Great food with a great party atmosphere as the majority of the restaurant is an open-air facility with a stage for live band performances. There are tables located inside too if the fresh air is too much for some.

Had an excellent meal last night ... and, the place was fairly packed with a conference, as well as several local people. The staff was friendly and quick with service, and the country music was great ... except a little too loud for a bar.

The food is good and they have lots of options even some vegetarian dishes. This place is always pretty loud so be prepared to yell to have a conversation. It does get packed and people do sometimes bump into you. It a little better if you go for lunch and not dinner.

Price was $10 for a burger (I had the BBQ Burger - BBQ sauce, Bacon and Cheeze) but it was delicious. Service was good and very friendly.

Great food, quick service and generous portions. Can't go wrong with the chicken fried steak platter!

Great food. Mostly self service but that's what you expect in a big area like this. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the food and the live music.

We stopped on a Friday afternoon for lunch. We ordered inside and then grabbed a table outside. Food was delivered quickly and it was so good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. Staff was very friendly and we had a nice lunch. Will definitely return! I got the Hellfire burger and if you like spicy food you should try... More

Went with a friend to this place by recommendation of one of the staff at a nearby hotel. High-priced bar fare. Paid $13.00 for an oyster po'boy. Although the oysters were ok, the sandwich was on a completely sliced bun/roll. Not the best way to serve a po'boy. (One end should have been left together to keep the food from... More

Stopped to eat on a Thursday night. You have to order food at one place and then go to the bar and order for your drinks. We ordered the peel and eat shrimp and fried shrimp/catfish dinners. The peel and eat shrimp were horrible. They were mushy and had way too much of some kind of seasoning poured on them... More

This place charges $1 each time you use your credit card at the bar. Someone should tell the proprietors that it's 2016. What an absurd way to make money off of your patrons - akin to airline baggage fees in my opinion. You order your food at one counter and drinks separately at the bar. Ironically, after placing your own... More
