Of a couple of dozen of ribs places visited, this ranks in the middle. Sirloin steaks are mostly palatable. Time to table was slow, though there not that many patrons occupying tables. Time for food to arrive was even slower. The waiter was most attentive...More

Hands down the service was awesome! The steak was delicious! You can't go wrong with the turtle cheesecake! It was a great dinner and they have a store to purchase tee shirts with their unique name!

Stopped on the bikes after riding all day. Cold beer, unique mixed drinks. I had a Screwy Beaver...vodka, mango rum, orange juice and grenadine. Yum. The brisket burger was awesome. And the hushpuppies were perfect...sweet cornbread mix, corn and jalapenos, fried crisp.

We had a few beers and lunch here. I had no idea the Shiner's were 4.00 each until we got the tab. Also, the lunch prices seem higher than before. BUT the food was very good and we had great service.

The food was wonderful and the servers added a lot of fun. This was right down the road from where we were staying at The Green Tree Lodge.
