“Great burgers”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

On a Sunday evening there are few places open for dinner. We decided to give Boondocks a try. The 3 of us each tried a different burger. Piled high and delicious. Surely a place to go to again when we are back in town.

“Enjoyable first visit”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

My husband and I drove on a beautiful August day in the mountains and decided to try out this restaurant . We ordered the onion rings, pecan pear chicken salad, and the barbeque chicken sandwich - all were wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal sitting in the outdoor seating area. Our waitress was great. And I couldn't resist ordering dessert although the servings of our meal was very large. I ordered the creme brulee -awesome - only wish - that it was a larger serving for the price. We will definitely try this place again.

Reviewed August 14, 2014

This place is great with the micro-brewery. And now they are expanding building a bigger brewery for more great beer. Had a small dinner and the food was great. We sat outside and watched it rain and enjoyed the view.

“No offense, just not better than average”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

After trying to order several beers and being told they were out, I finally had to ask "which beers do you actually have". I understand taps run out but the available should outnumber the unavailable.
Sadly I didn't get to taste the in house ipa but heard the new brewery is being built close to location.
Impressed the burger was cooked as requested considering its size.
It's a place to visit in town so judge for yourself. This is not a review to keep anyone away or bash the place. Wasn't awful but not spectacular. Advised the burgers were great, they weren't that bad but I've easily had better.

“At least be honest!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I came to Jefferson for a weekend getaway for our anniversary. This place was so disappointing. I ordered the chicken fingers which os one of my favorite things to order at restaurants. The description says fresh, battered, etc.. I am thinking these are hand battered from their description and charging 9 bucks for them. The waitress brings me my plate with 2 chicken fingers. What is up with that? I asked her if that is how many you really get for 9 bucks. She said that she thought they give you three and went back to give me another piece. While she goes back, I bite into one. This stuff is from a box tasted like Tyson from the store. I asked her if they were frozen and pre-made. She said she was pretty sure they were handmade. They were garbage and she said she was giving me a credit. Point is don't lie in your description and say something is fresh and make it sound like the cooks are hand battering the chicken. For 9 bucks, you can do better and should do better.
