“a folksy dive with great steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

A tourist driving through the area in a mood for steak, I stumble upon this place. You will have to manage you expectation. The place is somewhat of a dive right on the main road in town. The aroma from the grilling was enough to get me into the door. Don't expect Outback decor or Hooter's wait staff. Do expect great, unpretentious steak, friendly staff and family feel to the place.

“This is a local place. If you don't go with high expectations it's ok.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Maybe we went on a bad night but the chimney for their fire pit was not drawing smoke so the whole restaurant was filled with smoke. The service was good and fast. We got ribeye steaks. Good flavor but not a lot of meat there-lots of fat. We may give it another try if I drive by and see smoke coming OUT the pit.

“Steak great, all the rest ... not so much.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2009

This is a sort of folksy, casual dining spot. Have to say the actual steak was very good (as good as Ruth's). Salad, sides, everything else was C-. Probably would not go back.
