This place is our escape. It's quaint and pleasant with conversation. The Cowboy Burger and Buffalo Shrimp are INCREDIBLE. The owners/staff work hard at accommodating their guests. Always hustling and making it happen.

Roasted red pepper smoked gouda soup awesome. Prime rib asparagus and potatoes excellent. Noel the bartender great company. I will definitely return.

My wife and I had been here before a few years ago and enjoyed it at that time. We came back and had the Reuben and Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. They were very good and the service was slightly above average as it was busy and only 1 waitress. I would recommend it.

Our family, including kids, went to Cowboys for lunch. The food was good- but average bar food fare. The family enjoyed the meal and the the location. The adults have stopped in for a beer a few times. Nice atmosphere with a mix of locals and vacationers.

Of a party of two, one had a fine brisket sandwich, the other a greasy tasteless burger. Seasoning needs help. The one waiter did a fine job but had too many tables and orders. No sign of management. The ventilation was poor and after leaving we had to drive with windows open as our clothes absorbed the cooking odors. Washed... More

Looks like your normal bar/pub. But we decided to try their breakfast and it was really good! I had a prime rib hash (limited availability, but they also have corned beef hash). There was a LOT of food. The only downside is that service was a little slow (but extremely polite). We were the second couple to arrive after they... More

My two friends and I had my first breakfast at Cowboys.... My biscuits and gravy was delicious ! The cubed, seasoned potatoes were great too! Service very good also. I cleaned my plate! Cheers! Kim

Food is good here but is pricy. They have indoor and outdoor seating. If it's nice out I like to sit outside. Burgers and sandwiches are great. They have a bar area with seating and a dining room/pool room. They have TV's to watch different sports shows, it's okay but lacks atmosphere.

We eat here quite often, and many times out on their outdoor patio which is fun. They have very good burgers, a wonderful fish sandwich, good fries, surprisingly good soup and most importantly a nice selection of good, cold tap beers. This place falls into the "dive" category and is always a fun spot to dine.

This is a smaller place with great food. We were greeted up the steps to the deck. there is dining space inside and out on the deck. You will find anything from Appetizers (try the Fish fingers) they also have Salads, great burgers, sandwiches and Meat and Potato Dinners. Friday and Saturday Prime Ribs is being served. Breakfast is also... More
