“Watch For the Specials”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

The specials are the thing here. Every night of the week it's something different. Wings and oysters are both decent. Burgers are nothing to write home about.

It's frequently pretty crowded, and something about the shape of the place makes it get quite loud very quickly. The high-top tables make me feel like I'm on stage, and I always have to shell out two extra smackers so the Musclebabies can give George Washington a purple beard and an eyepatch and affix him to the wall. No me gusta shelling out extra money, for any reason, so points off for that decor faux pas.

“Go for the Burger~!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

I've tried much on the menu. The raw oysters are pretty good--certainly brought in from the best place in the region--Apalachicola. But go for the burgers. Not that there's a lot of competition for anything good in the Auburn-Opelika area for restaurants (can count on 1 hand, really), but these are VERY good burgers. Cooked to your liking, on a good formed bun, and FRESH (not frozen).

Recently, we sat in the old brick courtyard--a great place to eat when the weather is fine.

We go every time now...mostly for the burgers. The beer options are pretty good, with a few craft options, as well. FORGET Niffer's unless you really wanted some chain restaurant but couldn't get in!

“Better!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had been served mediocre food the last 2 times we had been here. Recently, the food was much better. The service was better, also. We'll go back!

“Best French fries ever!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Love the wings, burgers but the fries are those old time crinkle and they taste wonderful. If that ever changes, this place will not be on my to do list. We eat here quite a bit. I would like it if the waitresses didn't wear mini shorts, modesty please! I don't tip her based on her legs.
