Good burgers. Extremely noisy. If they reduced the noise level it could be a nice place to go out for dinner. Now one cannot have a conversation, with four people at the table.

I tried the fish there & it was so good & crispy. Also tried their burgers & have to say they are huge & delicious. I wish they offered delivery service but well worth going there just outside Sun City.

Tried this place after a day of touring, found it crowded, both inside and out, and as noisy as you'd expect a sports bar to be when no home team was playing. But the menu was broad and the wine and beer lists just fine. We had maybe the best fish and chips we've ever had, better even than in... More

I am a local and would eat here more often but they often draw a big crowd and I don't like to wait. As one reviewer rudely pointed out, they often have many seniors here because it is adjacent to a retirement community. Contrary to his observations, many stop here after playing tennis, pickleball or to listen to music and... More

Have eaten there several times over 4 years. Finally decided the food is unremarkable but acceptable. Always crowded probably because there aren't any non fast-food restaurants in this end of town. The place is more of a bar (outdoor tiki hut included) than a restaurant. So this is your place if you like to wait for a table in a... More

I've eaten here numerous times. The staff is always friendly, the food is always consistent, the price is always reasonable. Will it wow you and knock your socks off? Probably not, but it also won't disappoint you and leave you praying you won't die of food poisoning. It's always consistent on the food, which is good. The meatloaf sandwich could... More

Went to watch football and enjoy ourselves. Plenty of tv's, lots of bar food (with specials), beer & wine was flowing. This is a Penn State Bar but has all the major games playing; tv's inside, outside under the tent and at the Tiki Bar. You can even order dinner, service staff wants to serve you but they get busy...

Last week went in and ordered a salad with grilled chicken. Nearly 30 minute wait and chicken was stone cold. Today, October 5, decided to give it another try. Ordered wings appetizer and unsweetened tea with no lemon. Tea came with the lemon. Nearly 30 minute wait again for the wings. Ordered side of celery only and NO carrots. Waited... More

Yet This was right beside my motel. We walked over and so glad we did. It was a little packed but the food was delicious. They also have an ice creme bar. Very tasty.

We were told about this place by some locals. Live music with outside seating overlooking a lagoon near the Hampton Inn. Friday evening, busy Friday night. Local crowd and some vacationing folks like us. Place was hopping so we grabbed a couple seats at the bar. Noise level was high due to all hard surfaces and full crowd. The lone... More
