We went last night and made the mistake of going on the late side. The food was good and well priced. We ordered the Fried Mushrooms as an appetizer. The batter was light and crispy and the mushrooms very flavorful. Not the typical over-battered frozen stuff. It came with a great garlic dipping sauce. Even though it was an appetizer for one, it was more than enough to share between the three of us. My husband and I ordered the crab legs. He got salad and onion rings with his and I got a loaded baked potatoe and corn on the cob with mine. His salad was crisp and well presented. There was a slight mix up with his onion rings so they arrived after we started eating, but it only took them a few minutes to get them to him. Again, the batter was light and crunchy and he liked that they were hand made. The only downfall was that three of the onion rings were actually entire onion slices like someone forgot to separate the rings before battering and frying them. My loaded baked potato was very good, but my corn on the cob was more than a little dried out. The crab legs were really good. We were a little nervous at first because they are served wrapped in aluminum foil, but the reason soon became clear. They use a peppery spice on their crab legs and use the aluminum foil to steam the flavor inside. The spice was just enough to add interesting flavor without being so hot that I could not eat it. Our daughter ordered the chicken tender basket which came with fries and Texas toast. When it came out, the fries were actually chive fries. It was good, but not expected since the menu did not point that out. Our server was nice, but a little hard to find at times. There were several times where she walked right by our table as I was trying to get her attention. I finally had to get up and stand right in her path.
Now the reason to go early. As I mentioned, we made the mistake of going on the late side of dinner. Expect a lot of noise. While we were there, the band was setting up and warming up. To be blunt, this nice restaurant transforms into a meat market/bar scene. I was more than a little shocked at the camel toe and cellulite show coming in the door. One woman's dress didn't even cover her lady parts (yet they let her in) and I began to wonder if they were having a street walker's convention. If you are dining with your family, go early or don't go at all.
