Salad was not as ordered. Steak tips were okay. Fries were soggy and waitress was not very good; didn't pay attention to my order and couldn't answer my menu questions.

We decided to try this on the advice of the hotel we stayed at. Easy to get to, friendly staff and nice selection of beverages. Food at best was good, but not outstanding. We dined on some wings (good), pork carnitas ( a little disappointed) and wraps (good). Server was new, so didn't know the menu all that well, but... More

The food was very good. I couldnt believe they served such a big group as fast as they did. The place is very popular. There were people waiting to get in the door.

Stopped for drinks and appetizers when we first got into town. Went back a couple of hours later for dinner. Smoked brisket very good.

Good atmosphere, food is decent - ribs are good - overall, decent place to have a few drinks and a snack and relax. Many of the locals make it their lunch spot - Waitresses are friendly and service is good.

We stopped here on a visit to Fort Scott NHS. The Shark club sandwich and Reuben both had a lot of meat and were very tasty. French fries were hot and good. Service was friendly and fast.

This is far more than bar food. Wait staff is good and generally friendly. The menu is extensive and offers something for everyone including children. My only complaint is that they are too rigid on substituting some side items. I hear this complaint often from my friends.

Great local place! Lots of choices and a great beer selection! The building is a cool old place built in the late 1800s with lots of character! The staff was friendly and the food was delicious! Great hand cut fries! Definitely recommend this place!!
