We have patronized this small town rib joint from their beginning and through all their hardships. The quality of the food remained the same until recently and it definitely has undergone some changes!

This place is on the top of places to eat in Monticello. Good food, good food, and great employees. Burgers are excellent, the Hell Burger is not for the light hearted. It was so delicious and the German Chocolate cake was to die for. Great place

Went two times this summer, once for ribs and once for brisket. The ribs were cold, tough, and had no flavor. The brisket was cut way too thick for my liking. Nice looking place, but have to say that I have had much better.

It was my son's 21st birthday...he choose Sublette's because it's one of his favorites, but for me it was my first time and I have to say that overall it was very good. We made reservations for our party of 6, but it wasn't a busy night so there was no problem getting in. The hostess was friendly and helpful.... More

Before this restaurant had their fire, it was a great place to eat...good food, cooked properly and excellent waitresses. Since they rebuilt and reopened, it has been very subpar. Food is not as good, not cooked to the previous standards and the service is way below what we used to expect. We have gone there a couple of times since... More

Terrible experience at Sublette's. 15 minute wait for drinks, 45 minute wait for food, 15 minute wait for our checks. When addressing our miserable trip with the owner nothing was corrected or addressed. She made me realize the problems start from the top, and work their way down. Will not be returning. Not worth the time or money.

Food was very good. Family place. Wait staff was pleasant and atmosphere was comfortable. I thought it was clean and will definitely come back next time we go to Lake Shafer.

When this place first opened everything was fabulous. The ribs, a feature were the best. My last dining experience, the ribs were horrid, undercooked, tough. Sent them back and ordered whole catfish...not what I wanted. Disappointing to have to settle for something else, then charged the FULL amount even after finding a hair in the cole slaw...really?? The service here... More
