Traveled here with a group of friends on a Sunday motorcycle ride. Nice peaceful setting with plenty of outdoor and indoor seating. The food was great, as was the service!

Went there for the first time saturday night. Ordered chicken. Waitress said would take 20 minutes. Everybody in our party received their food n i got told the waitress gave mine to another party by accident. DUH! Dont u have a pos system?? They tell...u where the food goes. Come on, really??!! Boom..another 20 minutes. And dont even get me started on the water issue...seriously. Had to keep asking for drinks n silverware (which was plastic..ugh). Luved the coleslaw n by the time i got my chicken, it was actually really good. Probably order to go next time tho. Was not impressed. Very small place n only a few tsbles inside. We didnt sit outside cuz it was way too hot. Nature scenery was beautiful tho. Waitress did comp my meal tho n apologized profusely.More

We were looking for a place to eat out not far from home. We happened upon the Gunsmoke Grill on a Friday night a few weeks back. I was looking for a good piece of fish, my husband wanted pulled pork, we were both very...well pleased and satisfied with our choice of food. An added bonus was the delicious homemade cole slaw, very unique in the taste and ingrediants.More

Great food, great tacos, great beers but waiting for local brewery beers to come back on draft. Families should look on website for hours of dining and go here to ride horses then eat. Also go out for there “Fright Fest” before Halloween which we’ve...been to many times and they do a real good job at it for Halloween. Heard rumors of possibly making kitchen bigger in summer of 2019 which only will make this place so much better with more food choices. Love going here regularly and the staff is wonderful.More

We were in the middle of nowhere on the highway looking for a place to eat. My wife says I found something you like take a right. Well you have to love GPS because the middle of nowhere at the end of a long dirt...road ending in a little petting zoo/horse stables there was a wonderful Restaurant. Now you may know that I like BBQ and I try it anywhere they say they're good at it. Today on a Sunday night I was coming to test them. The place was cute good for family good for friends. Like a little cabin in the middle of the woods. I was pleasantly surprised the service was very good people were extremely friendly the barbecue was good the sauce was excellent and the reason to come back some darn good coleslaw. If you're going to worry about getting dust on your shoes... dont go if you like my description at all, you definitely should. I'll be back thank you for the hospitality. By the way I've read some reviews where people said folks didn't like bikers here. There were plenty of bikers there and those folks had a good time just like everyone else.More

It was a fun drive out to Cedar Creek Ranch. The bar and grill sits up on a hill and the deck looks down over the creek and surrounding property. We went on taco night - $1 tacos. We were told that they were really...busy and our order would take awhile. I did not understand this as I make tacos - put meet in the shell or tortilla, put on toppings and you have a taco! Three of us had tacos - they were good but not great. One of us had a pulled pork sandwich - again it was okay. I did not feel a warm vibe. I think they cater to the locals. One redeeming thing about our visit - beautiful pictures of the sunset!More

Stopped in to hear music and have a beer. Owner was rude to us as soon as we started to put the kickstand down. Said they had a "big rehearsal dinner coming in," so no parking to us where we were. Ok, we complied but...we're confused; no signage to say where you should or shouldn't park. Another Harley in same spot so we assumed it was ok. Our bad. We won't be back. I spoke to the owner before writing a review to tell him we were taken aback and a bit offended. He definitely had an axe to grind about Harley riders. Sad, because Harley riders can bring the crowds, especially on poker runs. Stear clear of this hog pen Fellow Harley rider.More

Liked the outdoors, horse farm, some games you can play. Unique spot. Otherwise nothing special, service lacking, not very accomodating.

This place is great. Whenever I am in the mood for a burger this is my first choice. Homemade fries are awesome. Great atmosphere and very laid back. Cold beer too.
