/14, and so glad we did. Great little place with a lot of character. Margaritas, salad bar and ribs were outstanding. We will definitely be back, as the ribs were as great as any we have ever had. The wait staff was very friendly and the prices are very affordable. Glad we made the car ride over... More

I was not expecting very much when I went here for dinner and was very surprised. The service was good and the food was very good. I look forward to going back. Sometimes you get more than what you were expecting.

Can't speak for the rest of the menu but the ribs were great. Very meaty vs mostly bone. Ask for sauce on the side. The ribs are so good - almost falling off the bone, you really don't need much sauce. The margaritas served in mason jars so a very good value. Got adventurous and went for a coconut margarita...

We all enjoyed our dinner here. My husband enjoyed the hot beef sandwich loaded with pot roast. I had the 8 oz. sirloin steak that was grilled exactly as I requested and was flavorful and tender. The baked potato was hot and well baked. The waitress was friendly and kept our beverages filled without us having to ask. The rhubarb... More

First time visit since they moved. An upgrade in facility. Fish fry was very good with good happy hour drinks. Wish patio was covered or umbrellas for tables. We enjoy eating outside.

We live close to Nate's and try to go there at least twice a month. This month we found a groupon and what a deal, $30.00 for two meals, What a deal. Melissa was our server. She was outstanding.
