We saw the sign that said Pizza, Steak, Seafood. We should have noted that this was a busy weekend and the place was nearly empty. This was just not well prepared bar food. If you want to play a game of pool, I would say perfect. if you want to eat some decent food...go somewhere else. Even the fries sucked. Really. If you cant even get hot french fries..its time to change cooks.

Our family ordered the Oriental Salad, The Irish Bangers and the Baby Back Ribs.... horrindus... absolutely terrible!!!! The ranch and honey mustard was nasty and the salad was FAR from fresh. The Irish Bangers was basically breakfast sausage when waitress assured us that they were bratwurst... last not but least the Baby Back Ribs were dried and nothing but bones, also was served with the worst coleslaw you will ever taste!

Waitress not very knowledgeable of menu and when we complained about the horrible food, we were treated as if we were trying to get out of paying for our dinner which we barely touched. Manger came out, she was very unpleasant looked at us with disgust while we explained the problems with our meals. She did wipe our bill which only left us paying for two beers. Not one apology was give by either the manager or the waitress. Never will go back and do not reccomend it to anyone.

We went here when we first got to lake lure because it was located on the river and had a great outside seating area. We enjoyed watching the geese around the river.
We sat at the bar and ordered chicken tenders and fries. The chicken came out, but not the fries. The bartender was great-she said she'd get us some fries. When they arrived they were soggy and undercooked.
The place was not that busy, but we waited a very long time for chicken tenders and fries. Maybe we went on a bad day. Not sure if we will return.

We love this place! It's spacious and clean. The Screaming Eagle Chicken Sandwich is the best. The wings and the pizza are really good too. The laid back atmosphere makes the perfect setting after a day on Lake Lure or a climb in Chimney Rock park. When in Lake Lure, we go here more than any other restaurant.
