The food and staff were awesome. I went for my birthday dinner. I ordered the bbq brisket, grilled vegetable, and sweet potatoe fries. I am picked not wanting fries full of grease. These were absolutely impeccable if I may say. Extremely satisfied.

This has a lot of character with old signs a antiques every where you look. Lots of different beers with a friendly bartender to serve your needs. Seating was prompt and the hostess courteous. Waitress was prompt and help full. Salad was great and it and the biscuits came promptly. The food took a little while maybe because of the... More

We came here after a 40 min drive from Rochester. We were seated by a very friendly young woman who was also our waitress. The restaurant atmosphere was very interesting and eclectic. We went around 5pm on a Tuesday. We had our orders taken promptly, politely and were served quickly too. I had a 2 meat sampled and my husband... More

Was not happy with the food. stopped in at opening, order the chicken. it was dried out and most likely left over from the day before. Tried it again and same thing. waste of time and money.

I've been here many times with family. It's a fun atmosphere, and the food is good for the area. Staff is accommodating and generally friendly.

Extremely slow service & over priced food. Kept giving it another try but this was the last. Great potential but not worth the aggravation. Many other better options in the area.

If you get the five-meat combo, you'll be bringing home more than one doggie bag. It's all good, just more than a normal human can eat. All the menu items that we've tried have been tasty. The service, however, can be hit and miss.

Service and food were horrible. Bartender could not be bothered to seat us even though it said wait to be seated. Waitress was missing in action and very rude. We asked questions about the menu and she acted like she was too busy to answer even though we were the only people dining and there were 2 people at the... More

Lots of choices on the menu and everything we ordered was delicious. Handicap access was difficult. Once we figured out where to go we had to wait in the cold for someone to unlock the door and let us in.
