5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Gigantic pork tenderloin that's amazing. Wood tables, nice bar food. You can bring your kids and be fine. Just a really great atmosphere.

“Good Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had dinner with the family. Sat in the Beer Garden. Great family atmosphere had drinks and onion rings while waiting for dinner. Had the 1/2 chicken with fries, my wife had the fish sandwich that she calls the best ever.My son had the tenderloin supreme, his date also had the fish sandwich and agreed the best ever. My daughter had the chicken strips with a bowl of chili. The waitress messed up on my order she apologized and was so nice it didn't really matter to us. She gave us a free order of hush puppy's. In all we enjoyed our time there and highly recommend anyone to visit.

“Best Wings Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

If you ever have a craving for wings, this is a place to go. Perfect with a cold brew and some crispy, light onion rings. The staff is great and attentive. Great place to relax with no pretenses.

“Gigantic Tenderloin!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

My son, grandson and I each ordered a Classic Tenderloin ala-carte.

Each tenderloin was (12") in diameter - - the pork ranged from 1/8" to 1/4" thick and extended to the outside circumference of the breading. The breading had a slightly sweet flavor which added to the flavor.

Each tenderloin would easily provide four sandwiches if served on a standard-sized hamburger bun.

The tenderloin is $11.25 and I ordered a side of thick-cut french fries which were very good ($2.25).

Each of us ended up taking 3/4 of our tenderloin home - - was very good the following day.

Our server was very friendly and attentive with refills.

“Great bar food but family friendly...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

The tenderloins are huge! 2 people can easily share. Fast, friendly service. Their burgers are my favorite! It's a bar but family friendly. I especially love sitting outside on the patio in nice weather.
