“Don't waste your time or money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

This place has gone done the tubes. They use to mix a good drink that was worth the money paid. The bartender this past weekend was an expert at opening a can of beer and that was it. The mixed drink I ordered was strong but tasted gross. What has happened to this place? Your old staff made strong drinks that tasted great, please, please, please get it back together. I know tending bar isn't easy but can't you find people who know the art of it. The place was dead as well, makes one wonder if your staff has something to do with this. How are you people paying your bills?

“A hilarious insight into small town America ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Three travelling students - we turned up having seen the place from the road - unlike anywhere I've been before- the clientele was the epitome of Middle America- with some of Asheville's hippies thrown in- really pretty setting by the river, although the motel and swimming pool leave a little be desired despite adding to he hilarity for us- stop for a drink and you will definitely be entertained!

“Seedy guests, lousy food, not clean”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I was surprised to see the great reviews of this place. It has a great location going for it with a nice space beside the river. However...

We arrived pretty hungry with many open tables available. We waited about 30-40 minutes before our server told us there was a computer issue and no one had received our order. When the food finally arrived (about an hour wait altogether), it was very poor quality. My "farm fresh vegetable" wrap contained what tasted like old store-bought hummus, about 5 pieces of minute tomato chunks, a slice of cheese and 3 tiny fragments of lettuce. Intoxicated people seemed to be making laps around the pool and out into the lawn area, teenagers were sitting behind us singing a song about diarrhea, and a scantily clad family was rolling around on the picnic tables in front of us. I know, it's a tiki bar!

Weak drinks too. Unsupervised kids in the pool. Table had bits of food from last guests.

Lots of great restaurant choices near the river/lake here...don't have to do this one.
