i'm not one to be real adventuresome unless someone suggests a new place. i'm glad i went. the cheeseburger was really good, the other party had the grilled chicken sandwich. all done nicely and the waitstaff are really nice. it's a relaxed place to have a cold one or two and have a simple meal.

Amazing chicken fried steak if you are there on a Thursday! Better than grandma's! Good place to stop for a cold one after a day in the sun.

Even though there is a non smoking area, there is nothing blocking the smoke from the rest of the smoking area. Service was slow. Had to keep asking for refills. Some appetizers never made it to the table. Evidentally they have a napkin shortage which is a shame since most of their food selections are handhelds. View is nice and... More

We stopped by for lunch and had a very good time. We started with the Jalepeno poppers. These deep fried jalepenos are tasty and not too hot. They were delicious. I had a bacon and swiss cheese burger for lunch. I enjoyed every bite. The margarita was pretty good too. The wait staff was attentive and the atmosphere was fun... More

This place is an awesome place for cold beer and friends to get together! Lots of room and great service keeps the beer flowing. Remember to designate a driver and "Salude" the fried shrimp are perfect.

Not a great place to eat, but will return. Customer got in late so really the only place open after 8:00 on a Sunday. Each of us had the cheeseburgers with fries. Once again not the best bugers I've eaten, but will most likely go again when I'm in town. In all fairness ee arrived 20 minutes before closing (serving... More

Food is OK, service was very good. This is a sports bar with lots of TV's. Some of the fish plates are good, most of the rest is not too good. And it's expensive. There are many places with better food at more reasonable prices.

When you hear the name of a place called the "Poor Man's Country Club" you instantly form a mental picture of what to expect . In fact, you have this mental image right now...and you are mostly correct. It is an unpretentious bar/restaurant that makes no bones about who it's trying to attract. The food is bar food and the...
