Had lunch with spouse and her 2 Sister's from Madison. Everyone was pleased with their meal, including desserts. Sister's were surprised that Freeport had such a nice dining establishment and commented on the extremely reasonable prices.

My husband and I found this gem on your site when we looked for a lazy Saturday lunch spot. We ordered the Bourbon Bbq Chicken sandwich and Beef Brisket sandwich. The bourbon sauce and bbq sauce were excellent. Double battered fries and coleslaw are served...More

Not impressed. The food was lukewarm. This restaurant is closing its doors anyway. It is for sale. The atmosphere is good though.
