“Peanuts on the floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Great meat. Love the peanuts and the crunch of the shells under foot. Very hard restaurant for a vegetarian. How many steamed veggies can you eat and still feel special? All in all a fun friends and family kind of place. Honky tonk flavor in Renton. Boots and belt buckles welcome.

“Not as good as I remember”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Met a few friends here for a party. We were shown our table right away and the waitresses didn't bother us while we were talking but they were very good once they did serve us. Most of the burgers/sandwiches are served on a hub cab. Nice amount of food.

Rolls and drinks were refilled as we finished them. The rolls though weren't as good as I remember them. Not sure if they throw the peanuts on the floor or not either.

All in all it was a good time

“Go for the Chowder”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

The best part of my experience at this restaurant was the chowder. It is the best I have had. The rest of the meal went down hill from here. The blackened ribeye had absolutely no flavor and very little marbling. The pulled pork was very sweet and did not have much smoke flavor. This restaurant looks to try to mimic the Texas Roadhouse chain but falls way short of this goal. Service was hit and miss also.

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

I do not come here frequently but, the times i have been here have been great.When you walk in the door you will see a basket with peanuts in it, make sure you grab a handful. My son loves this place because after you eat the peanuts,just toss them on the floor. The service and the food was delicious. Will visit again

“Yummy and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We love this restaurant - my daughter and I almost always get a Katy's Filet steak and my husband likes to try new things like the pulled pork sandwich. The food is very good, the rolls with honey butter are excellent and we take the extras home every time plus munching on the peanuts and throwing the shells on the floor while waiting for food is just plain fun.
