“Good Food Downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Sports Bar downtown Columbus recently noted to have the best steaks in town. I always go with my family and they really like the burgers....salads are pretty good for lunch. If you are looking for a family atmosphere to watch the game, they have TV's upstairs and good food.
Admittedly, I haven't tried the steaks but I have heard from friends they are quite good. Service there is good with occasional lapses. It's worth a try if you have not been there.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

We sat at the bar for drinks and dinner. One of the owner's (Bubba Huckleberry) chatted with us for at least 20 minutes. Great guy, great story. After Bubba got back to work, a stranger (Bert, whose sister-in-law was the bartender) at the bar struck up a conversation with us for over an hour and bought us a drink. We talked about cycling, running, kayaling, and Columbus, MS. The conversation was as good as the food, which was fantastic (grilled catfish and grilled grouper).

We expect to return during another big road trip next year to return the favor to the stranger who bought our drink.

We spent 2 1/2 hours hours savoring the food, drink and conversations. Love the deep south!! (We are from Denver.)

“Surpisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

We had the shrimp and grits and redfish Pontchartrain. I use shrimp and grits to measure a restaurant by and these guys did a great job. Lots of big shrimp, sausage, and a great sauce. The grits were real and there were enough to balance the spicy sauce but not so much that you feel like they are just selling you cheap filler. The redfish was also reported to be good by my coworker ate it all before giving me a taste. Dinner salads were good too.

There was live music by two acoustic guitars at a nice volume. Atmosphere was casual and busy. Prices were low for the quality of the food.
