Retiree golf group played golf near here so we stopped after we were done. Everyone that ate food loved it. Bartender took very good care of the group, 13 in total. Would go back.

Love their Wednesday night fried chicken special! Other food is good too, but I can't pass up that meal. Every part of that special is delicious. One of my favorite spots.

We were looking for a place to eat close to our hotel after a long day at track. This bar and grill was in walking distance, so we went with it. It was a fantastic choice! They seated our party of 10 very quickly. The wait staff was very attentive, friendly and checked on us frequently. Our food was served... More

This one is definitely a sports bar, but the food is good and the prices are decent. No real surprises on the menu but its all well done and the service couldn't be better!

It was an average place. More of a bar that serves food. I can't complain about what I got but I won't rave about it either. Did go back for a second visit but this was after we had dinner and wanted drinks.

Consistently good food and friendly service. Quaint and cozy yet not overly noisy. We have mostly enjoyed lunch and dinner here but have been told by many people we know, that their breakfast is excellent - we only wish they were open for breakfast on Sunday! Our favorite here is the fried chicken dinner - always piping hot and very... More

We have been here several times for a great breakfast but ate supper there last night. Reasonable prices and great service too. We both had catfish fillets which were fried and moist and delicious. The fillets were served with your choice of potato and salad or vegetable and garlic toast. Everything was very good, served hot and the waitress was... More
