The prime rib arrived cooked to perfection. For whatever reason, the horseradish sauce was really good! My friend had the tri tip which she enjoyed as well. The real star of the dinner were the rolls served with sweet whipped butter. Oh my GOSH!! Pillow soft white bread inside. I could have eaten a whole plate full!!

I've tried this restaurant on several occasions and always have been underwhelmed. Their BBQ is average at best. Don't bother ordering a steak unless you are happy with tasteless tough cuts. Their warm rolls (appetizer) are wonderful, eat them and leave. Overpriced under delivered quality!

Recently ate here and strongly recommend the food. The ribs and coconut shrimp as well as the sides were very good. Attended with a group of 20 and staff were very helpful and gracious. Ended up playing miniature golf with several friends after dinner and had a great time on the course behind the restaurant. Will be back!

My family and I have eaten at this great restaurant many times. The service ours usually great and the food is good. What more needs to be said? They do have a nice outdoor area for the warmer months and they serve dinner delicious rolls before your meal. Try them, you won't be disappointed.

Excellent food and nice variety on the menu. A fun place to go to have a great meal and a round of miniature golf. The golf is not elaborate but it is fun! Has a nice outside area that can be used for bigger groups.

If you're lucky enough to have the baked potato soup on the menu when you're there - it's a must order, ribs and the rolls are the best, too!

Met a group of friends for lunch and it was indeed great food. I had the tri tip salad and the greens were fresh, meet perfectly cooked. The little ladies with is had what looked to be really yummy Mac and cheese with a huge serving of mandarin oranges and little activity to keep them busy. Love the place except... More

Happy hour drinks on the cheap. $3.50 for wine and they had food options at the same price. The food was good and the service was fast and friendly.
