“Unexpected Professionalism”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Stopped in for lunch and ate in the bar. Server was really busy but got to us - no problem. Sat for the longest time waiting for food and eventually someone comes by to let us know they made a mistake and our order was just now put in - can we offer a soup or chili...? Food was only actually about 5 minutes away at that point. Arrived hot and perfect. He had bbq tri-tip sliders and I had bbq chicken and rib combo. Restaurant comped the meal - who knew that still happened?

“Its ok...”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Foods a bit average, can get busy at which time service tends to break down, Happy hour drinks are good but a bit inconsistent. First drink was mainly lemonade and cherry, second drink was mainly rum.

“Great Hamburgers!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have enjoyed various items on the menu but it seems that our favorite is their hamburgers. Not dried out and because they grind their own hamburger daily you always have a fresh hamburger not a frozen patty. Great strawberry lemonade too! My husband especially likes the buckets of peanuts and being able to just brush the shells on the floor.

The service has always been very good with a friendly wait staff, and the prices are very good. One of our favorite places to eat.

“Going downhill fast”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We've had good experiences here in the past but this visit was terrible. Our server was good but she couldn't make up for the very mediocre food...she even voluntarily brought me another steak when she saw how fatty and meager the first piece was. My potato was overcooked and my daughter's pulled pork was sickly sweet. The place was not very busy (though it was a weeknight) but even so it felt like the place was kind of dirty and the staff was disorganized and not very interested in the customers. We won't try them again.

Thank John T
