“Average food, decent service”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

This restaurant is very average. The food is doable but you won't leave praising anything about this place, including the atmosphere. It's a restaurant/hotel. Plus it's pricey! One of us didn't even drink any alcohol and the bill got to $56 for two (1 appetizer, a couple of beers, two mid priced entrees). Head to Shepardstown, WV for a much better meal.

“Fine choice if you are staying in the hotel”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The food was good and our waitress was great. It was freezing in there. I probalby wouldn't choose it if I hadn't been staying in the hotel.

“Bartender was extremely rude, unwelcoming.”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Will not return again. Will not recommend. Bartender was extremely rude. Both staff members clearly had intentions of going home early therefore, treated us rudely and denied good service.

“Good Entertainment, Not So Good Food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The décor is rustic and a bit out of date. I liked the vaulted ceiling, but overall the place can use a face lift. The Elvis tribute show was definitely an experience. Although the impersonator did not resemble Elvis in looks, he put on a great show as he captivated the audience interacting during various classic songs.

Unfortunately the food was not as good as the show. My split pea soup was so thick it could be spread on bread like peanut butter. The hamburger was over cooked and our ribs did not have the barbeque flavor even though the barbeque was outside blazing.

Service and value were alright. Drinks were reasonable.
