Pet friendly patio. Very friendly service. Nice patrons and a good burger and chicken sandwich. Wine was a little pricey. That is the only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 stars.

My husband and I had been traveling all day with a small dog. He wasn't interested in eating any more fast food. We found Big Shotz Tavern and were able to eat outside. My husband had a nice steak that they waiter recommended. They also had a variety of beers. Because we were eating outside, we were permitted to let... More

Bar maids both nights were fun. Had some appetizers and kept ordering more. The wings good. Tenders good. Cold beverages. Had fun with the locals. Typical small town Tavern feel. Never felt uncomfortable but welcomed.

Jumped off the interstate, checked into the hotel, drove 200 yards across the street to the Big Shotz. Drinks were good, food was better than sports bar food. Very convenient to our hotel. Highly recommended!

We visited about a month ago and were disappointed in the food. We decided to give it another try tonight, and found the exact opposite. My burger was juicy. My wife's steak was cooked exactly like she wanted it. The bartender was accommodating. Whatever changes you have made, keep it up. We will be back

We were looking for somewhere to eat while in the area. Options range from salads, to sandwiches, burger and pizza. I had the fish tacos which were really good. Hubby got a taco salad with steak which he enjoyed. Lots of options on the kids menu too.

I always make it a point to eat at Big Shotz every time I am in Statesville. The wait staff is always friendly, and always provides service with a smile. The regulars are a friendly bunch, and treat me like I'm an old friend, which makes it a very comfortable, enjoyable experience. One of the best parts of the visit... More

My business associate and I got to the hotel after a training meeting. It was late but wanted to get something to eat. The bar tender was not in a good mood when we ordered. While the bar food was OK the negative vibe from the bar tender made the whole experience terrible. I would not go back!

Thank TheClozer
