We've been coming to The County Line every year for the past few years. We LOVE the food and especially the view out back. This time, we brought with us a group of friends and they all loved it as well. You MUST buy the bread!! Not the one they give for free, but the one you have to order!... More

At first I thought it would be expensive based on the location. The prices were all reasonable, and the food was fantastic! Try the BBQ baked potato, it was huge bursting with meat! The all you can eat meat selections were big enough for a king, and it satisfied 3 adults! I suggest eating outside or on the deck, that... More

The ribs had a good sauce on it but were very tough. Not the fall off the bone tenderness that I was expecting. The waiter provided the minimum amount of attention, but was not annoyed that I asked questions like some young people are. The potato salad and Cole slaw was tasty and the bread was good and hot.

We dined their on a Thursday night after 8pm. Great ambiance, loved the turtles. The server was overburdened with tables and unable to be attentive. We had ribs. They were dry, overcooked and should not have been served. Plenty of other dining experiences. Skip this one.

Came here late in the afternoon to avoid the dinner crowd - so no wait. This was my 2nd visit and I asked for a table with a view. Our table over looked the creek and patio with huge shade trees. The interior has a rustic cabin feel with all sorts of antiques on the wall. We had great service... More

Long wait, which is no problem if the food is awesome. We sat down in a large group. Johnny was our waiter he seemed busy, brought out brown bread and tossed it on the table with plates. Our friends asked what's his problem. Food was ok, service was terrible. For a long wait we all expected more out of our... More

The food was pretty good. Nothing exceptional though. The bread was quite good. Service was friendly and sitting by the water was nice. But I don't see myself returning.

Not fancy, but very friendly and the beef ribs and sides are delicious. The other beef dishes are also very good.
