We were with friends going to have We went to this restaurant for dinner. We were met with a very rude, sharp and condescending woman. There was a table in the bar area (with appropriate social distancing) but she said we couldn’t sit there as...they were having a poker tournament (with a whole 8 people playing) without masks. She ‘told’ us to go outside for patio seating but never checked to see if there was any room out there, but there wasn’t. Now back in the bar I asked her if we could sit in another area and she said no that there was not enough staffing but we saw others sitting in there and she said they were employees. So which one is it? Then there was two people sitting at a table for four who looked like they were leaving I asked her what about that table and she said really rudely ‘I Don’t Know’. She never asked if we wanted to sit and wait a few minutes, NOTHING! We can’t speak to the food since she didn’t give us a chance to eat before she got us to leave, which seemed her intention from the very beginning. With COVID and all that goes with that I would think the owner would welcome local and visiting friends who were willing to support the restaurant. Now we don’t care about the food since we will never step foot in there again nor will our friends who are locals.More

We had lunch while in town on vacation. Fairly large sports bar with a mix of tables, bar space and booths. Understaffed while we were there, but it was lunch on a weekday. The waitress was very friendly. Chicken quesadilla was fair. My wife had...an unusual burger called the stupid delicious burger, which had a fried chicken thigh on it, and she absolutely loved it. We would go again if in town.More

Love this place! Great to have so close. Best restaurant in Lillington for sure. Get the prime rib on the weekends. Husband loves the mahi sandwich with the special sauce. Wings are good. Nothing bad to say

Great experience here. Met a group of friends and shared some appetizers. Beer, wings, pork rinds, and cheese sticks. Everything was good. The service was fast ad friendly, and you can tell this is a popular spot for the locals. Would come back if the...opportunity arises.More

I've been here a few times. They have a very good salad bar now and almost everything on the menu that I've tried has been delicious. The pub sirloin was very good the first time I had it but tonight it was kind of chewy....The homemade potato chips are fantastic, the wings are very good and the employees are friendly. I would definitely recommend this place, overall.More

We had a very quick meal here before a wrestling tournament and were pleasantly surprised. Good, juicy burger cooked to a nice medium rare, crispy wings done well and a decent salad bar. Service was very good and we got in and out in our...desired time. I also liked the way the menu was set up on a clipboard. Solid experience with expectations more than met. If we lived here, this would be a regular stop.More

We hadn’t been here in a few years but friends invited us to celebrate a birthday lunch there. Then food was eh. Now food was excellent. Then it was overpriced, now it’s about average. Then service was slow, now it is quick and accurate. This...place is located in downtown Lillington, not next to a hotel. Casual and friendly dining and the people are very accommodating. We have put this in our Sunday rotation list. BTW the Raven Burger was amazing.More

The food for the most part is good. The burger was loaded down with grease. The salad bar had some wilted greens and the plates were dirty. the staff seemed confused at times.

Nice restaurant with a very nice salad bar. Menu also has a variety of items. Had a salad with Buffalo Chicken tenders that was very tasty. Plates passing by looked very good. Service was ok.

The good: The inside of the restaurant is decorated well with lots of hardwood and very high ceilings. The tables and booths are spaced nicely apart and because the ceilings are so high the noise level is very low. The server, Lydia, was warm and...friendly. The prices are reasonable and the portions are very large. The bad: The food is VERY greasy. We began with an order of fried pickles which, when we got down to the bottom of the basket, was literally sitting in a pool of grease. The boneless wings, which were garlic Parmesan flavored, were also sitting in a pool of grease and tasted more like grease than garlic or Parmesan cheese. The fried items should be drained better so that they do not leave a puddle of grease in the bottom of the serving basket which is very unappetizing.More

Stopped in for some wings and a couple of beers before the Christmas parade. Nicole our server was great and we had a huge order of chicken wings. They were fried to perfection and seasoned just right. If you want a sports bare atmosphere that...is also family friendly with great food and service. This is it.More

Had a Sat lunch on the way to Southern Pines and all four meals were good. Large selection to choose from with a variety of pup food and dinner style plates. Mild wings were great though a bit spicier than typically mild. Salads are available...and the place is a renovated dold downtown building adding charm and character.More
