It's not a huge place. It's out in the middle of the farmland. But the place was packed on a Friday night. Service was excellent. My wife and I had the fried chicken and it was tasty. Our friends enjoyed the steak and raved about it. All in all an enjoyable evening.

The place smelled of mildew and the ceiling tiles were falling down. The food was mediocre at best. For what they charged for the food and drinks, I could have made everything cheaper.

Every Monday they have the best smoked one half chicken for $9.50 with two sides good food my only problem is not being told up front that they was going to charge me $2 for an extra plate so my wife and me could share the meal. I brought 11 other people with me and I will not return and... More

The food was excellent. The service was very good. On the wrong night you will wait a long time for a table and without a real waiting area it gets sort of awkward watching everyone eat. This restaurant is a local favorite and it seems like everyone knows everyone there.

This made our 2nd year of having dinner at the Hornville Tavern on NYE. Both times we made rsvp in advance and were seated shortly after arriving. Our waitress was polite and took good care of us. Appetizers and salads came to us fairly quickly. Did a have a little bit of a wait for our entrees but we were... More

Went the day before thanksgiving for dinner and music. We had a great time. The smoked chicken special was great, I recommend and the price is fair. Several people got salads and chili, which was not as good. The music in the back was good. Fun night out with friends.

Step back in time at this former stagecoach stop, dance hall, and setting for the movie "A League of Their Own". The smoked chicken and German potato salad are to die for. Fried chicken is just so so but don't leave without trying the beer bread with your meal. Very unusual but excellent flavor.

Very good food. The smoked chicken on Wednesday is the best around. Server can be rude, and sometimes if you are not a regular, the service is very poor. If you are a regular, they treat you great, if not, your service is going to suck!!!

This was our first time here. We came on a Saturday night at 5. We were the only ones in the family room and sat there almost 10 minutes before anyone noticed us. The waitress took our drink order and went away. Did not ask if we wanted apps. She brought our drinks and then went away and we kept... More

Very good out of the way place. We were in from out of town and always eat at a trip advisor recommended restaurant. Well worth the drive.
