“Great reliable, moderate price food in casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

They call it a sports bar (and there are plenty of TV's) but I just consider it a local favorite. No need to dress up, great service, delicious food and moderate price. I love the tomato soup and grilled cheese. Also the grilled salad. My husband's favorite is the pecan crusted rainbow trout. Always order the fried banana peppers for an appetizer. Children are welcome too. They don't mind splitting a check if you are with a group. Plenty of parking too.

“Breakfast hot spot for locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

My breakfast included a four egg omelet, breakfast potatoes, and two biscuits with sausage gravy for $10. My friend had the pork chop. He said it was good. It definitely looked good.

Despite strip mall location, great sporty atmosphere inside. Very friendly service. Very popular; the place was packed.

“Go Blue!”

Saw this restaurant while I was driving by looking for a great place to eat and watch a game. People there are really friendly and will have a drink or two with you. Great southern food selection.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Great service. Heather was very helpful in making recommendations and letting me know more about menu items. She was spot on with her recommendation of the Brussels sprouts...delicious! The meatloaf and jalapeño cheese grits were also very tasty.
